Okay...Worlds Collide is canon? Like, canon-canon? I mean, why else would it be shown there when Xander traveled through time?

If he's against robots, I wonder if he's against giant talking animals as well?

Ok guys, what the heck is that panel between Mega Man II GB and that scene from Rock of Ages? Who knows Wily "longer than you can imagine..."

I'm inclined to believe its a Archie Unique storyline coming up, and if that's true I'm excited.

But if it is something from a game, does anyone know what it is?

EDIT: Worlds collide confirmed for future! My timeline is vindicated!

It might have been Terra. If not it'd pretty much have to be some sort of original concept, nothing else game wise would really fit without going so obscure there would probably be licensing issues or involving time travel from a later series.

There are two possibilities I can see

1.) It's a game adaptation, but Archie can't use whatever character is talking yet and Ian is working around it, like he did with Rockman Shadow (making him ambiguously Quint)

2.) It's something entirely new and he's building up the hype for it.

So if the book lasts long enough to reach the crossover's events, does that mean that
Spoiler: show
Megaman and will get a scene where he suddenly remembers the crossover?

I spent thirty minutes yesterday looking for my copy, only to realize now that it hasn't arrived yet.

Got the issue today but my brother doesn't have part 1 yet he's going to email about it later. Anyway I enjoyed it either way I've dipped my toes into Mega Man X but like the main series I suck horribly at it so I've never gotten too far into them but I still really liked the characters. They all read very real.

I loved the hints at Mega Man 3 and whatever it is that's after Mega Man II And I have to mention it obviousl I'm not entirely sure WWC is canon. When Xander got to 10's place in the Timeline he saw the events of Mega Man #20 where Rock and Bass were jumping through time and blowing up the Anomaly so I think he might have fallen into the Post-Genesis Wave Universe. I could ber wrong but that's how I read it.

Jamal Peppers arc is amazing as always I love his Sonic work but he always seems to bring his A-Game on Mega Man and everything just flowed beautifully.

A 4 out of 5.

It felt more like a second buildup issue for me which is rare for the four-part arcs to this point. Not complaining on that front, but I'm ready to see some major league fighting in the next issue as both groups of robots take on the Wily Walker. Have to say I am curious as to how Xander will factor into all of this as well.

Oh, and I really liked the Short Circuits scene. That was out of the blue (and into the red).

Why wouldn't it be? :? Sonic's world was drastically changed because of the crossover, while Rock successfully undid the damage to his world which is why there is less of a impact.

Plus, even if it isn't canon-canon, then someone can just easily say Xander only saw it because of the time anomaly showing him an aborted timeline.

The Short Circuits panel was so cute!
*ahem*

This issue was pretty good, I found Peppers artwork to be improving since Worlds Collide. The dialogue between Vile and Zero was a highlight for me. It's good to see Xander looking through future and alternate future events, seeing alternate futures such as Rock of Ages and Worlds Collide was a surprise for me.

I really really hope we a X series in the future. There is so much potential that can be used from looking at these Pre-MMX events.
