However, Mega Man had entered inside the Chronos Institute to stop Dr. Wily. Wily then decides to send out the Genesis Unit to stop Mega Man, making Enker questioning Wily's actions on not sending the Mega Man Killers. Wily replies to Enker that the Mega Man Killers are for Wily's last defense in case the Genesis Unit fails. (MM #20)
