* CreativeDifferences: Penders vs. Bollers got so bad, it ended with them ''both'' leaving the comic simultaneously. Which is why we have Flynn... whose works Penders steadfastly neglects to read, but swears to chuck in the {{Canon Discontinuity}} bin if he's ever re-hired. As of recent events, though, Penders returning is ''quite'' unlikely.
** According to Penders, the editor of the comic forced him to bail because [[ExecutiveMeddling he kept on changing his stories]], the final straw being the Mobius: 25 Years Later story. More specifically, he stated that there would be no more work done on said story until Penders included other characters from the games, such as Shadow. Penders quit in response.

** Ken's [[http://www.kenpenders.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=50843#p50843 stated]] that some of the original ideas for the Princess Sally miniseries included a roboticized Queen Alicia ruling over her own subjects as a threat to both the Freedom Fighters and Robotnik. Another was a Thelma and Louise type story with Sally and Bunnie. Sega vetoed both of these ideas, wanting to use only Sally and Robotnik. This is what led to the Substitute Freedom Fighters and Geoffrey St. John.
*** Penders had actually mentioned that at one point, there were hopes for an animated adaptation of the ''Knuckles the Echidna'' comic that were being brainstormed at Creator/DreamWorksAnimation, but these plans never came to fruition, and Creator/StevenSpielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg severed any ties they had to Sega and Sonic in 2001, though DWA would reference the series in ''WesternAnimation/{{Turbo}}'' [[note]] which came out months after ''Disney/WreckItRalph''; Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo had actually distributed the ''Sonic SatAM'' VHS tapes in the 90's (they open with their 1991 green F.B.I. warning screens that showed up after the ''WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics'' VHS of ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' [[/note]].
*** [[http://www.kenpenders.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2586&start=50#p51279 Regarding]] the Source of All, one of the ideas that Ken was brainstorming with a friend of his was that the Source was actually an AI made out of a pool of nanotechnology, from either the past or the future, that was so advanced as to be indistinguishable from magic. However, they never figured out what it's motives were before it was nuked.

*** Ian's already given a little bit out: [[spoiler:Endangered Species was originally planned to have a ''happy'' ending.]]



*** Chapter 1: Antoine was originally going to [[spoiler:eventually die to Metal Sonic's explosion, but was saved by the fan reaction to his injuries]]. Also, [[spoiler:Hershey the Cat]] wasn't dead after all.
