Imagine that one night Iiuzaka-San kicks down your door, grabs you by the shirt, and says, “Ian my child, we’re making a fighting game starring only SEGA characters. It’s like Super Smash Brothers, except it’s totally not Super Smash Brothers. Also, I want you to decide on the character roster. Ask your friend Kyle to colllaborate with you on this.” And then he drops a smoke bomb and vanishes into the night.
So, which SEGA characters will be duking it out on the fields of honour, and who will fail to make the cut?

I was rereading Mega Man #53 recently and came to the grim realization that at some point before Mega Man 7, every Robot Master from Mega Man 1 would likely be decommissioned. This made me wonder…just when and how were you going to play this out? How would it affect Rock and company, do the Robot Masters just accept this without question, and how was it going to hit Rock when he witnessed Wily making off with Guts Man’s deactivated body, fighting it as Guts Man G, and then probably destroying one of his longest lasting family members for good?
I truly adore the way you handled the existentialism in the Mega Man comic, I feel you perfectly managed to make the series a little bit more than “blue robot kid fights old man, old man apologizes, repeat” without making it feel like it forced in any way.

On a previous BumbleKast, you stated that Knuckles wouldn’t be allowed to use his Archie exclusive powers and abilities in IDW because… well, it’s his Archie counterpart’s abilities. Can he still use his other abilities such as Massive Heat Knuckles Attack, and Thunder Arrow, and his Level Up items like his Shovel Claw, and his Hammer Gloves, in IDW?

This year not only marks Sonic’s 30th but also the 30th anniversary of Dr Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik! Could you maybe just gush about him a little? How he’s evolved how He’s the best Sonic villain, the perfect arch-enemy for Sonic, and…just celebrate The mad genius we love to hate!

So, now I got something to ask about Mega Man, given a question that was asked a while back about the connection between Ra Moon and the Star Droids:
How do you feel about Evil Energy, the Roboenza virus, and even the Maverick virus possibly being related to each other? Or at least, whatever is theorized anyways, given the similarities they share between each other and what obscure lore exists about them as a whole, at least for the former of the three anyways.

Hero of Light 13
Happy Saturday, Ian and Kyle! So we know that movie Sonic’s powers can be extracted even from just one of his quills. My question is could it be possible for Sonic to pull an All Might and willingly pass his powers onto somebody else if they were to ingest some of his DNA? Hopefully I didn’t make the scenario too detailed to never be touched again lol.

Creative Name
Is [Sonic Spinball] canon to the Classic continuity?

Andrew D.
When do the new Classic era comics take place?

Lucas R.
Is sonic truly not allowed to outright lose?

Mohy yhmO
What are the ninja clans’ brides’ real names?

Cassidy J.
Since Abyss is a squid and Mimic is a mimic octopus and both octopi and squids can ink in real life, would that mean Abyss and Mimic have the ability to ink?

Throw Away
Hello, my question for the Bumblekast regards Shadow… with how he is portrayed now, what differentiates him from just being a straight up villain?

Michael B.
Kyle and Ian, what are your favorite songs in Sonic 1, CD, 2, 3, and S&K?

rodimus prime
Do either of you guys like Minecraft? If so, what are your favorite things to do in the game?

Question for both of you. Who has the best Rogues Gallery in fiction?

Hey Kyle, you weren’t a Pokémon kid, but were you a Digimon kid? If so, who was your favorite? If not, were you into any of the collect-a-thon style crazes of the 90’s/early 2000’s?
