Mega Man #47 is the forty seventh issue in the Mega Man comic series by Archie Comics, to be released in March 2015. It will also be the third Mega Man issue before the premiere of the Worlds Unite crossover arc.
The penultimate chapter to the ultimate Mega Man epic is here! “The Ultimate Betrayal” Part Three: Mega Man must brave the many difficult challenges of Dr. Wily's newest castle! Awaiting Mega Man in the trapped-filled halls of the ferocious fortress is the vicious and super-powerful Doc Robot! After seeing the pure destruction from this ferocious machine at Light Labs, does our hero even stand a chance? Or is the dreaded Doc Robot truly unstoppable?! The answers to these questions and more, plus cover art from the legendary Patrick “SPAZ” Spaziante and a special new variant cover from fan-fav T.REX, all in this latest MEGA-issue!
Continuing from the previous issue, Mega Man faces Yellow Devil MK-II. After narrowly evading the MK-II's eye laser, Mega Man, after futilely shooting at its body, angrily attempts to figure out a quicker way to take it down. Mega Man then remembered his taking down a similar construct earlier by shooting it in the eye. He then switches to Hard Knuckle and fires it directly in the eye, also telling Rush to get the eye. After knocking the eye out, Rush then catches it and irreparably damages it. Mega Man, after congratulating Rush, proceeds forward. He then turns and warns Rush to be prepared for anything, only to be hit with a beam and have a duplicate finish his statement for him. Mega Man then recognizes the robot at Copy Robot, with Copy Robot also revealing that, thanks to Mega Man not looking properly, he now has all of Mega Man's current weapon data in addition to being new and improved. Mega Man, after noting he's more talkative than before, tried to talk him out of fighting, citing they don't have to. However, two more copies emerge and reveal that they actually have to as it is their function (although the Copy Robot corrects them with the proper pronoun). Mega Man then tries to fight the copies, only to discover after trying to punch an orange-colored Copy Robot that at least two of them were holographic copies similar to Gemini Man. He then got an idea: Switching to Search Snake, Mega Man tells Rush to target the real Copy Robot when detected. The Copy Robots quickly realize that they were at a disadvantage, and tried to destroy the Search Snakes before it finds them, but Rush managed to detect the real one (the blue-colored one), tackling him and proceeding to grab his scarf just as Mega Man vaporizes the orange copy with the Mega Buster. The real Copy Robot then tells his remaining copy to shoot either Rush or the Search Snake currently on him, but the purple copy is hesitant, realizing that if he hits the Copy Robot, he'll disappear. However, the Purple Copy is shot from behind, eliminating him. Copy Robot then bitterly states that he should have just copied Mega Man's Mega Buster, also expressing shock that Dr. Light upgraded it before deciding it doesn't matter and tells Mega Man to hurry up and finish him. Mega Man refuses to do so, as he has had enough of fighting robots for no reason. Copy Robot then protests, stating that fighting is the reason they even exist.
