What if Chris tried suing someone for "stealing" Sonichu from him?
He wouldn't be able to since Sonichu wasn't even entirely his own original idea since it's a mash up of Sonic and Pikachu. If anything Chris should be the one who gets sued for stealing already existing characters.
What if Chris switched bodies with Clyde Clash?

Clyde would leak EVERYTHING Chris has while Chris himself would either shit himself and do nothing or be too busy laughing at how much of a "freak" he is.

What if Sonichu was always a troll magnet? And has been since issue 0?

You can't copyright a character, you can only copyright a specific expression of it.

For example, Nintendo has copyright on the Pokemon games. It doesn't have copyright on the Pikachu character. (Now, if they hired someone to draw Pikachu, then they'd have copyright on that drawing.)

(And, of course, trademarks are a separate issue.)

As far as this applies to Sonichu, Chris has copyright on the Sonichu comics because he was literally the person who put pen to paper and drew the original comics. He is the author of Sonichu, thus he holds the copyright. Because Chris holds the copyright, you need his permission to publish Sonichu.

Now, some parts of the comics could be derivative works because they incorporate stuff that Chris didn't make. But all that means is that Chris can't publish Sonichu himself without permission of the people he ripped off. But it works down the ladder too. You can't publish Sonichu without Chris' permission.

Chris can legally shut you down if you publish Sonichu, because it's his work. He has a valid copyright on it. But that doesn't mean he has the right to publish Sonichu either.

What if Chris brought back attraction signs but instead of them advertising the fact he exists, they were about his Blarms campaign?

Then people wouldn't find him creepy anymore but rather just stupid.
What if Chris got a package which was a box full of fanart of Sonichu ... with blue arms?

What if Chris lived under your bed when you were a kid?
Chris wouldn't hide under kids beds, he would hide under boyfriend free girls beds in an attempt to make love with them.
What if Michael Snyder lost his house in a fire and was forced to move in with Chris untill it was fixed?
