I have very mixed feelings about how Johns has written him, as he made him crazier than usual, removed the tech and invention aspect from him, and made him so psychopathic as to be completely unlikeable. On the plus side, people (readers and characters) actually take him seriously now, which I like. Johns amped up his powers considerably and made him a force to be reckoned with. Still, it’s pretty clear that Johns doesn’t like him (he’s said as much), and he makes that obvious. All the other characters treat him like shit and he had a lame death.
Despite all this, I still hope he comes back soon. I’m just that pathetic :>
