Silver the Hedgehog is a character in Sonic the Hedgehog by Archie Comics. He is a white hedgehog with powerful psychic abilities who hails from the future. Silver first debuted in the "Bold New Moebius" arc, where he was hunting down Sonic.
While Silver's past remains mostly a mystery, small bits have been revealed at this point. Silver practices his telekinetic abilities by slowly rebuilding his world. His powers aren't strong enough to be of major help, though, so he sticks to minor things. Silver has stated that he doesn't know many people. He mentioned two: his master and the guardian of Onyx Island. Silver has said that there are only a small amount of survivors in his future, and that he has time-traveled on at least two occasions. He says that he'll risk everything to save the world. Silver has also explained that his master (later revealed to be the infamous Mammoth Mogul) has taught him all about time-travel, and its risks. He believes that stopping a traitor within the Freedom Fighters will have big changes for his time. Silver also stated that Mogul has taught him about Metal Sonic's, as well as helping him to train his powers.
Bold New Moebius Arc EditSilver used a Super Warp Ring over Never Lake, in Mercia to travel back in time 200 years. Silver hovers over the lake, with Rob'O the Hedge preparing to attack him, however, before Rob attacks, Silver asks him if he's Sonic, to which Rob acts surprised, and lowers his weapon. Rob says he isn't but can take Silver to him. Silver then explains who he is, and that he needs to find Sonic, to save the future. Silver flies over to Rob, and his wife, Mari-An, and double-checks about Sonic with Rob. Rob tells Silver that Sonic lives in New Mobotropolis, and is probably in Freedom HQ. Silver says that they can use his Super Warp Ring to get to Sonic. He tells Rob to think about Freedom HQ, and while touching the Super Warp Ring, to get to Freedom HQ. Silver, and Rob pop in during a fight between Sally and Alicia, preventing it from getting worse. Silver begins scanning the area for Sonic. Sally mentions to Rob that Sonic, and Amy are in Moebius. Silver familiarly questions them being in Moebius, as he touches the Starpost. Silver connects his Super Warp Ring to the Starpost, and transports himself, with Rob to Moebius. The two then transport between a fight with Sonic, Scourge, Metal Sonic, and Shadow.Silver angrily remarks that Moebius hasn't changed.
As Amy and Rosy show up, Silver then ponders which of the several hedgehogs is Sonic. Though, before he's heard, an all-out battle begins to take place between them all, leaving Silver in astonishment. Silver walks up to Rob, and tries asking him, but is not heard, due to the fact that Rob is busy fighting Metal Sonic. He then tries asking Amy and Rosy, but again, is ignored. After several other attempts, Silver goes crazy, and traps everyone with his telekinesis, yelling at them. Silver tries to introduce himself, but is rudely cut off by Sonic. Silver angrily replies, stating that he had come from the future, to find, and destroy Sonic. Sonic, and Scourge point fingers at each other being Sonic. During their bickering, Silver recognizes Metal Sonic, and notices that he's blue, like a certain "Other" hedgehog. Silver figures out who Sonic is, and throws him against the wall, calling him a traitor. Rob sneaks up behind Silver, raising his bow & arrow to his head, saying that he doesn't want to hurt him. Silver then insists that Rob should want him to kill Sonic. Silver proceeds to explain that within this time-line, a Freedom Fighter becomes a villain, and destroys Silver's future. He then states that only Sonic is capable of such a thing. Rob then places doubt within Silver, and says that Sonic is known for being a hero, just as Sonic rescues Amy from Rosy.
Scourge then sneak attacks Silver, and Rob, spin-dashing Silver into a wall, compliments his telekinesis, while insulting his hair. After Silver, and Rob help each other back up, Sonic asks everyone to help him defeat Scourge, then finish business with Silver. Silver agrees, and everyone gangs up on Scourge. As Scourge makes a break for it, Silver joins the attack, and launches debris at Scourge, using his telekinesis. Later Silver, and the others are all defeated by Super Scourge, and knocked out cold. After back-up arrives, and is mostly defeated, Silver regains consciousness, and attempts to trap Super Scourge with his telekinesis, saving Miles. Super Scourge sarcastically compliments Silver's attempt, leaving him flattered. Super Scourge then escapes, much to Silver's amazement. Sally later demands Silver to attempt the same strategy, while she has everyone else attack. Silver begins to slowly lose his grip on Super Scourge during the plan, as the villain uses a sort of energy burst knocking everyone away.
