So all the talk as of late about The Killing Joke reminded me of something. Specifically, I've seen the whole "one bad day" talk elsewhere, perhaps as a sort of homage or tribute? But not in anything as dark or grim as the source material...

Here are two pages from Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog #172. Fiona, a relatively new member of the Freedom Fighters, has shown her true colors, revealing that she's been cheating on Sonic (something that's a non-issue nowadays, mind) and further breaking Tails' heart due to her affection towards Scourge the Hedgehog.

Scourge, for those who don't know, was originally the "Anti" or "Evil" Sonic from a mirror dimension (read: "Zone") who had been hanging around Sonic's world for longer than usual as of late. He tried to get a boost of energy from the Master Emerald, perhaps even go Super, but was interrupted in the process by a fierce blow from Locke, the pre-reboot father of Knuckles the Echidna.

The result seemingly left his appearance in a mid-transformative state (blue to green to yellow), and with a couple of scarred claw marks across his chest, courtesy of Locke.

In the time since, Fiona found that Scourge is basically whatever she might have liked about Sonic, but tweaked into something more "her", bringing us to this moment:





Anyway, I don't know how common referencing the whole "One Bad Day" thing outside of Batman is, but I couldn't help but think about this and figured now would be a good time to share.
