The alien invaders have desired Dr. Rocket for quite a while that they might make him answer for his crimes. As far as the SF Universe is concerned, there’s no one who has done more damage or more wrong than Dr. Rocket. He is an out and out villain. Never pretends to be otherwise. And yet… I’d say you guys are way harder on guys like Tangerine and Captain Spectacular. I find that fascinating. On the one hand we’ve got a couple of guys who are trying to do right thing but sometimes failing, and on the other we’ve got a guy who does what he wants and makes plenty of people suffer along the way.
I’m fascinated by the way fiction can sometimes change our rooting interest. My sense is that you LIKE Dr. Rocket more as a character and that’s what inspires the leniency, but am I wrong about that?
What do you think?
