How would you react if you woke up as a half-naked woman in an alley just as two guys are about to assault you? And when you suddenly find yourself beating them down with almost no effort, what then? Well, that’s exactly how Angel Falling starts off. Not knowing who she is or why she’s there, she begins to search for answers alongside a new-found companion who is more than he seems, too.
Calling himself 5, the young man calls her by the name Angel but refuses to speak more on the subject. Or any subject for that matter, he is extremely tight-lipped about everything. What he does show her, however, is that he has perfect reactions and is exceptionally skilled at hand-to-hand combat. We learn that he has eidetic kinesthesia, also known as perfect physical memory. This allows him to mimic and retain every physical action he sees. His statement of “failure means death” is repeated often throughout the comic.

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #19 is an amazing continuation of the series. It brings so much more to the storyline.
In this issue, we are treated to Minimus Ambus trying to explain who he is and was. It takes the reader, with Rodimus playing proxy, through how Ambus was Ultra-Magnus, what is the Ultra-Magnus, and how he got there with him in the cell.
This story by James Roberts is truly amazing, and I would definitely recommend it. That said, you will need to have read the previous issues, because the plot is a bit complicated. At points, it can be difficult to figure out what’s going on if you hadn’t read at least a few issues earlier.
