An explosion erupts from inside the [[Chaos Chamber]], seen from [[New Mobotropolis]] to [[Albion]]. [[Super Sonic (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Super Sonic]] and [[Enerjak]] then fly from the chamber with Super Sonic taunting Enerjak. Enerjak gets fed up, and tries to blast Super Sonic with an energy beam, but it has no effect on him due to his invulnerability.

Meanwhile, [[Julie-Su]] and [[Locke]] are watching the battle from [[Angel Island (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Angel Island]]'s surface, the former in shock that [[Sonic the Hedgehog (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Sonic the Hedgehog]] survived such a powerful attack, the latter still bent out of shape over his ruined plan. Julie-Su immediately tells Locke he had many chances to destroy the son he hated, which shocks Locke. Just as he is about to say his piece, [[Archimedes]] tells him that they were just as guilty for [[Knuckles the Echidna (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Knuckles]]' state, if not more. Julie-Su and Archimedes then proceed to the newly created [[Shrine Isle (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Shrine Isle]], leaving a stunned Locke behind.

On another part of the island, the [[Destructix]] are watching the two opponents trading blows. [[Sleuth "Doggy" Dawg|Sleuth]] immediately tells the other members they are done on the island since [[Doctor Finitevus|Dr. Finitevus]] only paid them to keep watch over the [[Anti-Enerjak Weapon]] that Sonic destroyed, and commands the Destructix to fall back. As the members leave through Sleuth's [[Warp Ring]], [[Fiona Fox|Fiona]] asks [[Scourge the Hedgehog|Scourge]] if he is coming, which he replies that he has a better idea. Scourge states since his [[archie Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 172|brief discussion with Sonic]] in the forest, he's been wondering who he is now and what he can do. He then takes out his Warp Ring (which was supercharged with energy from the [[Master Emerald (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Master Emerald]]) and activates it, stating he knows where to find those answers. Fiona is unsure if they should leave Mobius, to which Scourge says there is no where for them to hide from Sonic and Enerjak on this planet. He tells her "It'll be fun" and they go through the Warp Ring.

Super Sonic manages to take off Enerjak's mask as he tries to get through to Knuckles.

Enerjak then fruitlessly uses [[Thunder Arrow (Archie)|Thunder Arrow]] and Super Sonic reminds him he is invulnerable. Enerjak punches Super Sonic insted, and Super Sonic kicks him down. Super Sonic then realizes his positive aura has had little effect on the dark magic Knuckles is under.

Back on Angel Island's surface, Julie-Su and Archimedes confront Finitevus, the former demanding that he return Knuckles to normal. Finitevus then states he cannot even if he wanted to. He goes on to explain how his Hex works and that he's dumbfound it had no effect on Sonic. Julie-Su commands him to break his Hex. Fintevus replies he expected little resistance to Enerjak, so he "locked" [[Dr. Finitevus' Hex|his hex]] and only a life sacrifice can break it. As Julie-Su approaches the Master Emerald, Archimedes stops her, saying she has he life ahead of her and Knuckle's teacher must pay the price. Locke then appears, saying Knuckles will still need Archimedes' consul, and he wants to be the one to save his son. Finitevus then intervenes by attacking the trio, still wanting to clense the world with fire. After a brief battle, Archimedes teleports Finitevus away, giving Locke time to perform the ritual. Before he does, he tells Julie-Su the reason for the [[Brotherhood of Guardians|Brotherhood]]'s methods, explaining they only wanted to protect the ones they loved. Julie-Su sheds a tear and says she understands and so will Knuckles. Locke then gets on the Master Emerald and performs the ritual to break the hex, sacrificing his life in the process.

With the hex gone, Super Sonic is able to pull of his plan and purge Enerjak's spirit from Knuckles. Sonic then lowers Knuckles on the island, where he is told by a tearful Julie-Su of his father's fate. An enraged Finitevus then reappears, cursing them for breaking his Hex and saying Knuckles may remember some of his experience. Knuckles says he remembers everything and punches him onto the edge of the island. Knuckles demands he gets back up, but Finitevus lets himself drop and escapes in one of his Warp Rings. Julie-Su then tells Knuckles they need to return to New Mobotropolis to tell everyone he is alright, but Knuckles refuses. He tells them he is the last Guardian of Angel Island, and that he will protect the Master Emerald alone if he has to.
