    I think the sonic to DC comparison is weird? Like I don't think sonic is superman, he's the flash. And I guess you could compare tails to batman, but he's more like Tim Drake robin than the batman. So I guess the big three in the sonic universe is , The flash, robin 3, and Wonder woman. The closest superman comparison, weirdly enough I can see is like shadow? But even then, its more similar to super boy's backstory than superman. I guess scourge is reverse flash? Is Silver Green lantern? This is interesting to think about.

    Also one, in general. Knuckles is totally wonder woman at all times. Good comparison. Even has a magical island. Two I don't think there are a lot of characters in sonic who would get regimed up , if given the option to be honest. I think its just kinda the nature of the franchise? They are constantly fighting against one. Not saying absolute power can corrupt absolutely , but the value of freedom is something they are quite familiar with

    I don't think shadow would take regime at all? Shadow would 100% be on batman's side. Shadow doesn't think you should kill all criminals and end all crimes. He's friends with a criminal, and a murderous robot. He does think that in this situation, the person is dangerous. Don't take shadow handling this situation as some larger scope of how he does things. He's not gonna kill some random criminal, he'll beat em up and say an edgy line then leave. And as a guy who's afraid of his own power, you don't think he would see superman and go " Nope nope, none of this nope. Neither me , him or anyone else should be lord god emperor nope"

    Even still there was attempt to restrain him. Much like knuckles with the M.E you can't just leave him out in the open air, and then stuff happens and be like " Oooops " . " Well we had the courage to let him do what he wanted to do " No, put the emerald in a facility, Put eggman, in jail Using mind altering devices to keep someone prison is another whole moral quandary that I don' think sonic is ready to explore on a deep level. I don't think that's sonic version of civil war, i think this will end quickly. Though that sounds incredibly interesting.

    He does. Shadow was having his memories manipulated. The entire plot of sonic adventure 2 relies on the fact that Gerald basically messed with shadows mind before they or during ( WHEN THIS HAPPENS IS EXTREMELY CONFUSING ) the time shadow was in the pod.And when shadow realizes this at the end of the game, what does he do? He sacrifices his life Every sing time, that shadow is operating on his own faculties , shadow does the right thing. Shadow will even try to give his own life, he will murder what his essentially a chance at having a family to do the right thing. He will continue to fight with an organization that try and to occasionally capture and restrain him to do the right thing. Every time shadow is making his own choices, he does the right thing. Shadow has earned that benfit of the doubt Eggman? The only time you can get eggman to do good is if the world is gonna explode and he has no part in it. That's it. There is no memory manipulation or he wasn't in control of his faculties. He has time and again, made the choice to be while entertaining, a super villian. These are not comparable. And it would be strait up dishonest to try and make someone who was having his mind messed with, to someone who was actively making a choice. " Oh man the winter solider and the punisher are basically the same character " No that's not how that works. Eh, I think shadow playing judge jury and executioner in general isn't a good thing and a good flaw for his character to have. THAT SAID This isn't a he can change thing, at least that we know of. Its a " he lost his memory thing " . Like if eggman strait up was like " I wanna change my ways I went too far " I would be with that more than this. Shadow is a Needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few kinda guy, and well eggman is just quite literally a ticking time bomb, and if he ever regains his memory, this is a problem. And you can't be like "Well we though he could change, were sorry " as everyone in that village gets turned into robot fuel. Sorry doesn't fix that , you know what does though. Putting eggman in a jail, shadow doesn't have to kill.But if shadow is willing to put eggman in a cell I am 100% behind shadow. Eggman is danger. Who when in complete control of his decisions will do the wrong thing. He has no interest in forgiveness he has interest in protecting the most people possible and thats with eggman in a cell. ( or in the ground ). If he's willing to do the fomer, then I have to side with shadow Your forgiveness means nothing, when people are in danger. Put him in a cell.

    Shadow and Eggmans situations aren't really comparable because eggman has never earned the benfit of doubt. So to try position that as, " Shadow seems to forget people can change " would be intellectually dishonest. Shadow knows people can change, he's friends with two of them. He doesn't trust eggman can change, and for good reason. And odds are he's gonna be right. And to try and put eggman and shadow on the same level is dishonest. I think it would be better for the plot if it was positioned as, shadow coming off as scary, scaring the children he has helped and they come to protect him from shadow. And then shadow backs down. If you try to position eggman as morally equal to most anyone in the series its gonna come off intellectually dishonest. But if you make shadow look like the bad guy, or a monster ( especially considering the last most of these people have seen of shadow is not realy versions of him murdering everything ) you get shadow to back down because he has issues with that. And when eggman eventually does go evil again, you can deal with that, when you get to it.

    I'm a bit cynical I guess But I got a feeling its never address. The hope I have is Ian used it as , shadow was busy fighting something bigger. Some big shit is coming down the line

    I was just making a silly observation my guy One rouge's fingers on that cover look, weird. And she seems to really be interested about shadow being on fire

    If you think about every story or game about needing to protect something and someone is just keep away. Body guards are professional keep away players

    Nope, gonna move right past that. I feel like this cover is a bit crowded, I feel like there might be a more elegant way to convey this information
