Featured stories

Smash & Grab


Zavok, Mimic, Rough and Tumble are busy fighting a Badnik horde. Elsewhere, Dr. Starline talks about how he managed to assemble them by making them think that they were going to get revenge on Dr. Eggman. However, he was actually planning to be accepted back into the Eggman Empire with an even bigger plan. First, he needed the power to keep up with his opponents. In a flashback, Starline explained to the group that they were after Power Cores. Rough and Tumble joked about them, thinking them of them to be objects used for a ball pit. Mimic wondered why they were going after Eggman tech because he wanted to get off of his radar and not annoy him more. Starline explained that they needed the cores for phase two of the plan and he would be erased from his records after that and not before. The doctor explained that the cores were concentrated energy used by a variety of machines in the Eggman Empire; when they are properly harnessed, they can amplify the user's physical abilities. Starline then said that to use the cores they needed to use special adaptors that he would build for everyone. Secretly, Starline knew that all that was needed was to touch their E.M. casings but decided to keep this from the others as they did not know. Mimic asked how the cores would help him disappear, only for Starline to say that he expected to spell things out for Rough and Tumble but was surprised that the octopus would have trouble. The skunks laughed at Mimic being called dumb as them.
