The Mega Man X series is long overdue for a fresh animated adaptation. Until then, artist Nikodem Bredlich is here to remind us how perfectly suited the esteemed series is for film or TV.
Created by Bredlich, "Mega Man X: Mavericks" is a series of shorts that strives to answer a fun question: What if all eight Mavericks from X1 survived?
Bredlich published two episodes so far: Launch Octopus and Storm Eagle. He hopes to create 2-3 minute shorts for each Maverick. The final two episodes will reportedly bring all eight together. A final, 8-against-1 showdown with X, maybe? Oooh!
Needless to say, it's an interesting concept. I'm genuinely excited to see how it'll all play out. The Storm Eagle episode took four months to render alone, so don't expect to see additional entries so soon. "Mavericks" is a marathon, not a race.
