EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW: "Mega Man" #42, "Sonic Universe" #69 & "Sonic the Hedgehog" #266

Sonic, Shadow and Mega Man are ready to throw down on a new set of "Super Smash Variant" covers by Rafa Knight for Archie Comics' "Sonic Universe" #69, "Mega Man" #42 and "Sonic the Hedgehog" #266. In addition to the full image of Knight's interlocking covers, Archie has also provided CBR with exclusive preview pages from each issue. Although the three characters aren't set to face off within the interiors of the issue, there's still a lot of exciting events in store for the video game icons -- including a battle between Shadow and Knuckles in "Sonic Universe" #69.

Of course, the covers aren't the only place the three heroes can be seen locked in combat. The trio will also face off against one another in Nintendo's upcoming "Super Smash Bros." video game for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U with Sonic and Mega Man as playable fighters and Shadow as an assist trophy.

"Sonic Universe" #69, "Mega Man" #42 and "Sonic the Hedgehog" #266 hit stores in October.
