Badass of the Week.

-- Optimus Prime and the Baroness --

Greetings! I just found out about your BotW site and I love it!

One thing with your BotW for October 13, 2006 you had the Baroness and a pic of her in the hand of Optimus Prime with a Cobra emblem and your first line was "I'm not even sure what's going on in this picture," Being the 80's geek I am, allow me to clarify:

The pic comes from the G.I. Joe vs the Transformers mini series of comic books which was released in an Omnibus in 2006. Originally in the transformers when the Ark crashed on Earth, the transformers woke by themselves. In the GvT series, Cobra found the Ark and controlled all the transformers inside, Autobot and Decepticon alike. That pic was when cobra made their first appearance to the military. In this storyline, G.I. Joe was assembled to fight not just Cobra, but the transformers as well.

Hope that clarifies things for you.
