Hello everyone, Kiva here and if its cheesy, I love it. And of course since the newest issue of Sonic Universe has come out, of course I had to review it. The first two issues impressed me, let's see if it can continue that trend.


So we see Eggman in his drill vehicle fall into some lava below (seriously, why did you build it over a lava pool, Eggy) but he gets saved in time by Axel the Water Buffalo. Once taking care of that Dark Gaia monster, Eggman asks why Axel saved him, since he knows most of his minions hate him. Axel brings a speech about honor and being part of something bullcrap, but we all know the real reason he did. Mandates and plot armor!


Eggman tries to check in with his other minions, who are not doing great. Ahklut is fighting with Tundra, Clove appears as she is going to cut down Thunderbolt, Nephthys and Maw are occupied with badniks, and while Lord Hood cowers, Conquering Storm has discovered that going LEROY JENKINS on a trio of Mobians enhanced with the power of a destructive god of darkness is a bad idea. (you'd thought she'd be smarter then that but oh well).


Abyss tries to shut down the backup generator while Lord Battle Chicken is taking care of some dark gaia creature. Since Abyss can't get it to shut down, the Battle Lord says: 'screw it', brings out his half-silly, half-scary rape face and just bombs the whole shebang. When asked what exactly he is by Abyss, Battle Lord calls himself perfection. Yeah, his idea of perfections breaks his mirrors every morning by staring into it.


But Storm and hood still are in trouble against the sooped up Witchcarters which makes Eggman realize Ahklut and Tundra are probably fighting. We learn Ahklut still is psychic and Tundra has an ice breath. But they get broken up when Eggman contacts them, steals Axel's speech and then threatens to turn them and their units into statues forever if they don't shut up. They reluctantly do what they're told.


That makes sure that the Witchcarters lose their power and make them easily disposed off by Conquering Storm and hood. Lord hood also reveals that the Witchcarters are not willing minions of Wendy, and are actually mind-controlled. He knows that from files Eggman had sent them, but Conquering Storm has skimmed that one. You know, Conquering Storm seems less smart after the reboot. Anyhow, Hood uses his own powers to break the mind control of the Witchcarters, and the trio vows revenge on Wendy for controlling them like puppets.


Then we cut to Clove and Thunderbolt. Clove actually doesn't stoop to Ahklut's level and frees Thunderbolt from her mech suit before its crushed by the traps and the two escape the death traps. Clove then manages to use her smart talking to trick Thunderbolt into thinking she is loyal to Eggman, but is too shy to admit and that Thunderbolt is more deserving of the praise; Clove is great, she's probably the smartest and most reasonable of the new Grandmasters.


Then  we cut to Nephthys and Maw. While Nephthys takes out the control tower, Maw shows us his special power...by firing something out of his maw. This may vaporize the badniks, I think, but Maw's dialogue afterwards leaves it vague on if he actually destroyed them or not. The dialogue is also revealed that those badniks are still powered by tiny animals so if he did vaporize them, Maw really has gone hardcore...eep!


Then we get a moment with the naugus twins. We also learn where the 'ixis' in Ixis Naugus' name went to after the reboot. It went off on his own to become a troll god in the new timeline. Not the weirdest thing that happened to naugus in the reboot. So naugus thought that Dark Gaia was actually the god Ixis, and his sister calls him out on the stupidity, certainly because the world splitting apart should have been a clue. They then argue about their opposing views on technology and Eggman: Naugus hates them both, Wendy sees technology as tools much like wands and totems and does't mind Eggman, only helping her brother because he's family.


This is interesting how they are portrayed. Like actual siblings they clearly annoy and insult each other, but they help each other in times of needs. Kudos. Anyhow, the two find that the power, the backup, the defenses, the mindlink and the control signal are all down.


Eggman then shows his face, joining him all of his Grandmasters and the ticked off witchcarters. He prepares to bring a beatdown upon them, but the twins are not done. They can still control some of the badniks, Wendy takes control of the Witchcarters again (yeah Eggman, you should have given them some protection) and they reveal they have turned Metal Sonic into Crystal Sonic.


One: that sounds like an illegal substance. Two: Crystal Sonic looks weird, like Metal Sonic is covered in some icy frosting.


Anyhow this issue was pretty great. I like the grandmaster interactions, I like the interactions between the naugus twins...I liked the reveal of some of the abilities of various characters. There are some small beefs like Eggman's idiocy of some of the Grandmaster pairups and not thinking to have the Witchcarters re-controlled but in the long run those are mere nitpicks.


