Painted is just an art style like any other style it has its pros and cons. Maybe the pretense comes from personal preconceived notions...
May very well be. Just a vibe I get... I am not saying that it is the creator's intention. I find that my tastes in art fall outside that of most fandom. I do not see the appeal of Jim Lee, Ryan Stegman or Nick Bradshaw, for instance, where a good deal of fans do.
So will DC ever actually get back to writing good stories instead of pumping out gimmick after gimmick? "Oh let's have a 0# month, no wait let's have WTF covers on every book, I know lets have a villain month!!!"
Scarlet Witch: "You're accusing me of things I did not do consciously."
What the hell was it when Cyclops killed Xavier then?! You can't say that was fully conscious! I could swallow all of the hypocrisy from Wolverine, Beast, Scarlet Witch & Cap if it was POINTED OUT IN THE NARRATIVE by someone!
It drives me nuts.
Is it just me or are the remaining Originals beginning to understand present-day Scott?
