Scourge the Hedgehog can't be used by either party from what I read on the Pender's boards. Not just by Ian but Ken himself. Since Scourge was originally Evil/Anti-Sonic Ian can't use him. However, since Scourge is a revamped version of Evil Sonic and thus a new character of his own, Ken can't use him either.

Personally, I find this little scribble and sprawl a bit perturbing and otherwise idiotic. Really, the only key character affected by this is Julie-Su. Dr. Finitevous is kind of iffy. I haven't kept up with the comics as of late but when I last checked, he disappeared. Technically though, Doc Finitevous was based off the idea of a similar looking Fleetway character or so I've heard.

Its really sad to see when people decide to pull this shit. Hopefully, there will be some kind of agreement Archie and Ken can make before this goes to court. Then again, Ken seems like a really tightwad dick from what I've read of what he says so who knows how it would go.

I think I'm missing something here. Why exactly did he do this? Sounds like Archie pissed in his Cherrio's or somethin'.

"Oh dang, oh nuts. The Archie Sonic comic was the only sure thing I had left, and they fired me! I'm hosed! If only there was some way I could wring money out of them..."

There is one element where I think Ken have a very valid, legitimate claim...and it's in how the Archives stories are being handled in terms of republishing.

Think of comics almost like you consider more widespread artistic works such as movies or music. The artist of said work gets royalties every time that work is played...anywhere.

Sonic Archives pretty much republishes his works, characters, etc. Unless there is a contract somewhere that explicitly states the work is only Archie's and he is to get no residuals from future reselling...I would think he's supposed to get SOMETHING for that Archives series.

If he isn't...I'm not sure I can blame the guy for this.

I believed they fired him and hes now throwing a tantrum 5 years after his firing. Now he is just being a dick to the fans of the comic because he wants "payback" on his old bosses.

This is the most hilarious case of "original character do not steal" I've ever seen

I've heard Ken Penders, in person, say Sega owns everything he creates.

Pender's run on the comic was pretty much a soap opera.

Julie-Su, A-classed character. Either Knux goes emo widower ala Cloud Strife, or comic is canceled because of this one.
Geoffrey St. John, Hershey, C-classed characters. Labeled M.I.A. briefly, Sonic bitches, gets over it by end of issue. SOLVED
Rob O' the Hedge, D-classed character. Hmm... cousin to a B-classed character (Amy). Looks like Bowhunter Sonic got a bleach-job and a Jedi hood. It can probably do without ever hearing from him again. SOLVED
Lien-Da, the Dark Legion There goes Eggy's Army. Comic canceled.
Topic Title says it all. I hereby declare a state of absolute WTF?

I'm now curious as to whether my echidnaplasti was a far enough step to escape humanity.

I don't even like the Archie comics, but I'll agree that this guy does sound like a huge douche and what he's doing is retarded.

I was JUST about to post this when I realized there was already a topic.

But I was going to call it:

KEN PENDERS: THE BANE OF ALL SONIC FANS.

So, Trunks, knowing you work on Archie Sonic, I ask: Any insight you can offer? Or has it already been said amidst our bitching?
