      I've been coming to the slow realization that "bad characterization" is subjective. I've been reading comics for about 25 years, and many of the characterizations I loved in my youth have changed dramatically in the past 10 - 15 years. In other words, what I would consider bad characterization is in fact the only characterization that newer readers know.

    Most of the exmaples you cite weren't "original" characterizations either.

With the exception of Monica Rambeau (who WAS introduced with the cited characterization), Unstable Molecule did not claim that they were the original characterizations, just better than the current/recent ones.
