What bothers me most is it's as if Bendis et al is saying that the character of MK in himself is not good enough; no Khonshu, current personalities not enough to get a job done, et al. He definitely needs more rivalries and strong arch villains, but I don't know what Marvel doesn't understand about working with what you have. It's not that I'm closed to change, but it seems obvious that some laziness or lack of inspiration seems to be going on when writers have to dramatically reshape the character in order to make it seem exciting... Spidey did well in the 90's (Clone Saga aside) because writers worked AROUND the character... Maximum Carnage, Death of the Vulture..etc............. now we get stuff like One More Day that doesn't work. Most Marvel characters are no different..... Upgrading is cool, downgrading can even be cool..completely making the character into something else and ignoring their strengths as lauded by fans is stupid..
