      @Jango The manager of the website, Ryan Scarlett, already knew some actual details while Zippo was leaking stuff, so yes lol. It's just he's gone awfully quiet on this end lately after updating the banners even on the discord to this, which is :eyes:

      Spoiler

      He probably got a press kit tbh

      Its best not to let others overhype things for you. It keeps expectations in check.

      I'd take my winnings here and now for calling it, but I hereby raise my bet that the main Sonic is the only character from the main verse in the show

      Honestly... if Prime sonic is alone and we have a roulette of characters each dimension... it could work

       

      Like the first dimension is 2 episodes long and it has tails knuckles and amy

      The second has shadow rouge and omega

      Third Cream silver blaze

      Yeah alternate characters are what I'm hopeful for as well. Something along the lines of Tawna in Crash 4

      God imagine something like

      One dimension is styled like a 1950s detective movie and has the chaotix

      And the other is like team dark being agents in a terminator esque dimension

      Then the other has knuckles and the echidna tribe

       

       

      That is the way to do it

      now we just need to find unused audio of him talking to really flip the world upside down

  7. Before that happens it's far more likely SEGA will lax off on the mandates themselves. They obviously brought them into play to standardize the characterizations of Shadow and whoever else across all branches of media, in a "Paper Mario can't have toads with different body designs" for the sake of series homogeny kind of way. Once they've got this, the TV show, the movies, and whatever else they have planned, they'll have accomplished what they set out to do in the first place in terms of brand consistency, and probably will back off from how strictly they demand portrayals. Look at Sonic X; they didn't have any problem with that series developing him further than what he was originally, even though he had to be exactly as he was in SA2 when he was introduced.
  8. I disagree that it's shit writing. I disagree that it's derailing the character. And I especially disagree with it devaluing the character when it actually respects where he came from rather than the (head)canon that the fanbase has assigned his character. Not much else to say outside of that tbh. You don't have to accept that lmao but I certainly don't want to see the portrayal trampled for such a one-sided witch hunt that always happens in this comic/IDW Twitter. I did move on years after I knew the buddy buddy version of Shadow was here to stay due to fan demand. Now it's back and I'm perfectly fine with it lmao And yes, the full issue will have more moments that'll showcase Shadow. I doubt they'll all go over in the exact opposite manner as this line did, but it should be worth reading at least.
  9. I disagree when that alternative you suggest is no different from the buddy-buddy, no problems, everyone gets along world that is modern Sonic storytelling where every character and their individual thoughts take a backseat to keeping the plot moving forwards. Forces was hella boring because all the characters were blank slates who agreed with each other on what to do. I'm not saying Shadow being brash and blunt like this is a writing masterpiece that adds a million times more intrigue to the story, but compared to just being another bit player who could be replaced with anyone else for the same effect? Sure it's more interesting lmao Though, again, that isn't exactly demanded of Shadow here. He could have said that and his IDW characterization would still be there to enjoy. I just, again, don't have much of a problem with it being there in the first place.
  10. Because their end goals are no longer the same? They disagree on what needs to be done right then and there, and he went out of his way to say it. That's not baggage, that's a decision made off of differing perspectives and past contention in the comic. The decisions he makes may be inherently built off of that baggage, but that doesn't change the fact that those are still his decisions at the end of the day.
  11. Yeah I get the dislike for the moments like in the zombot arc. A lot of it can feel like it's contrived like that, and that's what you want to stray from when writing a story. Moments like these aren't comparable at all in my opinion, though. It's one line that has the same effect as a less prickley choice of words in synopsis, but falls on a distinct side of Shadow's portrayed disposition. Is it unlikable? Sure. Is it as offensive as the zombot example? Heeeeell no, and the fact that it's focused on, when again, we have Shadow going out of his way to catch Sonic as he's falling in the previous issue before this one, chastizing him in a less aggressive and more banter-driven manner for it. It's taking the microscope to a few select moments than the entire picture, and that's completely stupid. Why get hung up on one aspect of Shadow that's always been a part of him to the point where we unironically shout "VEGETA SHADOW" from the rooftops every time the previews drop?
  12. Quick someone find the manual

      You can tell its fake by him calling it Sonic Adventure Battle 2. The 2 comes before the Battle, get it right!

  13. That's not my logic. And they were both planning on taking on Starline together until the distraction was used lol, not like Shadow cooperating with Sonic and his friends is unheard of in general His trauma is what gave him his cynical and distanced disposition (as well as his hate that fueled him yes lol) as compared to his curious/hopeful perspective before the ARK events, that's the only thing it factors into. He's always been a pretty introspective, existential guy tho lmao I definitely prefer him being a shit stirrer compared to being boring, yes. Or rather, I'd much rather see the character naturally progress from point A to B, where he goes from someone closed off from everyone else and trusting his own judgement, bitter attitude and all, to someone who actually learns to open up in the way he was open when he was with Maria. Everyone always leaps to the "team dark friends for life" bandwagon as their favorite version of Shadow after 06 but that never felt earned or natural, even though I wouldn't be opposed to it. Overall though I think there's far more weight behind treating him as a nuanced character who makes his own decisions for his own reasons in line with his established character rather than an ideal that people want to see, at the end of the day.
  14. Capacity? Him being so close and being raised alongside Maria is the entire reason he has empathy like this in the first place. If he went through the same level of trauma without a relationship like that, he'd still be an outright villain. Again, though, that made him jaded and bitter, and that's been his characterization since those events. You can't just wash all that away, moving on from the past or not. Basically I enjoy it for bringing the dynamic back into play after so many takes ignored it, but if this had been how shadow was portrayed for the last decade by everyone else, all that'd be left is the lack of accomplishment he's displaying lmao
