Anyone an Apollo fan? I think he's awesome but I really hate how poorly he can be written.

I like him, but i don't think they ever really explored his character like they did with others from the Authority.

If a hero is going to be covered from the neck down, then give him so layers to his outfit, not just a regular spacesuit, Like Gambit

I kinda liked that Ellis pretty much treated the team equally. He gave eveyone great moments Apollo seemed more like a powerhouse when Ellis wrote it.

I'm really liking Apollo in the current series. He's less present now but when he shows up it's not something to ignore. It's either oldschool @sskicking (something that only he can do on a grand scale now) or something emotional, either way it's significant, good for the story and character development. He's not just a borderline background character anymore, his page time is not wasted. He's actually the powerhouse of the team now (however little he gets to show it). He was one of them before, but the Doctor and Jenny (even Sparks) always seemed to play the part better in my mind, and he had pretty basic powers (strength and blasting) so Engineer could always get ahead of him in the hierarchy of power if she wanted since she had so much variety. With the Doc and Jenny missing and Engineer depowered, he's it.

I didn't like how he lashed out at Kyle because of his husband's fight with him. Other than that he's cool.

I really like him though I like Midnighter more. He seems really cool and nice balance to Midnighter's violent and gritty attitude and methods. Just kind of wish he got a little more focus.
