Archie sonic era was wild in more way than one


Optimal_Confection_5

How about the time Archie Charmys entire family was gone and his friend died from an overdose chili dog and being disabled?


Floofdoge257

I mean... the chillidog was kinda poisoned. So that was some sketchy stuff.


Optimal_Confection_5

Yeah especially that time Scourge had sex with bunny without her consant


Tomas_Crusader17

why tf is sigma fused with zavok what the fuck is this image


E-HERO_Stratos

Beautiful


Joey-the-Sonic-fan

It’s from the Worlds Unite crossover. Also, Sigma isn’t fused with Zavok. He just changed his design and part of his body resembles Zavok.


Tomas_Crusader17

From all the sonic villains his design could resemble he chose zavok


Joey-the-Sonic-fan

Actually, I like Zavok. I know I’m in the minority there, but I think he’s cool and entertaining.


waffeelswaffeels

hey joey!


Joey-the-Sonic-fan

Hi, man. 👋


charisma-entertainer

Zavok appreciators, rise up!


Sonic_And_Mcu_Nerd

Hey yo let’s not forget his IDW depiction. I kinda want a deadly six mini series now. (Mainly to flesh out the Zeti more)


charisma-entertainer

IDW is the only way I can still enjoy zavok regularly


Joey-the-Sonic-fan

Would you rather have him make his new body look like Erazor Djinn? Lol.


Tomas_Crusader17

Yea


CJ-56

Sigma basically forces Eggman and Wily to make a machine that will give him ultimate power. He fuses Sonic's and Mega man worlds together to drain the energy of the two worlds, then opens a bunch of portals to other dimensions to drain them too. The Freedom Fighters, Megaman's team, X, Zero, Axl and Sticks go through the portals to destroy the machine letting Sigma siphon the energy and recruits prople from the worlds to help in the fight. This is from the second Archie comics Sonic Mega man crossover event. Its shortly before Archie lost the rights to them.


Mavrickindigo

Probably from a plotline that was scrapped because of executive meddling. Sigmas body just looks likenzavok. The deadly six stop mattering in the arc 2 thirds in


MyPhoneIsNotChinese

Why does Sigma fuse with another villain whenever he appears in a crossover. Remember Ultron Sigma? Not gonna lie, it was a cool idea even if the game sucked from what I've heard.


sonictmnt

Which was better: Sigma x Ultron or Sigma x Zavok


Sootfeather91

This belongs in a gallery as one of mankind’s greatest artistic triumphs


Mavrickindigo

The robot master collage from the first crossover was better


Joey-the-Sonic-fan

Agreed.


Sootfeather91

Even ***M. BISON*** is going to try to help. The *dude that* ***weaponized*** *his* **soul** is helping Sonic and his friends!


Flataudition745

What the fuck! Panzer Dragoon? With the dude from NIGHTS? ...is that Amaterasu backing up ALEX KIDD?


Mavrickindigo

The guy from nights? You mean nights?


speedssssss

i think they mean Reala, the red and black dude who looks like Nights


Robindionn18

Don't forget the chicken kids from Billy Hatcher.


Slash2324

Marvel: Infinity War is the most ambitious crossover in history Archie Comics Publishing: Is it though?


Sonic_And_Mcu_Nerd

For real This comic. Lego Dimensions. And Smash Ultimate. They all be like “are you sure about that?”


Mavrickindigo

Yeah. If you read worlds unite, it is pretty bad


circuitron

Why is sonic on this twice?


ShadowMay5

That's him being fast, they show him spindashing on the left side


charisma-entertainer

How to de describe this image: chaos


Mavrickindigo

That's basically the whole arc. It's a mess


Joey-the-Sonic-fan

I love how instead of just doing a crossover between two franchises, they went all out and did maybe the biggest crossover in history.


Boltthelucario

Apart from smash bros


Sonic_And_Mcu_Nerd

And Lego dimension. Dc comics. (With teen titans go and lego Batman with in that.) Simpsons. Lego movie. Lord of the rings. Power puff girls. Adventure Time. Back to the future. Beetle Juice. Wizard of Oz. Scooby doo. E.T. Ghostbusters. Gremlins. Harry Potter. Jurassic world. Knight Rider. Legends of Chima Lego city undercover. Midway Arcade. Mission:Impossible. Ninjago. Portal 2. The goonies. The A-Team. Fantastic Beasts and Where to find Them. And Sonic the hedgehog. Also it’s has Legos. (And Eggman references Facebook with Eggbook.)


