Yes, WE may know a lot about Simon Williams but to the casual fan, they see just another strongman who's only purpose is to make more popular characters look good.(How's that for calling him a "jobber" without actually sayin' it?) Perhaps by having him work "behind the scenes"(exposing relationships/alliances/skillsets we never knew he had), we'll get to see a side of Simon that may help others to gain a new appreciation for the character.
I've stated this before-having a pasifist Simon staying back and doing what he's gotta do(and doing it WELL) will get him more panel time then if he were out on missions "blending in". Hopefully, this is Remender's intention-make him more interesting THEN have him kick some butt! Sometimes to "fix" a character, ya gotta work from the inside-out!
