Doug: We all know that Marvel Comics is renowned for its heroes' "feet of clay" issues. Today we'd just like to throw the door open for a discussion of our favorite good guys' and super-baddies' faults. Which characters had the best design, and which schticks have grown very tired? Are there personality flaws that were really important or hyped in the past (Silver and Bronze Ages) that have faded over time?
How about some of the physical issues, like befell the Thing (some among you spoke ill last week of the exo-skeleton's brief era, although I kind of liked it and felt the creators could have gotten quite a bit more mileage out of the idea) or Rogue? The inability to get physically close to another person is a pretty good plot device. Mental issues? Some of the telepaths at times had issues staying out of other people's heads. Let's hear what you have to say, and thanks in advance for sharing.
