This day, evil will triumph!
— Master Mogul, Sonic the Hedgehog #150
Master Mogul is a transformation that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is the Super Form of Mammoth Mogul, achieved not by collecting Chaos Emeralds or Power Rings, but through Mammoth Mogul stealing the powers of other Chaos Force-using beings.
Unlike most Super Forms, Master Mogul does not undergo a change in coloring in his first appearance. Instead, his attire transformed into a gold set of armor with a flowing red cape and matching kilt. He also wielded a large wooden staff with a green stone atop it. In his second appearance Mogul's fur was tinged green, and his attire was also green-colored. The second version was also many times larger than the first, which remained roughly Mogul's natural size, and had glowing green eyes.
The first known occasion where Mammoth Mogul achieved his Super Form was after his attack on the Floating Island, when he managed to absorb the Chaos energy within Enerjak through the Sword of Acorns. Despite his incredible power, Master Mogul was subsequently defeated by the combined might of Super Sonic, Hyper Knuckles and Turbo Tails, with side-line assistance from Athair and the Brotherhood of Guardians. Mogul was subsequently trapped inside the newly-formed Master Emerald after his defeat.
Master Mogul reemerged roughly a year later, after stealing the powers of Chaos Knuckles. When Knuckles returned from the afterlife, it allowed Mogul to tap into this power completely, thus restoring his Master Mogul form. Master Mogul then became bent on destroying the multiverse, going from reality to reality and destroying them, including Mobius-Seventeen. However, after Zonic brought together all the various versions of Miles "Tails" Prower, the Prime version of Tails, using his power as the "Chosen One", fused with all his alternate selves to form Titan Tails, and defeated Master Mogul. Titan Tails then undid everything Master Mogul had done and returned the multiverses to normal.
Powers and abilities
As Master Mogul, Mammoth Mogul's innate talents are increased to god-like levels, allowing him to easily overwhelm the Zone Cops' entire corps. His powers are in fact so greatly increased that he is able to crush an entire multiverse Zone with his bare hands.
In his Super Form, Master Mogul possesses vastly increased strength, speed and reflexes. Additionally, he is able to fly through mid-air and is invulnerable to virtually any harm. Master Mogul also retains his Ixian Magicks from his previous form and his Chaos powers have increased dramatically.
- Master Mogul was the first instance of a comics-exclusive villain achieving a super form; he would be followed by Scourge the Hedgehog and A.D.A.M.
