The lights are on
Only the first Mega Man Game Boy game is currently available on the 3DS Virtual Console, but Capcom is planning to expand that roster significantly.
Capcom has announced the Game Boy versions of Mega Man 2, 3, 4, and 5 are all planned for release on the Virtual Console. The Game Boy Color's Mega Man Xtreme and Xtreme 2 are also on the way.
Capcom doesn't have a release date to announce, but we should see them soon.

Our TakeI am a huge Mega Man X fan, so the chance to play the Xtreme games is very exciting. I have played all of the X games extensively, but was never able to check out the Xtreme games. I have strangely specific memories of learning about the Xtreme games in the early days of my Internet experiences and depressingly resigned myself to the fact that I would never get to play them. I don't know why I assumed I would never play them. It might have had something to do with the Blockbuster up the street from my house that never had either of the games available for rent. If only I knew then what I know now.
