This article is on the main planet Mobius located in the Prime Zone. For other Mobiuses see Zones.

Mobius is the homeworld of the Mobians and humans and it is the main setting of the comics and where the majority of events take place. Much of the world is governed by the United Federation which is itself led by the President, while some territories are under the control of the Eggman Empire. However even territories that are not completely controlled by the Eggman Empire have bases stationed within them which are run by Egg Bosses.

Mobius

A map of Mobius with a legend.

Mobius (also known as Mobius Prime, due to its place in the multiverse) was actually a future version of Earth, and according to this universe's timeline, Earth's year would be approximately 14,017 CE, with Mobius' calendar year at mid-late 3237. It is still unknown exactly what was the starting point for their calendar, but its was likely calculated using what the Echidna Tomes call the Days of Fury. Mobius has endured many conflicts, including the Great War, the first and second Robotnik Wars, and a failed attack by the Xorda. Much of it was also under the control of the Eggman Empire, though some sections of it remained free from its tyranny.

History

Two Memories

Sonic recalls two different histories- the original one and the rewritten one.

Mobius has experienced two separate timelines with differing histories. The current timeline was brought about due to a phenomenon known as the Genesis Wave: in the original Prime Zone timeline, Dr. Eggman launched this reality-changing wave twice, within a few weeks of each other, during the year 3237. While the first instance was reversed by Super Sonic with no noticeable ill-effects, the second instance would in fact mark the end of that timeline, as during the period in which the planet was reset, the super-powered "Super Genesis Wave" was launched, which, if pulled off successfully, would reshape the world in Dr. Eggman's image. Super Sonic's attempt to reverse this highly delicate process was disrupted by Eggman, and this resulted in all of reality being altered into the timeline seen now.

Before the Wave

After the Wave

From a readers point of view, everything from here on picks up from where the original timeline ended.
  • Sonic blanks out for a moment, then awakens again with memories of Worlds Collide and with his memories of the old timeline. Tails memories of the old timeline also returned after coming into contact with NICOLE. With the Tails Doll defeated, and Naugus out of the way (who exited Castle Acorn in a blind horror after his own memories of the old timeline began to return), Sonic and Tails freed King Acorn from his imprisonment, before setting out on a new adventure to round up the separated Freedom Fighters, and to defragment Nicole by using her to restore the Freedom Fighters memories. Elsewhere, Eggman, Orbot and Cubot, also having just returned from the events of Worlds Collide, crash-land somewhere in the Efrika plains. The group begin their effort to get back to Death Egg in order to find out what's happening to their world. (#252)
  • Sonic and Tails venture to the Mystic Ruins where they meet Big the Cat and, soon after, are reunited with Rotor, who was next to have his memories of the old world return after coming into contact with Nicole. Providing the duo with their next lead, they set out to Knothole Village. Back in the Efrika plains, Eggman and his lackies finally run into some help, in the form of the Efrika Egg Army, led by Egg Boss Axel the Water Buffalo. (#253)
  • Sonic and Tails venture to the Wood Zone, where they are reunited with Uncle Chuck and Antoine, meeting Ben Muttski in the process. Antoine has his memories restored, but Chuck and Muttski do not. Antoine gives Sonic and Tails the location of where Bunnie was: the Metropolis Zone. Meanwhile, Eggman arrives in Avalon and gains the aid of Lord Hood, converting his Egg Mobile into an Egg Walker for storming a G.U.N. Base before leaving. (StH #254)
  • Sonic and Tails link up with Bunnie in the Metropolis Zone and obtain a shield generator for the Sky Patrol. Meanwhile Eggman meets with Tundra the Walrus of the Artika Egg Army and obtains transportation back to the Death Egg Mark 2. (StH: #255)
Mobius Tears Itself Apart

Mobius tears itself apart as a result of the rewritten reality.

