History: Using Starscream's attack as a diversion, Megatron broke into the Autobot's Cybertron headquarters and stole the planet map from Vector Prime. Using the map, he traveled to Velocitron, the speed planet, and bullied Ransack and Crumplezone into helping him. While on Velocitron, he raced Override for information on the Cyber Planet Key. Losing the first time, he tried again. This time Hot Shot jumped into the race to try and win. Megatron went to Jungle Planet and lied to Scourge about his plans for the Cyber Planet Key. Using the map, he was able to pinpoint the location of Atlantis, the spaceship that Vector Prime raised from underwater. It was behind the moon. Megatron broke through the defenses and took the Omega Lock before it was completely released, causing the ship to self-destruct. He fought Optimus Prime for possession of the Omega Lock while the ship was tearing itself apart. He lost the Omega Lock, but escaped the ship. After the Great Race concluded, Megatron showed up to steal the Cyber Planet Key. He was beaten by the Savage Claw Mode once again. Starscream had given Megatron a fake map and Megatron followed the signal. When Megatron reached the area that the next Cyber Planet Key was supposed to be, Starscream sprung a trap that encased Megatron and some others in a solid bubble. With the help of Scourge, Megatron was able to free himself from the bubble and traveled to Earth in search of Starscream. The Autobots tried to keep him from destroying Earth looking for Starscream, and in the ensuing battle he received a new Cyber Key power. He destroyed Hot Shot, Red Alert and Scattorshot.
(awesome!) Official Character text::
For millions of years, Megatron has lead fanatical legions of evil Decepticons on their war for conquest of the Universe. A living weapon with dozens of self-inflicted modifications made in the name of increased power and destructive capability, his only weakness is his single-minded desire for the enslavement of the Universe. His intellect, ego and talent for deception are second to none, and he rules his Decepticons with an iron-fisted combination of fear and force of personality. Driven by a nearly insane lust for power, Megatron managed not only to survive the catastrophic implosion of Unicron, but also to absorb much of his power. Now, wearing salvaged pieces of the ancient destroyer's armor, Megatron is awesomely powerful, and is determined to beat Optimus Prime and the Autobots to the lost planet keys.
Now under the protection of Jetfire, Scattorshot and the other Autobots - is a front line in the struggle for domination of the universe. With their home world under threat by the super giant black hole left by the destruction of Unicron, the Autobots and the Decepticons have secretly moved their bases of operation to Earth.
With the help of Vector Prime, and a few humans that have discovered their presence on Earth, the Autobots must race against time and battle unbelievably more powerful Megatron and his new army of Deceptions to recover the lost Planet keys, ancient artifacts missing for eons. What few realize is that this little planet called Earth has played a vital role in the history of Cybertorn for millons of years.
