NOTES

Continuing the series of Short Stories dedicated to Cybertron's legendary items of power.
They were introduced in The Artifacts, a story followed by Poisoned Chalice.

Original unlettered art on Lau's page. Direct link coming soon!

Nova Prime is the cold and unusual Cybertronian leader that came before Sentinel Prime, as told in Spotlight: Optimus Prime.

The arrogant Nova Prime returns in Paradise Lost.

The Ancients were seen first in The War Within vol 1.. They also appear in Seeds Of Deception: Sentinel Prime.

The new Matrix Case's look first appeared in The War Within vol 1.

Nova Prime begins here a new tradition, just in time for some of the events described in Spotlight: Galvtron. More about this in another Short Story, sooner or later.

What is the sinister black shadow that accompanies the metamorphosis of the Goblet? Does it come from Nova Prime?

The Matrix Goblet will be restored by Optimus Prime: after the events of Stormbringer and the beginning of the Interplanetary Cold War against the Decepticons, Optimus realizes how foolish and dangerous may be for him to carry the Matrix Case inside his chest. Not to mention the fact that the Artifact belong to the Cybertronians, not to a single mech.
Hence, the Matrix Goblet is stored in a most safe place, whose existence is considered a myth by the Decepticon. These events (that one day will become another Short Story) explain why Optimus had no Matrix Case within him in Escalation.

The saga continues in Short Story: Throwdown, Constant Moons: Paradise Lost, Short Story: The Shape Of Things To Come.

It seems the Original Matrix was key to the secret Autobot rite of the Chug-a-Lug of Leadership. :)

A fantastic new interpretation of the classic "Matrix in a Prime's chest"! I love the art too! ^__^

Interesting thing here, it looks like that Nova's force of will can shape the goblet as he likes, whilst for Sentinel Prime the staff seemed spontaneously take shape on his bearer's character.

Yes, the Matrix/Source reacted very differently to these two characters... because there's a secret behind Nova!

Very cool! Did the matrix evolve Nova Prime like it does to Optimus?

Yes, but it happened the first time he received the Matrix fire.
This story is about his "renewal rite" ;)

You guys... :wow:
I can't get over how much I love the ways you're fleshing out the comic book canon. I love how well thought-out this is, how you've made it mesh in so well with all the different comic storylines.

Slag you, Nova!
