So a big gripe I hear about people when it comes to the Archie Sonic comics is what happened to Bunnie lately. Most people see this as writing her off, but while it may be true that she's been dropped off of this storyline, I don't think she's being dumped entirely, and I don't think her actions are as terrible as people say. If there is anything you guys want me to elaborate, please let me know.
So what happened exactly? Well, first Bunnie was deroboticized when Ixis Naugus hit her with crystal magic and when he undid the spell, she was made flesh and blood. This took away her super powers and made her a normal person. Lots of people look at this and say that this is some "A wizard did it" plot device. Problem with this is that we're in a setting and a story where "A wizard did it" is totally acceptable. Naugus has no control of himself and he has a chaos emerald strapped to the edge of his scepter. I would expect him to make mistakes.
After that, she goes off into the battlefield without her powers and forgets she had them, only to find out she's useless as a fighter. Some people say she's stupid for this, but I think that even without her weapons, she probably felt she could do SOMETHING, and just forgot in the heat of battle. Having those parts are second-nature to her, that she hasn't unlearned yet.
Finally, Bunnie goes off to find a way to "make things right." People are up in arms about this, and I feel this needs to be addressed so badly. Did Bunnie go to her Uncle's to be Legionized? We don't know that yet. But for the sake of this argument, let's say she did. Bunnie doesn't know about the bombs, probably. It's not something that's common knowledge, and I don't recall people outside the DEL talking about it too much. So she probably thinks that she could pop on over, get some robot parts, and head back home. I do not think she was actually legionized, and I have proof.
So in the "Chaotix Quest," we go to Sand blast city and the DEL chapter near there. In it we see two panels with Bunnie in it. The first shows bunnie in her hat, probably in her old look, the second we see this
Obviously, since we saw Bunnie before looking like her old self, and we see Bunnie now in a new design, we can assume the design is final. Look at this design, there don't seem to be robot parts here. Why bring a seemingly flesh-and-blood redesign only to add robot parts to it?
Here is my thoughts: Bunnie wnet down looking to get cyborg parts, Beau, being her uncle told her he couldn't let her do that, she did some soul searching while they kept her hidden for awhile while she worked out her problems.
I don't think she betrayed the freedom fighters, I don't think she joined robotnik's army, and I don't think people should be all up in arms about this. We haven't had the full story, so we can't figure if it's a horrible character-destroying storyline until it is actually done.
I am reminded when people were moaning about Mighty's sister in that same SU arc. When she told Mighty to go away and that she didn't care for him, people were livid. How dare he toy with Mighty like that and give him a bad ending? I told them to calm down and things would be good in the end, and it was.
So you can say you don't like seeing Bunnie supposedly going traitor, just don't go and call Ian the next Hitler for making it a fact if we don't know that it is yet, and all evidence points to the contrary.
