Sonic the Hedgehog (IDW comics)

Dr. Eggman decided to rebuild Heavy King to take command of his army of Badniks, but once again he went rogue and attempted to take down his master. Metal Sonic prevented Heavy King from delivering a killing blow, but this didn't stop him. The King then reprogrammed Metal Sonic, Metal Knuckles and Tails Doll to obey his orders instead of Eggman's. The doctor was kicked out of his own base of operations in Winter Caverns Zone, and had to hire Bark, Fang, and Bean to help defeat Heavy King. Both Heavy King and Eggman's team went after the Chaos Emeralds in a mad dash for ultimate power, with Sonic and his friends caught in the middle. Through the use of Eggman's robots, Heavy King managed to obtain all seven of the Emeralds. Sonic and Eggman were forced to work together to stop the King before he could become an ultimate robot overlord. Dr. Eggman managed to regain control of his robots and Sonic did what he does best to stop the King. The Hard Boiled Heavy was defeated and decided to return to Eggman's side as a loyal minion. Eggman then gave Heavy King a software patch in an attempt to ensure he doesn't betray him again.[3]

On Dr. Eggman's birthday, Heavy King led the other Badniks into battle against Sonic and Tails to give their creator the thing he wanted most, Sonic's head. Once Eggman saw what they were doing, he rushed out to the battlefield before things got started to stop his robots. He knew that they were unprepared to beat Sonic and were not ready for battle. Heavy King led the troops back to base, saddened that they upset their creator. Eggman told them that having them around is adequate, but they could all be replaced at any moment. Heavy King then ordered the other robots to bring out the cake in order to change the mood in the room.[4]
