Mega Man #40
Archie (October, 2014)“Dawn Of X” part 4: “Inheritance” WRITER: Ian Flynn PENCILER: Jamal Peppers BREAKDOWNS: Ryan Jampole INKER: Gary Martin COLORIST: Matt Herms LETTERER: John Workman SELECTED COVER ART: Colin Lawler ASSISTANT EDITOR: Vincent Lovallo EDITOR: Paul Kaminski
In both 20XX and 21XX the Walker is stopped, but hints of future enemies appear. This includes Payne returning to 20XX, nuttier than ever!
What they got right: This was a good parallel story arc, and if they do a Mega Man X series or miniseries this is a good setup to another game adaptation.
What they got wrong: Did we need an origin for why Zero uses a laser blade?
Recommendation: A good storyline that’s worth a read.
