Story One[]

Sonic Jump

One sunny morning in the Green Hill Zone, Doctor Eggman) turned up and began snatching several Mobini from their natural environment, and cramming them all in a cage. As the Doctor takes off in his Egg Mobile with the cage, Sonic the Hedgehog arrived on the scene, commenting that the Doctor really needed to find a new hobby other than capturing his animal friends yet again. Noticing no sign of Tails or the Tornado in sight, Eggman takes advantage of the situation by escaping skyward. However, Sonic simply chased after by using the floating platforms of the zone. Leaving the cage of helpless animals on a higher up ledge, Eggman took it upon himself to knock Sonic out of the sky: putting up a shield around his Egg Mobile, Eggman attempted to ram Sonic head on, as the blue hedgehog easily dodged every blow. Sonic was bound to run out of platforms eventually as Eggman smashed them all up in his rampage, but not before his shield finally broke down from the multiple impacts, allowing Sonic strike, spin-dashing a hole clean through the craft. Heavily damaged, Eggman took the cage once again and flew off into the distance. Sonic, with no more platforms to use, proclaimed to his terrified animal friends that he would catch up to them eventually. Later on, Sonic arrived in the Mountain Zone: after taking a moment to examine the dangers that await above him, Sonic jumped into action with the words "Alright Eggman, let's try this again!"

Reprint Edits[]

  • Likely as a result of the lawsuit between Ken Penders and Archie Comics Publications, this issues reprinting of "Endangered Species: Finale" contains two text edits that further remove any references to the echidna race:
    • The heading on the first page, which originally read "Former Echidna Home-land" was changed to simply "Ruins. Late Evening".
    • Sonic's dialogue while comforting Amy was changed from saying that they may be able to use Krudzu-tech on a Warp Ring to bring back the Echidnas, to simply that they could use it to bring back "everybody".
