    Sad thing is, half of what you point out was inevitable because of Bendis's inadequacies as a writer. No signs of effort or struggle... telling instead of showing... no strong emotions except anger or fear... motivations that are unrelatable or which make no sense... out of character behavior... all are classic Bendis.

Fair enough. He can be a good writer...but these indeed are often his weaknesses. The other 1/2 of the problem was the SJW motives of Marvel at this time and calling anyone who didn't like what they were doing Nazi's. I will say the concept had potential if done correctly and over time and not as a quick diversity "replacement".

    My one question is - Why do you say she's psychotic? That's a strong word. Did she try to kill someone?

The way her eyes are always looking. The way she talks. The way she shows little or no empathy for anyone else. She's so wooden in her personality that the holograms seem more human. She acts entitled and is not driven by remorse or to help others...only by her need for self validation by others.

    Incidentally, I'd been assuming she was 18. I knew she went to MIT and most people are 18 when they do that. I should have guessed she'd be on an accelerated schedule.

She might be 15...but I know they talked about her age in interviews...and had her as minor in their discussions...this is all based on Bendis wanting to do fan fiction and make Riri based on his own daughter.
