Meanwhile, Flickering Myth has unveiled the next universe arc, and it looks to be chaos! Knuckles heeds forces telling him to fix the broken planet below, and wouldn’t you know it, Sally’s hired the Chaotix to hunt out the Chaos Emeralds at the same time. When their two paths meet, it only means a team up of quite the baddie-beating power, which can perhaps be used against any hooligans they happen to find alongside the Rexes and Nightmares coming out of the planet! This is “The Great Chaos [Trust me, it’s chaos] Caper”: Part 1.

  1. This certainly looks very interesting.

    But where the heck is Mighty? He’s the only member of the Chaotix that I actually like aside from Espio. Don’t tell me we’re gonna have to start asking that for the comics too because of the universe reboot.

    Ugh, Iaaaaan…

    1. They’ll return.

      Ian Flynn already said over on his forum
      “OH! And: Mighty and Ray will be back this year. Not saying when or where, tho’.”

  2. Could care less about Mighty and Ray. Vector and Charmy are my favorites. And Espio is well liked by me too of course.

    Just love that image of Charmy with a bubble pipe. This should mean he’s actually 6-years-old and not brain-damaged anymore.

  3. Here’s my theory: It might just be the Sonic Unleashed it could’ve been, with Knuckles playable at night instead of Sonic the Werehog. But the only problem with working Knuckles into the story is the fact that he not only guards the Master Emerald, and would guard it from Rouge, but als that he’s more gullible! So in the finalized product, Sonic the Werehog was made playable.

  4. About time Chip showed up into the comics. I’ve been wanting that to happen since I first played Sonic Unleashed. Also, it’s great to see Nack/Fang returning with Bean and Bark. Another Chaotix story is awesome as well, since Vector is the man!
