In the altered reality created by the second Genesis Wave, Silver approached Sonic about disturbances to time, only to be knocked out by Copybot. Captured and delivered to Dr. Eggman and Dr. Wily aboard the Wily Egg, he was transformed into Silver Man. Partnered with Blaze Woman, he was sent to retrieve one of the Chaos Emeralds, which was the last Emerald the doctors needed to complete the set. With this accomplished, he and the other Roboticized Masters were sent to attack Sonic and Mega Man's team in the Skull Egg Zone. When Proto Man broke off from the fight, Silver and four of his comrades-Blaze Woman, Shadow Man, Rose Woman, and Knuckles Man-were sent after him by Eggman. After the Chaotix members of the Masters were restored to normal, Silver Man and Blaze Woman were recalled to the Wily Egg as a precaution.
Silver Man possesses all of Silver's psychic abilities, and specializes in employing them as an energy blast known as the Psycho Burst.
Silver Man's teamup with Blaze Woman is likely a nod to the partnership between Silver and Blaze in the Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) video game.
