Mr. Thomas and Miller are two "human" businessmen who made a brief appearance in Sonic the Comic Issue 21. The duo worked as image consultants for Dr. Robotnik on the Egg Fortress, recommending that the doctor undergo a complete make-over so that the public might perceive him in a more flattering light. As Mr. Thomas put it: "The people just don't like you, man!" Robotnik, of course, didn't care if his subjects liked him or not and sent Thomas and Miller running out of his office in a storm of thrown books and stationery. Despite this, Robotnik did heed their words and transformed into the Robotnik that would be recognisable for the next few years.
