I've not caught up on the online continuation, though I heard the rest of the team hating Sonic was due to a very convincing setup by Grimer (though that may still not play much into the team's overall trust, similar to how quickly the Freedom Fighters thought Sonic was a traitor twice over in the Archie ones).
My main gripe with Amy in the original Fleetway was more she was just bland, Executive Meddling
apparently didn't like her quirkier lovesick personality (which ironically is more or less what became the definitive characterization for her in later continuities) and demanded she be super smart, mature and void of flaws
. Reminds me what happened to Sally. But hey, Girls Need Role Models
, apparently boring flawless ones.
I admit I didn't like the jerk Sonic that much, especially after being used to the warmer Aosth version by that point (the treatment of Tails between both versions is jarring). Don't remember as much about the other characters, though Knuckles I remember being more stoic and serious, a bit like he was in the Adventure series bar the Butt Monkey
elements, while most of the Chaotix were the same character (intellgent but curmudgeonly and snarky), except Charmy who was a lot like how his games version would turn out.
Truthfully I thought Fleetway separated itself from the games after the first 50 or so issues (ironically Archie gradually became more loyal). Not to mention the deranged plotlines and completely unfitting character designs that make the SEGA cast look even more alien than in Sonic X (eg. the tall bulky humanoid versions of Picky and Pocky).
