Okay so a lot of people have been hating on these panels. Disagree with me all you’d like, but I actually think this is an interesting side to the situation.
SONIC CAN ONLY TAKE SO MUCH.
He’s not some perfect being who can run forever. He cannot take bullet after bullet after bullet and then have everyone expect him to keep on going. These are very human
hedgehog tendencies. Think about it, can you keep going when life throws things in your face constantly? I know I can’t and sometimes I feel like giving up. Why isn’t Sonic allowed to feel this way? I mean, yeah it hurts to watch Sonic go through this, but can you really expect him to react any other way?
That being said, we all know Sonic is going to get back up and fight at some point. It’s a given. It’s a comic book and the heroes win and prosper.
Isn’t that great though? Can’t we look up at this and say that Sonic has hit rock bottom and then enjoy it as we watch him rise back up to the top? Maybe he’ll learn something from all of this. Maybe there will be character development. Maybe we can learn something.
Not to mention, someone else brought up the fact that Tails and Amy have to give Sonic the pep talk. SO what? Tails and Amy mean a lot to Sonic and they out of anyone can put back the spring in his step.
I honestly don’t see why y’all don’t like this.
I saw the original page earlier, and you pretty much summed up what I wanted to say about it PERFECTLY
Yeah, Sonic has an indomitable spirit, but expecting him to be all EVERYTHING IS COOL GUYS 24/7, ESPECIALLY after the situation presented here (losing the kingdom, having one of his friends get blown up and another RUN AWAY, not to mention HAVING THE GIRL HE JUST STARTED DATING AGAIN TURN INTO A ROBOT) ….yeah, HE’S GONNA BE A LITTLE PUT OUT
and for those who say WEH AMY AND TAILS HAD TO PEP TALK HIM— …what the hell do you think happened at the end of Generations HE HAD HIS ENTIRE ENCOURAGE PUSHING HIM TO GET BACK UP AGAIN
the comics are far from perfect, but to list one of it’s weak points for giving Sonic some actual emotions outside of NOTHING GONNA BRING ME DOWN NOPE isn’t one of them
(also, Archie!Sonic has been through a lot more emotionally draining things than game!Sonic has— of course he’s gonna act differently to these sorts of things since he’s technically an AU!)
