And?

I'm not really seeing any negatives here. He doesn't have to be likable to be a good character.

He ran over an ambulance without even knowing it was the Joker and Alfred didn't even bat an eye to that!

You didn't like Pyg? :shock:

He's a grown man in a pig mask turning people into human dolls! What's not to love?!?!?! :lol:

wait, you are complaining about Pyg and Damien and then praising the fact that Morrison ripped off the Disneyfied version of a character from Wind of the fucking Willows?

It could become his constant character quality. He'll be like Jason Todd. One-note. Nothing more.

No Mr Toad is a literary character. Just cause he appeared in one frigging Disney movie and some cartoons you have to Disneyfied him. Well so if we're going into that logic so was the Mad Hatter. :P

My point was you are praising an obvious riff of the Disney version (regardless of his origins, this character is meant to resonate with those who have seen the disney film)... what you are talking about now, I have no clue.

Did someone, switch every other page of your copy with pages from RIP?

but my points so that he is not as you said a "one dimensional character" as Jason wasn't pre-crisis, precrisis, Jason was very much a homeless version of Tim.
