There's that big Mesa pedal, that'll probably be close.

that's a bit of an arm and leg buy though, as far as i remember they're no longer in production and ebay is the place to get em.

mesa type distortion should be available in your me50?

erm not a great deal is close to mesa type distortion, you could try and get your hands on a used V-twin pedal off ebay but it is generally quite hard to match high end amps with modelling tools/pedals

You are best off trying to get your hands on a Mesa. Pedals will get you the same style of distortion, but if they made true Mesa tone in a pedal, people wouldn't buy mesas.

If you're serious, I'll kill you.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

I recently fell captive to the "Boss MT-2 is the best". I bought it to try it out... and thank god for Guitar Center's 30 day return policy. It sucked so bad I had to destroy my brain with a giraffe cart.

Hmm.....well, if you'll settle for something close, a Rocktron Silver Dragon would be a good pedal. If you want to get a little closer, but spend a little more, a Tonebone Classic would sound great.

Mesa's V-Twin really won't give you the high gain Mesa sound like I'm sure you are looking to get. Great pedal and pretty expensive, but don't expect it to make it sound like you're playing a Road King or any Rectifier.

About Boss' Metal Zone, my signature on Petrucci's forum is actually a comment made from a guy on this site that enjoys his Metal Zone:

"Originally Posted by metalguitarist7778
Metal Zone is the most metal sound u can get, period, Mesa doesnt even compair."

Kinda sad...

I bought this one pedal a while ago that was pretty impressive for a high gain pedal - Zoom Tri Metal. It's an older pedal by them, not easy to find and it's not one of their cheap/crappy plastic pedals. See if you can find one, they usually go for at least $70+.

ya i +2 for the silver Dragon but in all reality your best bet if you like the tone is to get a Mesa
