The Black Comet is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It was a celestial object and the mobile homeworld of the Black Arms led by Black Doom.



Capable of traversing the galaxy, the Black Comet has been used by the Black Arms to attack and consume the populations of worlds they come across. The comet approached Sonic's World fifty years ago, and Black Doom contacted Professor Gerald Robotnik and aided him with his Project Shadow, with Black Doom planning to use Shadow the Hedgehog as an agent. However, the Black Arms were defeated upon their return to Sonic's world by Shadow, and the Black Comet was destroyed by the Eclipse Cannon.[1][2]

Shattered World Crisis

Act One

A second comet later entered the planet's orbit during the Shattered World Crisis, but it too was destroyed by a nuke.[2][3]


  • The comics seem to indicate that the Black Arms were capable of steering the Black Comet to some degree, as the Black Comet did not simply return to Sonic's World fifty years after Shadow's creation as it seemed to do in the Shadow the Hedgehog.
