I agree 100%. I think the problem with Wondy and how he is perceived is that he is too nice and too bland. Characters like that usually aren't writers favorite to begin with. While I don't want Wondy to become another Penance/Speedball, he could get some of that Hollywood attitude. As a matter of fact I would love him to get all of that attitude and cockiness that Hollywood had.
As strange as this may sound does everyone remember when Wondy went thru his dark phase during his title and in AWC? The whole Angkor storyline was one of my favorites. I enjoyed when he was unstable and unpredictable. Too bad Sentry occupies that role nowadays.
