If only because he seems to write the Montoya developments without really filling in what happened before.

My favorite bit with Montoya is the idea that SHADE wants Montoya on their side. In old Kirby issues, the enforces of OMAC were the "Faceless", a group of individuals who had a Question-like face. I'd love to see Renee as the person who starts the faceless group.
