sonic comic

You know, I think it’s kinda funny when people say that Archie Comics’ portrayal of Dr. Eggman is “too dark”, considering the sorts of things he’s done in the games all these years.

Such as when he burned down an entire jungle for no apparent reason:


Or when he burned an entire city to the ground with a giant demonic Metal Sonic:


(a hypothetical scenario, but my point still stands)

Then there was that time he planned to utterly demolish a definitely populated city with a god-like monster just so he could build a monument to himself in its place. (blowing up the city with a big missile was Plan B.)


Don’t forget that he blew up half of the f***ing moon simply as a demonstration of power!:


He also shot a big ol’ f***-off laser into the Earth with the intent of fracturing the planet to unleash a horrific eldritch-being!:


Sometime afterwards, he conquered an entire alien race to be used as a fuel source:


While we’re on the subject, let’s talk about “organic batteries”, something that has been in use by our good doctor since his very first appearance:


Sure, from the right distance it seems silly and fairly inoffensive for a cartoon villain, but Eggman is literally using living animals as batteries! That’s pretty damn creepy!

And need I remind you that this is the same guy who litters all of his bases with things like giant buzz saws and flamethrowers with the clear intent of horrifically maiming and killing anyone who trespasses!:


And that’s when he’s not being particularly imaginative!

And then there’s whatever the hell this is all about:


So you can understand my amusement when I hear someone say that something like this:


is “too dark” and “out of character”.

You see, it is entirely possible to have a character that is both affable on the surface while also having a warm gooey center of horrific insanity! He doesn’t need to be just one or the other at all times.

Well, that’s all I have to say about that. I’m not even sure this is a topic of discussion anymore (I’m not terribly active within the fanbase). But yeah. :p

This was a small topic that came up yesterday or so, and I want to hear your thoughts: what do you think is a good way to present homosexuality and such in Sonic, specifically the comics?

To not make it the defining trait of a character at all.

A big mistake a lot of writers make when introducing a LGBT character in fictional works in general is to make the character revolve around their sexuality. They also enforce gay stereotypes, making it next to impossible to take the character seriously or see it as anything more than an annoyance.

Great homosexual characters shouldn’t be subject to the sin of queerbaiting i.e Hinting at a homosexual relationship and/or establishing it but nothing being made of it further in order to show how “progressive” the writers and network are with miniscule effort. They should be just as ordinary as everyone else too. Being homosexual does not make you exceptional or an alien, it’s just a normal, ordinary thing. So I fail to see why it should be an absolutely defining trait of a character or the main focus of arcs concerning them.

And it annoys me when fans seem to expect a gay character to express their gayness every waking hour. It’s something that dogged J K Rowling when she outed Dumbledore as gay.

Rejected Poké Balls in Super Smash Bros, Vol. 1

Update: Click here to see Volume 2!

There could be so many of these, and it was really difficult for me to choose which Pokémon to include! I’d love to hear your suggestions for rejected Poké Ball Pokémon in Smash - if you have any ideas, send them my way, as I could definitely do another volume!

Yes I do show my Sonic Love out in the real world….but there’s always that douche who has to keep reminding the Sonic fan that Sonic is not as popular as he used to be, yes I know that, but It’s just sad that he’s not treated as the hero he really is 。:゜(;´∩`;)゜:。

As always I’ll try harder in the next comic (;*△*;)
