So you know how that one episode of the Ruby-Spears Mega Man cartoon that was about Vile and Spark Mandrill going back in time to... do evil things? I don't actually remember the episode all to well, just that Spark Mandrill sounded like Zangeif for some reason (no I don't have clip). Anyway, Archie's gonna do something like that now.
Hot off the heels of last year's Sonic/Mega Man crossover "Worlds Collide" (which was actually a full tilt reboot for Sonic, if your curious), Archie Comics has announced via the above teaser image that Mega Man and Mega Man X will indeed meet this spring (meaning April or May). Because if there's one thing comics are good at, it's childhood wish fulfillment crossovers, even if it means the property has to crossover with itself.
If you couldn't tell, I remain skeptical of this crossover, partially because I always thought X's (the character) story and character was always kinda "Meh," but also because X's story hasn't even begun yet (Hell, this poster is the official reveal of Archie's design for Sigma, but not Dr. Cain). Plus, the story of Mega Man Classic has yet to reach the time travel shenanigans of Wily Wars and II (the Game Boy game), outside of the telling--continuty-to-go-screw-itself Issue 20, which means we'll most likely have one of "those" again.
Still, getting the chance to see Protoman beat the ever loving piss out of Chill Penguin sounds entertaining enough in my book.
What do the rest of you think?
