- Author Bio
Mega Man is the legendary Blue Bomber—the boy robot turned hero! One of videogame’s first icons, he’s now one of comic books’ greatest heroes!
It all began when the nefarious Dr. Wily stole Dr. Light’s eight Robot Masters and turned them against the world! Helper-bot Rock had himself turned into Mega Man—the super fighting robot—to save the day!
Dr. Wily wouldn’t go down without a fight, though, and built eight combat-specific Robot Masters just to destroy Mega Man—from without or within! No prison could hold him, and no scheme was beneath him—as evident when he kidnapped Mega Man’s sister, Roll!
MEGA MAN: MASTER EDITION collects the first three epic storylines, covering MEGA MAN #1-12.
