The Broken Mirror, or: They Had To Do A Mirrorverse Eventually
yup, Transformers got a Mirrorverse, courtesy of Transformers Timelines #3 and Botcon 2008.
and it's a fun, if not verbose, place.
For example, it's got one hell of an evil Optimus Prime:
for best results, imagine the Prime-voice from the DRSMOOV vids. It works well here.
also, Cliffjumper's about to learn that you don't apply normal-dimension morality in mirrorversi. (you see, he's fallen in through a portal.)
and lesson learnt. also, love the synchronized laugh.
and now Cliffjumper's firmly learnt that, yup, he's in upside-down land. but if there's an evil Optimus Prime, then surely there must be...
yup, a good Megatron. Sideswipe is on his side, surprisingly, though his motivation runs to the line of " Prime tried to have me assassinated because he thought I was disloyal? Right, that's it, I'm gonna shoot him in the face. "
Sideswipe drops mirror backstory on Cliffjumper:
huh. a crack on Best First. well played.
oddly Earth-like truck forms they got on Cybertron, huh?
(though as they're mentioned in other Shattered Glass material to have picked up transmissions from Earth, that's probably not so much of a thing of note.)
speaking of other worlds, the Decepticons have an opportunity for a decisive blow: Prime's about to launch an Ark, to go out and plunder other worlds, and if they can halt that launch, they can really stick it to him.
Cliffjumper decides to come along, because pretty much these guys are closer to the Autobots he knows than this universe's warped reflections. In the process of planning the attack, though, he discovers another difference in universes...
... and helps to inspire their plan of attack!
also, a cordial Megatron/Starscream relationship? Truly, this is the mirrorverse.
so, anyhow, the 'cons go to attack, the 'bots return fire, Cliffjumper is still confused, Megatron takes a shot from Prime for him, and Cliffjumper uses his glass gas to make the launching platform structurally crap.
and evil!Prime is given to a yell:
bonus: a somewhat surprising person plays the role of power broker in the pages of Fury of Firestorm.
nice laugh he's got going there, i must say.
