The Perfect Moment of Shadow the hedgehog
Here is something for one perfect moment week. If you remember back a few years ago, you remember the let down of the Shadow the Hedgehog game was. It was suppose to give Shadow's origins, but failed to do so and gave repetitive endings that lead to nowhere. But thankful, Archie Comics gave Shadow a bad-@$$ story in "Sonic the Hedgehog #171" called "I Am." Written by Ian Flynn and art by Tracy Yardley. This defines Shadow to what he is.
After working for Egg-butt for some time, Shadow gets fed up with him and demends his payment for his serivces, his creator's journal on a computer disc. After refusing the hog's demends, even though he was strong enough to lift him off the ground, Shadow decieded to get the info from the toad known as Snively by threating to take what he loves the most... his last of his hairs. Needless to say, the green croward sings like a bird, and Shadow plucks his hair just for the fun of it. This causes Snively to go into a Battle Frenzy.
Shadow needs a safe place to read his creator's dairy disc, so he goes to the Freedom Fighters HQ to use their system. On the way, he gets attack by Ro-But-Nik's forces who managed to cause a small chip of damage on the disc, which almost makes it useless. Sonic abd Tails come in and helps him after saying that the journal is the only thing that can help him found out what he is. Sonic, being the true blue hero that he is, helps his menacing counterpart out by having Nicole and Tails sending the two hedgehogs into the disc. Insert Random Matrix Joke here.
Just then, Snively comes in, since Shadow still has his hairs, which have trackers in them. Knuckles heads out to fight him while Tails keeps on eye on Sonic. Back in the hologram room.
So yea, the whole part alien in the form of a hedgehog problem is still here, but the seires is still cool.
I am, I am, I am, I am all of me.
That's how the video game should have ended. That and actually gave a reason why Prof. Gerald made Shadow a hedgehog in the first place.
I hope I get this right, working the edits of InsaneJournal is.. insane.
