One of the most fun things about Mega Man 2 (or the series' other entries), as any one who played the classic NES game will tell you, is figuring out the optimal order for beating the stages, so you can use one Robot Masters' special power against another villain vulnerable to that weapon.

Zac Gorman, the current king of animated GIFs about beloved 8/16-bit games, though, advocates a different strategy in this comic -- one that many of us lazier gamers realized and took adantage of. I always thought Mega Man looked best in this brown Metal Man outfit anyway, so it worked out.
