Preparations For War
High Stakes on the High Sea
Meanwhile, on another day and another adventure... A Sonic Rush Adventure adaptation follows Sonic and Tails as they have been caught in a storm and have crash landed in an unknown place. Marine the Raccoon appears and appoints Sonic and Tails as her new crew. Marine tells them that the place is Seagull Island and she is the captain of the crew. She tells that nasty group of pirates have appeared on the island and are looting while searching for treasure. Marine pulls out a Chaos Emerald, only to have it taken by Johnny. Sonic is pretty impressed with Johnny's speed but goes along with 'captain' Marine off on their new adventure.
- This is the first appearance of Enerjak since Knuckles the Echidna #9.
- This issue's back story features the comic tie-in for the Sonic Rush Adventure videogame.
- Marine reveals that she has obtained the Green Chaos Emerald. It is unknown how this happened, since she lives in an alternate reality, and all of the Chaos Emeralds were transported to the Special Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog #169. It is unknown if writer Ian Flynn will explain how she obtained the Chaos Emerald.