  • Amy Rose and Cream return to Mobotropolis in time to help rescue Sally from a chasing Metal Sonic. Sonic and Tails return to defeat the robot. Both girls regain their memories in time for a horrible revelation: the Super Genesis Wave has caused the multiverse to collapse on itself (and then recreated) and Mobius, unable to contain the Chaos energies from it, shatters into pieces. (StH: #256)
  • Angel Island is rattled by the shattering of the world, Chaos is pulled from the Master Emerald and into the ocean below, and a mysterious force instructs Knuckles to search for a "spirit" that would help to restore the world. Knuckles leaves Relic the Pika to guard the Master Emerald in his absence. (SU: #63)
  • G.U.N. begins Operation: Triage to deal with the situation of the planet breaking apart. Meanwhile the Black Arms, now led by Black Death, return to the solar system in the New Black Comet to consume the planet. Commander Abraham Tower sends Team Dark and Spider Troupe to the comet to destroy it with a nuclear bomb. During their mission, the group run afoul of Black Death and Eclipse the Darkling, Shadow briefly falls victim to Black Death's mind control, and Spider Troupe are captured with the intention of being made into the eventual first meal for the Dark Arms, before being rescued. Soon, Shadow manages to hunt down Black Death and slay him in their final battle, before the nuke is detonated, blowing up the comet. Eclipse the Darkling, however, manages to escape the blast by fleeing in an escape saucer. (SU: #59, #60, #61, #62)
  • The Freedom Fighters begin a rescue operation in a heavily hit Station Square. Meanwhile, Eggman learns of Professor Pickle and his research of the Gaia Manuscripts. This leads to him kidnapping the professor, along with Uncle Chuck. (StH: #257)
  • The Freedom Fighters track the kidnapped professors to the Soleanna Forest Zone, where they are being held aboard the moving Egg Train. After Sonic defeats Badnik horde commander E-107 Eta, the professors are rescued and taken back to the Sky Patrol, leaving their research, and the Gaia Manuscripts, in the hands of Eggman. (StH: #258, #259)
  • After days of searching through the Sky Rail Zone and Pumpkin Hill Zone, Knuckles is attacked by a horde of Dark Gaia monsters, before the Chaotix show up to assist him. He agrees to help in their mission from Princess Sally to find the Chaos Emeralds. After running afoul of the Hooligans, the group track down the spirit, a skittish, amnesiac little creature, whom Charmy names "Chip", and a red Chaos Emerald in the Aquatic Mine. During Knuckles absence, Eclipse the Darklings escape saucer lands in the Mushroom Hill Zone. Relic and Fixit head out to investigate, only to find a mysterious black and red root from the ground. (SU: #62, #63, #64, #65, #66)
  • The Knothole Freedom Fighters begin their hunt for Gaia Temples and Chaos Emeralds: Sonic, Amy and Rotor are sent to the underwater city of Meropis to find a Gaia Temple. Down there, they gain the aide of Razor, Coral and Pearly. After fighting off Dark Gaia's Minions, the group discover that Chaos is the one keeping the oceans from draining from the shattered planet. They return to the Sky Patrol without uncovering a Gaia Temple. Meanwhile, Sally, Tails, Antoine and Nicole venture into the Crystal Cave to snag a Chaos Emerald that the Egg Army had been mining for. The group successfully evade hazards and return to the Sky Patrol with the emerald. (StH: #260, #261, #262, #263)
  • After Knuckles and the Chaotix successfully rescue Chip from the Hooligans, he's taken to the safety of Angel Island, and the Chaotix agree to let Knuckles hold on got to the Chaos Emerald until the Knothole Freedom Fighters have gathered the other six. While on the Island, it is revealed by Tikal that he is in fact Light Gaia. (SU: #66)
  • Tracking Eclipse after his escape, Team Dark arrive on Angel Island to hunt down the alien. Knuckles reluctantly agrees to aide in their search, leaving Shadow and Relic to guard the Master Emerald, only for Eclipse himself to appear to the both of them. (SU: #67)
  • Sonic, along with Sally and Amy, reunite with Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel in the Rocky Jungle Zone, where they team up to retrieve the grey Chaos Emerald from an Egg Army digging site. They raid the area only to be caught in an electrical field where they are paralysed. The stress of the situation causes Sonic to finally tip over the edge and become the Werehog. StH: #264)

Prehistoric

Nearly 12,000 years ago, during the 21st century of the "old world" when Mobius was still known as "Earth", an alien race known as the Xorda came to the planet to offer an alliance to its human population. However, the emissary they dispatched was captured, studied and subsequently dissected by a group of scientists led by Ivan Kintobor, a leading scientist at the time. Ivan had hoped to use the captured alien and its technology to produce the robot Isaac as well as numerous other creations. His methods however proved antagonistic towards the Xorda. In retaliation, the aliens bombarded the planet with Gene Bombs with the intention of exterminating all life on the planet, melting all surface life into primordial ooze. Before the destruction of the planet's biosphere, however, a number of hidden cities were constructed, safe from the effects of the Gene Bombs. The bombs had an unforeseen side effect however. Rising from the primordial soup, DNA from the former human population formed the four-fingered Overlanders seen on Mobius today, while the rest of the animal kingdom also experienced a rapid evolution from interaction with human DNA, forming modern-day Mobians. (StH: #124, #148; SSM: #1)

