You're going to think I'm nuts, but it almost seems like elements of Dwayne AND Donyell are present in one body. Even when he was talking with Sil, it seemed as though it was a combination of Dwayne and Donyell. When he was fighting Midnight's Fire, however, it was pure Dwayne.
: Is it just me, or does he seem like an
: entirely different character now than he did
: as Bandit? I don't just mean changes in
: attitude--that can be logically assumed as
: character growth, in dealing with Dwayne's
: death and carrying on his legacy, etc.
: I admit that I'm not the biggest Bandit
: expert in the world, so maybe I missed
: something--but it seems to me like a lot of
: his backstory and personality has been
: re-written in this series.
: In some issues he has talked about things
: their father taught him and Dwayne. As I
: recall, Bandit was the result of a one-night
: stand and never even MET his father. He
: talks about the brotherly bond between
: himself and Dwayne...but from what I recall,
: the two of them were never close, and at
: best were grudging allies. Etc, etc.
: His talk with Silhouette about their
: relationship also seemed full of revisionist
: history--Bandit accuses her of being too
: changeable in her emotions and betraying
: Dwayne...but it was always Dwayne's
: emotional baggage that kept him and Sil
: apart. First it was Dwayne's guilt over
: getting Sil shot, later it was his anger
: over learning she was still connected to her
: brother's old gang, etc. Bandit/Grevioux
: make it sound like Sil was unfaithful, but
: Sil and Dwayne were actually broken up at
: the time she and Bandit got together, and it
: was a more complicated situation than that.
: (personally, I was always a little disturbed
: at Sil falling in love with the man who
: kidnapped and assaulted her...but
: "cheating" on Dwayne? Yeah,
: It just feels to me like Grevioux is
: re-writting Bandit's history and personality
: to make him more like Dwayne, because Dwayne
: is the character he really wants to be
: writing. Any thoughts?