A day later, after Scourge's defeat, Silver grimly heads back with Sonic & Co. to Dr. Kintobor's tower. Once there, Sonic asks Silver if they're friends yet, or if he wants to start another fight. Silver pulls out his Super Warp Ring, and says that he has more research to do, before he finds the real traitor, and vows that he'll come back to protect the heroes. Silver then leaves, saying that they'll meet again, as Sonic sarcastically tells Silver to enjoy his "Dystopian future".
Return 30 Years Later EditSilver kept his promise and found his way into the Mobius: X Years Later dimension, thirty years after his first encounter with Sonic. During the celebration for King Sonic and Queen Sally, the Dark Presence's leader, Lien-Da fired a missile at the royal family. Before the missile could destroy the king and queen along with their children, however, Silver arrived just in time and used his telekinesis to destroy the missile and save them all, telling King Sonic that he returned to attempt to save his future once again. He later explained to them at Castle Mobius that he believed that now was the time when his future would be plunged into chaos, and says that the Dark Presence are likely connected to it, and Sonic says that he should be searching for King Shadow's former right-hand woman, Lien-Da. After talking about expecting something different from this time he is flattered by the maid who is a Dark Presence agent and gasses Silver. The maid is then gassed by Sonic, and Sally takes Silver to the Panic Room with Manik and Sonia.
Silver wakes up after being gassed and sees Perfect Tikhaos damaging the city. Silver explains how his future was destroyed by a global sea that seems to have a grudge that was Perfect Tikhaos from this time. Silver attempts to destroy Perfect Tikhaos along with the Future Freedom Fighters and King Sonic. After the defeat of Perfect Tikhaos, by Sonia, Manik and Lara-Su, Silver explains that the crisis has been averted from this time period. He mentions to King Sonic about a freedom fighter betraying the team, but King Sonic doesn't know. Silver then uses chronos control and heads back to the future.
Return to the Past AgainEdit
Silver's next return to the past sends him in hunt of Rotor Walrus, who he believes is an imposter of "Boomer," who he saw in a picture of the Freedom Fighters as children. Silver uses Chronos Control and catches Rotor heading for the Northern Tundra, attempting to eliminate him. However, Rotor manages to call Silver off by telling him that his herd needs help. With other lives in danger, Silver agrees to help.
Rotor and Silver manage to break into Robotnik's base there, and Silver takes advantage of a neural interface machine to cause a psychic wave that breaks the Legion's control over the Walrus Herd. He also took the opportunity to ensure that the walruses could never be mind controlled again.
Having been corrected about how "Boomer" was Rotor's Childhood Nickname, Silver returns to the future, where his master, Mammoth Mogul, calls him back.
Later, Silver discovers a hidden room with Edmund that has Antoine D'Coolette's journal inside. Silver takes the journal to Mammoth Mogul, suspecting from whatever is left of the journal that Antoine is the traitor. Mogul then orders Silver to not return until he finds the real traitor and stops him. He takes Silver's Time Stone and giving him instructions on how to return, but only after he has stopped the traitor. Mogul sends him to the past.
Once wandering the present, Silver runs into Sonic, who was grieving over Antoine and Sally. Silver tells him that Antoine is the traitor, which causes Sonic to go into a frenzy, dragging him by his hair to the Tommy Turtle Memorial Hospital, where Antoine is there in a coma. Sonic explains Antoine's state after an incident with Metal Sonic (Archie), where Antoine saved the life of Elias Acorn, which means he couldn't betray the Freedom Fighters. Sonic then finds a letter from Bunnie D'Coolette saying she's left, believing its her own fault for Antoine's condition, leaving Silver to believe she might be the traitor. Sonic then snaps and attempts to attack Silver, where he uses his Telekinesis to stop him. Sonic tells him that he believes he's a flake and that his friends are 10 times the hero he's trying to be, he then orders him to go home. After Silver says he's stranded, Sonic tells him to get out of his sight.
Silver than wanders throughout New Mobotropolis looking at how beautiful it is. He then runs into Harvey Who in the Julayla Memorial Park. Harvey tries to help Silver with his problems but Silver just says that he should give up and that the Ixis Resurgence is just around the corner, stating that there's nothing he can do to stop it. Harvey than says he knows who Silver is, making the hedgehog even more depressed, thinking he's probably already caused a million paradoxes. Harvey then informs Silver of a way to save the world, and not even get noticed by the history books. Harvey Who asks Silver the Hedgehog to join Secret Freedom Fighters.
