There was another... who came before you... he was a hero and your brother and my son...
He fought the darkness... the darkness won...
This September, Archie will publish Mega Man #17, kicking off a new arc that officially introduces the Red Bomber himself, Blues a.k.a. Proto Man. I'm excited, you're excited, Ian Flynn is excited, I'm making bean dip and throwing a kegger. It's about to go down, son!
The story will detail Proto's creation and his reasons for parting ways with Dr. Light. Below, we've got a pair of teaser sketches from the upcoming issue that show off an early armor for the silent renegade. Before he got himself that Racer X helmet and those killer shades, his design was closer in style to that of a Sniper Joe, basically a mass-produced Proto Man.
Proto Man, guys. I'm geeking out over here.
