IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

Don't like this comic book version of Amy she's mostly calling out orders and its less interesting to what she did in Sonic X. Her title of her "Piko Hammer Hero"/ "Resistance core staff" feels very bear bones in creativity and tells little about her.

I don't care that much for it in this part 1 either, but I imagine it's being done in the name of debatably blanket fanservice ala Neo Metal.

 

Issue 2 was great, though.

I mean what more do you want a full bio. They assume you know the main cast.  I'm sure Amy will eventually do more but at the moment they are still developing the start . This is not x or achier it's making it own universe while using the games more as a base

A title isn't a bio and anything would be better than them saying that she is a girl with a hammer or a advance grunt, why not something like "compassionate warrior / high commander" or "Sonic chaser / battle planner" base her title off something she's done before. Both IDW and Sonic X use the games as a base set in a different universe but she didn't feel so generic in X like the way IDW makes her out to be.

Well, as long as he's got an exclusive link to the Master Emerald, Metal can probably keep it up as long as he wants. But unlike Mecha, even if he does run out of juice, he's fast enough to dash back to it for a recharge before Sonic can retaliate. (Especially since Metal's copied his data already)

All the more reason for Knuckles to destroy that throne-thingy and cut him off ASAP.

Was Neo Metal supposed to be that big next to Sonic?

Nah he's supposed to be a little bit taller than that, Remember Neo's Face is roughly the same size as Metal's face. Now compare the render of Metal on the SH story select screen to Shadow and you'll see that his face is tiny in that picture implying he's not as close to the screen as the other characters, other evidence of him being massive is the fact he shrinks considerably when he turns back into regular Metal in the final scene (look how far he drags his arms in as he returns to normal). The Neo Metal in IDW is mostly based on a fan render of him that got some of the scale and details wrong. Post Reboot Archie Neo was actually closer to the design from Heroes.

Freedom Fighters and other old characters.

Ew. Personal opinions, but... no to both of those, for me.

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind those characters, but we don't need two Sonics together or the FFs taking all the screentime again.

Well we can agree to disagree about the FFs. I’m pretty sure they’ll make a Classic Sonic series and if they do bring in the FFs, they’ll be Classic-locked.

What are your hopes for the year 2 era ?? 

- Them digging out some obscure/underused stuff of the Adventure/Modern era and doing interesting things with it. There are a lot of things that could be great, especially in spinoff. (for me even the Deadly Six could become pretty cool if used correctly). I especially would love Metal Knuckles of Sonic Advance appearing at one moment xD

- A second comic-book or some mini-series.

- A non-Eggman villain.

- When Eggman come back, him starting to build a more organic "empire" (with other character in it like it was in Archie) or at the extreme contrary be more like his X/Anniversary Comic self. For the first possibility, it would be interesting if it was because of a reflection with how the resistance worked, and him seeing the advantages of having a "cohesive" team. For the second, it's because I'm really liking more and more how Eggman was in X. It would be a nice change after the more "evil" ArchieSonic Eggman. (Maybe the two aren't totally incompatible, though, with the "empire" being more of a big "Team Eggman" than a real force)

- The human world appearing, especially if at least one of the mobian have something to say about GUN's inaction in Forces. I would especially love it if they play with the difference between how works Earth and how works the Animal World.

- IDW getting the rights of ArchieSonic repriting/material (yeah, I know, this one is pretty uncertain, but eh, maybe Archie will see it as some easy cash to spend on their new season of Riverdale ? :'D), and maybe using some of the best stuff one day (I'm not asking of IDWSonic to become ArchieSonic, though, it's just that some stuff could be nice to reuse, LIKE MAH BOI ECLIPSE)

( I would also said "the Freedom Fighter or other DiC characters as secondary characters", but the Y2 is already planned without "new" characters, so if they'll appear it'll be later. But I would still love them as secondary characters that appear once in a while, especially as they could be used to flesh out a bit Sonic's World. )

I'd love to see Ian expand and recreate with the toys already in his playpen. Losing Tikal again after so long was like a gut punch. He's really good at finding great spots for underutilized characters, so if we arn't going to be getting any "new" characters in year 2, then I would hope that he has interesting and fresh spins on the characters we already have.

It may be too soon to re-tread Tikal and Gmel (I would welcome them with open arms tho) but there are still plenty of other characters that can step up and fill in important bit roles. Erazor Djinn and Sharah could be a fun distraction for a bit. Lumina and Void could too. The B Rouges are perpetually underutilized and then there is the whole Nega issue... there is a lot you could play with over the next year that would probably skirt the "new character" dodge.

If Eggman is made like his Anniversary comic version, a new villain that’s like the old Eggman would be perfect. Or maybe just have Nega do that.

A non boring and generic Amy Rose, where they add more to her character and not just subtract her affection for Sonic away then act like they completely improved her character.

They improved her character by giving her a purpose other than chasing Sonic. She's the real head of the Resistance, capable of holding her own in a fight, working with others, and still having a professional relationship with Sonic without her one-sided affections jeopardizing the mission. Not to mention the way she and Sonic tease/fluster each other in Issue 2 was a million times more endearing than having her scream his name and throw a violent tantrum when he doesn't take the bait.

A crush != a personality.

I don't know why Amy gets all this suddenly when she has less affection for Sonic but she can already fight on her own, work with others and stuff when she was actively thinking about Sonic and there was no need to keep repeating about how mature or grown up she was. Sonic Heroes had much better teasing and flustering than this book that thinks subtracting from one's personality without adding anything in return somehow makes her better. When has Amy's affection ever jeopardize the mission?

I would like to see Amy be Amy and not a poor mans pink Sonic.

You and I must have played two different games because Amy in Heroes was 90% annoying to me. Like the girl made Cream nervous when she questioned if Sonic actually liked her not to mention how irritated Sonic was when she found him in the city boss fight. And the ending he was like "I'm off" as soon as Amy chased after him. Like Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 are way, way better examples than Heroes.

Also I'm sorry but I've been lurking on this board for ages and if I didn't know any better I'd swear you were just trolling around via using your enjoyment of Amy to rile people up. Like I've got no beef with talking about Amy and she's O.K. to me but the way you do it is boarding on over the top.

I can understand not wanting two Sonic’s, but why are we still insisting that the FF took all the screentime when that isn’t true? Especially when it came to post-reboot Archie—it’s no different than having Tangle and Whisper around here in IDW.
