Cover and Solicitation for Archie’s Mega Man #14

It's that time again! The new solicitation and cover for Archie’s Mega Man #14 is now available, and it looks like this issue's going to be a doozy. Better hold onto you hats for this one:

‘Spiritus ex Machina,’ Part Two. It’s pandemonium as the Emerald Spears extremist group has taken everyone at the A.R.T.S. hostage! It’s up to Mega Man and Rush to lead Elec Man, Pharaoh Man and Quake Woman to save the day! Meanwhile, Dr. Wily attempts to awaken the power of the mysterious Ra Moon.” (W) Ian Flynn (A) Gary Martin & Various (CA) Patrick Spaz Spaziante

Yes, you read that right: Quake Woman.

Archie's officially entered original Robot Master territory. No images of this mysterious character exist at the moment, but I like to imagine she'll pop up in the inevitable batch of preview pages in the coming months.

    @abster I was just thinking that. I hope they sneak in some reference to the horrendous lionmen episode.

    As for QuakeWoman? I'm not entirley sure on this. Archie originally said that the MM universe was so big that they didn't have use for OC's. But with The faemale professor last issue and Now QuakeWoman, I fear we're heading into Archie Sonic-esque teritory.

  8. Oh God, I really have a bad feeling about this. Archie skips Mega Man 3 completely for an original story and new characters... Please don't screw it up.

  9. @Abster:

    It is. It obviously is.

    On the other hand... Quake Woman?
    I can think of only one reason for this. --> http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p48/ProfessorMegaman/MDPOI.png

  10. Every continuity should be allowed at make at least one new robot master. And, hey ... it's not like the Dreamwave releases where only Heatman was featured in the story, right?

    And ... Superadventure without the MM3 guys? Awwwwwwwwwww ... Well, even if they were in there it'd likely be too much for these 4 issue story arcs. Already, even 8 robots seems like too much.

  12. (@UG_Bubbleman) Ugh, why do people keep thinking that they're skipping MM3? They're not. We've known since the beginning that the series is going to follow a "game adaptation, original arc, game adaptation, original arc, etc" template. Did you think that they skipped MM2 when they did the "Time Keeps Skipping" arc? They're just doing an original arc and setting up characters for the future. Have some patience.

  13. Protodude that's not how preview pages work. They won't come out until a few weeks before the comics release which is to say the middle of JUNE. We'll get the preview pages for Issue 11 in March next for instance.

    These solicitations are done four months out in advance the preview pages are not.

  16. Surprise at Quake Woman? Light's new love interest Dr. Lalinde is a roboticist, so she must have built a robot. Duh, people.
