Summary

Story One

"Some Enchantra Evening: Chapter Two" - Part One

Sonic the Hedgehog, possessed by the power of Enchantra, prepares to tear his way through Sabrina Spellman, Sally Acorn, and NICOLE. Before he can do anything, Sabrina teleports him away. Sally objects to her methods and they begin to bicker, but Sabrina's cat -- Salem -- steps in and suggests that they work together. They talk about their situation and Sabrina soon realizes that Enchantra must be behind Sonic's brainwashing. 

Enchantra and her secretary Della use their new computer technology to find Sonic on Mount Everest. Enchantra establishes a mental link with Sonic and instructs him to head back to Westbridge and destroy it. Meanwhile, NICOLE detects Sonic heading towards Sabrina's high school. Sabrina teleports there, not hearing Sally as she tries to warn her about something else NICOLE detected.

Sabrina trips Sonic as he speeds by the school and asks him to stay still so she can reverse Enchantra's spell. Instead, he dizzies Sabrina with his super speed and creates an air vacuum, suffocating her. With the last of her energy, Sabrina casts a spell to place a tree in Sonic's path. He runs straight into the tree and knocks himself out just as Sabrina passes out from exhaustion.

"Some Enchantra Evening: Chapter Two" - Part Two

Enchantra and Della are confused by their inability to contact Sonic when Sally and Salem arrive in their domain. NICOLE explains to Enchantra that Sally followed Sonic through a portal left on Mobius. Since the portal remains open, the villains of Mobius could find their way to Enchantra. Sally threatens to broadcast the location of the portal on Mobius TeleVision and Enchantra is outraged at the prospect of Sonic's villains coming to her world.

Sonic and Sabrina arrive in Enchantra's realm; Sonic is raring to pay back Enchantra for hijacking his brain, but Sally urges him to remain calm. She asks to be sent back to Mobius, but Enchantra refuses since it won't allow her to get back at Sabrina for humiliating her. Sabrina argues that they should settle this amongst themselves. Enchantra agrees and sends Sally, Sonic and NICOLE back to Mobius with no memory of their adventure in Westbridge.

With their visitors gone, Enchantra explains to Sabrina that she was insulted when Sabrina typed her name as "N. Chantra" for a school report. Sabrina fibs, saying that she couldn't properly express her magnificence to mortals. Despite the day being saved, Salem is upset that he never got Sonic to autograph his comics. Back on Mobius, Sonic, Sally and NICOLE wake up with no memory of their adventure. Sonic forgets about having wanted to spend time with Sally and is pumped up for a new adventure.

Story Two

"Zone Wars: A Tale of Two Hedgehogs"

On Anti-Mobius, the Anti-Freedom Fighters are frustrated that they can't break into Dr. Kintobor's clinic. Kintobor solemnly plans to send his SWEEPbots to clean up the Great Forest before it becomes a polluted wasteland like Mobotropolis. The Anti-Freedom Fighters bicker, having been bored since the king was thrown into the Zone of Silence. Thinking that Anti-Sonic has lost his killer edge, the group abandons him. Anti-Sonic vows revenge, but a mysterious figure suggests that they can accomplish greater things.

On Mobius Prime, Sonic, the Knothole Freedom Fighters and Amy Rose are having a relaxing picnic. Suddenly, Zonic appears before the group and takes Sonic to his base in the No Zone. There, Zonic explains that Anti-Sonic has convinced the other Sonics across the multiverse to give him the pieces of the Giant Borg. Sonic asks which Zones Anti-Sonic hasn't taken a piece of the Borg from. Zonic takes Sonic to the only Zone whose Sonic hasn't relinquished his piece of the Borg. Sonic and Zonic drop in on an alternate Sonic, his brother Manic, and his sister Sonia as they play a song. The alternate Sonic tells them that he doesn't even know what the Giant Borg is. Zonic is baffled, having been certain that he had called every Sonic in reality to fight the Borg. Sonic chides Zonic for messing up his job while Zonic asks the group about their lives and world.

The siblings explain that, shortly after they were born, Dr. Robotnik turned Mobotropolis into Robotropolis and roboticized the citizens. Their mother, Queen Aleena, hid from Robotnik with her children until the Oracle of Delphius prophesied that she would need to send her children to live with others for their own safety. The queen sent Sonic to live with Uncle Chuck, Manic with a thief named Farrell, and Sonia with the aristocrat Lady Windimere. They grew up, eventually met and formed a band, and the Oracle revealed their history to them. Robotnik then roboticized their adoptive guardians and the group went underground, becoming the resistance against Robotnik and hoping to one day reunite with their mother.

Meanwhile, Anti-Sonic drops the pieces of the Giant Borg at the feet of the Underground Zone's Dr. Robotnik. Anti-Sonic demands his reward, but Robotnik orders his lackeys -- Sleet and Dingo -- to prepare him for roboticization. While Anti-Sonic cries betrayal, his mysterious benefactor lurks in the shadows and is disappointed Anti-Sonic mistook an alternate zone counterpart for his employer. Deciding to cut his losses, he leaves the Zone without Giant Borg and prepares to launch his assault on Sonic.

The Underground Robotnik launches Giant Borg and begins attacking the city of Robotropolis to find the resistance and crush it. The heroes quickly work out a plan: the Zone's native Sonic distracts Robotnik and leads him out of the city. Robotnik launches a hedgehog-seeking missile just as Zonic and the Prime Sonic teleport into Robotnik's cockpit. Both Sonics and Zonic gang up on Robotnik and pull him through the portal, leading the missile to the Giant Borg's cockpit and destroying it.

The group heads to the dungeons and grab Anti-Sonic so Zonic can take him to prison. In the No Zone, Zonic reports to his superiors in the Zone Cop Corps on his mission, showing them that the Underground Zone's Robotnik has been left to fight another day and that the Prime Sonic has returned home to his friends. Before he can leave his base, Anti-Sonic demands that he explain what happened in his home zone. Zonic informs him that Anti-Geoffrey has taken over the Anti-Freedom Fighters, causing Anti-Sonic to pass out in horror.
