A creative, brilliant, charismatic young leader, rising up to save his fellow people from the domination of an opposing government which conquered the planet through civil war. Megatron from Transformers. This is played straight in the continuity "Shattered Glass" ("SG") where the Decepticons were good and the Autobots evil. Megatron in "SG" (according to the "tfwiki.net" site had been a mathematician who found civil war was brewing. When the evil Optimus Prime and his Autobots conquered Cybertron, Megatron led his "Decepticons" as the leader of La Resistance. In a way, this Whitewashing the Villain would form the base for the mirror-verse version.
