Shard x Nicole (Sonic Universe 50) by herms85 Shard x Nicole (Sonic Universe 50) by herms85
Here we go! Former Metal Sonic Shard and Nicole... So this is a pairing, apparently. And it's adorable! These pages are from early in this extra long issue - nicely setting up some Shard and Nicole friendship - as well as the villainy of Metal Sonic and the total bad-ass-ness of Shard rocketing in to confront his "little brother." Great stuff!

Pages appearing in Sonic Universe #50, published by Archie Comics.

Hope you guys enjoy!

Nicole has never really showed ANY interest towards Shard. She only cared for him because he was about to destroyed by Metal Sonic because he was a friend. Shard is supposedly the same original Metal Sonic that tried to kill Sonic and his friends. In a sane mind, this would cause some distrust to him and all the Freedom Fighters, including Nicole. Even when he said he went clean he would still be distrusted. I would only call these two a lovely couple, IF these two had any romantic or tenderness moments together, like REAL kissing and  hugging, but I never saw anything of that, sorry. It's too much of a lame clone pairing of Sonally anyway. And you Herms, failed to see how bad the writing is because of Flynn.

Will Shard be coming back in the comics? Do you know?

Nicole and Shard are just too easy and mundane. A robot and a computer program coming together and bonding over their learning about humanity, particular ly when they wind up mimicking the Sonic/Sally relationship. Tails and Nicole would be the more entertaining coupling I think, precisely because their inexperience would cause them to head down odd roads.

I want Shard to return in the reboot. Even if you change up his color scheme or design, at least keep his personality. Maybe as a renegade prototype of Metal's current personality program.
