Kenny boy really thinks they intentionally styled the design based on his works:

 

Sounds like he jumped for a comeback and didn't realize what he was saying. 

Nothing new, it would seem.

Holy Crap. This is literally the same as that G.U.N officer Robotnik tortures in the fan film calling him a Bastard to show how "Edgy" and "not for kids" this is.

...Come to think of it hasn't Penders said he's aiming for kids? But then again Harry Potter used Bitch too so what do I know? A real problem here though is continuity. If everything Penders did is canon than shouldn't Station Square be on Mobius with the humans who survived the Gene Bomb? He Co-Wrote the Adventure Adaptation and used Station Square and Humans so shouldn't lien-Da recognize Taylor as one?

Bollars concepts?

IN MY PENDERS COMIC??

( :-p )

Oops. Outside of the event that Penders came up with some variation of the initial concept and Bollers just ran with, sounds like someone got their wires crossed on what's actually theirs for once.

I could’ve sworn Ken was against the “future Earth” idea and thought of Mobius as just being an alien planet.

I couldn't tell ya about before, but he definitely wanted to push the Echyd'nyas and other creatures as being alien.

The only consistent point Penders has made regarding the target audience is how consistently he vacillates on the subject. First he wanted it targeted at 'Young Teenage Girls', then teens in general, THEN decided it was for 'everyone', and on and on and on. He's trying to cast the net as wide as possible with regards as to who this can be sold to, without having any idea of how to actually convey that fact in his (inept) writing. 

As for the continuity issue, that was only ever a sales pitch. Penders has never, ever cared one iota for the works of the other writers and long did everything in his power to ignore whatever anyone else was doing, be it Bollers, Flynn or DeCesare. Even then, Penders can't even remember his OWN continuity for squat- recall, in 25YL Sabre was  vegetable, yet here he's mobile and speaking. 

Holding this man to anything he claims is an exercise in futility.

And yet he still gave a scientific explanation to magic rocks using the idea. I think he's treating Mobius as a separate planet here but also every story he wrote is canon and by extension so should Karl Bollers and oh no I'vegone crosseyed.

Aye, he did. Which is decidedly ironic given that I'm pretty certain the map he made for Mobius is what inspired the 'Mobius Is Actually Future Earth' development to begin with.

Now, call me crazy, but maybe, just MAYBE, if you want to present a setting as a wholly alien planet? Then perhaps you SHOULDN'T make the geography of the place look like a modified version of Earth's own. Call it a hunch.

Fun times.

Especially hilarious when you remember this is an Extension of the Mirage continuity so it's less that it "grew up" than stayed the same. 

Also that No Pizza signs kills me.

You know at least TMNT started as a much more serious darker comic book series as a parody to the dark comic book series in the 80's, Sonic at the end of the day began and was always a colorful series meant to appeal to a wilder audience.

 

There is a reason why the edgyness of Shadow the Hedgehog rubbed people the wrong way. Having swear words in your comic doesn't make your comic more adult Penders dear.

Speaking of 90s-era edge...
 

The CyberDark Colony.  Wow.  And complete with capitalizing Dark despite CyberDark being a single word.  It's like I've stepped into a time rift and landed right into a pile of #0 issues and foil cards.

I remember this being mentioned once as a title for one of the intended books of the series. Yet again, I am left to wonder why Penders even bothered with any of this given the changes he's been making to things he assuredly owns- or does he really think that the 'Long TIme Fans' he so professes that this is meant for are going to appreciate that one of the staples of his works is now going to be operating under this utterly ludicrous name? 

And Penders is yet again being far too easy on himself- he had PLENTY of opportunities to depict things, he just never took them because he was far, far too fascinated by wasting time on meandering, self-indulgent tripe like Chaos Knuckles and M25YL. I'm all but certain this 'CyberDark Colony' is going to be the thing that justifies how the Legion has and makes all their technological stuff despite the Twilight Zone being a wasteland. Which would have been nice to have been properly explained within the story itself back then, but gosh gee, why do that when we can steal reference famous poems?

"CyberDark"...

You know, even if they're villains, is it their goal to tell people "hey we are EVIL, we have DARK in our name, now shake in terror" ...? Do they even see themselves as villains ?

You could be a villain but see yourself being right or anything, and not resorting to using "dark" or "evil" or whatever just to emphasize your bad side...
