Freedom Fighters in the Archie comics

Freedom Fighters are characters in several of the Sonic the Hedgehog fictional universes. The most obvious are the protagonists of the SatAM animated television series and the Archie comics. In most continuities, they are depicted as being Robin Hood-like outlaws, opposing the tyrannical oppression of Doctor Robotnik. Characters from the games, including Miles "Tails" Prower, Knuckles the Echidna and Amy Rose, are frequent members of all groups, though each continuity has several unique and original characters also. The Sonic the Hedgehog series is a franchise of video games released by Sega starring their mascot character Sonic the Hedgehog. ...

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Archie comics also adapted the Freedom Fighters when adapting the plot point for SatAM. Basically they had the same agenda in the comic as they did in SatAM, but after Robotnik's "death", the king returned and the kingdom has been reestablished in Knothole, and with the status quo changing from a group of ragtag rebels to soldiers fighting a terrorist owning a small portion of the globe. Sonic and his friends are more like Soldiers instead of Freedom Fighters. However before the term Freedom Fighters began to leave as a term for Archie's fighters and protagonists they had over time included more characters such as Mina Mongoose who works with the freedom fighters while juggling a singing career, and Amy Rose the newest member of the team. Mina Mongoose (dubbed Songoose for her singing talents) is a fictional character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series. ... Amy Rose ), also known as Rosy the Rascal, is a video game character who appears in many of the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games developed by Segas Sonic Team. ...

Scourge the Hedgehog (originally known as Evil Sonic) is a recurring villain found only in the Archie Comics series. ...


It is unsure exactly how many other groups of freedom fighters exist in Archie Comics' universe, as well as Sally's Substitute Freedom Fighters, a back-up group for the Knothole Team. The Dowunda Freedom Fighters operate in their namesake land of Downunda (a parody of Australia) The Wolf Pack, also carried over from Sonic SatAM but with a different membership (though still lead by Lupe) operate in the Great Unknown, The Forty Fathoms Freedom Fighters were an undersea group (though they haven't been seen for some time) and Knuckles and the Chaotix have all been shown, but even more 'leaders' have appeared, sans their teams.

The Archie Comics also features a group known as the Original Freedom Fighters. These five were dedicated to defeating Robotnik, and served as the inspiration for other groups. However, they were betrayed by one of their own, and were Roboticized and banished to the Zone of Silence. And other people living in Knothole Village have helped the Freedom Fighters (such as Mina Mongoose).


Life for the Freedom Fighter

The Freedom Fighters trained and (aside from a brief period during peacetime) did not go to regular school in the Archie comics, because they never knew when a mission would be assigned, so they had school when they could fit the time. It is dangerous to be a Freedom Fighter. Sonic and Sally would always tell one another in SatAM to take care because once a Freedom Fighter went on a mission, there was no guarantee they'd be coming back.


Freedom Fighters in Sonic Underground

In the Sonic Underground television series, there was another organization of Freedom Fighters. The Freedom Fighters in Sonic Underground differ from the other groups in that they do not have an established main headquarters and consist of a loose collection of cells (known collectively as "the resistance") spread across Mobius rather than a single group. While the most famous cell was Sonic and his siblings Sonia and Manic, there were also many other members, ranging from minor recurring characters to one-off local Freedom Fighters & groups. Trevor and Cyrus, both of whom were old friends of Sonic, are the main recurring Freedom Fighters; Trevor is well-connected and often gave Sonic the details of plans & missions, while Cyrus was a highly driven tech expert acting as Q to Sonic's James Bond. Cyrus had the most backstory, being initially blackmailed into working for Robotnik and then losing his father to the Roboticiser, leaving him a very driven person. Sonic Underground is an American animated television series that follows the adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and his siblings, pink hedgehog Sonia and green-hued Manic. ... A television program is the content of television broadcasting. ... Sonia the Hedgehog (her nicknames are also Sonya and SAP, which stands for Spiny, Annoying, Princess) was a character made up for the animated television series Sonic Underground along with her brothers Sonic the Hedgehog and Manic the Hedgehog, who attempt to defeat Dr. Robotnik. ... Manic the Hedgehog was a character in the US tv series Sonic Underground. ...