Early History

Approximately 10,000 years ago, the planet suffered a massive environmental cataclysm. The Gene Bombs were supposed to preserve Earth's environment as it was when it was attacked. However, their interaction with the planet caused massive volcanic reactions, earth quakes, and massive storms, hurling billions of tons of ash and dirt into the air. This is what is chronicled as the First Day of Fury in Echidna theology. (StH: #148)

How the echidnas would have records of this time is unknown, as Mobians were still in very primitive stages or not around at all yet. It is possible they learned of this event from geographical remnants of the events, or they located records of it left over from the destroyed Earth's population.

Shortly after this cataclysm, the event known as the Coming of the Chaos Emeralds occurred. Mysteriously, the green Chaos Emeralds reigned down on the planet from the sky. This resulted in dramatic global weather changes, eventually causing the extinction of the Mobosaurs. However, it also gave rise to the omnipotent beings known as the Ancient Walkers and provided immortality to Mammoth Mogul, when one of the descending Chaos Emeralds embedded itself in his chest. It also allowed the Mobo-sapiens, known more simply as Mobians, to become the new dominant race on the planet. (StH: #148, TMS: #3, SMM)

The "Gene Bomb" origin theory provided by Isaac is considered to be false as other evidence in the comics is contradictory to this. However, all other historical accounts are considered canon, as there is no contrary evidence to these events happening.

The Days of Fury continued to affect Mobius for thousands of years, right up to modern day. The Echidna Tomes describe them as "natures way of adjusting to environmental changes it undergoes over a certain duration" according to Athair. Prior to the Day of Fury which happened in the year 3235, Athair stated the last recorded Day of Fury happened some "twelve hundred years ago". (KtE: #10)

At some point in time, the early dragons were supposedly born in the Dragon Kingdom region of Mobius. The dragons warred amongst themselves for generations, until they realized the destruction wrought on the land. After this the various dragons settled throughout Mobius. Mobius' early history also saw the rise of two more super-powerful beings connected to the Chaos Force: Aurora and Enerjak, who were formerly research scientists in Albion. Sadly, Enerjak became corrupted by his powers, and Aurora and the Ancient Walkers were forced to scatter his being throughout the Chaos Force. (SU: #13, CSE)

Approximately 9,700 years ago, the Echidnas were already well developed in their colony of Albion. The Albion Knights of Aurora found themselves defending the planet against the wizard caste known as the Order of Ixis, which was bent on world domination and was subservient to their founder Mammoth Mogul. Events in the war included the appearance of Mutates, the invention of cybernetics, the mutation of the Tasmanian Devils, and the rise of the second Enerjak. Despite the Order's incredible powers, the Albion Knights successfully defeated Mogul during the Forgotten War, effectively wiping out all of the Order of Ixis. However, Mogul and three later disciples, Agunus, Nusgau, and Suguna, survived the Forgotten War. The latter three wizards eventually merged to form the individual wizard Ixis Naugus thousands of years later. It was also during the Forgotten War that monstrous creatures of various species, collectively known as Mutates, began to appear across the planet, though in limited numbers. (StH: #66, #67, #163, CSE)

The 300 year period between the Coming of the Chaos Emeralds and the Forgotten War is based off Mammoth Mogul's look when he was 300 years old, depicted in the Mecha Madness special, due to him having the same look during the Forgotten War depicted in StH: #163. This is only a rough estimate.

Developing Societies

Approximately 1,000 years ago, Dave, an Echidna from Albion, ventured out into space, exploring Jupiter and its moon Europa on his ship the Monolith. The Echidnas made other advances down through history as well, one group going so far as to leave Albion in order to resettle elsewhere. After briefly stopping in Soumerca, where two factions of the colony effort-the Knuckles and Nocturnus Clans-broke off to fight for the land they hoped to claim, the other group settled in Downunda, where they built the city of Echidnaopolis. (KtE: #12, #30, CSE)

Approximately 600 years ago, a White Comet hurling towards Echidnaopolis was discovered by the Echidna scientists Jordann and Kayla-La. Using their knowledge of the Chaos Emeralds, the two scientists managed to use the Chaos Emeralds' powers to lift their city into the sky, after the Fire Ants dug underneath the city to separate it from the continent — thus creating the Floating Island. Sadly, the Echidnas would face further troubles of their own, beginning when the scientist Dimitri attempted to return to the island to the surface using his Chaos Syphon, only to be driven mad. This would also lead to the creation of the office of Guardian among the Echidnas of the island. (StH: #34, #35, KMS #1 , #2, #3)

Meanwhile, the other Mobians learned from the Echidnas on how to structure themselves into societies. One Mobian, Alexander, decided to pool the various groups resources and knowledge together to form a single society. While the Overlanders proved too violent in nature to be included, and the Echidnas chose to exclude themselves from joining the group, the other Mobians pulled together and created Mobotropolis - the first multicultural city on the planet. (StH: #71)

Distant Future

Everything beyond this point has been effectively negated by the Super Genesis Wave.

