Galvatron is a fictional character from the Transformers series. He is a heroic mirror image of Galvatron from the Generation 1.

Shattered Glass

After nearly being killed in an assassination attempt Megatron was rebuilt by Nexus Prime into Galvatron.

Fictional biography

After his brush with death and subsequent rebirth, Galvatron became an even wiser and more compassionate leader of the heroic Decepticons. He uses his new powers and alternate form to manage his battles against Prime's forces on both Cybertron and Earth. His chemical laser cannons have a range of two miles and his hook-and-grapple is supported by a nigh unbreakable destronium tether. It has been a full solar cycle since Nexus Prime and Aquarius left Cybertron for parts unknown, and the Stellar Spanner built by Alpha Trion subsequently destroyed. However, some strange energy readings coming from inside Iacon seems to indicate the technology may be in use once again...

Development

In initial concepts for Shattered Glass Galvatron he was colored blue inspired by Dai Atlas, but the final release was purple.[1]

Comics

In Reunification, Megatron greets a Quintesson and the dimensional travelers Breakaway, Topspin Skyfall and Landquake after their escape from the Autobot combiner Computron. Megatron introduces the travelers to Heatwave, but then is shot by the traitor Cyclonus, who is working for Alpha Trion. The travelers try to combine their powers with Heatwave to return Megatron to life, but instead have a vision of Skyfall and are combined into Nexus Prime. Nexus Prime resurrect Megatron as Galvatron.
