At the time, Sonic had turned into Super Sonic and was content with letting the Hill Top folk die. Tails tried begging Super to help, but Super didn't care. Tails then goaded Super Sonic into action by implying that Super couldn't do anything to stop the volcano, and so Super proved him wrong by flying around the lava eruption at supersonic speed. The speed cocoon cooled the molten rock until it solidified, which Sonic had moulded into a statue of himself. The Seismotron was likely destroyed by the eruption it had triggered.
