    100%. Stern would have been better served figuring out a more prominent replacement, in order to make the story more compelling to readers. While, Ned was not a fit for the clues left and had a lame end, I had zero emotional investment or intrigue about Kingsley.

I've always wondered why it was such a big mystery once we knew he had that twin brother. That explains away any incidents where Roderick could potentially have an alibi.

Reverend Meteor (I guess watching soap operas has inured me to expecting this sort of twist)

Also Roderick did use his twin to scout things out when he was punked by Phil the fake Hobgoblin. So that element of the character is gone now, but the brainwashing of doppelgangers remains.

Frankly with the fall of SHIELD, Kingsley should see about raiding SHIELD weapons caches for LMDs. He could use LMD copies of himself in his place rather then brainwashed dupes who always succumb to fear before they get killed.
