IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

- Some character doesn't have a "gameplay" and are made for story reason. Vanilla is the best exemple of it in game and Breezie the Hedgehog Post-SGW, who were mostly story-driven and didn't have some kind of "gameplay"/"gimmick". The "theme" is mostly for the most important character, but a story doesn't contain only those. Especially in a comic-book, because it's a different media than a game.

...That just makes me realise that pretty much all the game characters designed for just story purposes are completely disposable. I don't think it's a 1-1 comparison to the comics.

That’s if GUN is still in this one given that it takes more after Forces. One reason why I can’t stand the Two Worlds thing being involved here because it murks up the whole setting.

I’m more curious as to how Ian will handled that part if we were to see a support cast like that.

He's already said.

It’s like, ya, now we are over here with GUN. Where are we again? Where over at this place, we don’t really need to worry what planet it’s on. 


 

They're one place one issue, and another place the next issue. How they get there doesn't really matter.

One thing I can see being done with new characters is to make them be a sort of support cast for certain game characters within their respective environments. One example could be within GUN where there would be extra characters that interact with Rouge, Shadow and Omega, which not only would help show more facets of these game characters as they interact with their support cast, but also gives the feel that they have their own world and don't always have to gravitate around the events in which Sonic is involved.

Though for something like this, the current IDW book would need a sister publication similar to how the Archie comic had the Universe comic book to supplement it and give space for side characters to shine.

So, like Relic and Garnet?

Yeah, that'd be good..

Yeah, remember Mini and Mum? The Mimic Ghosts? That sea captain dude from Forces? I wonder if Flynn is allowed to elaborate on those obscurities?

OH this is in reference in what he got away with before, because they never specified

Its pretty specified this go round. Though again, I got a funny feeling nothing said in that shadow comic is gonna end up counting for anything anyway.

If only this 2 world thing actually came up in universe...don't even care if people don't like it...it would've just avoided so many problems.

 

Maybe Blaze's world was the 2nd world all along...

 

Maybe they should've never revealed this tidbit at all, so it wouldn't matter as much as it can continue not to matter...

It didn't matter because it didn't need to matter. 

Unleashed could have just taken place in human parts of the world. Colors takes place in space, Generations takes place where time displaced versions of characters and stages just appear for no good reason. Lost world takes place in a completely other place.

Forces is the first time it has actually mattered in years, because it is a game where eggman though a text blurb takes over large sections of planet. In doing so that brings up " Where's GUN, and where's all the humans not just the animal people "  and the explanation being " Well he just took over sonic's world " and now that's a different thing. That makes things weird, now it calls into question previous games's settings espically when sonic world settings or places like angel island existed in the human world and its pretty clear that they were a single world. Not even to mention shadow, who's origin is a bit weirder now, ontop of his motivations as a character. Why is he invading other worlds threatening to kill people, help sure. But now him threatening to kill eggman in the comic is super duper weird because that's not even like, his jurisdiction.

Forces caused though plot and gameplay for the two worlds thing to matter ,  its also effecting the comic as well. If they had just mad a game where it didn't matter. Had they not said anything and kept making games where it didn't matter... no one would care

Employee #1: Okay, we need to go dumber. The fans are confused as fuck now. How do we make it worse?

Employee #2: I've got it. We'll reveal that the Boom universe takes place in Modern Sonic's past and somehow also in another dimension! Their past took place in another dimension!

Employee #1: Holy shit! You genius mother fucker! Somebody get that man a prrrrrrromotion!

Classic Sonic is the past in another dimension, Modern Sonic is the present in two planets at once, Sonic Boom Sonic is the future in another dimension and is three canons in itself

All Sonics are the same age though, it's been a really crazy year

Well, I must admit that I never really understood if in Sonic Advance 3, the world was separated à la Unleashed, or separated in some kind of "separate dimensions" (like shown in the first continuity). Because IIRC the manuel say something about being splited, but as it's done via Chaos Countrol it would seems to me a bit more logical if it was the second thing. For me it's the "separate dimension thing" because it seems more logical with what is shown (the level transition, the use of Chaos Control), but I never really found a reliable source on that.

That was my thought, honestly. The in-between level cutscenes, and "World Map" gave off the vibe of traveling between dimensions.

The real tragedy is that the Earth was blown apart by Eggman twice in the same year...by the same guy.

Was it Earth in Sonic Advance 3 though, or Sonic's world? 😜

And then there’s Archie Sonic, and all the assorted secondary canon and non-canon material.

Sonic's World, obviously. Though it's possible that Route 99 is indeed in the United Nation, depending on how much influence Eggman was able to have on the makeup of each Zone.

You think this might affect the comics?
