Yeah I have said a few times that Ian can start an Arc out really well but he sputters out towards the end. I'm starting to question if he fully plans everything out before he goes at it and if he does is he changing his mind halfway through. If this is how Ian is going to continue, I would be worried if he writes a game and does something like this there too.
I've seen a lot of people defending this by saying "well you can't have the arc being too long (a la SWC)." Which, yeah I agree, you dont want it to drag on for too long but at the same time the way they built up NMS & NMO for the both of them to be defeated in one issue each seems really weak. With NMS/SNMS you had something really interesting but now I'm just gonna think "Well they just need to stall until Shadow gets there so he can 1 shot him" going forward.
Could have extended the arc by 2 issues, make the fight last longer with them trying to come up with a better plan then executing it... I doubt you would have had a lot of complaints at the end.
Yeah, We all know Sonic will win in the end but raise the stakes a bit and give us the impression that he might not win this time.
