    He's anti-authoritarian in that he disrespects authority, not that he actively acts against it, since he doesn't actively act against anything- he just chills, and if he sees something go wrong, he stops it, then goes back to chilling. He's a reactive character.
     
    Bringing up him fighting Tails in Archie, if CSS meant to reference House of Cards, feels a weird point to bring up here considering he was fighting Tails in that Tails and family were against the crown. It's one of the most "Archie Sonic isn't actually anti-authoritarian" moments; even if you want to argue the whole setup isn't overall anti-authoritarian (which is arguable in either way- the message is clearly not meant to be authoritarian, it's meant to be "when good king rule it's good", like with One Piece, but the way Penders took it further in Archie did definitely step into outright "no, Sonic wants a dictator in anyway, just has to be the one he grew up with"), that specific moment definitely is.
     
    EDIT: adding in of course that you have to willingly remove specific cultural and political contexts from the table- if you find monarchies in and of themselves to be tyrannical, SatAM's premise of course is utterly broken, and thus so is Archie's. There's also some nuance to be had in the difference between Archie minisseries setup (Sonic's a stranger stepping in to help fight Robotnik) vs the final Archie/SatAM setup (Sonic's trying to bring back the regime of his parents' generation). Either case, House of Cards is a low point in its entirety for Sonic's character.

    and it just donned on me that this whole thing with Patch is literally just revenge on Antoine for #112, how petty can you be?

    "hate" is a very strong word. It's more that it's not his style. He's not tied down by anything, including global allegiances. The matter might have been diluted by the pseudo-cop Archie Sonic, but the games have never gone down that path.  

    It's also why I wasn't sold on the movie before it came out, but that's only kind of related.

    Roger confirmed in an interview that he chose to leave the Sonic role. He wasn't fired.

    The Antoine story has a lot of holes in it, but it's pretty effective. But it's hilarious to imagine someone just moving away in the middle of this war where people are getting roboticized.

    Completely serious - Issue 150 is the most horrible, disgusting issue of the entire series, out of any era - bar none.

    I know people are focusing on the multiverse stuff, but what does "Sonic redemption quest" even mean? That's honestly a weird plot hook
    I for one am hyped to see Sonic repent for his sins.

    On this note about Drummond, all we know is that his agent reached out to SEGA and they had a chat. It could be the most nothing thing ever. It'll probably be this. verbatim:

    I would vote Brian Drummond for Sonic because it would be hilarious watching everyone confuse him with Ryan Drummond.

    The only problem with them tying things from the games into the TV series is that the viewers would have to play the games to understand exactly what is going on with Sonic's situation.  Unless the TV series explains all that in the first episode or just make it a big mystery element of the series about what Sonic did wrong and building up clues in the series leading up to that revelation.

    I think this means we aren't getting the movie synergy like people thought if the one VA who was in the games and the movie couldn't reprise.

    People who talk about kids shows broaching serious subject matter always oversell "DARK" so they don't have to feel embarrassed about watching a cartoon.

    Said this in the status updates earlier, but I think it needs to be said here.
    Keep your expectations in check. Absolutely walk in expecting a weird looking Sonic who wears clothes and goes to school that will open up a portal to a multiverse of different Sonics that never existed before this point. 
    Getting yourself hyped up on it being some super-meta Sonic thing is not the wisest decision. Even if it does turn out to be that, you really shouldn't expect it.

    Well, this is a genuine surprise! Not in a million years did I see this show would have a big series-spanning plotline, especially not as ambitious as exploring a multiverse. I thought it'd just be a basic summary that could mean anything depending on the story like Boom or IDW:
    Not a whole focused plot, and..
    Whatever the hell this means. I'm guessing that might be about a new series-exclusive character. 
    It makes sense though. Streaming works better for serialized plots than episodic ones, but again, didn't think it'd be about a series-spanning plot. That means this probably won't last beyond 24 episodes, and it'll be another short-lived Sonic cartoon. 
    As cool as it would be if this explored already existing continuities, I'm expecting something more like what Archie did.  Cowboy Sonic, Noir Sonic, Evil Sonic.. etc. They don't like bringing stuff back that isn't part of the current brand. Even Boom Sonic would be a miracle.
    Is that Sonic Rift thing about something similar, because if that's fake, this is a crazy coincidence. Maybe this is a tie-in to that?
