History

The mythological titan Cronus swallowed almost all of his children, including previously unknown gods named Titan, Oblivion, Disdain, Arch, Slaughter, and Harrier. He did this out of fear that his children would one day rise up against him and dethrone him. Centuries after Zeus successfully accomplished this feat, Cronus released the remaining children who did not escape his bowels. These unknown gods became his new pantheon, which he used to destroy various gods on his new ascension to power. One obstacle Cronus came to know was the champion of Olympus: Wonder Woman. In order to defeat the Amazon, Cronus devised a plan to create a dark mirror image of Wonder Woman whom he could call as a champion of his own.

Similar to Diana, Cronus formed the image of a child out of Themyscirian clay. He breathed life into it and called her Deva. He then had his dark children each bless the new creation with evil gifts. Thus Devastation possessed each of Wonder Woman's abilities, but with a dark twist to them.

During her initial battle with Wonder Woman, Deva discovered that Diana would be an extremely formiddable opponent as they seemed evenly matched. Instead Devastation decided to focus her attention on Diana's newest protege Cassie Sandsmark. Entering her mind, Deva convinced Cassie that Diana was actually Devastation. Diana watched in horror as her close friend attacked her repeatedly as Devastation watched happily from the sidelines. Eventually her illusion was revealed and Devastation was given information that proved to be a potentially brutal blow to her. Diana had used the time traveling powers of Themyscira to travel back to just before Deva's creation and placed several drops of her own blood on the clay that would be used to create Devastation. Thus Deva and Diana share the same genetic make-up which includes partial DNA. Diana explains to Deva that this means she has just as much chance to live her life positively as Diana has. That whatever choice Devastation makes in life is solely up to her. Devastation then left the battle repulsed by Diana's revelation.

Wishing further revenge against both Diana and Cassandra, Deva later gave some of her blood to Doctor Poison to create biological monsters to battle Diana [1] and also formed a temporary team of youthful villains to battle Cassie and her team of friends Young Justice.

The Devastation was a CIS Subjugator-class heavy cruiser and the sistership of the Malevolence.[6][2]

Contents

Characteristics

The vessel was quite different from the Malevolence, having a large cannon situated at the bow, with three protruding "claw"-like structures surrounding it. A hangar bay was located in what was otherwise an ion cannon projector on the other ship.[5]

History

The sister ship of the dreaded Malevolence and the second of their class to be built,[7] the vessel was involved in a conflict that concerned Dathomiri Nightsisters during the Clone Wars. It housed two gigantic Ion cannons powered by force crystals which were strong enough to destroy worlds. The vessel, before operational, hunted down the Republic vessel Sedawan and stormed the ship, plundering its cargo of lightsaber crystals.[5]

It's original first target was Dathomir, but the Nightsister Sai Sircu betrayed the Confederacy and charted a new course for Coruscant. However, the monstrous ship was destroyed by the combined efforts of a Jedi strike team including Mace Windu, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Plo Koon, Ahsoka Tano and Kit Fisto.[5]

They're actually both looking for characterization.
Let's see what you can see...

This article is in need of images.

Specifics: correct TPB cover


The Transformers: Devastation is a 6-issue comic-book mini-series published by IDW Publishing in 2007/2008, and set in the main IDW continuity. It directly follows The Transformers: Escalation, and ramps up the action even further for the Generation One Transformers. As the Autobots discover that the humans are aware of the location of their base, Megatron summons Sixshot to Earth to hasten its... well, devastation!

It is issues #17-22 in the IDW overarching "sub-numbering" (shown by a number in an Autobot-sigil shaped shield beside the bar code on each issue).

Devastation issues:
#1|#2|#3|#4|#5|#6

Overview

After discovering that their position has been compromised, the Autobots plan to move the Ark-19 to the Gulf of Mexico. Unfortunately they are intercepted by Sixshot, who has been ordered by Megatron to terminate the Autobots. Sixshot disables the Ark-19 and the Autobots are forced to make a crash landing into the closest shoreline, ejecting an escape pod containing Ratchet, Verity and Jimmy. The ship's data is sent to the Ark-32 before it self-destructs in the ocean. Sixshot is convinced that the Autobots are destroyed and tracks Ratchet to finish his task. After chasing him around a bit to the ocean's edge, he's about to deliver the final blow when the other Autobots emerge and give him battle. Nightbeat manages to bounce the Autobots back to the Ark-32 before they are destroyed by an air attack. Sixshot leaves to deal with trouble at Decepticon headquarters.

Meanwhile, the other Decepticons are upset that Megatron has ruined their efforts at infiltration by bringing in Sixshot, so Astrotrain and Blitzwing awaken Starscream, who is being repaired in a CR chamber after being blasted by Megatron in Infiltration. Starscream awakens as the Reapers attack and rejoins the Decepticon cause, though he still has his own agenda. When the Reapers try to recruit Sixshot as before, he refuses until his rival Starscream taunts him. As he moves to attack, Starscream utters Sixshot's shutdown code, causing him to crash.

Prior to the attack on the Ark-19, Hot Rod and Wheeljack embarked on a mission to rescue Ironhide, who was seriously injured in an explosion. Escalation issue 6 En route, they are forced to deal with a gang of Sunstreaker clones whom they discover are actually Headmasters, controlled by the Machination. At the Machination's headquarters, Hunter, a Headmaster himself, sneaks around and discovers the real Sunstreaker's detached head. Although initially wishing to die, Sunstreaker agrees to help Hunter fully become a Headmaster so he can help the Autobots. They complete the process just in time to avoid destruction by the Machination's leader Scorponok, now a Headmaster himself with the help of Mister Dante. Hunter/Sunstreaker escape the facility.

Two sinister external forces have their eyes on Earth. The Reapers have been observing since their encounter with Sixshot and determine that Earth must be destroyed. They start with Decepticon headquarters. Observing this from the Dead Universe is Nemesis Prime (the former Nova Prime) and Jhiaxus who have plans for Earth and send Galvatron to bring things under control. He does by making the lead Reaper destroy his brethren, thinning out the lot until the Decepticons get the edge to finish the job. The Battlechargers are casualties, and the Decepticons now have to deal with the human military.

Meanwhile, Skywatch has reprogrammed Ravage and Laserbeak with plans to use them to track down the other Transformers. Their efforts are hampered by Soundwave, who recently came back online. They plan to activate Grimlock instead.

Upon urging from Sideswipe, Optimus Prime agrees to let Hound's unit travel to Earth and assigns Jetfire to supervise the decommissioning of Bludgeon's base. Later however, an incident on Garrus-9 Spotlight: Arcee requires Prime's team to evacuate the Earth and also divert Hound's team to deal with the crisis.

Creative team

The creative team from Infiltration and Escalation (writer Simon Furman and penciller E. J. Su) reunited for the bulk of Devastation. However Su's paternity leave meant he was unable to pencil the entire arc. Nick Roche took over for issue 3, with Robby Musso working on issue 4. Su returned for issues 5 and 6.
