Legendary unused Mega Man boss is news to me

When Cowzilla posted those mind blowing Mega Man wallpapers last weekend, I double-freaked out. The first freak out was over the quality of the artwork. The second freak out was over the fact that I didn't recognize every character. I love Mega Man a lot more than most 33-year-olds, but I still didn't know about all of these cute little bastards.

With a little research (and help from MegaStryke), I got them all; except for one. That weird yellow dude in the corner. Who was he? There wasn't even a mention of him Udon's highly extensive Mega Man Official Complete Works (a book that features such obscure Mega Man designs as the cigarette wielding Smoke Man and the elephant-headed, sunglasses loving Elephant Borg Man).

Turns out, this new mystery man was yet another unused boss design, one that Capcom doesn't often talk about. His name is Bond Man, and he's all about glue. He's only been "officially" depicted once, in a Mega Man manga from 1995, but apparently, he's got quite the following in Japan. There's even reason to hope that he may show up in Mega Man Universe. The Mega Man Network has an extensive write up on the situation. It's required reading for any Mega Man fan.

Review: Resident Evil HD Remaster
