Metal Scourge is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a robotic duplicate of Scourge the Hedgehog, much like what Metal Sonic is to Sonic the Hedgehog. It was created by Dr. Eggman during his descent into madness. Having sent Metal Sonic to attack Sonic, only to find Scourge at Freedom HQ, Eggman decided to attack him instead. When Scourge commented that he was going to conquer Eggman’s empire anyway, Eggman immediately began construction of Metal Scourge, remarkably finishing in a matter of minutes, presumably by repainting and redecorating a spare Metal Sonic.
