|“||Citizens of Mobius! Heed my words! The so-called "revolution" is over! I am still your master! Over the last few months, I have been foolish enough to share my power with another. I have now rectified that mistake! The recent battle has been a learning experience. You have all learnt to fear me even more... for you know I am invincible... and I have learnt never to trust anyone with my responsibilities! I will rule this planet! Mobius is mine... forever!||„|
|~ Dr. Ivo Robotnik|
Dr. Ovi Kintobor, currently and more infamously known as Dr. Ivo Robotnik, is the main antagonist of the now-discontinued British comic series Sonic the Comic published by Fleetway Editions.
Ovi Kintobor was a kindly scientist who sought the Chaos Emeralds to purge all evil from the world. By an unfortunate twist of events, Kintobor was taken over by all the negative energy on Mobius that he had collected, creating the horrible monstrosity that referred to itself as Ivo Robotnik, a fusion of Kintobor, the Chaos Energy, and a rotten egg.
While the true Kintobor was still within Robotnik, a recollection of Kintobor's memories was transferred into a ring, which was used for the basis for a supercomputer that had a hologram of Kintobor's head.
Originally a kindly scientist by the name of Ovi Kintobor this version of Robotnik originally sought to erase all evil from Mobius via the use of Chaos Emeralds and was responsible for granting Sonic his amazing speed and distinctive blue coloration.
However something went horribly wrong during Kintobor's quest and he became corrupted into the larger-than-life monstrosity, Robotnik, an insane, sadistic and power-hungry tyrant who sought to conquer Mobius in keeping with the events of the original Sonic games.
As the series progressed Fleetway's Robotnik would become ever more dangerous, arguably more than his Archie counterparts, though he would eventually be dethroned (however Fleetway have never actually killed Robotnik off).
Much as Archie had based their Robotnik on the one found in SATAM so Fleetway's Robotnik was based on the Robotnik found on Adventures Of Sonic the Hedgehog - ironically despite being based physically on the goofier version of Robotnik, his personality was the opposite of the Aosth version, and he was still a very valid threat to Mobius. Some even consider him darker, and crueler than the version from the 1993 cartoon. The later design combines elements from both Robotnik's Adventures Of Sonic the Hedgehog design and his modern "Eggman" look.
Whereas all other incarnations had Robotnik as a human scientist, Fleetway's version was not a human, but rather the physical manifestation of all negative energy on Mobius combined with Ovi Kintobor's intelligence and a rotten egg, making him the only true Eggman out of all the other incarnations of the doctor.
The personality of Fleetway's Robotnik has varied as different writers have had different ideas on just how threatening they wanted him to be, always dangerous he was originally also slightly comical with a tendency to obsess over egg puns, however some writers objected to this and tried to make him exceptionally dark.
As a result Robotnik would change considerably and while still retaining some comedic charm when needed he was, in general, a truly monstrous character and often plotted to destroy the planet entirely: this trait would separate him from all other Robotniks. Out of all the alternative Eggmen it was the Fleetway version that actively sought to destroy Mobius and almost succeeded on several occasions.
Fleetway's Robotnik is possibly the most sinister of all the bad doctor's incarnations. This mind-twisted monstrosity was a sociopath who thrived on other peoples pain and misery, and actually had people executed, usually for committing the most insignificant of misdeeds. One citizen stated 'the crime for ANYTHING around here is death!' He was also a master of disguise and the only incarnation of Robotnik to have Mobians working for him, like Tekno the Canary, who quit and Dr. Zachary. He also was lucky in having Grimer, the only assistant who was both competent, AND didn't have dreams of betraying him. Robotnik could also be a deadpan snarker, with a droll sense of humor.
Powers and Abilities
Robotnik possesses insane physical strength and durability. He can also absorb Chaos energy and is capable of altering his physical appearance through regeneration. He regenerates by encasing himself inside a large egg until his transformation is complete.
As God Robotnik, Robotnik is almost fully omnipotent. He can edit and modify the timeline any way he sees fit, rewrite any event and warp reality itself and teleport himself and others. For offense, Robotnik primarily resorts to lasers. These lasers can also teleport others and knock them out in one shot. Robotnik can also alter memories and make others fight for him through mind control, as well as clone himself, infect others with diseases, turn others into himself, fly, change shape and size, turn others to stone, strip others of their abilities and resurrect and summon anything.
God Robotnik's only flaw is that his powers can be removed through the Grey Emerald, reverting all of his changes : he is also limited in the fact that his own personality causes him to be easily manipulated by Sonic, who uses Robotnik's great insanity and egoism against him, tricking Robotnik into extremely foolish actions that contributed to his own demise (this also proves that while Robotnik had some degree of omniscience he was not fully omniscient by any means since he could not tell that Sonic was tricking him (though, as mentioned before, his own insanity and egoism may of blinded him to this fact regardless).)
- He crossed the Moral Event Horizon when he went through a phase of clinical depression, and said he would be happy if Chaos destroyed the world and killed everyone, including himself. Arguably, he did this earlier when it was revealed he was actually executing citizens. This version of Robotnik is less of a control freak, enjoying spreading needless destruction, loving chaos, fear and uncertainty, and inflicting cruelty on others, making him the scariest and most unpredictable of the doctors incarnations.
- He had several moments where he was actually comedic, such as in a strip that was never released, revealing he enjoyed reading teen romance and drinking cocoa, and even tear-jerking and it was revealed he is secretly lonely, especially at Christmas. Santa Claus attempted to change his ways, but to no avail, and after Santa left, he realized he had made a big mistake, stating 'I have no friends at Christmas..'
- Robotnik once looked a little more like his video game counterpart but he eventually used his regeneration ability to resemble his AoStH incarnation. Had the Fleetway comics continued officially, it was planned that Robotnik would use this ability again to achieve his physical appearance from Sonic Adventure.
