For instance Magneto's time in Dachau concentration camp. you could see that dude being royally pissed the &^%$ off at humans, but Apoc... i got nothing! which brings me to i beg to differ "Count of Monty Cadavers" while that is true the basic premise of a good character needs to be there from the start. Eddie Brock was a steroid using goon who was pissed that parker expose him. Huh! come on man! it was just an excuse for that 90's black outfit people were so caught up on! that dude sucked from day one!maybe he's gotten better cause i stopped reading or caring about that dude when he started showing up fighting Iron Man. i think the initial character and motivation needs to be there for a good character and i know... CATMAN!
( but tell me you read any of that dude's stories till he got bad ass? hehe
I read when he was a loser woman beater and Green Arrow kicked his ass.
Anyway, that proves my point. Just because they start off s**t, doesn't mean they stay that way. All it takes is one writer, to take this lump of coal, and make it into a diamond. NO BAD CHARACTERS! Just Rob Leifields
