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.

Justifying her already existing personality...

Your not suppose to justify paranoia...I'd give ya such a lecture with only one sentence.

At least reveal how she became so paranoid. I mean if she grew up most of her life in the wild, how did she learn about the government and become so distrusting in them...

TBH, it can be used just as a quirk, while she can have other stuff for her. I feel that going to much into the "let's try to explain her paranoia" would add too much layer on something that was just supposed to be a quirk, and would remind a bit of the Charmy thing in pre-SGW. There is several way of fleshing her out, basically just by taking and using the other aspect of her (being a wild person, being simply distrustfull - but about everything, at least everything she doesn't know - working on her relationships with other characters, etc).

I'd lay off the hyperbole about the government and so on to start with.  She lives in the middle of nowhere, we can say that she chooses to live in the middle of nowhere as she's always been mistrustful of the wider world despite knowing absolutely nothing about it - and the more she actually ends up learning about the wider world, the more she finds reason to be mistrustful of it; but mad, insane reasons.

They gave intros for all the other new characters...why would it be different for her? The bad thing they do is then grouping all the characters together as if it means something.

To be fair, in Heroes and to some extent 06, it did.

All this, plus at least explain how Sonic and Co. found her in the first place. Half the time, she's just there. 

We know that she was supposed to have been found and somewhat civilized by Amy at some point.

Games built around them when they honestly didn't need to be...

You know when it did matter...SA2. The Hero story, Dark Story thing...

Games like Heroes could have a whole single campaign since it's such a simple story...

While Nex Gen didn't need nearly the amount of characters it did have for the stupid team thing...

I meant in terms of story, ghostbrain

They never explained why Sonic has his personality, why Eggman is evil, so why would they explain why Sticks has paranoia? I thought it was explained, she always lived alone in the jungle, which resulted in her current personality, isn't this true? As for introduction, yeah I agree, she needs one. But don't change her Ian, please, she's so perfect and adorable as she is.💓

Honestly, it's a matte of changing her personality so much as adjusting her portrayal to fit better with the stories being told, which shouldn't be that hard considering some episodes of Boom proper did that already.

She's already not far off what the comic was seemingly trying to do with Tangle(in practice), so there shouldn't be an issue. The only real concern is ironically that Mr. Flynn himself reigns her in from how he and/or the other Archie writers previously portrayed her in the comics.
