...just as we see today--and have seen since the early 90s--with 80% of Marvel's criminal antagonists, which represents hundreds, if not thousands, of bad guys.

It has nothing to do with the inherent value or powers of the GG. He's not Leap Frog. Thank God you're not a Marvel writer. 'The Griffin? He's just a big ugly cat with wings, and totally absurd!'

The Jester never had any super powers, but was a clever, intelligent, persistent, and very viable DD villain for decades.

Then the era of writer for enthusiasm/imagination for the Jester passed, and the poor Jester found himself yanked out as cannonfodder, which ended with CW, if in fact that was the first Jester and not the second.

The irony's a little too much for me, so read the below and say that, eh?

My position stands, Grey Gargoyle's a Silver Age guy in the modern world. Until writers do something with him to catch him up with the rest of the class, cannon fodder is all he's good for. It's hardly the end. Johns redeemed the Rogues. Who would have thought that possible following Underworld Unleashed?
