The Greatest Moments of Optimus Prime - Part 5

I really am running out of things to put on here, so here's another of Prime's best moments...

During the original Marvel comic series, Optimus Prime seemed to die and come back to life more times than Shane Richie's career. During Bob Budiansky's run, Prime willingly allows himself to be destroyed after losing a battle to Megatron in a computer generated world...




Wow. That's sound logic, Prime. You killed a bunch of characters in a computer game, so you now have to sacrifice yourself. Oh-kay...



Unknown to anyone, though, Prime is kept alive as a computer sprite... No, seriously...

God, even when I was a kid, I knew that was fucking lame...

Of course, he was brought back when Hasbro released a new toy, and we got this rather underwhelming image from Budiansky and artist José Delbo...


So, it fell to Simon Furman to show us how Optimus Prime should be killed and brought back from the dead...


Yeah, that's right: Optimus Prime goes toe-to-fucking-toe with Unicron and wins! His body is completely destroyed, but his spirit lives on, which leads to his triumphant return in the final issue of Transformers...


Fucking awesome.
