Optimus regales the injured Outback with the story of what happened to himself, Prowl and Ratchet when Galvatron time-jumped. The three found themselves in a dimension known as limbo, where they're pitched against Shockwave, Thundercracker and Frenzy by parasitic creatures feeding off their hate. Eventually, the sides work together to free themselves of the creatures' control. The Wreckers then find them at the end of the story, but when Prime gives himself up on the grounds that Outback should receive treatment, Xaaron realises he's the real Optimus.
