    they were in a war, and they needed leadership. ultra magnus was the best qualified (later in the series he pretty much became the 'iron hide' of the team).

    i'm guessing it 'sensed' hotrod potential to be a leader (though he was constantly doubting himself in the later series).

    fucking :werd:

    what got me was in the 'ultimate weapon' he finally grows a pair
    then in dark awakening he's like 'optimus prime. fuck yeah. here's your matrix back.'

    i'm happy prime returned, don't get me wrong. in the movie hot rod was cool, but in the series (as rodimus prime) sucked ball bearing ass.

    Ultra Magnus was not worthy of the matrix as he fully believed in his heart that he was a better warrior than leader. Hotrod, however was your typical dickhead that just needed to grow into his responsibility, type character.

    Yeah, I wondered why Hot Rod changed but when Ultra Magnus had it he stayed the same.

    cause ultra magnus was already a badass (too bad he became a nobody in the last season/a nurse to rodimus)

    remind me what "ultimate weapon" was about?

    ultra magnus was supposed to be prime's friend Dion (it was either iron hide or ultra magnus)/....people say magnus since he was left on cybertron to continue the resistance after prime led the Ark to Earth

    Magnus later became leader of defense on cybertron too

    i really have no idea why rodimus was the leader....he was pretty much worthless, even in Five Faces of Darkness

    i mean the rest of the G2 series...he was always whining about how he was no optimus

    i remember in one ep he LOSES the matrix and scourge takes it...

    ultimate weapon - was when metroplex had his transforming cog stolen (the decepticons used a ruse to draw out the autobots - actually there was a fight between cops and some mafiosos - so swindle goes into metroplex and steals it). as the decepticons were retreating, galvatron yells out that he 'still has his ultimate weapon'.
    in the end rodimus 'wakes' up and realizes that galvatron is full of shit, cause he would've used it years ago.

    ultra magnus is believed to be orion paxs' friend (forgot the episode). the arielbots are sent back in time and meet up with orion paks/his girl and their friend at a energy supply depot. at first orion is envious of the 'new' flying robots (the decepticons) and gets duped by megatron and is left for dead (along with his girl and friend). the arielbots arrive in time to see this happen and bring orion paks to alpha trion who redesigns him into optimus prime.
    before optimus and the arielbots go to fight megatron, he ask alpha trion to help his gf and friend. many believe that his friend (who has also a similar color scheme) became ultra magnus.

    so orion pax's (optimus prime) friend - dion (remade by alpha trion into ultra magnus/mainly because alpha trion made a comment on how he was rebuilding autobots to be able to stand up against the decepticons) stayed behind on cyberton to continue the fight. the same with ariel (alita-1).
