I'm excited to see backup stories of Mega Man X within the Mega Man comic. Especially if they take place prior to the events of the first Mega Man X game. I always felt that time period had the best story potential in terms of what Capcom could show us. Sadly the glimpse we saw from Maverick Hunter X was underwhelming. Hopefully if the comic takes cues from that game, it's revised enough to allow certain events to fit and flow better.

That said. While excited for the backups. Not excited enough to actually support a full on X comic. If Archie can do the series justice and fans like it, more power to them. But Capcom already killed my love for the series long ago. And I don't see Ian pulling off enough miracles within the comic to keep me staying.

I like the X series most as it relates to the Classic series, but its existence and the series that follow kinda put the entire classic series in a negative light :( because of wily, TONS of wars happened, Zero surpassed X, and when they finally stopped humanity was extinct. it's like... if Wily had WON, unless you're talking the Protomen, none of that would have happened.

Why never? I think they will someday.

Legal issues and red tape from the manga and anime prevent that for now.

It's cool. I hope Ian won't pick up on any of the Mega Man topics, like overpowering thing, i really hope he will distinguish these two titles as much as possible.

Anyway, I'd love to see some non-game development. The games were sadly lacking in really showing us the world as anything more than a battleground all but completely devoid of the very humans you were fighting to protect.

To that end, I'm hoping we see the Emerald Spears appear in this era.

I'd like to see more into X psychology inot what lead him to become a Maverk Hunter. I mean basically he's first repeloid. The prince of his people. He could have done nothing and be pretty much set for life.

My head cannon
Spoiler: show
Zero was the reason X joined the Maverk Hunters. When Zero was found he was brought to Dr. Cain. X living with Dr. Cain sees Zero and his awed by meeting another Robot/Reploid that like him. Sigma recruits Zero to the Maverk Hunters. X fallows Zero's foots steps and join the Maverk Hunters.

Well, I would imagine that they'd use MHX where they can at least explain the elements that contradict the later games. I know it's implied that Dr. Cain was killed in that one, but it was never outright shown. I think explaining how he survived would make at least a decent small part of an original story.

An old man on life support being shown caught in the blast radius of a missile attack doesn't countradict the much healthier Dr. Cain from 2 and 3?
