Metal Scourge is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a robotic duplicate of Scourge the Hedgehog, much like Metal Sonic is to Sonic the Hedgehog, created by Doctor Eggman during his descent into madness.
Eggman had sent Metal Sonic to attack Sonic, only to find Scourge at Freedom HQ, and decides to attack him instead. When Scourge commented that he was going to conquer Eggman's empire anyway, Eggman immediately began construction of Metal Scourge, remarkably finishing in a matter of minutes, presumably by repainting and redecorating a spare Metal Sonic.
By then, Sonic was on the scene, teaming up with Scourge to take down Metal Sonic. When Metal Scourge arrived, Scourge reluctantly called the Suppression Squad into the fray. Both mechs were destroyed by Boomer's sonic waves. He later makes a cameo appearance in one of later issues along with Metal Sonic.
