: Some good points on Dwayne not being as

: bigger, the plots more elaborate and i think
: some ID with the characters was lost..
: Dwayne still had strong potential..and I
: dont think his breaking free of his

: was a young man growing into a Man and that
: seemed to be happening up until his last
: depictions where he didnt seem like a leader
: anymore...for shame on marvel IMO.
: many people thought of Dwayne as Bat man
: lite...I never saw him this way.
: I saw him more as a YOUNG version of tony
: Stark..he was designing NT armor..Nova's
: armor , etc..and a smart guy. The angst and
: anger did not need to define him.
Oh I agree with you, he certainly was a viable character afterwards. NW 1-25 was basically his story, and he was the driving force behind the book at the time. (For the record, I really liked NW through issue 40 or so.)
But there was never great followup with Dwayne as to why he'd still want to be a superhero. I can understand regaining control of his company and cleaning it up, but the actual hero work didn't seem to be a large factor in his life afterwards, other than he still did it.
