: Our boy has always traditionally been shown
: as being more powerful but has suffered from
: some very poor writing for a long time
I simply can't get myself to pay money for a Bendis comic despite Simon being in the book, it just keeps the guy employed that much longer. I was hoping Cap could recruit him as a powerhouse for Brubaker's team but Bendis got dibs on Simon and nothing really good can come from it. He'll never go back to his roots because he doesn't write ANYONE as they have been developed over time, just as what he wants them to be. Sure he was designed as a guy that could go up against the Avengers.. but he's a hero at heart and sacrificed himself on their behalf. THAT's who Simon is.
My hopes are that Simon isn't destroyed as a character in this book any worse than the treatment he received in the Masters of Evil or whatever that mini was where he was relegated to being protected by guards in prison. In the past 5 or 7 years Simon's been defamed, depowered and had his very character stripped of everything that's made him one of Marvel's greatest heroes.
