** The ExecutiveMeddling that led to Amy morphing from girly-girl to tomboy was unpopular with Nigel Kitching and just as unpopular with fans. It wasn't just the idea itself (which makes for the first split between people who liked the new Amy vs people that preferred the old one) but also the role model-seeking reasoning behind it as she wasn't allowed to be as flawed as the male characters, thus often making her come off as rather flat and boring. Nigel Kitching was so annoyed with the change in fact that he deliberately stopped using her in his stories until the woman that made the decision (Deborah Tate) was replaced with someone else. The resultant stories by Lew Stringer (who agreed with Tate) where she tours time and space fighting evil is perhaps where the bulk of this opinion comes from as their quality varies from good to awful depending on who you ask. On the split fan, many Amy haters and fans alike love Amy's ActionGirl behavior and her toned-down personality.

*** However, Robotnik's imprisonment was made different in both continuities (thanks to [[=StC=]] - Online). In the continuation, Robotnik is locked away for the safety of Mobius, only for Dr. Zachary to free him. In the Archie comic, Snively locks Robotnik away for his own sanity and to heal his insanity, only for Robotnik to break out himself by accident, and be reinprisoned later on.

** Amy and [[WesternAnimation/SonicBoom Boom Amy]] are compared sometimes due to them being similar enough {{Alternative Character Interpretation}}s of Amy as even more of an ActionGirl than she normally is.
* CultClassic: It has fallen into obscurity (compared to other adaptations) post-cancelation due to being region specific and having [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes no rereleases]] however it still has a devoted fanbase.

* FanonDiscontinuity:
** ''STC'' had its fair amount of bad strips that fans would rather forget, such as Bravehog, The Trickster and Amy's Secret Past. Ironically, "Bravehog" and "Amy's Secret Past" also contradicted each other: Amy's Secret Past was an attempt to explain why she has similar slicked-together spikes as Sonic despite not having superspeed (him having obtained them during the accident which gave him this) while Bravehog showed all the hedgehogs in the past looking like Sonic.

** Amy's fangirling of Sonic being heavily toned down also appears in her ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' incarnation.



* ValuesDissonance: Much of the dislike for Fleetway's characterization of ''Sonic '' comes from America, which prefers flawed yet still largely clean-cut heroes. Archie's Sonic very much follows this characterization.

** It came up with the concept of the Freedom Fighters, which ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' and the comics based on it later borrowed. In addition, some of the Freedom Fighter members from [=SatAM=] may have been inspired by the comic's characters.
** It was also the first adaptation to depict Robotnik as an evil dictator who has taken over the world. His base of operations, Metropolis Zone, may have been the basis for Robotropolis.
** It introduced Troopers, which were most likely the inspiration for [=SWATbots=] from [=SatAM=] and other American continuities.
** Just like later games, it characterized Tails as a CaptainObvious.

**[[TheEmperor Emperor Metallix]] is the supreme leader of the [[BrotherhoodOfEvil Brotherhood of Metallix]] and one of the comic's most significant early villains. [[AIIsACrapshoot Going rogue from his intended purpose]] as one of Robotnik's drones, Emperor Metallix begins a crusade to [[OmnicidalManiac wipe out all life from Mobius]] and replace it all with machinery. To this end, Metallix forcibly duplicates the Omni-viewer, callously ordering his double agent Nack the Weasel killed when he sells out the Chaotix before trying to terminate the Chaotix themselves. Metallix later drives a crusade to roboticize the Miracle Planet--enlisting Grimer's unwilling help and later threatening to kill Grimer before Sonic's eyes--and, succeeding at that, alters history so that Robotnik never comes into being and Emperor Metallix leads a successful assault on Mobius that leads to the death of most of the planet's organic life and the few survivors relegated underground. Emperor Metallix has no compunction brutally killing whatever stands in the way to it and its own victory, and even Dr. Robotnik rightfully fears and dreads what [[TheDreaded Emperor Metallix]] is capable of.
