As two heroes who live to fight robots built by bald, mustachioed mad scientists, Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man are hardly an odd couple in their respective battles for the fate of their worlds. Sure, they've had some differences in their current "When Worlds Collide" Archie Comics crossover spanning the ongoing Sonic and Mega Man titles, but they've been able to work as a solid team so far. Unfortunately, so have their foes. In this week's Mega Man #26 by Ian Flynn, Tracy Yardley!, Terry Austin, Jack Morelli, Thomas Mason and cover artist Patrick "SPAZ" Spaziante, the blue duo comes face to face with not one, but two Shadow Men to fight. It's just what happens when roboticizers are running wild and Shadow the Hedgehog winds up getting sucked into the fray.
