Priority Q&A
Andrew D.
In Archie Mega Man, when Xander winds up traveling through time, he sees the events of Worlds Collide. Since those events took place in the future, what would have happened when Mega Man reached that point in time? Would he have been destined to relive those events?

SEGA seems to be pushing Zavok and the Zeti a lot in many titles after Lost World, do you think it’s a good idea on SEGA’s part to keep the Zeti around?

Diane W.
What if Bunnie got infected with the Metal Virus? Since the Metal Virus cannot infect something that’s already metal, what would happen to her robotic limbs? Will they remain on her as a zombot or would they fall off and new limbs grow in their place as the metal virus can heal damage that the zombots take?


Standard Q&A
Omega Markus
If IDW put you in charge of Doing a Dragon ball comic Book how would you Have writing it and what Era of the characters would you use The Kid Goku Era of the characters or the Z era of the characters like Sayian,Frieza,Cell or buu arc or have it take place after one of the Z movies How would you and handle a crossover with Sonic and dragon ball

What were your greatest struggles in your lives and how did you manage to overcome them?

Are the Zone Cops/Corps gonna be returning at all? I found them rather interesting in their role and how they also introduced a vast multiverse full of various Zones and great potential, plus we never got to see Zone Cop Zhadow(Shadow). So I’m curious if they are gonna come back at some point?
