This was actually theory that I came up with as for why Metal Sonic betrayed Eggman. Basically, he had Metal Sonic copy his form (possibly to act as a decoy just like he did in Sonic Heroes) but Metal Sonic ended up copying his ambition to rule the world, as well as part of his technical skills as well. It also made sense to me that Dr. Wily could make the same mistake too.

Now, for those of you who don't know the Copy Robot, he originally appeared back in the original Mega Man game where Dr. Wily apparently scanned Mega Man, and created a clone of him. Dr. Wily used a similar fortress guardian in Mega Man 3, only this time it was actually 3 clones, only one of which could be hurt, while the other two were apparently holograms. However, since there were multiple player characters in Mega Man Powered Up, the Copy Robot would copy whatever character you were playing as. And since he was actually given dialog in that game, he would always taunt the player, usually acting as a darker version of the player character.

I should mention for those of you who are sticklers to detail that while the Copy Robot always looked exactly like the player character except with a blueish hue, there was another copy of Mega Man that took the place of whatever Robot Master you were playing as, if you chose to play a Robot Master. Technically that robot was a completely different robot from the Copy Robot, but I chose to use his design for the Copy Robot's "true" form in order to give him a form which resembles Mega Man but has a few distinct features. Besides, technically speaking the other robot never existed in the cannonical storyline since Dr. Wily never kidnapped Mega Man (who should have just been Rock A.K.A. Mega anyways) and would have never built the clone anyway. Plus, the Copy Robot is a shape shifter so he can take any form he wants, within certain limitations of course.

Interesting....from what I can see the copy robot also copy's the mood/type of a person

so if he copyed Wily he was evil

but if he copyed Megaman....

So it was Wily's Egomaniacality that led to the Copy Bot to turn on him?

Smart move..-_-,

Actually, the rockman manga calls him Copy Rock.

HA! He copied Dr. Wily's treachery, awesome.

Actually cq the Copy Robot doesn't copy their who they are, he copies their abilities. Wily programmed him for world conquest originally but gave him limited AI so he couldn't turn on him, sadly by having the Copy Robot copy him it gained Wily's technical expertise and decided to reprogram itself, well that's what I think and I'm pretty sure that's what Ryan is getting at in this comic.

Oh, the second Wily stage boss from the original MM game! I was confused who that actually was for a while.

There seems to be a bit of... hologram static at his waist in the second panel. Why would that be there? Here are two ideas that otherwise have no evidence, one is that his holographic projector (if that's what he uses) has a flaw, the other idea is that it's another robot pretending to be Copy Robot.

I think he just messed up part of the panel.

Well If he copied Dr.. Wily's Personality then shouldn't he love Dr. Wily's Family?

Ether Copy Mega hates Wily more than he loves Wily's family, or he copied wily before any family ties were made.

Basically Wily unknowingly set himself up to be backstabbed later on. Yeah, proves my point that hubris is a villain's greatest enemy...
