Not very well, as others have observed.

Because not once has my arguement been 'Panther is too strong, too cool', or some other self justifying (on the part of Hudlin) rant. Rather, my arguements are that Hudlin lessens Panther with his attempts at making Panther stronger. It's not that Hudlin is making Panther stronger that bothers me, rather, it's the fact that he's not doing the job right!

Seems to me that's a bit too abstract for Hudlin supporters to really wrap their minds around.

...since a good majority of Hudlin's detractors, especially on this board, do so while asking for the return of Priest (another black writer), it seems even less of a "racial" issue.
