Liege Maximo is the patriarch of the Decepticons, ruler of the Cybertronian Empire and the main antagonist of the comic book series, Transformers: Generation 2 and major villain for the rest of the transformers franchise.

He sits in the Hub, a network of planetoids located in the fringes of Outer Space.


Liege Maximo was the original creator of the Decepticons, and the direct ancestor of Megatron. At some point after their creation, the Second Generation Transfomers entered into service for him.

When the battle between the Autobot-Decepticon Alliance and the Cybertronian Empire started spiraling out of control, Rook contacted the Liege Maximo to let him know what was happening.

After the remaining crew members aboard the Twilight retreated to the Hub, Rook reported to the Liege Maximo that they had lost seventeen battalions and that Jhiaxus was most likely dead. The Liege Maximo was not too concerned, stating that they were only a fraction of his army and that the "day of reckoning" would come.


in the unofficial novel Alignment, Liege Maximo was revealed to be one of the Thirteen original Primes, and had chosen to subdivide selectively, unlike the others, leading to a small taint in the gene pool, eventually created the Decepticons. Due to this selectivity, Maximo had a diluted connection to the divine, and planned to embrace it. Maximo instructed Jhiaxus and the Cybertronian Empire to subject various planets to eco-structuring. These planets were woven together to form the Hub, which would allow him to ascend to godhood. Two groups, one led by Grimlock and one by Ultra Magnus and Megatron, disrupted this process by forcing the Liege to leave his corporeal body, then destroying both it and his portal. Liege Maximo's essence dissipated, and he was destroyed.
