The Dawn of X Continues in MEGA MAN #38
Meanwhile, Xander Payne of the present-day Emerald Spear anti-robot terrorist group finds himself knocked across the timestream. He had originally intended to travel backwards in time and destroy all robots before they were ever invented. However, something happens in this story that manages to toss him forward in time to the era of Mega Man X!
Can I be even more confusing with this blog summary??
Needless to say, one robot has managed to crossover with both Mega Man and Mega Man X. I am assuming that our two main robots will eventually meet, but Wily Walker really seems to be the star of this show!
Of course, Mega Man's present-day battle continues to be secretly sabotaged by the not-so-rehabilitated Dr. Wily. He keeps guiding Mega Man through his secret lab in an effort to local a group of evil Robot Masters. Meanwhile, he keeps leading Mega Man into one trap after another and then getting away with it with a simple "Sorry!" You would think that Mega Man and Dr. Light would be more clued in, but not yet.
