This sort of thing tends to happen not only because of the mentality you mentioned and the actually bad pages - yes, we have many of those but it's a wasp hive I'm not motivated to be touching anymore... - but also because of what I call "The VS Thread perspective".

If you look at certain powers from a VS Thread alone, even in a good character they may seem invincible. If you take them within the story however, it actually can be fitted. See how Homulily's 2-A stuff actually worked FOR the plot of Rebellion to happen instead of against it. While looking at it in threads it translates 95% of the time to "Passive Mindhaxgg" >>> Win. The BS aspect of it.

I don't *necessarily* blame those thoughts. But - and in accordance with what you just said, actual characters who have real effort put into them and their power NOT being the focus to them would get invariably lumped together in the "hypocritical" category, "how that factors in the plot" side of the story be damned.

@Dragon I'm of the same opinion.

That's precisely why I had to adress the "hypocrisy" thing, since said comment indirectly lumps a number of actually good characters/creators putting effort into the Suggs-category simply due to one power they have that may be insta-translated as "That's BULL!".

This sort of thing tends to happen not only because of the mentality you mentioned and the actually bad pages - yes, we have many of those but it's a wasp hive I'm not motivated to be touching anymore... - but also because of what I call "The VS Thread perspective".
