Imita - stealing from the IDW comic?

We don't know much about it right now, but does anything about it that is known about now sound worth incorporating into ASO? Or have the potential to?

The new shiny stuff is tantalizing sometimes. The ultimate answer to that, though, is "why would we?" Different universe, different stories. It's unlikely we'd incorporate IDW's stuff, we have plenty of ideas of our own to toss around, and plenty of lore. Believe me, we're in no shortage of ideas and original content. o_o

If any of IDW's ideas or characters did end up in ASO, there would be a reason. They would also be properly reimagined to be incorporated into the story in a way that makes sense to the old Archie universe.

I take it the same would also apply to any of the Archie reboot characters?

It applies to IDW, to Sonic's latest video games, and yes to the reboot universe. We're pretty dedicated to telling the pre-boot universe as it would of been had it not been rebooted. That doesn't mean we won't see some of these characters appear, but it would be in a way that contributes to this universe's story.

Minus the mandates and the effects of the lawsuit, of course.

I honestly wouldn't mind Post-SGW Breezie, Casinopolis, and Neo Metal Sonic making there way into the story. I've gone on record with my distaste for the reboot, yet those bit I legitimately enjoyed.

Edit: And considering Legends #1 brought back the Preboot Multiverse and the Zone Cops, it would be easy enough to say IDW Sonic is just another Zone.
