Richards Optimus Primes Death page has been visited times
It all started when The Decepticons attack Autobot City with great force, and manage to defeat most of the Autobots there. A young Autobot named Hot Rod and his aged mentor Kup almost get trapped outside the fortress barrier. From within the city, they try to use whatever limited weapons they have to drive away the Decepticons. In a desperate plea for help, the Autobots send a distress signal to their leader Optimus Prime. When Optimus Prime arrives, he finds that the Decepticons have penetrated the outer defenses of the city and are advancing deeper within the station. Utilizing all of the courage, strength, and force for which he is famous, Optimus drives directly toward the pack of Decepticons, taking out a good number of their troops. Then he faces his nemesis Megatron, the ruthless leader of the Decepticons. The two timeless foes engage in personal combat, and after a brutal fight, Optimus manages to get Megatron pinned to the ground. Just as Megatron pleads for mercy, he reaches for a small blaster on the ground out of Prime's range of vision. Hot Rod sees what Megatron is about to do and jumps on top of him. Megatron grabs Hot Rod, uses him as a shield and fires the weapon at Optimus, damaging him beyond repair. Optimus uses his last ounce of strength to knock Megatron over a cliff, rendering him motionless. On his death bed, Optimus Prime passes a sacred object known as the "Matrix of Leadership" to his comrade, Ultra Magnus. Optimus foreshadows that "an Autobot shall rise from our ranks and use the power of the Matrix to light our darkest hour." Prime's utters his final words "'Til all are one..." and turns gray and dies.
