‘Mega Man’ #36 Explains Dr. Wily’s Wild Video Game Comeback [Preview]

Mega Man #36, Archie Comics

If you are of a certain age, you may recall the feeling of being really excited for Mega Man 3, while also being very, very confused about the game's plot. Not the thing with the eight killer robots and their weapons that you needed to get, we were all used to that by that point, but definitely the thing about how Dr. Wily had "reformed" and everyone was just totally cool with him building a gigantic "peacekeeping" robot with lasers and ninja stars. I mean, if you try to destroy the world twice and somehow still regain the trust of the people, that must have been a heck of a trial to prove your innocence.

And now, we get to see exactly how that goes down. In Mega Man #36, Ian Flynn, POWREE, Gary Martin, John Workman and Matt Herms finally reveal the story of how Dr. Wily was cleared of all charges, including two counts of Attempted Murder Of Literally Everyone. Check out a preview below!

Mega Man: Dawn of X Promo Art

Here at ComicsAlliance, we're big fans of Archie's Mega Man series, but ever since the series started, we've been wondering when -- not if, but when -- they were going to get around to introducing Mega Man's far future counterpart, Mega Man X. It's been hinted at in the series, both in the main storyline and in backup stories, but now, we know for sure that the two video game heroes of different eras are going to meet.

In this summer's Mega Man #37, the two robot-fightin' robots are going to team up in "Dawn of X," a four-part crossover where 8-bit and 16-bit collide, courtesy of Ian Flynn, Jamal Peppers, Gary Martin, John Workman and Matt Herms. Check out some early art from the story below!

Why ‘Mega Man’ Is the Smartest Super-Hero Comic On the Stands

megaman01

As strange as it might sound, one of the best super-hero comics on the stands today isn't put out by Marvel, DC, or any of the other usual suspects. In fact, it doesn't even star a character that originated in comics. It's
