Agreed. A period of denial is understandable and storysmart, maybe even easily forgivable. He didnt exactly throw his costume in the alleyway trashcan like a certain wallcrawler once did so his [herbfree] heart still seems true. But if he does not change his ways after this Bad Vlad Arc then he is not the respectable heroic figure he once was.
Similarly, it might be argued that Ororo deserves those adjective labels when it comes to helping her hubby. Yes? Does she really believe prolonged isolation from him is healthiest decision for either of them or does she just love being in the X-verse more? uhhhm... of course she does?
I miss my brother.
I wouldn't quite say those terms were applicable to Ororo. T'Challa asked her to trust him, and she's giving him the benefit of the doubt like any trusting, loving spouse would. And she surely loves him. We're talking about someone who was willing to give up her own life in Death's realm in order to save that of her husband. Now, its debated as to whether that trust was misplaced, but I wouldn't fault her just yet for giving T'Challa the opportunity he asked her for. After all, Luke Cage has done the same thing, for the moment anyway.
