Mega Man: Fully Charged comic book limited series Capcom Boom! Studios Boom Studios

Mega Man: Fully Charged, which aired on the Cartoon Network in the United States, did not set the world on fire when it launched in 2018. It received 52 episodes that sometimes aired irregularly, and there does not seem to be official word on if the show will ever continue. However, it is randomly receiving a six-issue limited series comic book from Boom! Studios to launch in August. (Note that a different publisher, Archie Comics, published the previous Mega Man comic.) The creative team consists of A.J. Marchisello, Marcus Rinehart, and Stefano Simeone, and the comic was developed in collaboration with Dentsu Entertainment USA.

Here is a plot synopsis to the Mega Man: Fully Charged comic as provided by io9:

The Fully Charged comic will see Mega Man (known as Aki outside of his suited-up form in the show) creator Dr. Light captured by the forces of his arch rival, Dr. Wily, leading to uncovered revelations about both Mega Man’s real past and the human/robot war he was built for. But those revelations leave Aki full of questions—not just if he’ll be able to rescue his father figure from the clutches of Dr. Wily, but if he’ll ever be able to trust him about the truths of his past ever again.

As Rockman Corner notes, Dr. Wily never actually appeared in the cartoon, making his appearance in the Mega Man: Fully Charged comic a bigger deal.

I lived outside the United States when the cartoon began and missed out on ever watching it, so I can’t speak to its quality. All I can say is that I hope this new comic does well and inspires Capcom to pursue more multimedia adaptations.
