    Out of curiosity, why that year in particular?

    Not trying to start a thing with this but I believe they were referring to Trump getting elected in 2016. A lot of us assumed his "fans" weren't serious, but turns out they were...

    In terms of his Mary-Sue Chronicles thing, I just ask that Ken either gets off the toilet, or starts shitting. One or the other.

    Welp, I have to say, as much as I hate the man... this is pretty damning.

    Outside of this comic book panel, there have been absolutely 0 recorded instances of Sonic and Tails being on the biplane together. If would be one thing if it was just Sonic on the biplane, but both of them? That's just uncanny. Sonic is even blue and wearing gloves, a carbon copy of his appearance in the comic. Also note that both screenshots are rectangular in nature.

    Correct. Likewise, not about to pass comment on anything in particular but the belief at the time was that Trump was a joke pick being hyped up by memelords (I certainly knew a few people irl who thought they were "in" on the joke) who had no real legs as a candidate, but of course we know that wasn't the case, my point being that I think it's simply short-sighted to write off people siding with Ken as being "ironic", simply because we may be unable to comprehend why they may do so.

    I honestly think all he cares about at this point is IP trolling and retweeting politics.
    :objection: I was going to mention possibly predating the color biplane Mandela effect/hoax but apparently someone else did the colors :eng99:

    I'd like to say "At least it's just a Penders fan thinking this and not Penders himself", but he did Quote RT that tweet praising the comparison, so it's possible he thinks the same way himself.

    Oh, I thought it was something strictly Penders related, or something from some other fandom, like the usual references to those of Nintendo games, but I suppose it's all about Twitter, one way or another.

    “I suppose it's all about Twitter, one way or another“ Good god it is depressing how true that statement is.

    And it's not the first time I say it today, and had even to explain it then.

    And now Elon Musk wants to buy Twitter. It's about to be the wild west of nonsense if that happens.

    Anyway nope that's it done. Back to MyKnuckles.... hope his wife and kids are free from that burden

    Life.
    Hello, I'm KEN PENDERS, inventor of MY KNUCKLES.
    Thanks to your support, you've helped make THE LARA-SU CHRONICLES become one of the slowest-selling graphic novels in America. Over the last twelve years, you've helped TLSC create tens of jobs all around the world. Every issue is made with passion, here in my home state of [redacted], to ensure you get the most mature storytelling of your life.

    I've never written/penciled/inked/lettered/colored anything better in my life. What's better than a great graphic novel?

    Art is one of the most important things to your health and THE LARA-SU CHRONICLES is one of the most important things in your library.

    I tried those other "comics" and the storytelling did not match my needs, and it probably won't match yours. That's why I invented MY KNUCKLES. My patented subtleties adjust to my exact individual needs and help keep my ego supported and aligned.

    I personally guarantee THE LARA-SU CHRONICLES will be the most liberating read you'll ever own or your money back*.

    *No refunds.




    (I'm so sorry.)

    "My Knuckles" (Ken Penders show his menacing fists).

    Actually, Ken Penders also owns Streets Of Rage because Knuckles is just "Knuckle" in the japanese manuals and those games are named "Bare Knuckle" in that country. Am I right under Ken's logic? Sorry, he also owns Street Fighter and Barbie because they feature characters named Ken born in the USA, so they must be inspired in him and only he can own himself and...

    Uff, it's tiring to think like Penders, everything gets so far I can't where things end.

    (I should too, but I had a bit of vitriol to throw out and this was an easy and safe way to do so.)

    I'm sure everyone is just as lost as me, but I still find it absolutely mind-blowing that someone could claim to own the character Knuckles the Echidna, simply based on the fact that they introduced Great Grandma Knuckles, Chief Knuckles, Knuckles with Hair, and 45 3rd cousins. I could draw up an extended family tree for Mickey Mouse right now, but how on earth could I make any claim that I own or invented Mickey Mouse?

    I'm sure he is being intentionally dense somewhere in there. Or perhaps he doesn't even take himself seriously, because he keeps claiming to have ownership over things but he will rarely put his money where his mouth is.

    Don't the comics he wrote stories for have fine print saying the copyright is Sega's?

    Archie couldn't produce any legal documents signed by Penders saying anything he created was SEGAs, so he copyrighted the stuff he made for the comic, made being incredibly generous here instead of "putting a wig on Knuckles".

    Funny thing is, he wasn't the first one to make an echidna other than Knuckles appear: that was Mike Gallahar with Athiar in the Tails miniseries back in November 1995.

    Likewise in November 1995, Dr Zachary showed up in Fleetway for the first time.

    To be fair, Fleetway pretty much did everything the series would later do first, so that's just kind of a given...

    It would be interesting to hear how aware of the Fleetway comics the Archie writers were. I'm personally of the opinion that the Fleetway series was of a fairly consistent quality throughout most of its run, better than the worst of Archie, but not as good as its best, with the artwork definitely being its strongest asset. Whereas Archie started off quite poor in both art and story and improved over time (granted not on a curve without its ups and downs) and ultimately surpassed the quality of the Fleetway run. But I'm totally comfortable with people thinking differently.

    I will say, however, as someone who grew up in the USA and practically lived at a comic shop throughout the 90s and 00s - outside of a scant few, imported comics published in the UK were simply not available to us (I don't think distribution channels were in place). I never saw a Fleetway Sonic in my life until scans appeared on the Internet. So unless Sega was providing Archie with complimentary copies of the Fleetway comics for some reason, it wouldn't surprise me if any similarities were conceived independently.
