IDW Megathread

  1. It is, it's a very odd choice. They currently seem to just be... counters? Opposites? Dunno the term, but Surge seems to be a Sonic-like that can tap into Tails's weaknesses, and Kit is a Tails-like that can tap into Sonic's weaknesses. Consider me interested. Especially since Trial by Fire and Imposter Syndrome are the two arcs building up to #50.

    I think that maybe the new characters will be dealing with literal Imposter Syndrome. They won't be able to see themselves as nothing more than cheap copies of the originals.

    The series has a history of characters not looking like one another being mistaken for one another.

    At least we have the hindsight of "Terios" looking a lot more like Sonic earlier in development, so it used to be a more acceptable mistake.

    Beware of spoilers :V
    In the last issue, Starline was examining Belle. Excited, he stated that her unique design/code will accelerate his own creations.

    I assumed he was talking about Kit and Surge there. We know he's got Tails fur, we know the pair suspended in the tubes are based somewhat on Sonic and Tails.

    Maybe I've read too much Spider-Man as a kid, but that's basically a clone story for me.

    Of course I don't believe SEGA would allow to clone Sonic in a promotional comic, but as Dek stated above, a Fennec is a type of fox, and Tenrec is Hedgehog's "cousin".

    So i believe the robot-like impostors are the closest thing that SEGA allows :V
     
  8. But who says they're robots/robotic lol? Tails's fur indicated to me that they're organic. :p

    So here is something to consider. Since we never see Starline get Sonic's DNA, (correct me if I am wrong) what if Surge is actually based on Amy? Next arc will feature her and the IDW crew. Perhaps Starline nabs her quill or something? Things to consider.

    Would make sense given that Surge is female…not that this seems to be adhering too strictly to realistic cloning. Oh god, what if Surge and Kit are just some poor delinquents Starline kidnapped off the streets, as Dr Gero did with Android 17 and 18 in DBZ?

    And now I'm hearing Cell's singing Mr. Sandman like in TFS parody :V

    But you guys may be on to something, surge somewhat resembles Amy. I still believe the clones are somewhat robotic, or at least bio-androids like in DBZ, because why else would Starline get so excited over duplicating Belle's code?
     
  12. To simulate emotions and living thought processes in something that otherwise wasn't born with them- robotic or not.

    I'm not ruling out that they're robots, I'm just personally leaning more towards organic creations- kinda like Shadow in a way.

    You might be right. Programming clones from robot code isn't something common in fiction I believe, but I can see Ian trying to work that angle.

    Actually, I think this might be Evan's gig primarily?