The only real gripe is this issue feels to short! Because of these four-issue formats this storyline has to be cut short at points! Why couldn't this arc be a six-parter or more? This story is great as it is, but it would really benefit from a more detailed storytelling.


Anyhow, I still think this issue deserves five stars out of five. A real joy to read and I hope the final issue of the arc is going to end this on a high note. This is Kiva, signing out.

Efrika Freedom Fighters 2 by KivaHoloTitan
Efrika Freedom Fighters 2
Second set of Efrikan Freedom Fighters! Just because poor Efrika has no defenders in any of the sonic comics timelines.

ZIRCONA THE ZEBRA
Hailign from a tribal village, and trained to be a chief mystic, her people were wiped out in an attack by Robotnik. The only thing she has left is the totem of her village, which has the power to control the weather. While she is still young and in training and can't unlock it's full power, she can use its powers enough to do serious damage to Robotnik's forces.

Despite her young age, she has great wisdom, and as per tradition of mystics in her village, she speak in rhyme.

PYRO THE LION
Chief technician of the Efrikan freeom fighters, he makes thier weapons, vehicles and traps. Skilled in his own right, he has a need to overdo things. He created his weapon, a chainsaw sword, just for the sole reason that it 'would look really awesome'. In combat he's outright savage but if you're a buddy, he has a geeky adorable charm and he is a friend for life.

Showing Robotnik some love by KivaHoloTitan
Showing Robotnik some love
For a crazed maniac who tries to conquer the world and turning animals into robots, he has some girls who show interest in him.

In the Adventures of SOnic the Hedgehog, an alien bounty huntress fawned over Robotnik to the point she nearly married him, if not for Robotnik's mother beating her up.

Not sure if it's genuine or not, Wendy Naugus, the comics' incarnation of Wendy WItchcart, flirts with Eggman, calling him 'handsome'.

Thunderbolt the chinchilla is just fangirling over him.

Now these three are fighting over him, to his horror.

Lyra is just excited she possibly may have a mommy in the future.

Efrika Freedom Fighters 1 by KivaHoloTitan
Efrika Freedom Fighters 1
I got this idea after a conversation with Scott. I noticed that on Sonic's homeworld, Mobius, each of the continents has a freedom fighter group. Aside from Efrika, Mobius' Africa. It is the only Mobian continent that we never saw what the defenders looked like, either before or after that huge ass genesis wave. So it is about time we changed that, do we?

This is the first of two sets of characters that I created to be the defenders of Efrika, stationed in Mazuri. 

PROWL THE FRIGATE BIRD
I wanted a flying element on the team, and after looking up african birds, I went for the funky looking ones with a bloated red necksack. But Prowl is anything but funny. He is precise and calculating, carefully planning every move before swooping in and strike a foe down quickly and efficiently. He suffers from a tropical disease that eventually may prove fatal but it's still in its early stages. So with some special meds to suppress his condition, he tries to do as much good as he can in his life before the disease becomes his downfall. He may appear grouchy, but he is kind hearted. But because time is short on him, he hates wasting time and only cares for plans and ideas that prove efficient. 

TIANA THE HIPPO
She may be big and strong, but she is even bigger and stronger on heart. While big and strong and easily mistaken for a tomboy, despite her profeciency in combat she loves girlish things like shopping and gossiping as well. She may be very pleasant to be around, like a big sister. But if you are a Legionnaire or a Badnik...and you see her charging towards you, three words of advice: RUN LIKE HELL! She not only has great strength, she moves way faster then her bulk would suggest, and like any hippo her jaws are strong enough to bite crocodiles in half. Hope Vector never gets on her bad side. 

They are one half of the team uploading the second half in a minute or so.

There was this woman whom was cheating on her husband. He came home early from work so the man she cheated with hid in a closet before he could see him. However, the little son was hiding in the closet as well.

Son: It's dark in here.

Guy: Crud...please be quiet, kid. I don't want to get in trouble.

Son: if you give me fifty bucks I'll stay quiet. 

Guy: All right! 

The guy paid the kid fifty bucks. The week after, mother and her lover got together again, but dad was home early again. THe guy hid in the closet again. But of course the little boy was there too.

Son: It's dark in here...

Guy: Not you again...please be quiet, kid.

Son: I'll be quiet for a hundred bucks.

Guy: But last time it was fifty...

Son: I'll tell my dad!

Guy: All right, here is a hundred bucks!

That sunday, the family went to church, and was in the confessional with the priest.

Son: It's dark in here...

Priest: Not you again!

Now, wouldn't put it past him. Even if not, he will really badly hurt him.
