Finally! The long overdue Hasbro Universe comes together under one flag, IDW’s Revolution! Our first taste of the run that will crossover into many Hasbro properties, including M.A.S.K., ROM, Transformers and others was launched at SDCC 2016 with Issue #0. To be honest, the book was kinda vanilla and didn’t open to many eyes they way I would have hoped. However fans of the many lines that showed up in issue #0 seen growing excitement, at that point that’s all that mattered. Fast forward to the eve of Revolution and it’s time to kick off what will hopefully be the future of all these brands and a combined Hasbro Universe….. IDW did not disappoint!

New information was just released about the upcoming IDW “Revolution” series that will change everything we know about the Hasbro Universe and merge it all together. Thanks to CBR we now have a ton of cover images and story background to go over.
“The background is, Optimus Prime has publicly declared Earth to be under his protection and part of Cybertron’s Council of Worlds. This isn’t Dark Optimus; he’s doing good things — at least from his point of view — but the people of Earth are naturally going to be concerned about this turn of events.
Now, one of the reasons Earth has been important to the Transformers is this substance called Ore-13. This has a long history in the Transformers comics, but the short version is it can be converted to Energon, which is the Transformers‘ fuel source. That means the Earth is one of the few places in the galaxy where Transformers can live — it has a food source, basically. But Ore-13 has always had other properties — an ability to supercharge Cybertronians, for one.
Something starts happening to Ore-13 around the world, making it unstable, and all signs point to Optimus Prime, who has no idea why this is happening. That sets the stage for “Revolution.””
