Ask Ian for OCT'08 - On Moebius, Iain asks You!

The Rules wrote:"Ask Ian" Rules

(1) I'll Post Answers Once a Week

I'll be taking questions from Sunday to Saturday each week. Saturday 11:59PM is the cut-off for new questions, and new answers will be posted the following Sunday. Sometimes I get busy and can't post answers exactly on Sunday. In those cases, just be patient - I'll answer soon!

(2) Five Questions Each

You get five questions per week. You don't have to ask five, and it doesn't have to be all at once. And none of that tricky "sub-question" stuff that's popped up. If you put some kind of variant on there, I'll count it as another question to be fair to everyone else. Play fair!

(3) Why Not Everything is Answered

I'll be picking the questions I think will benefit everyone reading, so don't be heart broken if I skip over yours. I'm not playing favorites. Also, there's some questions I simply can't answer for behind-the-scenes reasons. In rare occasions, I can't even say that I can't answer! If your question doesn't get answered, it's best to save it for later or move on to something else.

(4) Let Me Do the Answering

I want this feature to be all about official information, and there's a very select few folks here who count as official. Unless you have a link to a forum post of mine or the exact issue and page numbers, your answer isn't going to be "accurate." So save yourself the hassle and let me handle it.

(5) Where'd My Post Go?

As I said, I want this to be info-rich. There's a whole forum for discussion. So if I feel like your post is distracting from the thread's purpose, it's gone. So keep things neat and tidy for everyone else, okay?

Yeah, so, we still have three days of September left. Tough noogies! New Ask Ian thread is GO!

In issue #134, Sonic asks Bunnie where Antoine got the scar. She responds "Only Quack knows where he got it. ...". We later find out in issue #156 that it's actually Evil Antoine and Sonic says "When no one-- not even Bunnie-- could explain how you got that scar! ..."
Was there going to be some story where Dr. Quack was actually an Anti version, or was that just something that popped up or slipped through the cracks?

1. Why arn't the FF using Ant's knowledge of moebius to thier advantage?

2. Was it that a miscoloring for the SS's outfits in 192?

3. Does Eggman still have his Satam "red and black" eyes behind those glasses?

4. are the any other couples in the SS beside Scourge and
Fiona? I seem to rember Patch hitting on Alicia a while back...

Since Moebius is located in the "Antiverse", can it be assumed that they have a version of the Chaos Emeralds? If so, what would you personally name those Emeralds? (And don't say Anti-Emeralds, darn you. >.>)

Without giving to much information away, will issue #200 feature something surprising happening (like #175) or a more simple/normal story?

Is the original Sonic miniseries considered canon at all?

1. Without giving too much away, is Silver set to become a recurring character in STH? Or is he only going to appear in 'Sonic Universe'?

2. Will Miles be featuring more in the future after #195?

1.In your story you had Hope commenting on how Sir Charles said she was doing a great job, and later said in the original script that he was present to watch her progress. Does this mean he had been mentoring her prior to her leaving?

2. Since Mammoth Mogul gave Mina and Mighty their powers did he also give the fearsome foursome their powers?

3. Why did the Destructix simply back off after Sonic destroyed the weapon, they had him outnumbered and outmatched, it seems odd.

4. Are the city states that make up the United Fedration all located in different land masses around the planet or are they within the same broad region like the city states of Ancient Greece only farther apart?

This may have already been asked in the past, but I'm pretty new to the boards here, so forgive me if it has. What kind of creative freedom do you have? Does Sega ever step in and shoot down story ideas? Do they have any control over the story?

1. With Rob O' Hedge appearing in # 195 will Mari-An also appear as well in the story? Or is she long gone along with Rob's kid? In other words, will not be shown?

2. At the end of "Hedgehog Havoc" will we be seeing Scourgie get the punishment he deserves or will it be his last appearance ever in the comic? *sniff* I love dat hedgie.

3. Will we ever see Dr. F again? He was such a good villain so will we be seeing him in upcoming issues as we're on the road to # 200?

4. Is poor Locke officially gone like Tommy Turtle?

5. What made you decide to use Miles as the master-mind of the whole operation: "Dethrone Scourgie" plan? Tee-hee that was a good evil plan name. I just luv Miles and that little grin of his.

ok, I think I the only real question is the obligatory fave character question so...

Is there any chance that Sonia (as in Sonic's sister from the Underground universe) might appear in Sonic Universe?

If/when Omega shows up, will he be calling anyone "meatbags" like in Sonic Chronicles? I love how he does that. =P
