So anywho IDW had a kids Panel today and the plot of the next arc is that Sonic is infected by a device that is slowly turning him to metal everytime he runs.

So that's pretty unique. 

Say *what?*

Oh wow...I’m genuinely intrigued.

Apparently it's the other way round; he has to run to stop it.

That's actually a very interesting premise.  A real challenge for Sonic, almost taunting him with his own strength by preventing him from being anything other than fast, and pushing him to the brink of exhaustion.

Am I the only one who thinks this sounds like robotization? I mean, Sonic slowly turning to metal could be taken as being turned into a robot, especially with the hints of the Tinkerer from the released covers, I wonder if he's gonna plant a device on him or something.

The real kicker is if this would be a scheme devised my metal Sonic to physically take over Sonic's body. 

He could really take his obsession to the next level by litterally becoming Sonic. 

That actually sounds kinda interesting considering.

That reminds me of a novel (Sonic and the Tales of Deception) that came out recently, where Knuckles was infected by nanobots that were turning him into a robot and Sonic had to shrink to cure him or something.

So this is under the IDW kids branch, right? I wonder if they’ll be allowed to launch something more akin to their Godzilla and Ghostbusters comics for older audiences now?

Yeah...

Which one?

The one where Sonic got implanted with a chip that forced him to run constantly. I don't remember the episode very well so I'm not sure what the full explanation was but as I remember it, it wasn't that he couldn't stop or it'd explode or anything, he literally didn't have any control over himself.

Episode 24. Sonic gets in a fight with Eggman's robot of the episode, Lightning Bird, and a chip from inside it gets lodged in his ear. It activates and makes him go screwy so he can't stop running. It's not until he fights it again at the end of the episode that it gets dislodged and he's able to return to normal.

As for the tidbit for the comic, eh. It doesn't sound like a bad idea for a stand alone story, but having that be an "arc" doesn't sound particularly interesting.

Yeah I don't see it being a full arc, it could get boring eventually... but then again, this isn't much info, obviously it's not what the arc is about, we need more information, it's too early to say, but it looks unique and interesting as an idea.

That's about where I'm at. This sounds like an excuse to try an tell another story. And what could go wrong

I would've imagined it'd be a twoparter at best anyway, since we'd be coming off an arc pretty fresh already.

I wonder who will draw this issue.

Given the slight focus on body horror, perhaps Evan Stanley?

Maybe even Steven Butler making a coming?

Sounds like Sonic Team's game design philosophy
