Sonic And Mega Man Clash With The Chaos Devil In The Most Metal Archie Cover Of All Time

This year’s most anticipated crossover — by fans of blue video game characters, at least — is unquestionably Archie’s Worlds Collide, in which Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog and Capcom’s Mega Man team up for the first time ever. We’ve been pretty excited about this story around here ever since it was announced, but with the reveal of Sonic Universe #53, they have given us an entirely new reason to get excited.

Not only does this issue feature a battle against The Chaos Devil, which is the most metal thing Archie has published since that one issue of Josie and the Pussycats where Josie got possessed by Satan, but the official solicitation includes the line “The tension is fraying the bromance of Drs. Eggman and Wily!” If that isn’t something you want to read about, then I think we’re done here.From the looks of things, the Chaos Devil appears to be a combination of Mega Man’s perennial foe, the Yellow Devil, that big dude with one eye who flies across the room in pieces, and… well, despite the fact that I’m on the Internet, I’m a little rusty on my Sonic lore. Chaos Emeralds, maybe? That sounds about right. Chaos Emeralds. Either way, the story also gets fan-favorite robot warrior/scarf model Proto Man involved, so yeah, it’s pretty exciting stuff.

Here’s the official solicitation:
