He's got a great costume, great name, is a street vigilante and yet has consistently failed to catch on...

Is it the actual Marc Spector/Steven Knight character(s), his lack of an interesting private identity or just poor writing?

Any thoughts? >:-|

In the past, I think it's just been poor writing. Currently, I think Charlie Huston is doing an OK job.

If I had to cite a flaw that was primarily character related, then I guess I'd have to say that I think the character suffers from having a pretty sub-par rogues gallery. Outside of Bushman and the Commission, he doesn't have any particularly strong or appealing recurring adversaries and I think it hurts the character.
