Huh. Have to say I'm a bit confused by this, because that page in #20 seemed to be a very clear reference to the game.

The green robot on that page was never said to be Rockman Shadow. Or named, for that matter.

In my opinion R-Shadow was drawn in a way that he can ambiguously looks like Quint. So if any trouble arises, it can just be said that he is Quint again and let it be.

No, he was never stated to be R-Shadow, but there's much more to that scene than the presence of maybe-Quint/maybe-Shadow.

Mega Man was skipping through time in order of the games. This scene came after MM&B, and Bass was tagging along with him. Also, they see him standing atop a skyscraper, staring down at them, not unlike the intro to R&FWS...

Also, Quint and R-Shadow have identical designs, so there's no way to NOT draw R-Shadow to look like Quint...

Again, they can just have a story happen after MM and Bass where Quint, now looking a bit different, enacts his revenge. The placement et all indicate it's a nod to a game we fans know, but events occur differently in comic
