    Well, I know nothing about Archie comics but in the 90's I also conceived a transformation named Ultra Sonic, which probably has nothing to do with archie's since I had gameplay mechanics in mind and a background for it consistent with the lore of the games (and still have, maybe one day I'll implement it somewhere).

    Same. I conceived my version as requiring the Master Emerald itself, and thus being neon green.

    And the idea itself makes sense, since sonic, supersonic, hypersonic, and ultrasonic are all actual words. I almost wonder if that's why Sega declared Hyper forms non-canon: they didn't wanna just pile on shit-tons of forms like Super Saiyan did.

    Mine uses a different set of jewels and has elemental shields as a requirement and influence, it's "ultra" because it needs you to get one step beyond but also goes one step beyond Super. I conceived this because Super didn't have a double-jump skill while Hyper had the ultimate one, so I wanted an alternative or middle ground.

    NEXT DAY EDIT: Forgot to clarify that having a shield wasn't a requirement in my 90's concept; the "unshielded" variant was assigned to the basic blue shield instead when I refined the old idea in recent years.

    You gave your Ultra Sonic concept much more thought than Archie ever gave theirs :V

    Guys, if someone pays him 10k for Scourge, and then create a character, a clone of Scourge - let's call him "Urgexsco"...

    Then, Urgexsco is a totally new character, and it belongs to the creator, right?

    Technically, that would depend on the terms of the contract - the reason Ken was allowed to take the rights for his characters/stories was because Archie couldn't produce an original contract that he signed, meaning all the copyrights defaulted to him. But also could you imagine.

    I suppose Kenders would feature a paragraph, that derivatives of the characters belong to him, if created.

    Still, it would be hilarious if somebody bought the rights, created clones and got the rights to them.

    Art...always art...
    Quick, delete the paper trail before he responds with such a thing! We’ll have cock rings for our own original character, Blourge (he’s definitely not just Scourge but turned blue by the Slave Beryl)!

    And you don't know even half the story. ;)
    But this thread is for Penders, let's not prevent him from getting the attention he so much wants and deserves. :ruby:
