MM#042 - Spoilers & Discussion

Postby Ian Flynn » Tue Oct 28, 2014 1:23 pm

We're 2/8ths of the way through the Mega Man 3 adaptation! We've also got the scene I've been dying to get to since we introduced Shadow Man. I'm rather excited to get the chance to tie together all the space elements!

I was rather intrested in ShadowMans unique back story, I hope he gets his own arc about his past.

And I'm glad you did. ^^

Question: Is Quartet the robot that'll become Duo (after his buddies put him back together, if possible), or did Duo not change his name and this is just an unfortunate red shirt?

So looking at the preview pages Kuiper droids? Ian Do any of then have these names?

Spoiler: show
I'm betting Shadow Man's real name is Nix


Also since we are bring the Kuiper belt into this? Does this mean Pluto is one of them? Yeah I probably shouldn't take the Kuiper Droids name literally But with the stuff about Pluto not longer being a planet I have to ask in a half joking and half serious kind of way.

No, Duo is Duo. Quartet is dead.

Nah. I named them after that region of space because, like most of the icy bodies out there, they're small and unremarkable. The Kupier Droids are the fodder. Shadow Man just happened to get a much more fulfilling life.

It's nice to see the cast around the Stardroids expanded, I'd like to see other dwarf planets other then Pluto explored. Like Ceres and Eris are names that sound like it would be fun to seen turned into robots. Maybe even some moon based bots?

Man, I wish Archie would bring Mini-Series's back because I would read the heck out of a Stardroid Mini-Series focused on their war.

The rest of the issue was cool and I love Gemini Man talk's to himselves. :(hearty laughter):

Shame the name wasn't Quatre, so we could have Megadam Wings.

Hope the evil energy robot has no direct connection with Ra Moon/Stardroids. While I can appreciate some gaps getting filled and having a mythos established in a style that bridges some of space stuff together to make a unique twist on the characters. I don't want to find out everything falls under a single category.

Really like the Shadow Man origin however.

If I remember right, Shadow Man was originally depicted here in his full Robot Master form, and that wasn't the intention, correct?

If that's the case, then I'm curious if the form seen here is what he was supposed to look like, or if it was adapted or even changed outright to more closely match what we saw in his first appearance.

This was a really fun issue. I like how things were tied together pretty nicely with Shadow Man's backstory, and Gemini Man's pep talk with himself gave me a laugh.

What we need is a Mega Man book like Sonic Universe, But I'm sure Archie is doing X first. From there if did do a Mega Man Universe comic (Sonic has three now so it's possible) it could focus on side characters and stories between Classic and X, Maybe do some adaption of the Zero, Legends and ZX. Actually they could split the pages like they did with intruding X, use the last five or even ten pages to tell a different story like maybe and on going adaption of one of the games. Five or ten pages of a Mega Man Legends comic every month is better then none.

Doesn't seem like Mega Man is quite selling well enough to warrent a sister series. Maybe Worlds Unite will change that, but Collide didn't seem to make a lasting impact.

I think Mega Man X is probably the next series if another Mega Man comic were to happen. I guess Archie was testing the waters with Dawn of X. I hope it did well enough to warrant a Mega Man X book, if anything because I know it's in good hands, but I absolutely do want to see Mega Man keep growing strong!

Can it be assumed that Wily hid his prepaid skull-phone in the toilet cistern, ala Walter White? The more I think about it the more they have in common.

Also I'm pleased that Trio gets to have an actual name, finally. MM8 came out in '96 for crying out loud.

I've seen the numbers; it got a tiny boost on the first issue of Dawn but then went back down. Considering it was advertised as "Mega Man meets X!" I'm not surprised.
