What character are we talking about?
Quote:Because the Mandarin has never displayed anything like character depth EXCEPT IN BYRNE'S RUN.
Such as? Because the only personality I recall Byrne giving him is generically "regal", the sort of character who stands around looking down his nose at people. Busiek actually had him spell out his personality, desires, and philosophy in a very concise way. Stan Lee actually gave him an origin with heavy, layered subtext that implied all the things he was about.
