    I'm fine with him:

    1. Being boring
    2. Being a cheap plot device
    3. Being dumb
    4. Being a man with horrible values
    5. Being someone we don't know very well
    6. Not being a protagonist in an ongoing series

    What I'm not fine with is:
    1. Him speaking (unless it's to blow something up)
    2. Making him a traditional hero
    3. Taking away his kingship

Yeah. Having him speak can only work temporarily. I'm not so concerned with him being a traditional hero. But we need to get in his head and understand him. Otherwise, it's better to just replace him with a big honking laser cannon. He's totally unnecessary unless he's blasting something with his voice.
