“Welcome to the Sonic comic universe - a world unique & beyond what you know from the SEGA games! Where Sonic and the heroic Freedom Fighters work to save the world from the forces of evil!”
That’s no lie, folks. This is the world of the Archie Sonic Comics, after the massive change brought about by the Super Genesis Wave. In this new world, Doctor Ivo Robotnik(a former Guardian Units of the Nation or G.U.N technical researcher and better known as the Eggman) conspired with fellow technician Julian Snively and Walter Naugus(royal wizard of the kingdom of Acorns) to convince King Nigel Acorn that Eggman was a turncoat from G.U.N, a rogue agent who came to warn of a planned invasion by the United Federation. As the Kingdom had had to fend off the well-meaning but heavy-handed machinations of the Federation before, King Acorn believed them and offered his resources to Eggman in exchange for keeping the Federation at bay. Using the Kingdom’s riches and his own unique genius, Eggman was able to establish a bogglingly massive Badnik Army supposedly for the sake of the Kingdom.

Afterwards, he began a campaign of utter conquest, starting with the capital of the Kingdom of Acorns Mobotropolis. From there on, he spread his dominion across the world, spreading the tendrils of the Egg Empire in nearly every continent. While he encountered resistance from the G.U.N, the Federation army was still recovering from the forced stand-off with the Kingdom’s forces.
Eggman, however, was not content. He needed a silver bullet to ensure he would remain victorious. The legend of the Chaos Emeralds still rang in his ears, and so he made his search. It was then that a young Mobian known as Sonic the Hedgehog made himself known…
