His tale begins back when he was a prickly, brown hedgehog, with him accidentally burrowing into Kintobor's underground laboratory, just as he is working on the Retro Orbital Chaos Compressor-- [[FunWithAcronyms or just ROCC for short]], which the good doctor intends to use to rid the world of all evil, as soon as he finds the seventh Chaos Emerald, which is required with the other six already in the machine. Sonic and Kintobor become [[JustForPun fast friends]], and after a freak accident involving a treadmill (due to Sonic wanting to kick the mass versus velocity theory in the dirt) Sonic's fur is turned from brown to cobalt blue, and his quills are permanently fused together from the heat of the speed he was going at--and Kintobor promptly gives him a special pair of friction-less shoes to replace his old ones. But one day, Kintobor [[NiceJobBreakingItHero spills a drink on the ROCC controls]], causing the machine to go haywire; not only scattering the ROCC's containment rings all over South Island, but also bathing Kintobor in 10,000 bolts of Pure Evil Energy, causing him to transform into Dr. Robotnik.

It's not that Sonic Adventure adopted the "early Japanese continuity" (which was, in the end, a very minor difference barring Sonic 2) - it's more that it made the existing practice of English and Japanese storyline segregation impractical.

Chaos emerald was a former name, right?
The rest of the comic is spent on Sonic partaking in loose adaptations of the levels from the games to try and stop Robotnik, as well as saving Porker Lewis in the end (albeit losing a ChaosEmerald to Dr. Robotnik in the process) and the comic [[BreakingTheFourthWall telling the readers]] to go buy the game to see what happens next.

Compare to the Japan only, three volume tie in manga, [[http://sonic.wikia.com/wiki/Sonic_the_Hedgehog_Story_Comic "Sonic The Hedgehog Story Comic"]], which likewise provides a little backstory to Sonic before the main game (and is likewise unrelated to the other Sonic manga series published there).
