Honestly, if the Penders lawsuit was what gave us the rebooted stretch of Archie... I'd call that some kind of win? It let the comic drop and rewrite so much baggage from its long and sometimes batshit history, and I loved the version of Sonic's world they used that opportunity to craft and flesh out. I'm not sure how much of Archie Sonic I ever would've read had 252's relatively clean slate not given me an excuse to binge-read the absolute hell out of the Shattered World arc (and accompanying Universe issues). Plus, as much as the eventual cancelation stung, IDW's given us some fun original characters with its own run.
