Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

This week we're taking a look at Mega Man, the ongoing series from Archie Comics based on the best-selling video game series. Find out which popular comics series inspired the creation of the game, which supporting character was too racist even for America, and the bizarre history of Brazil's ideas about Mega Man, as well as several other equally interesting facts.

Show notes:

  • The first volume of the current Mega Man series is here for the low price of $1120.64, or digitally here for $11.99, so now is a good time to decide how dedicated you are to the medium of print, I guess.
  • The first Mega Man/Sonic crossover is collected in print here, or digitally here, though note that the digital version is spread out over three digital volumes.
  • The current crossover, Worlds Unite, starts here and then goes here then here then here. You can figure out the pattern from there.
  • You can read Luke Brown's recaps of the current Mega Man/Sonic the Hedgehog crossover here.
