But Bendis gave Cage an attitude and a confidence, a swagger if you like, that Simon doesn't have. Now a days, attitude is more popular than sheer power.
"Hollywood" had an attitude because he had a chip on his shoulder which meant he didn't hold back and he was a FORCE. Perhaps if Simon were written more like "Hollywood" he would become more interesting to writers, which means they would do more with him.
Maybe it's time something happened in his life(such as feeling guilty about letting Wanda down)that has Simon leave the Avengers and go rogue. Put him in that future get-up he had in his mini and have him start turning towards his "Hollywood" persona(the loner who takes no guff from anyone). I know this is a drastic measure, but anything to get him more involved in the Marvel Universe.
In fact, now that I think of it, it would be cool to see a long gray haired, shade sporting, trench coat wearing, no holding back 'cause he has a chip on his shoulder, Wonder Man join up with the New Avengers and become their version of The Sentry-the go to guy, powerhouse who everyone, even Cage, would be afraid to upset because he just may take THEM out!.