Icywind014

Kinda screwed over the pacing in the arc though, because aside from letting Street Fighter show up in the final issue of the second act to lay the groundwork, they were barred from featuring any non-Sonic/Mega Man characters until the final act. This led to the second act largely being the writers stalling until they could get to the part they wanted to write and then speeding through it when they got there cause they had four issues left.


420justblazeit

That makes a lotta sense now, Worlds Collide was great all the way thru but I always felt like Unite was mid until the 3rd act


Mavrickindigo

It was terrible


ExpiredExasperation

It had some great art and some of the small side stuff was really nice. Your commentary isn't adding much.


Mavrickindigo

Then enjoy my multipart review of the story I wrote after it wrapped up https://www.deviantart.com/mavrickindigo/gallery/63080183/reviews


ExpiredExasperation

Weird, I just saw you talking about some things you *liked* amidst it all, and yet going around telling everyone "it was terrible" at every opportunity you'd almost think the StH/Image Comics crossover was better.


Mavrickindigo

You did? What did I say I liked about this arc?


ExpiredExasperation

Some of the art (especially Tyson Hesse), X's story with Rock, Sticks vs Roll, Knuckles vs Break Man, though for "reviews" it's pretty damn thin overall. But if you actually did enjoy some of the content the way you apparently claimed to have at this point then it's a little disingenuous to go around dismissively telling people at every opportunity "worst crossover ever" like you are now.


Mavrickindigo

Ah yes, thank you for reminding me the diamonds in the crap pile, haha. ​ Ian definitely did the best he could do with the mess he was given to write.


Joey-the-Sonic-fan

I thought it was really good. What was wrong with it?


Mavrickindigo

https://www.deviantart.com/mavrickindigo/gallery/63080183/reviews That has all my thoughts


Lawgskrak

I miss the Archie comics.


Joey-the-Sonic-fan

Me too.


TheQuacking

LOL WHY IS STICKS PIGGYBACK'ED ON X

Joey-the-Sonic-fan

Loved this crossover.


HomeRelate15

That Gore Magala thugh.


hapologtz

Unexpected and welcome. The artists at Archie have good taste.


Mavrickindigo

They didn't chose the monster. It was capcoms idea. This arc was a cluster of executive mandates


Joey-the-Sonic-fan

How I miss the Archie series. The post-SGW timeline deserved more.


AmaterasuWolf21

Ey, ey! I found another post-boot enjoyer! <3


Joey-the-Sonic-fan

I say the post-reboot comics are when the Archie series was at its best.


Joey-the-Sonic-fan

Well, sure. What’s not to like about it?


Mandaring

This shit puts my lizard brain into overdrive


Mavrickindigo

Just don't read the rest of the arc. Pretend it is as good as you think it is


Mandaring

That’s heartbreaking, I have the collected issues of the first Mega Man/Sonic crossover and the interactions between Eggman and Wily make me so happy.


Mavrickindigo

There are bits in it that are fine, but go in expecting a rushed mess and you won't have expectations shattered


Misssmaya

Seeing Skies of Arcadia characters included made my entire life


Chrisjl2000

The last comic I had was 244, I assume this is a little bit after that around the MegaMan crossover or genesis wave arc?


Glassguy3

A bit further actually, this is from the second crossover


NichS144

Worlds Unite Crossover event.


Boltthelucario

We need this as a super smash bros boss


5YearsOnEastCoast

Now this is a crossover that is more ambitious than Avengers Infinity War


Mavrickindigo

Not really.


AmaterasuWolf21

Scanning... scanning Amaterasu located! I've read this comic like 3 times and it still gives me dopamine ^(but serious now, let's make an Okami 2)


Chrolonius

Mega Man X and Sticks the Badger. Name a more iconic duo


RenyNoise

Has Joe doing the proper VJ hand symbol. I feel like that was a poor decision on the localization team to change that. It’s clearly a V and J once it’s brought to your attention.


