Far away in a distant galaxy, the people of the planet Prysmos lived in an age of great technology. They had taken control of all of the sources of energy, and enjoyed a life of comfort and ease for 7,000 years... but this was not to last, for the realignment of the three blazing suns of Prysmos signaled the end of the age of science and technology. When all of the electrical energy have been depleted from the world, an age of magic began. But it would take some time before men would believe this.
Years passed, and as the old order collapsed a new more primitive order rose form the rubble. Knowing that the balance of power between Darkstorm and Leoric could easily be tipped, both frantically searched for a military advantage. The ancient wizards Merklyn contacted both parties and told them that he was seeking brave knights, men and women of vision, as he wished to teach them the ways of magic.
Several knights then quest for magic, with only 14 succeeding. They were rewarded by giving them animal totems, which represented their true self in animal form. Those knights who carried staffs were also given great powers, such as Wisdom, Knowledge, Destruction, Invulnerability, Fear and a variety of others. Those knights without staffs were given the ability to empower vehicles. The two sides battle each other for control of the magic, as well as the rule of New Valarak and Prysmos.
This 13 part cartoon series, 6 part comic mini-series and short lived toyline is given new life by the team behind Transformers At The Moon.
So, we come to the end, the final issue I the five-part Transformers vs Visionaries books from IDW Publishing. This issue starts with a monologue from Leoric as he enters New Prysmos, with the help of a reformed Cryotek. The pair quickly dispose of Craggor (always nice to see a series two character) before Leoric converts Cryotek’s armour back to Spectral Knights blue.
The scene then jumps to Witterquick and Mortdred, who are still captured. Leoric arrives and frees his old colleague, leaving Mortdred behind.
We jump again, this time to the Planetary Control Core where Galadria is seen trying to stop Arzon from destroying the bomb. As it turns out Arzon's attack does no damage to the bomb and was pointless. Wheeljack informs Galadria that they need to move the bomb closer to the Talisman for it to work. Galadria says she will take care of the Darkling Lords whilst the Transformers attend to the bomb.
