You and me both-maybe it'll be the next arc. We did have two back-to-back Knuckles arcs before Spark of Life, Fury/Worlds Unite, and the currently ongoing Silver Saga, whereas there hasn't been an Eggman-centric Universe arc since Scrambled. Given that Naugus and Wendy have at least one Emerald Shard, I could see them crossing paths with Rad Red at some point.

Spoiler: show
Personally, I wouldn't mind at all if Naugus became Knuckles' nu252 nemesis, in lieu of Thrash and all the other old reality villains who were Knux-centric.


So we're finally going to see the most oft-recurring Egg Boss in action, eh? To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of Axel-anthropomorphic Water Buffalo never look that great, and those chain gauntlets of his sometimes serve as a painful reminder that we never really got to see Diesel strut his stuff before the reboot. I'm going to guess now that the Gaia Temple "discovery" Chip makes has something to do with his true identity and potential, unless Ian's got another major curveball in mind. I am curious as to see what the deal is with the second story-I was wondering if it had something to due with Cassia and Clove given the wrapup the previous issue is going to have involving them vs. Sally and Bunnie, but I'm guessing this is something new.

So long as we actually get Razor's origin story, I'm not too picky about what publication it comes in.

EDIT: Forgot, I was going to comment on the fact that there are apparently going to be twelve Egg Bosses, unless Akhlut is keeping his old design and thus won't be able to participate. That's one more Egg Boss than there were active Grandmasters in the old reality at the time of the reboot:

Mordred (both realities)
Akhlut (both realities)
Lien-Da: Nephthys
Conquering Storm: Clove
Regina: Thunderbolt
The Foreman: Tundra
Diesel: Axel
Drago: ???
Razorklaw: ???
Bill: ???
Beauregard: ???
Cassia (I would throw Matilda here, but she wasn't a Grandmaster)

I wonder if the equal gender ratio will continue with the new introductions or if the ladies or not-so-gents will pull ahead.

Eggman's Dozen, huh?

Let's see what we got.

Edit: Ian fixed this, so here's the new list:

Akhlut - Northern Oceans
Axel - Efrika
Clove - Northamera
Mordred - Eurish
Nephthys - Midesta
Thunderbolt - Soumerca
Tundra - Artika
??? - Yurashia
??? - Tralius
??? - Southern Oceans
??? - ???
??? - ???

I suspect-
Spoiler: show
- Cassia and Clove are protecting a Gaia Temple; Abadat's.
Edit: Debunked by Ian. Empire City/North America does not have a Gaia Temple.
- Cassia and Clove are co-commanders of the same Army
Edit: Semi-confirmed.
- Mondred is also protecting a Gaia Temple; Spagonia's.
- The last temple is in Chun-nan which has a new Egg Boss. They're a Monkey Khan clone.
Edit: I guess Yurashia is Asia.
- Snively is #12, overseeing The United Federation/Empire City as a double agent
Edit: With Cassia the North American Egg Boss, this is probably false

I have no idea why that's considered a Sonic Comic Origins story since it pretty much has nothing to do with that.

I figured that one being longer was a special case.

The guy from Metropolis was not an Egg Boss. This has been stated already.

I thought he wasn't but couldn't find anything to confirm that he wasn't. Updated.

Amy was given a crapton of page-space and significance from the beginning of the reboot to the Crossover, so she is fine to be on the backburner for now

I must say I am quite interested in the Naugus/Eggman Arc. Especially since we finally have a non-Eggman Villain and they are going up against Eggman

Let's see what we got. Bold are regions that also have a Gaia Temple:

1) Akhlut - Northern Oceans
2) Axel - Efrika
3) Clove - Northamera
4) Mordred - Eurish
5) Nephthys - Midesta
6) Thunderbolt - Soumerca
7) Tundra - Artika
8) ??? - Yurashia
9) ??? - Tralius
10) ??? - Southern Oceans
11) ??? - ???
12) ??? - ???

Fixed/updated... to a degree.

Cassia is in a weird position. She's something of a co-Egg Boss with Clove, but she definitely doesn't have the same amount of authority/command.

Metropolis Zone just had a small Egg Army presence, with development of the shield generator overseen by a foreman. Those Egg Soldiers reported directly to Dr. Eggman.

Interesting so that leaves five unknowns. Which I bet the southern ocean fellow has to be an Aquatic mobian probably or maybe some pirate.

Given the continents are all mangled real names, it's probably Australia.

It's just that the SatAM Freedom Fighters appear in almost every issue, so why not Knuckles and Amy too? Are they secondary characters?

Amy's not really had a chance to interact with others in a central cast that's any less than "ridiculously large" outside of Waves of Change. Otherwise she's been part of ensembles, usually the bigger Freedom Fighter missions but also Champions. She's due for a smaller cast story like Light in the Dark or any of the other smaller stories.
