Sonic the Hedgehog - Sonic vs Sonic - P. A. Nolte

1/ A silhouette of the Retro-Orbital Chaos Compressor as it fires a beam of energy down at Angel Island.  This is the day the world changed.

Caption (Sonic): The sky above Angel Island turned dark the day Ivo Robotnik completed his grandfather's work and fired the Retro-Orbital Chaos Compressor.

2/ A group shot of the Freedom Fighters of Knothole.  Bunnie Rabbot, Antoine Depardieu, Sally Acorn, Miles "Tails" Prower, and Sonic the Hedgehog.  Our heroes.  They are geared up for battle, and look like they've already seen some.  This is, in fact, the end of the road.

Caption (Sonic): While the rest of the world experienced an unprecedented period of peace and prosperity, the denizens of Knothole fell into never-ending conflict with the man responsible.

Tails: Sonic?  Is he...?

3/ Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik.  He holds aloft the Master Emerald.  The six Chaos Emeralds float around him, glinting with a light all their own.  Robotnik's floating platform is a little worse for wear, but this is a triumphant moment, not one to worry about a little scratched paint and a dented fender.  They are in the heart of the ROCC.

Caption (Sonic): The Eggman.

Robotnik: CHAOS CONTROL!!!

4/ Out of a portal, holding his own Master Emerald, steps Knuckles.  Behind him are Amy Rose and Big the Cat, followed by... Miles "Tails" Prower and Sonic the Hedgehog?  How can there be two of them?

Knuckles: -ulled through, there's no telling what... we might... find...

Robotnik: Oh no...

Caption: Oh yes! Has Robotnik sealed his own fate?  Find out next time in a little story we like to call...

Title: Sonic vs Sonic: Chaos on Parallel Earths! or Two Fast, One Furious!


  1. Two Fast, Two Furious references are always a win in my book, so kudos on that.

    More widely, I'm interested in the ideas you're laying down here, although I'm finding it a little hard to follow (which may be due to my lack of Sonic knowledge). The portal from panel 4 doesn't seem to be foreshadowed earlier, so it seems a little out of left field. I do enjoy the in-process conversation of Knuckles and company as they come through the portal though. Would be interested to see what follows.

    1. I'm new to Sonic, myself, but the Chaos Emeralds caught my eye, so I did a little research.

      From what I can tell, there are a few different Sonic universes. Each with its own set of Chaos Emeralds. If the Chaos Emeralds act like Dragonballs, in a constant state of drawing together, doing something cool, and then scattering to the winds so the search can begin again, why not the Master Emeralds? And what happens when all the different Master Emeralds from other universes come together?

      Chaos Control does pretty much whatever you want it to anyway. If you could double, triple, or even septuple that power, ...
