Anyway, we all know D-Man is well meaning, honorable, heroic, etc. But he's just a boob. And this is what makes him endearing. I may laugh at his expense with Bendis's writing, but I still want to see more of him and I want to see him overcome the hurdles that have always been in his way to finally achieve some sort of respect in the super hero community.
Like I said before, I think Bendis deserves a little credit for bringing him back around. There's that chance that Bendis is putting him down in the beginning just to make his struggle towards his goal all the more poignant. And I know the Bendis haters will say that I'm giving him too much credit. But let's see.
