Optimus Prime - The War at Home - Ben Rosenthal
1. Optimus Prime sits in his seat in Cybertron Parliment. He is their leader - the governing body. In front of him a Decepticon stands, yelling at a seated Autobot. Both are dressed in robes. This is a parliamentary debate. The war has been over for years.
The war has been over for years.
The Autobots were victorious over Megatron and his guerilla forces.
2. A close up of the Deceptacon yelling his vitriol.
I was elected to lead.
Only this battlefield the weapons of choice are name calling--
3. A close up of the Autobot leader smirking smugly as he is being yelled at.
--and looks of smug self-righteousness.
4. A close up of Prime. He is bored. His eyes are distant.
This is what I fought for.
5. Prime is out on the road on Earth, speeding along a highway in his truck form. He has run away.
It is not a victory I can be a part of
