Mega Man #40

Another problem with variant covers is if you’re late you get the lame cover.

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.

Foresight means wondering which one I'm supposed to be rooting for.
