Fortunately, a solution may be coming… Wheeljack, Hound, and some of Cybertron’s greatest (and most infamous) scientists seek to reactivate the Ark program and evacuate the planet with huge spaceships.

As the two new leaders of Cybertron’s most dominant factions step into their new roles, one finds himself seeking council from one of the four Great Generals-for better or for worse.

As Optimus and his recruits take off to stop an even deadlier threat-an asteroid belt powerful enough to destroy the metal world-Megatron leads a team of Decepticons after in hot pursuit! But what other motivations does Prime have for this mission? How does it benefit Shockwave’s goals? And what does it all have to do with a secret on Earth in the eleventh century?

Where-and when–are Marty McFly and his pal, the Autobot Gigawatt? That’s what Biff Tannen wants to know because if he can find them, he can help his bosses-the Decepticons-find what’s left of the Resistance and pound ’em into next week. And if Biff can’t find them… well… he’d better prepare to be on the receiving end of a Decepticon whupping!