Background Information

  • In recent issues, the book seems to be going to great lengths to avoid refering to the planet as Mobius. Most notably, the heading at the start of each issue, which originally began with "Welcome to the planet Mobius" has since been changed to "Welcome to Sonic's comic book adventures", and other instances where the planet's name would usually be mentioned is changed to simply "Sonic's World" instead. A recent post by Ian Flynn revealed that a SEGA mandate has stated that Sonic's world cannot be named, thus the name "Mobius" has been dropped. The reason is unknown, as is whether Mobius is still the name of the planet in universe.
    • Despite this change, other names that make reference to the planet's name, such as New Mobotropolis, are still retained.
  • The first map of Mobius shown in SSS #2 showed the "Land of a Million Lights" to be located in the "South Africa" part of the planet. However, the map shown in StH #194 located it where the Lethal Radioactive Zone from the first map was. The new map also listed Station Square in the location the Mysterious Cat Country was located on the older map, instead of just being located nearby. It is unknown if these were retcons or simply mistakes.
    • Oddly enough, most of the game-related zones mentioned or shown in the comics remain unspecified on either maps. Among them are Bingo Highway and Frog Forest from Sonic Heroes, Wild Canyon from Sonic Adventure 2, Sky Canyon from Sonic Advance 2, Club Rouge and Holy Summit (misspelled Holly Summit) from Sonic Battle, Windy Valley and Red Mountain from Sonic Adventure, and South Island from the classic titles.
  • The name Mobius may may be a reference to a shape known as the Möbius strip, a shape with no clear start or end that appears to have multiple sides, when in fact there is only one. This could be intended as a reference to the cyclical nature of species dominance on this alternate Earth / Mobius.
  • The name Moebius, which refers to the alternate version of Mobius from which Scourge hails, may be based off of Möbius syndrome, which is also spelled Moebius, an extremely rare congenital neurological disorder which is characterized by facial paralysis and the inability to move the eyes from side to side. This description could arguably characterize the distorted personas of Scourge and his Supression Squad as well.
  • According to a post by Ian Flynn, only three video games have not occured in the post-Super Genesis Wave world: Sonic Unleashed (as that is the current storyline), Sonic Lost World (which Ian says that he wants to deal with, but he can take his time to get there), and Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood (due to the ongoing litigation with Ken Penders and the fact that, storywise, it takes place two years into the future). Thus, unless contridicted in-story, it can be assumed that all video games are canon to the post-Super Genesis Wave world. This has been proven true as Sonic the Hedgehog #268 does an adaptation of Sonic the Fighters, one of the earlier games released in the Sonic game canon.


Year

  • The exact date of the Mobian calendar is unknown, but by day counting from Sonic's last birthday in StH: #160 , the first Genesis Wave was launched on day 184, 3237, and the second about nine days later. While it would have been 3238 had Sonic spent a full year in space, StH: #155 had Tails state he was still eleven, and in StH: #157 Dr. Eggman's computer monitor clearly showed the year as 3237.
  • It is unknown what year the early Sonic issues take place. However, StH #188 established that Sonic was eight-years-old when he first fought against the Super Special Sonic Search and Smash Squad, placing issues with them at 3228, but Tails would have been three and not old enough to be a freedom fighter. It is known that Dr. Robotnik was defeated in 3235 as he was said for have ruled for ten years, and the year 3236 came into being some time before StH #69, as Sonic officially turned 16 then. With the following information in mind, here is a rough estimate of what issues take place in what year:
    • Unknown: StH: #1 — #24
    • 3235: StH: #25 — #57
    • 3236: StH: #58 — #125
    • 3237: StH: #130 — #247
  • As of StH #148 (Mobian year 3237), Ivan Kintobor was born 12,010 years, 11 months, and two weeks ago, in the Earth calendar date June 6, 2006, putting Mobius' date at May 20, 14,017 CE.
  • It's currently unknown whether the date system still applies to the altered post-Super Genesis Wave universe.
