    Ya, I call bullshit on Bendis's "love" theory.

    Let's use Hawkeye, for example, Brian clearly never understood on even the most basic level, what made him tick. Turned a great everyday man into a murderer.

    He used the characters he didn't bother to understand as cannon fodder and disposable parts for the characters he did like/ pointless plot devices. And the carnage his plots left in their wake ripped holes in the Marvel continuity because he was lazy and/or couldn't care less. There have been countless interviews with Brian Bendis where he pontificates as if the comic medium never existed before his arrival.

"Understanding" is a very subjective thing. Frankly though, I liked his Clint more than most other writers' Clint. The character had pretty much been on my s-list since West Coast Avengers. Bendis got me to like the guy for the first time in ages.

    Tell Tigra how much he loves her.

I don't recall his opinion on Tigra (other than he thinks she can beat Batman), but just because a writer does bad things to a character doesn't mean he/she loves that character. Sometimes it's dislike; other times it's apathy. Maybe he was just more interested in writing a cool Hood than give Tigra the justice she deserved.

Hey, were I a writer and had the chance, Squirrel Girl would be a blood pulp, and it's not because I loooooove her. It's because squirrelly things must die.