Single-episode local Freedom Fighters include Captain Squeege, a sea sponge who serves as the sole resistance agent at Port Mobius; Stripes, leader of a resort town who originally collaborated with Robotnik to keep the town safe; Rudy, a lizard leading a desert-based team who was based on The Road Warrior; and A.R.T., a sentient super-robot built by Robotnik who defected to the Freedom Fighters and died saving the Sonic Underground. Road Warrior redirects here. ...


Sonic's Uncle Chuck was a major Freedom Fighter and got Sonic into the resistance, working with him on the destruction of many Swatbot factories; unfortunately, he was caught and Roboticised. Unlike in SatAm, it doesn't seem he was Sonic's actual uncle but a friend of Sonic's adoptive parents (who weren't hedgehogs) that was known to Sonic was "Uncle".


They also raise their children in a hidden village called Sanctuary, which is the only place that remains permitanelty located.


Freedom Fighters in Sonic the Comic

Sonic and Co. remained condemned to live the lives of fugitives even in the UK's fortnightly comic publication, Sonic the Comic. When Sonic and several of his friends were cast six months into the future by Doctor Robotnik, the evil genius used their absence from the timestream to conquer Mobius utterly. Upon his return, Sonic quickly established an underground cell of Freedom Fighters. At first comprised of only himself, Tails, Johnny Lightfoot and Porker Lewis, the Freedom Fighters occasionally added new members including Amy Rose, Tekno the Canary and Shortfuse the Cybernik. In this continuity, the Freedom Fighters were eventually successful in overthrowing Robotnik, in a landmark 100th issue of the comic that saw the culmination of many disparate storylines. This article is for fictional characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise that appear exclusively in Sonic the Comic, who served as core supporting cast and Freedom Fighters in that continuity. ... Sonic the Comic, known to its many readers as STC, was a UK childrens comic published fortnightly by Fleetway Editions (the merged companies Fleetway and London Editions, which progressively became integrated with its parent company Egmont until it became known as Egmont Magazines) between 1993 and 2002. ... Amy Rose ), also known as Rosy the Rascal, is a video game character who appears in many of the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games developed by Segas Sonic Team. ... This article is for minor characters that appear exclusively in the Sonic the Comic continuity, produced by Fleetway. ...


The only other notable team of freedom fighters shown were The Flock, a group in the Chemical Plant Zone made up of sheep. Only two, Sab and Sol Furic, were named, and all bar them were later killed.


Mention was made of Zonerunners, freedom fighters who travel the Zones fighting Robotnik, but none outside of the regular cast were ever seen.


Freedom Fighters in the games

Although no group called "The Freedom Fighters" exists in the video games, Sonic has allies that have helped him battle his foes. The reason why there are no "freedom fighters" is because the characters are non canon with the Sonic video games, and because they aren't attempting to free the planet from tyranny. Rotor, Sally, Bunnie, and Antonie have made appearances in Sonic Spinball, albeit little more than cameos in bonus levels. There were plans to incorporate the Knothole Freedom Fighters and other elements from the SatAM cartoon into a game called Sonic Mars, but these plans were scrapped when the game became the equally ill-fated Sonic X-treme. Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball (also known as Sonic Spinball) is a pinball game combined somewhat with the storyline of the Sonic the Hedgehog series. ... This computer game has been incorrectly referred to or categorized with the PC game misnomer. ...


The Freedom Team

A set of freedom fighters depicted in a small series of concept art shown in Sonic The Comic, possibly by mistake, for a television series that never aired (and may have never even have started production) their members were Sonic, Sally Acorn, Flicky, Porker Lewis, Tek, Johnny Lightfoot, Chirps and Joe Sushi. They appear to have been redesigned versions of the small animals freed in the very first Sonic the Hedgehog game, as they share the names given to them by Sega Of America and Sega Of Europe, as well as similar traits. These may have been the prototypes for the freedom fighters used in Sonic SatAM and the Archie Comics series, though this is not confirmed. Sonic the Hedgehog is a video game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series developed by Ancient and published by Sega for its Master System and Game Gear systems. ... Satam Surname - India ... Archie Comics is an American comic book publisher known for its many series featuring the fictional teenage Archie Andrews, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, Reggie Mantle and Forsythe Jughead Jones characters created by Bob Montana. ...
