NOTES

Revised dialogues and lettering.

First published as a "Transformers Mosaic" piece.

The story takes place in-between panels 4/5 of page 11 of Seeds Of Deception: Sentinel Prime.

Boltax was created for the Marvel US Transformers comics by Bob Budiansky and José Delbo: issue #48, "The Flames Of Boltax!"

Panel 2 is taken directly from "The War Within vol.1" #1, page 1. That's Sentinel's hand, with different colors (for reasons we will address in our "Seeds Of Deception: Sentinel Prime).

Sentinel Prime, even though repeatedly mentioned, never appears in "The War Within". His character design comes from "Spotlight: Optimus Prime" (in both cases, by Simon Furman and Don Figueroa).

Lines in panels 3 and 4 were slightly revised for this version.

"Chosen One" is a reference to G1 Rodimus Prime.

In Marvel UK comics, Rodimus Prime sacrificed himself to become the living prison for Unicron: just like Rodimus, Sentinel Prime will be required to make an ultimate sacrifice.

Some readers though this story to be a nod to the "Matrix" movies trilogy, but I saw the last of these movies only after writing "The Chosen One".
The truth is that the sacrifice of one leader for the good of many is a commom concept, deeply rooted in our literature.

Boltax's last statement is a quote from "Beast Wars" (episode "The Spark").
