Either you're having fun with me or you know jack squat about Count Vertigo and you're going by a synopsis of a wikipedia article. Vertigo is faaar from Killer Moth territory. Hell, Vertigo is far from Firefly territory. Just because a character isn't super popular doesn't mean he or she sucks. What does he need? Hot Topic merchandise?
I know less than jack squat about him. It's not about popularity per se but new takes on characters is not always a bad thing. Marvels comic Blade character is horrible but movie blade awesome so much so that marvels keeps trying to make them more a like. Till you actually see how they portray them on screen your doing yourself a disservice by assuming it's going to be bad.
