I like a lot Morrison's work (I love his Doom Patrol run).
So, it is hard for me to criticize him.

Nevertheless, "Doctor Hurt" does not seem to have a lot of charisma.
From start to finish, "Doctor Hurt" 's behaviour has only been the one of a Doppelganger or a Copycat.

Maybe, was it done on purpose ?

I said that everything leads to him being the Devil because if you read all the comments, it fits, but we are far from the usual portrayal of Satan ...
