Megatron

Decepticon Leader

Megatron, sometimes called Lord Megatron by his loyal followers, is the leader of the Decepticons in the Transformers universe. As such he's the chief bad guy for the stories. This makes him almost as popular as chief good guy Optimus Prime.

History

As with many of the Transformers characters, Megatron's history is complicated and varies depending on which strand of the mythology you follow.

In the animated TV series, Megatron was created by the Decepticons following their defeat at the hands of the Autobots and was their first transforming robot. Megatron waged war on the Autobots who responded by creating Optimus Prime. The massive war depleted the planet Cybertron of most of its natural energy resources forcing the inhabitants to explore other planets such as the Earth.

The 2005 Transformers movie saw Megatron vs Optimus Prime fighting for control of the Earth, Megatron as invader and Optimus Prime as defender.

Powers

Megatron is first and foremost a ruthless military leader. His plans may appear strange but usually have a logic known only to him. He believes that the Transformers should conquer and control the universe.

Megatron carries a fusion cannon and an energon mace. For even more power he is able to transform and shrink into a modified version of a Walther P38 pistol, a strangely anachronistic yet highly effective weapon.
