The Anton is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. It is a terrestrial ant-based Badnik variant created by Dr. Ivo Robotnik. It is described as one of Robotnik's more advanced Badnik models.
A large number of Antons were stationed in the Palmtree Panic Zone until B.A.R.F. arrived to relocate them and the local Badniks to the Green Hill Zone under orders from Robotnik. One Anton protested, but Bert smashed it with his hammer. While the Antons and the other Badniks complied to the relocation, they decided they were not going to share a Zone with outdated Badniks, and obliterated the locals in a violent frenzy. However, B.A.R.F. brought them under control using upgraded super-Badniks dubbed the Seven Badniks, and forced them back to the Palmtree Panic Zone to battle the Freedom Fighters, where Sonic swiftly destroyed them.
