I imagine that Whedon will probably write him a bit like Spike in Buffy. And Spike proved to be popular with audiences, partly because of his personality.
This right here explains it for me: Spike = Namor/QS.
If that's the tone Whedon's going for with Pietro, then score. That's exactly what I want.
