First Comic Appearance: Transformers: The Movie #1
"My power is everything; defeat is absurd!"
Profile: Galvatron is the new name and identity for Megatron when his remains are metamorphosized by Unicron. Galvatron is Megatron to the ultimate degree, more evil, more powerful, and even less subject to emotion or decency. Through the powers of Unicron, Galvatron's own powers are augmented continuously so that his strength becomes so vast that his arrogance and confidence are boundless. As long as Unicron exists, Galvatron is invincible, but Galvatron's conceit and greed for dominance are so great he even plots against Unicron and hopes to retain his new might without him.
Abilities: He possesses enough strength to pulverize an Autobot into scrap metal. In robot mode, he carries a laser that emits chemically-produced, direct-current electricity.

So glad he won....
I love Galvs in all his forms both cartoon and the comic one. Hes just an ace character.
In the comic the whole time thing was done so well, time wars being one of my fave storylines. The Prime vs Galvie fight was cool with Galvs seeing what he wnated to see when hedlost it completely.
I love moive Galvatron , he was just so evil, a fitting successor to megs. The 3rd season was even better with Frank doing the voice again. The hihg pitched screming mixed with a bit of Megs here and there is just spot on.
[glow=blue,2,300]Interesting part about the voices there Min..I mean Rainy. I've had this inner fight with myself on that one. And the show voice has me. I don't know why, I guess its just the whole crazy in the head issue. Movie Galvatron seemed more in control, (Then again Unicron had him on a leash.)
But Galvatron is a step up from Megs, except for may be 'War Within' Megs.
Now here's a question, we know Galvy was Megs but does that mean Megs died when he became Galvy, or is he still alive and reprogrammed?[/glow]
[glow=blue,2,300]But thats the comic, and the UK story right? I also saw the fanfic comic Don Figueror was drawing before he was hired by DreamWave, he had Megatron in it and he brought him back form Unicron's head.
By the way, where did the 'Voices in Galvatron's Head' come from?[/glow]
[glow=blue,2,300]But wouldn't that suit 2 Optimus or Rodimus Prime better since they carry the Matrix which contains all the dead Autobot's sparks? Echo's of Unicron works, plus it could be all the dead souls from Unicron's planet attacks. And perhaps one of those voices belong to Megatron? I'm beginning to freak myself out.[/glow]

My take on the Straxus thing...
In the special one off black and white UK sotry after Time wars, the real megs made his way to Megatron/Straxus's throne room on CYbertron. The two scrapped, during the proces sit was revealed that after failing to take over MMegatron Straxus's mind fled to another 'standby' body that had been re pregrammed to think and act like Megs.
Ladadadada....... Megatron blew up the spca bridge after his fight with Predaking and ended up in the dead end. The new megs (and straxus) went from Cybertron to earth and hid uner the london tunnels (GI JOE cross over). SHockwave found him and sent hgim to fight Galvatron then we had time wars with the two of them working together.
The real Megatron convinced the fake on with Straxus in his head that he had to rid the Decepticons of Straxus, 'its what Megatron would do!' He blew his head off and the original Megs was left standing there.
In short the Time Wars MEgs was fake. Doesnt explian why Galvatron had memories of being that Megatron but hey it was the US influence that screwed it up with that Pretender Starscream crap!
Anyway as for the is it Megs in a new body or a reprogramme dnew entity thats a seperate debate all together...
Anyway all this reminds me of the STraxus playset i need to finish...
Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