SalaComMander

Yeah, but it has to be brought to your attention, and unless they're going to do that every time he makes it, it's (sadly) better to just censor it.


RenyNoise

Have you seen the show or played the game? He says his name during the transformation.


SalaComMander

He absolutely does not, but even if he did, that wouldn't be a proper explanation for the hand symbol.


Mattarias

THANK YOU. It was upsetting that the dub censored it. (Honestly though, I'm just happy whenever he gets ANY recognition. Geez loueez, Capcom.)


ProfessorLovely

Just seeing Viewtiful Joe in there alongside Sonic is enough to make me love


Joey-the-Sonic-fan

It’s not fair that the Archie post-reboot universe was cancelled when it was still young. Even if you include spin-offs like Sonic Universe, I don’t think the new universe got a quarter as many comics as the original universe did. It’s like cancelling the IDW Sonic series after they cured the Metal Virus.


Mrmehmeh243

The best crossover in gaming


Mavrickindigo

No. Worlds unite was a terrible story. Even the writer dislikes it


ElectionSad3519

That’s really awesome.


chiugy

I like how Guile is just loking at Bison with high levels of concern


Iceswimmer05

Avengers endgame vibes


TheFanGameCreator

If you look at the bottom left corner, you can see Cream carrying Flash Man and Wood Man.


Mavrickindigo

Too bad the arc itself was trash garbage and even in thinks so


logan436

Street Fighter VS. Capcom & Knuckles


whytfnotdoit

I love how Vyse and his ship are in the shot


rathalos456

Is the fucking Gore Magala tearing up Sigma’s chest??


Mamboo07

Yes


indigo703

SEGA's version of the Endgame battle


Yerga_Dergen

Sonic endgame?


Adof_TheMinerKid

This image is just Chaos


Edgy_the_Hedgy_2001

That's what happens when Capcom and Sega team up. Nights makes a cameo.


ScrodumHat

who’s the blue haired guy getting flown around by the girl with wings?


ExpiredExasperation

Ryu and Nina, Breath of Fire.


ScrodumHat

thanks


stayedfished123

Sonic Endgame


Kygo-MashYt456

In the bottom left corner, Creams orange patterning around her eyes is only applied to one of them. I noticed it and it insulted me.


the1895bigboy

Wait, mega man is owned by drag?


Gold_Floatzel

huh, weird


AngryBirdAddict

It’s like the Transformers shared IDW universe all over again


ChaoticMemer16

And they said smash was a good crossover…


Ineedtobesilent1234

Yo wtf is this?


Optimal_Confection_5

It's from the Second Mega Man and Sonic crossover comic series which features many characters from respective Companies and Sticks being there to increase the popularity of Sonic boom there's ways to read these comics


Reuel_eee_8324

What’s even happening here


Optimal_Confection_5

Sonic and Mega Man worlds united is the second crossover between them which includes the franchises of both companies and Sticks to increase Sonic Boom popularity


Accomplished-Dark658

The endgame we wanted


phinneas0228

Hey there, everybody. It's Ryu, from streets. Did you know? My favorite things are... jumping into the lake fierce, stale bread, water without any ice, the newest season of The Simpsons, aaaand Dirt. See you in street fighter five, everybody.


PuzzledDistribution

I want this back badly and still want my Vol 3 of Worlds Unite now!


ShovelBeatleRillaz

I feel like a Resident Evil inclusion would’ve made it perfect and you would’ve had all the Capcom allstars, well, that or Dante


gundamplayer14

God dammit! Who revived sigma this time!?


EltonStuffProdutions

It's had to believe such a bad crossover got the greenlight. The first one was much better.


jklantern

Breath of Fire 3 makes me happy.


minerpig_is_a_bimbo

Heh, sigma balls.


ElectionSad3519

This is epic😯


Prestigious-Fall-103

Can I just say how everyone is making a ring around tails?


Omegafan101

Makes me want a Sega vs Capcom


TheGrumpiestPanda

WOW! Okay, so I knew that Archie Sonic crossed over with Archie Mega Man, but I didn't know they just started including Sega and Capcom characters in general. Makes me sad the Archie Mega Man Comics died, I was reading them as they came out, and it pains me to this day.


Bikans

Yeah they had two crossovers. The first one was amazing. The second one that's in the picture is not as good but still fun.
