    When it happened to Moonstone a few years ago, who up to that point had been written as an extremely strong-minded person, I threw up my hands in disgust.


I think the reason she went insane is because Nicieza refused to make her truly good or evil. She walked that line for a long time and it was getting ridiculous. Having her go crazy, and putting her in a coma was a cheat in my opinion.

It was time to poop or get off the pot in regards to Moonstone's allegiance...but Fabe couldn't do it. Ellis said screw it and just made her pure evil...which to me undermines the work that Busiek and Nicieza had done with her for several years.

I guess Moonstone can't ever win...if she becomes good she loses her appeal, if she becomes evil she loses her complexity and if you have her straddling the fence she loses credibility. *Sigh*
