Shade Man, or known by his serial number DWN-055, is one of the Robot Masters created by an unknown scientist but was stolen and modified by Doctor Albert Wily that appears in the Mega Man comic series published by Archie Comics. Shade Man first appeared in Worlds Collide #9 during the Worlds Collide comic crossover event. Because of this, Shade Man has yet to be introduced within the main comic series.


After Dr. Eggman and Dr. Wily had met each other, they both reset their respective worlds with the Genesis Wave. Because of this, the world of Mega Man skipped years from its current timeline, resulting Dr. Wily to remember every Robot Master he's either built or modified from other doctors. Shade Man was among the many Robot Masters that Dr. Wily had revived, as Dr. Wily and Dr. Eggman sent all of the Robot Masters (excluding the original Robot Masters) to take down Mega Man, Proto Man, Rush, and Sonic with his friends. With Super Armor Mega Man restoring the timeline while Super Sonic distracted Eggman from stopping the heroes to restoring their worlds, the Robot Masters have no reconnection to these memories and thus, Shade Man has yet to be introduced in the comic series at this time.
