Series 4 is split almost completely in half. Half in a cool alternate universe and half with us mooching off the Sinister Six. Originally, this series was supposed to be ALL in the Otherverse, however by this point EVERYONE was sick of being anywhere except the MM universe, so that was cut a little short. I'd have to say that, despite some lack of focus, this series has great moments. Mirror, Mirror has GOTTA be the best epilogue in the entire run - it highlights Gemini's drama and action sequences as well as my goofy comedy and it was the very first ep to be written completely in the private forum waaaay back in the short period after it merged with the Megaman United forum and before it shut down completely.
And, of course, it has the specials which were mainly projects that were half-finished or saved content from Viral Infection. The SNL epilogues were an idea by Stoneman that never quite materialized, but were finished at the time by Iceman because ...... well, there's little sense in wasting a good idea. And the VI epilogue was posted just because it's referenced so damn much in the S6, my epilogues, chats, the forum ....... basically it was one HUGE in-gag that no one woulda got if I didn't save it. And that's Series 4 in a nutshell.
