From a more technical stand-point, that'd probably wreck the point of his character and he'd need to find a new point of development and occupation to focus on. It's something that every Sonic character, aside from Cream, has. Silver's the guy from the future. That's his thing. That's his gimmick. It's an unfortunate one to have since time-travel is bullshit but that's what he is. Without it, he'd need to find a new "thing".

What doesn't she have now?

...Oh?

I mean, I suppose it is true that she is arguably more balanced and down to earth than most characters barring, like, Tails. But another issue there is that the games never really did much with her proper; from what I've read/heard, only Sonic Battle puts explicit focus on her as a character and lightly deconstructs her combat mentality.  Otherwise, she's mainly been a supporting character, almost always with Amy and a few times Blaze.

Again, I am of the opinion that Sonic X and Archie did more with her on a wider scale than the games did. Oh and I guess maybe STCO but I didn't get very far into STC itself to remotely approach knowing and even then, that is apparently so outside of what Cream is supposed to be anyway.

Also, unlike characters like Big, Vector, or some of the Zeti, Cream actually fit in with the standard [Classic] Sonic game design/formula, so she's not really a niche or more accurately bizarre character either.

I'm sure there's still other options for stories with her, but that would likely require simpler, more filler-level stories. Also, pairing her with characters she'd have stronger contrast and/or conflict with(ex. Knuckles, Sticks, Zavok), with her interactions with Amy being a little more expanded beyond the minor comedy.

Well if Sega got drunk and decided to give characters development and arc, Cream could be painted as a defender to all the little creatures. Chao, Small animals, Flickies, Wisps. She could actually learn from Sonic or Amy how to be a real hero or something like that. You know, how Tails used to be painted as weak and dependent on Sonic. But unlike him, she didn't got two own spin-offs and Super form year after creation.

And if we're talking small stories, then what she needs? Eggman is a big meanie, she will fight him. It's little to go on, but good enough for Tangle. Or IDK, that spikey blue guy.

Or/and here's a really weird ass idea I thought of just now-- have her hang with Tails, the character she is something of a loose distaff to and maybe use that to draw out some differences.

Oh and also, maybe give her a minor antagonist to deal with in a story or two. Something like Bokkun or that snooty rabbit girl with the Dark Chao

Here's a crazy thought:

Outside of our current pool of artists, which artist would you like to come work on pencilling the IDW Sonic comics? Or as a cover artist, or for colouring?

Personally, I'd love to see @Drawloverlala come draw an issue of the series. And, as a crazier hope, for Yuji Uekawa to create a cover for the series, maybe for a milestone issue. But I don't know if he's aware of IDW Sonic, even if it's endorsed by Sonic Team...

I think my answer for a cover would be Spaz, if he's available.

I also hope so, because I think she would suit well the universe, and could be a fun addition to the comic-book. And I'm for reuse of character of other canons if they introduce them well.

( What would be funny would be if she lived in a remote location and didn't even knew about Eggman conquering the world, while still having her paranoia xD )

I guess that would, especially given the implication that he's part of the reason she's like that in the first place.

I think Sticks will appear, as Flynn basically already confirmed it. He said he couldn't say when because it would be "spoilerific." I'm certainly looking forward to her debut and I hope it's soon.

Was this on Bumblekast?

Cause otherwise, the only other statement I know of also included Mighty and Ray.

As much as I don't like Boom, I won't mind too much if we see Sticks. I'd be kinda curious about how they'd handle a main universe version of her since I imagine she'll be at least a little bit different. But it'll feel like a huge bummer if the only character from a Sonic cartoon that got to be in the comics is one from like 2014 and from the show I like the least (that isn't Underground).

It'll be funny if Flynn was actually hinting at like Boom-set backup stories or something though. I think they wanted to do something like that before the last book got cancelled so it'd kinda make sense. Problem is that Boom is...well, it was already on it's last legs then, and now it's dead, so.

Yeah. I didn't listen to it, so I am going by word of mouth. 

Anyone think we will see the Rogues in year one? Big? Marine? Maybe Tikal or Chaos?

IIRC, Flynn said that year one wasn't the first year of comic-book, but the first 12 volumes. Meaning that everything that's still in year one would be Battle for Angel Island. So I'm not really sure.

Babylon Rogues are definitely not showing up any time this year. Marine is also unlikely.

Big, Chaos, and Tikal though? Wait and see.

Really hope not personally. Not fond of her character at all, Flynn written or not. The roots of the character just don't appeal to me personally.

Plus is a terrible, one note character in a controversial at best TV show and an atrocious and abandoned reboot/subseries that Sega was trying to bury before the first game even came out.

 

 

Seems a bit incongruous for her to show up after the justifications Sega was given by others for the Archie fallout.
