I think you can guess the bad pun I'd go with here.

Rotor convinces Silver to help him save the walruses. Meanwhile, Sonic and the Arctic Freedom Fighters are already battling through the Legionized whales and mind-controlled walruses until the two arrive. Using Silver’s powers and Rotor’s tech skills, the enemy is defeated and the day won. Silver returns home in the back-up story and we learn who his mentor is…Mammoth Mogul! (For non-fans or recent fans, that’s a big deal.)

What they got right: The mentor reveal caught me off-guard in a good way, and now I want to know how that story came about. The rest is up the usual standards. I like seeing Rotor back to form, even if it’s only temporary.

What they got wrong: No mention of T-Pup? I’ll be reading the final chapter of Tails’s arc in Sonic Universe next week for review and I’m hoping it’s just an oversight. I like T-Pup.

Recommendation: I wouldn’t mind seeing the Arctic Freedom Fighters get their own Sonic Universe arc. I enjoyed the comic, and game/comic fans should check it out.

It's a good week to be a polar bear at the Spotlight this week.
