Teasing is something I'd expect of a more mature character. I wouldn't expect it on Amy because she's not that (most likely because she's a tween).

I don't know why Modern characters wouldn't be allowed to be used in a modern comic. 

You know, about the Tangle X Blaze dynamic, it could have been a lot more interesting than Tangle fangirling over Blaze, I wanted a banter like Sonic and Amy, but different, like ladies cat-fights, to show the contrast between Tangle's energy and excitement and Blaze's shyness and keeping her feelings repressed.

Well, technically, they'd be Dreamcast, but I agree nonetheless.

Even though that was literally the first time they met, they barely established any interaction, and Tangle was relatively nondescript in comparison?

Seriously do people nitpick at this, and do not bother to look at the ambitious composition and perspective, the improved inking, Tangle and Whisper, and Shadow's pose homage to his Sonic Forces pose ???

Any particular reason Tangle and Whisper should stand out or is it because they're new?

That's what Amy and/or Cream's dynamic with Blaze would be, that's not necessary.

Why would Cream be getting into a catfight? :joy:

Outside of Sonic and Amy, most of the game characters weren't that different to what was being seen in other media (games or Archie, but mostly comparable to Archie in this instance). 

So when are we getting a game about Cream's days as a First Mate?

Wait, she really is French?

That was referring to StC. StCO is not the same thing, so anything there does not apply to what the official printed comic did.

She's not a cis white straight male.

I get it, she isn't a white cis straight male because she is both not male and is French. It's very simple.

“Now”? Implying she wasn’t before? 🤣

What is "native" in this context? 🤔

Sorry to quote a post from months ago, but:

The question didn't say. Just some Fleetway things. Ian DID mention that he really wants to use the Metallix, and he has permission from Nigel Kitching to use them.

...I could actually see this happening now that we know Neo Metal is the big bad.

Wishful thinking, yes.

Yeah, I also hope so. A retooling/reinvention of the Metallix would be really awesome. They could even avoid the "one Metal Sonic" (without using the Mecha Sonic from Sonic 3 exactly, avoiding the "no classic character") mandate by using the Mecha/Silver Sonic in the tube in Final Egg in Sonic Adventure.

Spoiler

And i'm really curious about what is Metal Sonic's "ascension".

So, there's a new BumbleKast out, and it's HUGE, and filled with nothing but Q&A. Since I have a bit of a busy day today, could somebody please go there and note the most interesting things that Ian answered?

-Even Ian reckons the modern Chaotix are the only ones that exist based on all the material SEGA has said and shown. 

-Ray would be amended to be as tall as Sonic and Mighty to match Mania Plus if he appeared in the comics at any point now (like, presumably in a hypothetical classic  line)

-Sally and Nicole were totes going to go down the lesbian route.

-No immediate plans for the Babylon Rogues, no justice for Storm. Thinks they're interesting though.

-Villages haven't been named yet because none of them hold narrative importance.

You mean, like, had Archie Sonic continued it would’ve eventually been acknowledged in-universe?

Welll....

-Don't get pneumonia.... just don't do it.

-They address Silver's "language" in the relevant IDW Issue. In their minds 'crap' is simply not a swear. I don't follow this thread too closely but I believe that was a hotly debated topic, and some fun was had at Shadow and Silver's expense concerning chaos emeralds and their damned-able nature.

-For all plans concerning abandoned Archie plot-lines please refer to Ian's future best seller - Lost Hedgehog Tales. Release date: TBA - Indefinitely.

 

-Plans for QuakeWoman, and other Megaman comic threads if that series had continued were briefly discussed. The Megaman Soccer arc we never got.

-Ian mentions that there have been some character approval jittering around in IDW Sonic. Stresses that such unnamed characters are likely not barred from appearing all together, rather they were not approved for the specific storyline. I imagine Cream probably figures in there somewhere. He does believe that any living modern character is on the table.

-Apparently Team Dark was killed off in Worlds Unite because the Editor really wanted someone to die and Ian knew the reset button was just around the corner.

 

- (Long Marvel Movie credits scroll)

....Tangle's Village will return.

Naming the other locations just seems like needless fluff to them.

- He couldn't continue the Sonic Underground TV show even if he wanted to... but it they could they'd recast Robotnik as Jim Cummings. Nuff said.

For Sonic Underground as planned in Sonic Universe... please refer to Ian's future best seller - Lost Hedgeho---

- Mobius 25 Years Later. Cream is an awesome adventurer, Cheese is a light chao, King Shadow's causing troubles somewhere, somehow, and Rouge owns a chain of Casino Night Zones. Breezie would be envious. Amy takes the time stones and has awesome time traveling adventure (sadly no word on green Canary sidekicks 😥).

- King Nigel Acorn to (handheld) Nicole: "How are you my adopted daughter? You're next in line for the crown in case Sally cax it!"

- Ian does not intend for Sonic to come off as mean to Silver.

- Silver's time traveling will remain undefined until Sega defines it. God help us all.

- Archie Sonic is no longer canon. You're all free now.

- Interesting bit about Knuckles and spiritual themes that led to pairing him with Chip in Archie.

- Ian really likes the implications of Blaze's fate in Sonic '06. Iblis being sealed in her, and shoved into another dimension. Really wants to explore it.

- Origins of a Linkara cameo in Archie.

- Are Chaotix Classic/and/or Modern/Spicy Jalapeno/ or Ranch? Nothing new on that front. They acknowledge that Knuckles Chaotix is almost certainly non-canon these days, but with the more solid Classic/Modern divide being so new verdict still out.

- SA3 is after Shadow 2, and before Storybook 3. Mark your continuity timelines people!

-Ian has a momentary lapse in judgement and proclaims that Sonic 4 Ep. 2 was in fact good.

-Ian is not a harbor. Do not park your ships on his shore....

They will be towed.

Yee. 

Spark of Life was apparently ground work for it to develop to that.
