The irony here isn't that the audience missed an important plot point because the Author was too busy focusing the comic on himself, it's that the important plot point was perhaps the most important plot point in the entire history of the Megaman video game series, since it was the argument that led to Dr. Wily stealing Dr. Light's robots and using them to take over the world, which would lead to all of the Megaman and Megaman X video games. You'd think if there was one plot point the Author wouldn't miss out on, it would be that one.

I suppose it should be noted, however, that in the Capcom canon, the change in Dr. Wily's behavior was due to a lab accident. Originally he was apparently as good-natured as Dr. Light, and they were truly friends and equals, but his personality took a turn for the worst after a lab accident made him go crazy. That insanity is then what really led him to steal the robots and try to take over the world.

Hmm... now I'm thinking how cool it would be to have had a storyline where one of the characters ends up going back in time accidentally and causes Dr. Wily to go crazy in the first place. That would have been an awesome time loop.