Ace in the HoleEdit

Please update it with new information which is confirmed and released.
As a condition of Silver joining the Secret Freedom Fighters, he worked out a deal where Director Who would in return, look over Silver's notes and help identify his traitor. Once the team was fully assembled, Silver then went to help repel Dr. Eggman's invading ground forces and Team Metal. During the battle Silver held Metal Amy in place without being detected, enabling Big to destroy the robot. This helped them to prepare for their real mission: destablizing the rule of the evil wizard Ixis Naugus. Silver had been warned of the wizard by his mentor in the future, who remembered that Naugus had attempted to lead the Ixis Resurgence while ruling as a king.
With the team's first mission a success, Harvey Who sent Silver, under the codename "Ace", along with Agents "Jack" and "Joker" to track and report the actions of Geoffrey St. John, leading them to Windy Valley in Soumerca, where they placed a tracking device on his Extreme Gear. While investigating the underground crypt of Ixis Vale, Silver was stunned to find mention of "Ixis Mogul", leaving him troubled. When the team tried to capture St. John, Silver brought down part of the tunnel to trap him, but the former agent set off a number of explosives to collapse the tomb on top of them. Silver held back the falling rocks with his telekinesis and saved them though, as Shard dug them free.
Once they escaped, Silver had to recharge for keeping the earth stable, and his squad returned to Secret HQ where Director Who yelled them for not stopping Geoffrey. Silver then showed the tracker led to the Pit, where Agents "King", "Queen of Hearts" and "Queen of Diamonds" last reported from but did not return, and Silver led his squad to investigate. At the bottom, they regrouped with the others to discuss the situation, concluding they had to question Geoffrey. Silver believed he could appeal to St. John's better senses, knowing what it was like for plans to fall apart despite his best efforts, and then met with Geoffrey at the Lake of Rings to make his claim about St. John's character. After discussing his wife, Geoffrey revealed Naugus' plan to cast a spell on the Council of Acorn, but Silver's pleas to help went unheeded. Now organised, Silver then headed out with his team to stop Naugus.
Silver and his team, minus Larry, attacked Naugus in his chamber, Silver teaming up with Shard to challenge the wizard. The pair proved formidable, Silver's telekinesis proving a worthy match for Naugus' magic as he manipulated the stone that Naugus conjured against him. Getting overconfident, Silver boasted of his previous success against Enejak, taunting Naugus that his abilities were nowhere near as impressive. Naugus responded by transforming the air around Silver into fire that spread throughout the chamber, and only Shard's timely intervention saved Silver from a fiery demise. Shard stopped Naugus' spell by destroying Ixis Vale's remains after Silver noted the failure of their attacks on Naugus himself. Geoffrey, who had been battling their teammates, remarked that they should have planned to take out Vale's remains, and received a telekinetic shove and rebuke from Silver. The time traveler assisted his team in escaping by carrying them with his telekinesis, and with their mission accomplished they returned to Secret HQ. Silver then met with Harvey, who commended the Hedgehog and then told him that he had identified Silver's traitor. Having compared Silver's copy of Antoine's journal with the present day one and his own information, Harvey had eliminated all but one of the founding Knothole Freedom Fighters as suspects. Crossing out photos of the others on a poster he had put together, the Owl informed a stunned Silver that he was confident of the traitor's identity, as well as the reason for their betrayal.
- Silver's speech bubble is encircled by a cyan outline whenever he speaks.. But in Issue 215 and on, his speech bubbles are normal (without lines).
- Even though Silver can time travel in the game series, it doesn't exactly show how (Although Sonic 2006 had Silver traveling into the past with Mephiles or by using a simultaneous Chaos Control with Shadow and Sonic to learn the truth ten years prior to the events and to help Sonic travel to the past as well as have himself and Blaze return to their time, respectively). In the comics, he time travels using a Super Warp Ring or Time Stone.
- Starting in Sonic Universe 8, Silver has stopped using the Super Warp Ring, instead using a Time Stone to cause Chronos Control. It was confirmed to be a Time Stone by StH #215.
- Outside of his normal psychokinesis, Silver has minor telepathy abilities, and can only give people headaches.
- Silver's Secret Freedom Fighters Outfit resembles his "Race" outfit from Sonic Rivals.
- Silver is the only Secret Freedom Fighter (Besides Shard) who doesn't wear goggles or a face mask to hide his appearance, but unlike the others he is from the future thus having no connections with enemies in the present.
