Around this point in the comic, I was kind of toying with the idea that Mega Man was never actually stupid; he was just acting like it. I mean, what better way to trick your enemies into underestimating you than to act like an idiot? The only problem with that idea is that so much of the comic's humor was tied up in Mega Man's stupidity; I felt it might cheat the readers out of something if it turned out that Mega Man had been smart the whole time. I didn't think readers would be able to properly enjoy the previous storylines if they kept thinking the whole time that Mega Man was just pretending to be stupid.

For those Harry Potter fans out there, I liken it a bit to the fourth book. I'm pretty sure everyone reading this has already read that or seen the movie, so I hope I'm not spoiling anything, but I find it somewhat difficult to read the book again because once you find out a certain character is actually evil, it essentially negates every good moment between that character and Harry throughout the whole book. It's disheartening. I mean, if you really liked a character and then find out he's been lying about everything from the very beginning, it kinda ruins the whole thing, doesn't it? Or maybe it's just me.

All that being said, I pretty much did exactly that with the "Evil Mega Man" storyline, didn't I?
