Another thing that frustrates me about Excalibur is Courtney Ross. She's vaporized and replaced by evil nazi Saturnyne (or Sat R9, or something), and then goes on to act exactly like Courtney Ross did anyway.

And speaking of Courtney Ross, what is Captain Britain doing sharing a bed with Meggan, and dating her at the same time? The more I think about it, the more I think a good portion of my Excalibur run is going to end up in my "to sell" pile...

Eh, characters being pigheaded isn't necessarily a reason to sell a series, imo. Things like Brian dating Courtney while being with Meggan just shows what a jerk he is. He was an all-around jerk in Excalibur (and not that he could blame it on the alcohol, either).

But the practically dropped Sat-Yr-9 plot was egregious. It wouldn't get resolved until #50-something, and not very well, imo.

It gets much, much worse later (in the 2000s, after Meggan was believed dead)... when Brian again starts dating Courtney Ross as if all is cool. WTF? So much for Brian swearing to bring Sat-Yr-9 to justice.
