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.

It isn't so much that one character was a jerk. I'm a fan of USAgent and Dr. Druid, after all.

The rest of the team didn't really seem to mind that much. Nightcrawler noticed, because he had the hots for Meggan, but the other girls didn't seem much to care.

Call me old fashioned, but sharing a bed with one woman, while openly pursuing another, against the wishes of the first goes a bit beyond "jerk", IMHO.

Combine this with the wierd Courtney Ross stuff, and just how much of Cross Time Caper was wasted time (to say nothing of the TERRIBLE fill in issue with that Kree Eternal), and it just seems like a run of comics that I wouldn't miss all that much if they weren't there.

I'm not quite through Cross-Time Caper yet, so I'm still on the fence.
