To be fair to ken, and I'm not fond of doing that, that's not uncommon. In the sense that one's evil twin, isn't the opposite of them , rather their personality turned into an evil direction. The Persona Series is a series that does this exact thing sometimes dubbing it " The true self " .  So Evil Sonic, Scourge or whatever being sonic, but having all his personality traits turned into the dick direction is normal and that type of character would feasibly more than anyone else be able to impersonate the other version of themselves. Because its just them twisted in another direction. Its something Ian Flynn delved into himself, with scourge suggesting that difference between him and sonic is just a single bad day. Its pretty open philosophy on the nature of being, that the only thing separating you from someone you might not like is circumstance rather than some ingrained character that one person has over the other.

For example, in a hypothetical. Alt universe evil shadow, would not be the opposite of shadow, he would most likely have the bluntness, callousness  , determination, indomitable will, stubbornness ect that shadow has but all of those traits would be used for evil means. And given that he and shadow would likely have the same personality just on a different tilt, impersonating that type of person seems relatively easy. And any minor differences in character can just be brushed off as " Oh maybe he's having a bad day " or something

 

I think it sorta helps that Sonic himself is already rather cocky, rebellious, and adventurous.

Well, since Penders posted that last nugget about Sonic and relationships, might as well clarify some of the other stuff he said in conjunction to that, and oh boy, is it ever a DOOZY.

 

 

 

Valiant effort there, @Adamis, but I don't think he's gonna get the message. That bit about the 'family line' is practically medieval.

Oh wow, that last sentence really is a pothole.

...well, in this day and age, we’d be better off. Overpopulation is still very much a problem last I checked.

Ch'yeah. :lol:

Word of God is that Sonic isn't into any of that because he literally is a boy at heart, and will forever be one:

Ignoring the Sonamy stuf, the key part here is the sentence "Sonniku was eien ni shonen no haato desu".

The way the original Sonic Team designed Sonic's character is for him to be a kid. He's not interested in romance because he is a boy who wants to do boy stuff like looking for adventures, fun and excitement and hanging with his best buddy. 

Oh. So he's like Peter Pan. That's cool.

. . .

I think I understand Sonic and Amy so much more, thinking in terms of Peter and Wendy.

Tails so much more, in terms of a Lost Boy following Pan.

Robotnik and Hook, with his fatalistic obsession and alter-ego father figure connection (Kintobar, Mr. Darling).

And Knuckles... well, I think that course was played out by the time Knuckles came. (shrug)

Amy seems like Tinkerbell to me

As a writer, i always ask myself "who do character fuck?" Ask any writer and they'll tell you, they always do several drafts exploring their character's sex having from all angles. Does this character work better as a gay, an asexual, is he a player??? I have hundreds of documents in my filing cabinet, each one exploring that great question. Anyway, I just moved in across the street and by law I have to inform you that I am a registered sex offender.

Edit: Oh my god that one about how asexual characters are "less interesting." It really tells you what kind of writer Ken is that the only layer of depth worth caring about with a character is whether they're sexually attracted to someone and who specifically they're attracted to.

Double edit: Hey by the way to be perfectly clear I'm not saying Ken is a sex pervert but this is a really creepy question to pose about a children's cartoon character who is also in his mid-teens and described as being perpetually young. I am playing it up for ~comedic effect~

Yes Mr. Penders, that's what fanfics are for.

Aaand we have a tiny LSC update. Oh, nothing as substantial as a new page, but that "Dr. Zephyr" has been sketched out.

 

Though I wish to God he hadn't been. God, I mistook the collar of his outfit as being his neck folds...!

You know, as a side note, but I cannot help but feel that this guy exists purely because Dr. Starline is enjoying a great deal of popularity thanks to IDW. 

Criminy, those eyes!

Still, good on him for involving a member of the Felidae. Though it does make me wonder about where this character falls morality-wise.

Also, is that an N on his forehead?

I just can not with this man

 

Has Sonic really had that many storylines to warrant such a claim?

...why am I getting the feeling that he's trying to reference Harry Potter.

I'm pretty sure it's nothing, it just looks like he drew the shading of the hairline particularly badly. To me, it looks like the overly shaded end of a stand of hair. If you look closely, you can see a strand of hair poking out of the piece of hair that resembles a scar/N.

Sonic's had more than enough to warrant such a claim. The problem is that Ken Penders is an egotistical man who doesn't read others' stories, and thinks his work is the best work. It'd be one thing if he said Endgame is the best of what he did for Sonic, but best overall? Yeah fucking right.

Ian's worst work is still about 50 times better than Endgame. Hell, at least the likes of Iron Dominion still had an interesting story, and had the characters actually in-character. Endgame had everyone get hit with the idioticy ball as they believed Sonic is capable of murder, capable of murdering someone he loved, and the only reason anyone stops believing that is because dragons now suddenly have magical truth detection abilities (never brought up before). This is coming from the man who also believes he should own Knuckles because "his stories brought value to the character". 

As for what are actually the best storylines IMO, I'd like to point you towards Eggman Empire (174-177), Scrambled (SU 37-41), Champions (268-271), Control (264-267). Lead-up and aftermath of Genesis (219-224 and 230-235 retrospectively ) are also excellent, not sure if I'd qualify them as best though.

He's been going for nearly 30 years now, so there have been a lot of stories.

Endgame might have been the best one to date, and even then, that would require me checking the calendar.

And that's not even getting into other media...

Oh, I know there's a lot of stories. I was just questioning the specific term storyline, which implies cohesive serialization.

Nah, it's just some texturing of the fur that looks a bit like it, nothing more.

Penders? Tooting his own horn? Shock and horror. This is so very out of character for a man normally defined by his humility and ability to give due credit to his peers on the book. Whatever is the world coming to?

In seriousness, don't pay it any mind. If he really thinks his ripoff of The Fugitive is THE best storyline in the history of the comic, then it's just another sign of his inability/refusal to move past the 90s.

At this rate, I'm surprised he isn't claiming the Russos read Endgame, and loved his storytelling so much that they used Endgame as the title of the final Avengers movie as an unofficial tribute. 

Or y'know, claiming Avengers Endgame ripped him off. Both are equally ridiculous yet equally in-line with PendersLogic.

Lol, I guess the dude forgot that there was more than one writer for the Endgame saga. 👀 Both Gallagher and Bollers had a hand in the build-up issues and the proper #50. Then again, Penders isn't above diminishing the importance of other writers on the book...

Oh that's right, the Downunda Freedom Fighters were Gallagher's. What did Mr. Bollers do though?

someone tweeted at him that there are better more beloved arcs in the books and they mention stuff by Bollers and the Post-Reboot arcs. Penders said that all those arcs were build up from Endgame...like how does he know that when he flat out addmited he never read any of the other works?

Speaking of which, when did Black Panther as a comic come out?
