Summary[ edit ] Campbell explores the theory that mythological narratives frequently share a fundamental structure. The similarities of these myths brought Campbell to write his book in which he details the structure of the monomyth. In a well-known quote from the introduction to The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Campbell summarizes the monomyth: A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder:
Layered, iridescent cubes alternated their screentime with non-layered ones before being supplanted entirely by purple ones.
When it was originally introduced in the first episode of the Generation 1 cartoon seriesenergon was a liquid fuel used by the Decepticons and stored in cubeswhich was created by processing virtually any available energy resource; in the opening mini-series alone, oilhydro-electric powerruby crystals and rocket fuel were all converted into energon, and many more types of energy would be used by the villains throughout the show's run.
The cubes themselves began a visual evolution almost immediately: Immediately following the mini-series, however, in " Transport to Oblivion ", the stacking-and-compressing idea was omitted, and the cubes were instead colored a glowing purple-pink.
This was the only time the cubes were depicted this way in season one; otherwise, they remained rainbow-hued, and alternated between layered and non-layered, for the remainder of the season and the early portion of season two, until the purple-pink cubes reappeared in " Atlantis, Arise!
It was very rarely overtly stated, but at this point in time, energon was treated as an exclusively-Decepticon energy; Hound had never heard of it in the pilot episode, while " Attack of the Autobots " presented the Autobots as using recharging chambers to re-energize, and " Traitor " involved Ratchet puzzling over where Mirage would have acquired energon from.
This standard began to slip towards the end of the second season, presumably by accident rather than a deliberate change in policy— Seaspray spoke of having an " energon pump " in his body in " Sea Change ", while " Masquerade " had the Autobots using energon bars to hold the captive Stunticonsand frustratingly, " War Dawn " depicted energon in use on Cybertron millions of years beforehand.
The divide was eventually broken in a more conscious way by The Transformers: The Moviewhich had the Autobots using energon cubes and goodies. The movie's Contemporary heros quest script justified this change by explaining that Autobot City had been built to harness renewable, natural energy sources, thus supplying the Autobots with energon.
The Autobots continued to use energon throughout the third season, and far beyond, with the idea of it being of Decepticon purview alone never revisited in any subsequent fiction. The raw form of natural energon has taken several different forms in different continuities, including crystals and ore.
The Generation 1 comic treated energon much like the cartoon did, depicting it as cubes produced by the processing of other energy sources, albeit freely used by both Autobots and Decepticons. The first piece of fiction to re-examine energon was, surprisingly, the short-lived and comparatively obscure comic Transformers in 3-D by Blackthorne Publishing.
The first issue of the series, " The Test ", was the first story to explicitly present energon as something other than an artificially-generated fuel, establishing that it also existed as a unique natural element. Through pleasant coincidence, the idea of natural energon returned and gained widespread acknowledgement in the Beast Wars cartoon inwhere it was depicted as a highly unstable, naturally-occurring crystalline mineral that emitted dangerous radiation.
InDreamwave Productions directly incorporated the Beast Wars depiction of energon into its continuity, reconciling it with the liquid energon of Generation 1 by explaining that the liquid could be created by processing either the crystals, or, as seen in the cartoon, other natural resources.
Later still, IDW Publishing 's continuity would specifically refer to energon created from sources other than natural energon as "artificial". The series to truly redefine energon was, fittingly enough, the Energon franchise.
Taking its cue from Beast Wars, the energon of Energon also existed naturally and was dangerous to Transformers before being processed into a usable form. Beyond these facts, however, it was scarcely recognizable as any of the substances seen in previous fiction, possessed as it was of several strange, unusual, and indeed, nigh-on magical powers, including the ability to cause full-body reconfiguration.
Perhaps this was not so surprising, however, as Energon was the first series to depict the fuel as the creation of the nigh-magical Primus, who appeared in this series as a glowing orb of energon itself, and who had produced energon as part of a grand destiny for the Cybertronian race.
The live-action movie universe revisited the importance Energon had placed upon the titular fuel, establishing it as the source of Transformer life itself.
It wasn't name-checked in the first film itself, but rather in the video game adaptation of the movie, where it was revealed to be the energy emitted by the life-giving AllSpark ; unsurprising, given that the AllSpark was originally to be called the "Energon Cube". Soon after, inthe Henkei!
And while all this was going on, the ongoing comic book story published in the Hasbro Transformers Collectors Club magazine introduced Rarified Energonrevealing that it was not merely a fuel, but actually the base substance from which Transformers were created at the molecular level.
The fuel being a product of Primus and the base material of Transformer life were key points in the novel, Exodus. With this knowledge, it might be safely theorized that the life-giving energy of the Matrix of Leadership is also a form of energon; something that had actually been claimed by the anomalous-at-the-time Transformers Trilogy novels.
Prime gave further varieties of energon including a highly toxic form and a speed inducing form. The Aligned continuity family as a whole also introduced and capitalized on dark energonthe blood of Unicron and counter to the substance associated with Primus.
And that's where we are on understanding energon right now.
The natural version of it comes from Primus himself, usually just on Cybertron but sometimes on other planets, while the liquid cubes we've been seeing since are an artificial substitute.
Now, for specifics on energon in all of this various fiction, read on. Fiction Generation 1 continuity family Generation 1 cartoon continuity The Transformers cartoon Soundwave tests out a 'tapedeck enhancement' pill.
The history of energon in this universe is confusing at best. It appears to have been in use on Cybertron in the distant past: War Dawn These accounts, then, seem to stand in complete contradiction to the Autobots subsequent apparent ignorance and disuse of the fuel during their early years on Earth and the Decepticons' monopolization of it—but this would not be only time that Transformers were shown to have poor memories of their personal histories.Unformatted text preview: Contemporary Hero’s Quest STAR WARS Edgar Huezo HUM/ June 15, Cristopher Price Heroes Struggle Luke Must learn the ways of the Jedi Fight and defeat Lord Vader and his master Leia Bring freedom to the republic and the rest of the iridis-photo-restoration.com and Chewy Break away from fighting for themselves.

In narratology and comparative mythology, the monomyth, or the hero's journey, is the common template of a broad category of tales that involve a hero who goes on an adventure, and in a decisive crisis wins a victory, and then comes home changed or transformed..
The study of hero myth narratives started in with anthropologist Edward Burnett Tylor's observations of common patterns in plots. The name or term "Energon" refers to more than one character or idea.

When we talk about the manga we often compare them to the comics.
