    Adamis got a reaction from DaddlerTheDalek in The Lara-Su Chronicles and Ken Penders topic - READ PAGE 164, POST 4096   
    I posted a more accurate summary on Retro and forgot to post it here :
    - He claims that since neither SEGA nor EA/Bioware fought for the rights of Shade, he can use her.
    - One of his arguments is that SEGA never have gone against Archie for losing the rights to the comic material/assets, so obviously they wouldn't go after him about Shade. He uses the case of DeCarlo as the basis of this argument.
    - He claims he has no plans to use her other than a couple of sentences in Julie-Su's bio and a 2 or 3 panel sequence in a story.
    - His reasons : "protecting The Lara-Su Chronicles"
    - "Because it took so long to fight Archie, it created complications in my case against SEGA & EA, resulting in essentially a dismissal. But because the dismissal was without prejudice, that meant the lawsuit against SEGA & EA could be refiled if SONIC CHRONICLES or any elements from it became an arguable issue."
    - "From my perspective, my lawyers have always cautioned that if THE LARA-SU CHRONICLES were to become a success, there was a chance SEGA might want a piece of the action. What precludes that from happening is the passage of time as a result of my taking so long to get it done. For SEGA to file anything against me raises the question and my defense via the fact they never sued Archie for the loss of a valuable asset such as the ARCHIE Sonic series. By not taking action against Archie, or against me over the years as a result of my selling Lara-Su merchandise, SEGA has placed themselves in the same position as Dan DeCarlo with Archie. When they had the chance to fight back, they choose not. Thus Dan lost his case against Archie because he never fought Archie over the Josie opyrights."
    - "My actions regarding Shade and also the Archie SONIC & KNUCKLES stories are more in line to protect not only my interests, but that of the other creators and to keep the work from falling into public domain."

    Okay, I had a long private conversation with him.
    He doesn't own Shade. At all. He's just using the fact that neither Sega nor EA/Bioware are claiming the character. "Sega has essentially surrendered those rights by not contesting my claims"...
    He claims he has no plans to use her other than a couple of sentences in Julie-Su's bio and a couple panel sequence in a story. Why ? "In the interest of protecting THE LARA-SU CHRONICLES".
    He's also stalling, taking a long time to finish the comic so he has less chances to have to give Sega a "piece" of the "success" of TLSC.

    I'm pretty sure the rainbow-colored racetrack is from SA2 originally. Given that, I doubt it was an "innuendo" for anything.

    You can spare us the moral posturing over something that's been in the games for 23 years just because you want to use it as a point to screech about "corruption" over gender identity.

    And, again, that literally every argument being used now with the name "Iizuka" was used with the name "Naka" in 2005. Literally grab Roger's post and replace "Iizuka" for "Naka" and it's the average Sonic forum post 15 years ago.
