Week four of Worlds Unite rolls on, and this week has another one-two punch of action.
The main course, of course (of course) is Mega Man #50, which provides the fourth and final part of the first chapter of Worlds Unite. Unlike last week, however, it's not Worlds Collide reheated that sits as the secondary material; rather, it's Mega Man: Worlds Unite Battles #1, which features three expanded stories of fights which took place either off-panel or in abridged form during the main story.
Read on for the previews and solicitations from the publisher, and then check back later for Mighty No. X's reviews!
