Dr. Wily and Eggman Are BFFs in Mega Man #25


By way of Mega Man Monthly, here's the bromance infused cover for the second part of the Worlds Collide story arc. Dr. Wily and Eggman, riding a bike for two, are making a toast to the incapacitated Mega Man and Sonic. This is quite a change of pace from the usual action-oriented cover splash. Nevertheless, I like it. It's different... and funny!

Anyway, AOL Comics Alliance also brings us an official synopsis for the issue:

“When Worlds Collide” Part Four of Twelve: It’s Sonic versus Mega Man – Round Two! Celebrate 25 issues of Mega Man with the throwdown brawl to end all throwdown brawls! The Blue Bomber has the home field advantage this time – can Sonic keep up in this unfamiliar city? Meanwhile, Drs. Eggman and Wily make their boldest move yet in their master plan! This milestone issue marks the dramatic conclusion to the first act in the biggest crossover story of 2013! Featuring a stunning gatefold cover by Sonic/Mega Man art legend Patrick Spaziante, and a special “E.F.F. (aka Evil Friends Forever) variant” featuring Drs. Eggman and Wily on a (presumably evil) bicycle built for two!

Mega Man #25 is due in comic shops on May 8, 2013. Many thanks to Mega Man Monthly for the tip!

  8. @Anon3: You mean the same way he explodes when he's hit by those hedgehog robots in Needle Man's stage? Not ALL spikes or spiky objects are instant kills for Mega Man.

    Give him time, I'm sure he'll run out of energy eventually.

    Joking aside, this is a pretty amusing cover. I look forward to catching up with the comics until I can get to this one.

  11. Anon: Mega should blow up from Sonic's spikes.

    CPoC: Not all spikes explode Mega.

    StrikeSlash: Mega should get hurt from Sonic's spikes.

    I'm sure you can figure out what comes next.
