— Super Silver, Sonic the Hedgehog #29
Super Silver is a transformation that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is the Super State of Silver the Hedgehog, achieved by harnessing the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds.
Visual changes to Silver while in this form include a bright pale golden color replacing his normally white fur, and his mane becomes a darker yellow golden color that floats up behind his head. He has ruby red eyes and his quills float. The two on the back of his head point upwards, while the five on his forehead push forward and spread out, with the bottom two pointing upwards. The teal glow on his gloves, cuffs and boots turns into a bright yellow color as well. He possesses a golden aura that varies in size in a flame-like shape and displays both faint sparkles and electrical sparks.
All or Nothing
Silver entered the form of Super Silver after he and Sonic (who became Super Sonic) acquired the final Chaos Emerald from Zavok, who had assumed his giant form at the time. Super Sonic proceeded to beat back Zavok, forcing him back down to his normal form. To get rid of the Metal Virus around the world, Super Sonic used the Warp Topaz to open a Super Warp Portal and Super Silver used his enhanced psychokinesis to remove the virus from every infected living thing on the planet. Super Sonic had opened the portal up to the sun, where the virus was immediately destroyed. As the Warp Topaz began to spin out of control, the duo flew around the world several times at super sonic speed, removing more Metal Virus at a faster pace. Once Super Silver detected that there was no more Metal Virus left, Super Sonic decided to throw the Warp Topaz away through the Super Warp Portal. However, due to the extreme instability of the Warp Topaz, this action backfired and instead created an explosion (that Sonic disappeared through) that subsequently caused a distorted green gate of energy in the sky. Super Silver was thrust onto the island and slowly turned back to normal.
Powers and abilities
As Super Silver, Silver's innate abilities far surpasses his normal ones. Super Silver has enhanced super strength. He is capable of traveling at super sonic speeds, being able to travel several times around the globe in a mere matter of seconds. His reflexes and acrobatic skills are enhanced greatly in this form. This transformation also has the power of flight and is virtually invulnerable. Super Silver's psychokinetic powers are drastically increased in this form, being able to use it to remove the Metal Virus from every infected person from around the world.
