    Now see if that's what people are wanting that's fine (and again is essentially what's currently happening) but the way people are phrasing it makes it sound like they want Sonic to lose and never recover from that loss. Which would be bad storytelling. A loss that Sonic comes back from, like the Metal Virus, is perfectly fine but one that he never comes back from? What would be the point of that?

    Let's see.
    1 It just a snazy tittle that makes him more mysterious. "Ultimate Lifeform" is pretty meaningless too, but sounds awesome.
    2 It emphasizes his loner nature, same as Frenchmen would feel living in Britain. Granted, he might never meet other echidna, but that what makes it interesting. He doesn't know if meeting other echidna would change his life. And he will never learn that, but probably will wonder.
    3 With no other echidna, duty to Master Emerald and sins or Pachacamat are only his burden, thus making him way serious about his job.
    4 It's a simple, yet sad backstory, that makes him more relatable.
    5 While logic behind powers in Sonic is loose, with no other echidna Knuckles has unique power set (gliding, climbing, digging) that probably no other fictional character has.
    6 It forces official artists to use different species, thus making cast more colorful. We all remember Penders and his amazing designs.
    Also don't think of echidnas as animals like cats, but as nationality like Aztec (which BTW, I'm pretty sure were wiped out). I'm guessing animal races back then stuck to 'their own kind', Same thing is with Babylon Rouges, who all were birds.

    I feel like Knuckles childhood is a mystery that will never be explained and frankly I'm  kinda fine with that.
    He didn't even knew about Chaos, that's a big oversight in his education. Maybe last echidnas were so ashamed of their past that they didn't tell stories to their kids, just assured them that protecting ME is very important. Maybe it goes even further, maybe echidnas intentionally didn't reproduced, understanding that their times is over  (just keep one bloke every generation to be guardian).
    Or maybe something big happened that wiped out remaining echidnas and Knuckles suffers amnesia (that would explain his bad preparation).
    We all remember Penders and his hidden city and spying dads. In Fleetway echidnas just 'left' and Knucles is apparently waiting for them (and to be fair, he knows much more about island). In STC-Online they added that he's lived in Tikal's times, but he's connected to magic crystal  (not ME) that keeps resurrecting him, even if he lost some of his memories.
    So there are plenty of possible answers, either too dark or confusing (or just disappointing) to spend game explaining them. If I was Sega I would celebrate Knuckles anniversary by publishing comic that "is-or-isn't-canon. your-choice-fans" that gives us  answers. But that's just me.

    Pretty cool to see that Sonic Team themselves have to aprove of the designs,

    What I find pretty interesting is that indeed SEGA seems to be more involved even in the creative process on the character, and not only to "make sure that it fits with the universe" (as they made some remark about how make it fit the character.

    So we lost Tracy for the time being? Damn.
    He and Flynn revitalized the Archie comics together, hopefully things will turn out okay for him and his family.

    Yeah...no. IDW's other books get delayed all the time. Not sure what the problem is but it's been like this for a long time. I think I first started hearing about them when Revolution started.

    it just sounds Penders is betting all of his luck on Sega and the other people who worked on thise issue not to care enough  to make a hassle about it, Which is fair Sonic Team has no issues turning a blind eye on Sonc Zines but I wonder if he secertly settled with Butler over a price or hoping Butler wont care.

    That reminds me: make Salcole fully canon, if not much more explicit to the point that it’s hard to deny.

    I really liked the post-reboot myself. much more then what became before it, I really didn't see anyone using the cancelling as an excuse that it didn't got good. After all the cancellation is more related to Sonic Team wanting to try out a new publisher and start a new, (bad blood and because Archie had a habbit of portraying their characters  in a very very not so flattering matter) and partly because Archie wanted to move away  a bit from their action titles and focus on RIverdale.
    The idw series is a lot like the reboot series, so that makes sense to why I like it, IDW just needs a bit more characters, still miss the egg-bosses which they could move with them.

    The reboot was objectively better than Pre-reboot and IDW is continuing that trend.
    See I can state my opinions as fact too.

    I disagree. I thought it was a fun light read and I got a few good chuckles out of it.

    Ben Hurst and Ken Penders did not end their partnership on the best of terms, and its still shameful of Ken whenever he badmouths Hurst on Twitter knowing dam wel he cant defend himself anymore and with Ken's art on the Satam box it all Just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    Love it myself, the first year does seem a bit on the rushed side but it got better and better, the art is consistent good and I love the characters interaction and the zombie-robot plot is pretty amazing!
     
    I get confused when people are saying Idw Amy is too much like Sally or Tangle is a ""Sally Copy"" There was more to Sally then just being a leader type character, she guided the characters, Amy on the other hand just took a leading organizing role, but isnt telling Sonic or Tails what to do during battle,  and Tangle and Sally are nothing alike

    Ken was not the artist Many Hands, Many Hands was most likely someone at Archie that was asked to full in due to a lack of artist avaibale and they lacked the budget to get one one their better guest artist, Penders art style was always pretty obvious as you could tell he struggled making the cartoon characters not too human 

    I think I know what you mean with the coloring because yes when Penders colors his own work he tends to abuse the dodge and burn tools, and it seems to happen in the Many Hands issue of the Satam episode
    ( example of Ken doing his own coloring)

    This is just a personal opinion, but I didn’t really like how Ken Represented relationships in the comics either. I love romance stories but sonic the hedgehog ISN’T a series you want to center romance around the way ken penders did. He took relationships way too far, including the introduction of banging furries. If some young  female animal wasn’t banging another male older animal then he would lose his MIND. I like romantic spins on things, sure, but sometimes the romance included was just... poorly written and uncalled for. I wasn’t the biggest Archie comic fan so I can’t claim I know EVERYTHING about the Archie comics, but expert or not, you kinda have to agree that Ken Penders did take it a littleeee too far when he made a 16 year old blue hedgehog into a womanizer...
