    both stories were entirely plot driven with little regard to the natures of the characters, and you're right. This is a problem that pervades the comic industry right now. I'm not really sure when the change over occurred but a medium that used to be all about characters with sometimes silly plots is now all about plot with often silly character actions.


And something I've been saying for years now. The sign of a GOOD writer is one who can adjust his story to suit the characters he is hired to write for.


The sign of an ignorant, and unwarrantedly arrogant writer is one who tries to change the characters to suit his story. Why THESE "writers" are catered to is beyond me.
