The Ultimate Betrayal - Part One: Making It Personal
In the Archie ComicsMega Man comic series, the plot of Mega Man 3 would not be adapted until after an adaptation of the events of Super Adventure Rockman. As a result, a few variations exist between the game and comic versions:
Light Labs was outright obliterated, with Wily's theft of Gamma being shown in a far more dramatic manner including his forcing Light to let him access Gamma by threatening Roll with Doc Robot, as well as Light physically accosting him. In the game, Light only informs Mega Man that Wily had stolen Gamma off-screen, with the lab clearly not being destroyed.
On a related note, Light discovers Blues' presence far sooner than in the game, where he learns from Wily that Blues is now working for him. In the original game, he only discovered that Blues was still around in the ending when he overheard Blues' tune upon nursing Mega Man back to health.
There is but a single Doc Robot featured in this arc, rather than the multiple versions faced in the game.
The Holograph Mega Mans faced in the game are the Copy Robot equipped with the weapons of the Mega Man 3 Robot Masters, using Gemini Man's holographic abilities to project its holograms.
