Miles Prower, better known by his nickname Tails, is one of the main protagonists of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series and its spin-off comics published by Archie Comics. He is a young anthropomorphic two-tailed fox who has been at Sonic the Hedgehog's side for much of his young life and is considered his most trusted companion, having helped him and the New Freedom Fighters defeat Dr. Eggman and other evil forces time and time again.
Tails is an anthropomorphic fox with the unique mutation giving him two tails instead of one. He has mostly orange fur with white fur around his muzzle, front torso, and the tip of his tails, and has blue eyes. Typically his attire consists simply of white gloves and red shoes with white toes.
Tails once took part in an adventure along with Sonic to save the Wisps. After being away on adventure, he and Sonic returned to Mobotropolis to follow up on Nicole and to rescue King Acorn, who had been captured and imprisoned by Walter Naugus. Upon their return they found the city being attacked by the transformed Tails Doll. As the two heroes battled the monstrous enemy, Sonic took a particularly nasty hit...
Countdown to Chaos
- Note: From the readers point of view, this picks up from where Tails' original history ended.
Tails took a moment out to see to Sonic. He found that Sonic was noticeably confused over what was going on. Tails was completely clueless over Sonic's claims that they were just aboard the Death Egg saving Sally Acorn. As far as Tails was concerned, the duo had come to New Mobotropolis to rescue King Acorn, as well as to follow up on Nicole. To Sonic's questions as to the whereabouts of Amy and Silver, Tails could give no answers with regards to Amy, but remarked that they hadn't seen Silver since a previous adventure in which they had met the Wisps. As the battle raged on, Tails became even more confused, as Sonic mentioned "nanites" that make up the city" and claimed to have no knowledge of the Tails Doll's Control Gem. An unexpected encounter with a damaged NICOLE restored Tails' memories of the original reality, while leaving those of the new one intact. Realizing that Sonic was right, and that things had changed drastically, Tails stood in shock as the Tails Doll was about to flatten him. Sonic managed to get him out of the way, and advised him to finish the battle first before dealing with the new problem at hand. The two succeeded in defeating Tails Doll, and rescued King Acorn from his cell after Walter Naugus fled the city. After talking with NICOLE, the pair determined that their best course in understanding what had become of their world lay in finding the other Freedom Fighters.
Tails is a very friendly and humble fox. He looks up to Sonic as a "big brother", and though he can sometimes lack confidence, he is always quite capable around Sonic and often helps him out. For a long time, Tails seemed to be perfectly satisfied with just being a "sidekick", but after his own adventures, he found he could be just as brave and independent as Sonic. He is very intelligent and at times he has even outsmarted Eggman along with the Freedom Fighters. Tails has a few weaknesses though: while intelligent, he is naive and still can act a bit childish at times. He is very caring and thoughtful of his teammates, especially Sonic. Furthermore, his confidence has grown as a result of his various solo adventures and accomplishments as a Freedom Fighter, enabling him to handle himself well in combat situations.
Powers and Abilities
Tails is able to use his twin tails to hover or fly, or simply increase his speed on the ground. His speed can increase to a point where he can even keep up with Sonic, making him one of the fastest characters in the series, though he can tire out quickly if he uses it too much. His twin tails can also help him in combat as he can use them to block and smack his enemies with great force. Like Sonic, Tails has been shown to be able to create his own variant of a sonic spin.
Tails maintains a genius intellect and is a capable inventor and skilled mechanic, sometimes working alongside Rotor and NICOLE. He may even surpass Rotor and Uncle Chuck in intelligence and has had to a rivalry with Dr. Eggman in regards to intellect and mechanics. This has led to the creation of various pieces of gadgetry such as the robot T-Pup, and he's also capable of piloting aircrafts, like the Tornado, and other vehicles.

- Tails' possession of two tails is derived from the mythological kitsune (Japanese for "Fox") from common Japanese folklore. The kitsune is said to be capable of growing multiple tails - nine tails at maximum - with it being said that the more tails it has, the more old, wise and powerful it is.
- The name "Miles Prower" is a pun on "miles per hour", a reference to the famed speed of the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series.
