Poor Cream. :(

 

First she's not in Forces, then she's shafted in TSR, then she gets a minor role in the comics and now THIS? Man Cream's getting shafted hard. She wasn't playable in Tokyo 2020 either though she at least getting a small role. I hope she gets some real love later, she's one of my favorites.

Spoiler

I know it might be inappropriate here but the Taiream shipper in me is loving what seems to be Tails' reaction to Cream getting infected. It's like Tails witnessed her get infected right in front of him and knows he's helpless to do anything for her, so he just snapped and lashed out in fury at those that did this to his Cream. Jumping into the fray himself and attacking head on with such ferocity isn't something he'd do out of the blue. I see this as him going berserk in retaliation for what they did to Cream. To me, that look of pure unadulterated rage in his face is that of someone who was forced to watch his foes effectively kill the girl he loves, like he's got nothing left to lose and is giving it all he's got to make those who took her pay. All it's missing is Berserker Tears.

Even with the shipping goggles off and cheesy thoughts aside though, he'd probably react like that to any of his friends being infected. It's nice to see Tails manning up and attacking his foes head on, being a brave hero and fierce fighter in his own right.

Honestly, this is probably one of the more meaningful uses of her since...Battle?

Like, there's X and Archie New252, but honestly, this arc, while a bit miniscule in places, has given her the most thorough focus and story relevance.

So I know there’s a small chance of this happening but

maybe they stumble on to the cure and Cream is the first recovery patient. Because there’s no way they would put Cream through watching her two best friends and mother turn into zombots only to become one herself.


 

 

Right?

Aside of the obvious feeling sad for

what happens in the cover of issue 27,

I was looking at the several preview covers of the next issues on a random website, and I accidentally found this:

Honestly, I think they might be going into darker territory with that--as in the Zor's art kind.

This blaming Sonic for decisions all the other characters would have made anyway (especially when the Chaotix sat around and decided not to do anything and put it on Sonic in the first place) is getting tiring. We all know nothing is going to change by the end of this storyline so bringing it up seems so pointless.

Actually, I was wondering why Espio of all people fine in the first place.

Damn, even Espio is mad at Sonic.

I think this was more obvious than Shadow honestly.

Hasn't Shadow been the only other person to blame Sonic for anything?

Vector did it too right when their city fell and Sonic was helping them out. I don't recall the issue number offhand, but it was at the beginning of the outbreak.

edit: looked it up, issue 17. It's probably less directly blaming Sonic, but Vector does say "Next time Eggman loses his memory I'm throwing him in a cell." I honestly had a bit too much of a kneejerk reaction to this (I assume Espio's just venting because he lost his team) because it felt like a pointless internal conflict and while Ian usually has a reason when he does things like this, this just isn't something I see sticking and doesn't make a lot of sense to put the blame on Sonic when it feels like the results would have been the same.

It was a single text-bubble, so I honestly forgot he even said anything about it.

He wasn't doing so aggressively. It seemed like a throw-away line that only exists to sorta kinda set-up this continuing in Espio's reaction.

I went back and checked and Espio did say he was for punishing Mr. Tinker but Sonic defused that basically instantly.

I imagine he's kicking himself for that now and I think that + him lashing out makes sense.

Even if it's debatable about how accountable Sonic is in all of this you gotta remember that this is a pretty intense situation and feelings are driving a lot of the arguments. This'll probably all be wrapped up in a more civil discussion later where Sonic's decision is ultimately treated as an understandable one/the blame is split more evenly. 

I get wishing this debate was never brought up since nothing will be seriously done about it but I like seeing Sonic with a bit of internal conflict and distress going on so it has it's up sides.

It was one thing when it was Shadow calling out Sonic, since he's kinda meant to be his foil and opposite. Now we have his own allies calling Sonic out too? Unless this leads to some type of rift forming between Sonic and his friends, which I highly doubt will happen, I don't see a point either.  It feels like Lost World when the game was calling out Sonic for all of his mistakes, but never actually letting him learn from them.

So what's going to be the fall out from this arc? They're obviously not going to kill Eggman, so that's out. Sonic letting him go after all of this would be the absolute height of stupidity. Eggman could slip away on his own, but then what is the lesson that Sonic learns?  "Hey kids, never show mercy to your enemies otherwise it will bite you in the ass" that doesn't feel like a child-friendly message. 

 

I don't want to say this arc is a letdown, because I DO find this pretty interesting. But I can't help but wonder just how ambitious is flynn trying to be and if he is even allowed to get away with it.

I don't really mind seeing Sonic being challenged and pushed to his limits, it's actually what's made this arc fun for me since I thought the first year of the comic was boring. These are fairly realistic reactions, I admit. It just feels like piling on and I'm not seeing what it's doing for Sonic other than giving him a chance to yell back at other characters about how he's ultimately in the right.
