On the body count...
That scene is pretty disturbing, but consider this: if the bacterium passed
through the city in order to get to the lab, think of the body count.
I think the highest total must be in Mutation City, which should have
de-populated the city. Unless everyone was away on holiday, the bottom
floors of all the buildings were flooded, and yet we don't see any kats on

why not build another one from scratch?! :)
It often takes longer to fix something than to make a new one. In the case
of Cybertron, we want his experience, personality, and heroism, so he's
