|Sonic the Hedgehog #142|
The Original Freedom Fighters, Part 1
- Not only does the tyranny of Dr. Robotnik go back as far as anyone on Mobius can remember... but there have always been heroes to fight that evil. This is the story of those heroes... Sonic's heroes... who gave rise to Sonic and the Freedom Fighters as we know them today.
I Wanna Be A Freedom Fighter
- After her recent heroics, everybody's favorite pink hedgehog, Amy, makes her case to be a Freedom Fighter. But will it happen?
Mobius: 25 Years Later - Moment of Truth
- Cobar and Rotor, the greatest scientific minds of the future, present King Sonic and The Guardian Knuckles their solution to save Mobius: they must return to the past! There's a catch, however: in order for Mobius to be saved, there's no guarantee that the lives they have led will unfold the same as before.
The Original Freedom Fighters - Part One
Hope Kintobor (Doctor Eggman's niece) is working on a school paper. While using the computer at the library (located in Knothole) she stumbles across the original five Freedom Fighters. After asking Sonic the Hedgehog about them, he decides to give her a history lesson.
When Robotnik Prime invaded Mobotropolis, a retired colonel known as Tig Stripe took it upon himself to get everyone to safety. After hearing the news of King Acorn's disappearance, he moved everyone else to Knothole Village. He oversaw the construction of Knothole and was one of the very first Freedom Fighters, along with Spot Long, Sir Peckers, Trey Scales and MP Bull Bones.
The Freedom Fighters soon became five thorns in Robotnik's side. For years, they raided Robotnik's factories and did everything in their power to aggravate the ex-warlord; even saving a 7-year-old Sonic's life. They became heroes and icons for Freedom Fighters everywhere.
After the story, Hope asks, "So what happened to them?" Sonic answers, "They were betrayed by one of their own".
