Nothing that hasn't been shown in the anime - including game material - can pop up in SX. That means no SX-Nack, no SX-Mighty, etc. etc.


This occurred to me the other day: what of Chocoloa Chao? Through his association with Cream and Cheese, he is unusable in StH, and because of his absence from the Sonic X anime, he is excluded from SX.

The ONLY solution is to give him his own series. It's only fair!

Hello!

Postby Ed Bellis » Fri Jul 28, 2006 10:17 pm

Hi! First-time poster here, long-time reader of the book (since issue #3, actually). I have to say I've ben pulled back into the fandom by you, Mr. Flynn; you are every bit the breath of fresh air this comic needed, and I have great faith you're going to do great things for Sonic. =)

Now, onto my question - it's kind of complicated, so I hope I phrase it right:

Anonymous seemed to imply in 164 that everything in TDS went according to plan - except that Sonic wasn't "eliminated." So here's my question: why didn't this event occur? Anonymous seemed to get his way through acute awareness of how others would react in given situations, so who behaved outside of their parameters (fun metaphor, given who Anonymous is =P) and screwed up the plan? Basically, what I want to know is why Anonymous expected Sonic to be eliminated, and what deviated from his plan to make this not occur.

Thanks so much for taking the time to do all this. You're amazingly dedicated to the fandom, and I know fans (myself included) appreciate it. Thanks again! =)

Maybe one day. From what I've seen of the game, I'm in no rush. While intimidating, they lack the character of the Egg Pawns, or even the SWAT Bots. Maybe there's something we haven't see yet.

No plans for that right now.

Yup - the same thing goes for G-Mel, which upsets me more since G-Mel has some serious potential. But it looks like they're joining the ranks of "new single-use characters."

Anonymous/A.D.A.M. didn't count on Sir Connery. Sir Connery de-powered Mogul before he was "supposed" to be. Additionally, Sonic & Co. performed beyond A.D.A.M.'s expectations.

And it's things like this that keep me at the helm. Thank you for the kind words, and you're certainly welcome!

I mean she could kick butt, what you replacing her with somethin' bigger or what becase Robotnik (eggman) no longer seems a threat now only adam is the boss now.

Okay. You've stated that Sonic never had any fellings for Mina other than her being a friend. Actually you said:

IanPotto wrote:
Sonic and Mina are friends and that's that. The Sonic-Sally/Mina confusion was entirely one-sided. Sonic grew in fondness to Mina as a friend, but nothing more.

I combined two postings , But anyway....

- In Issue 111, Sonic was talking about potential love interests, and he not only brought up Sally, but also Mina.

- In HHH, Sonic may have said he loved Sally, but he never said that he didn't love Mina. IMO, he was just very happy that Sally was okay, and not choosing Sally and not Mina.

- In 154, When Mina says that she doesen't love Sonic, Sonic leaves the room loking very sad.

- Also in 154, Sonic asks Mina for a date.

There are likely a few more, but I won't waste any more of your time rambling on.

So, Are these just "meandering thoughts", or something more? I'm not starting an arguement, Just stating a point. Thank you very much for your time, and sorry if it sounds like I'm argueing with you :(

I'll try to go into more detail with the up-coming Script Bits!, but the quick answer is she wasn't very popular. As we compiled a list of characters that should/could/ought to be killed off she came very close to the top. I had a few ideas for her, but ultimately she served more of a purpose destroyed than maintained.

NackTheWeasel wrote:Sonic x Mina


There is some very weak evidence towards the pairing. Sonic did show passing interest, but half of that could be chalked up to him enjoying her singing voice. But her obvious displays of affection ("The Kiss") were rejected and "Heart Held Hostage" closed the book on the triangle.

Maybe there was a tenuous chance of Sonic and Mina truly being a couple in the past, but we've long since distanced ourselves from that direction.

TDS was the list - or at least the end result.

Are you saying that Sonic x Mina can't happen because it's your opinion from reading the comic, or because Karl said it was over when he left?

But okay, I get the bottom line:

Sonic x Mina= NO MORE, and according to me, that's NO GOOD :cry:

True Sonic and Mina would make a cute couple but in the end it's Sonic and Sally all the way.

I was just going over some of the earlier issues and chuckling over the nicknames Dr. Robotnik Prime's SWATbots would address him as. An example from Sonic #39, "Your evening apéritif, Guru of Gravity!" Do you have any plans of returning these fun nicknames to the comic? Or perhaps creating your own?

I just remembered my question:

I know you don't like to differentiate from Robotnik Prime and RoboRobotnik, but is there a Robo Snively? Will we eer see any references to one even in like the backgroun simlar to the various Tails' in The Choosen One story

Oh and also, I noticed it's something big when I saw Turbo Tails and Super Sonic and Shadow on the 170 cover, does this build up to 175(If so it must be aa looong story) or is this just a side note on the way to 175?

Have you heard anything about Ken Penders concept art of his Sonic movie that he showed off to someone at some comic even a little bit ago? Also what are your thoguhts on the changed character designs he shows for Sonic's parents, Uncle Chuck, Julie-Su, Knuckles, and Sally?

Here is the image, courtesy of Adamis from FUS:

Are the chances of us seing any of the Archie Sonic characters (Sally, Nagus, Bunnie, etc) in a game better or worse now than before SOnic Adventure came out?
