The Distant Abyss Zone is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is an alternate Zone connected to the same Multiverse as the Prime Zone.
The first inhabitant from Sonic's World to visit it was Metal Sonic, who ended up there after traveling through a Genesis Portal from the Burning Ruin Zone that was closed behind him by Silver the Hedgehog. Dr. Eggman later traveled to this Zone via another Genesis Portal to recover him, only to encounter a monstrous creature that he battled using his Big Arm vehicle. After defeating it, he successfully recovered Metal Sonic and returned to Sonic's World.
