You just called him worse than Christian Weston Chandler. Do you REALLY think he's worse than [url=sonichu.com/cwcki/Chris_and_writing]this[/url]?
The council has consistently been shown as being impotent, useless, and outright offensively obstructive. I have not seen a single story where they have done ANYTHING of note.
Hm...it's almost as if they were made for that purpose or something.
(they might as well have been manipulated by Ixus to pardon him, themselves),
What happened showed that Naugus understood what it meant to be king. He quoted the law on the matter, citing where in the law his decision came from. This shows he's serious about ruling the country. Can you think of a more effective way to show that point?
Other than that, we see absolutely JACK about what they'd do, except argue with themselves.
Because writing story upon story of legislation is what the kids want, right? Who in their right mind wants to read legislative stories in a "Sonic the Hedgehog" book? Law-making is boring.
It's stupid, and this latest takeover by Ixus just shows just how useless they are. The ass-pull of a law with the pardon is just a recent example of that.
Since you keep bringing it up, I wonder if you can tell us WHY it's an ass pull. It didn't seem so hard to understand that the king would know the laws.
more sense than random pardon.
And Naugus keeping the guy responsible for putting him on the throne out of jail is random how, exactly? There's a pretty clear reason why Naugus would want to free Geoffrey from prison: Geoffrey's treason got him on the throne to begin with.
After all, he is EVIL, right?
He's evil but trying to look good to the public.
Seriously, what freaking issue explains what all the king can do above and beyond the influence of the council? None, as far as I know; the King, while the head of the council, is just part of the council, and the whole pardon thing is the first thing I've heard of of ANY authority the king has above the council. Again, what the hell is the freaking point of a republic if the King can take over whenever the hell he wants? That just shows just how stupid and useless the Republic as a whole is.
The president of the united states is allowed to pardon one prisoner a year on his own, does that mean congress is useless? (in before tongue and cheek remarks)
As for Geoffrey being the traitor Silver seeks than Sally: One, at what point does it say that it was a MAJOR member of the Freedom Fighters instead of a reserve like Geoffrey?
Geoffrey was never a member of the Knothole freedom fighters. He was part of the Rebel Underground and leader of the Secret Service. He was never a member of the Knothole freedom fighters, the number 1 thing Silver mentioned
As for Ixus himself... again, he's OVERUSING his magic,
As for Sonic, he's OVERUSING his super speed, which I find stupid and annoying; whenever Ian needs something to make the story progress for the good guys, he falls back to their abilities to pull them out of the fire!
Honestly, I don't think he cares one lick for any of the Republic, as he becomes sole ruler.
No...really? Ya think?
with glaring plot holes
after the overuse of the DEL and Magitek
Say what now? What, did you want the magitek witch in the city flled with technology not to use her abilities? You want her to do what? slap people around or something? And Eggman overusing the DEL? What's next, you're going to say Mammoth Mogul overuses being fat? I'm thinking you'll need to define "overuse." How much is too much?
you guys are so goddamn insistent on defending Ian's bad writing, aren't you?
until you can say why it's bad, why not? I can respect that you don't like it, but if you honestly think its bad writing, you should be able to back it up.
For instance, I can say Penders' writing was sometimes bad, because we had a nearly omnipotent demigod thwarted by a rocketship when we knew he could easily fly out the freaking hole in the floor. That's bad writing. IF there was a reason why Enerjak couldn't escape from the rocket, then Penders should have said so.f
Ironic that not even on Ken's board can you badmouth Ian without getting slammed on by his fanboys
I don't see how it's ironic. Anyway, the reason you're being slammed is because it's being said that "Ian's a bad writer" without any real evidence. "Diablos ex Machina" ain't gonna cut it. We need facts from the book that can't be argued against.
I've explained why it's bad writing, but the defenders are just coming up with lame excuses for why it's not.
Screaming "VILLAINS ARE OVERUSING THEIR POWERS! without explaining what "overuse" is in this sense, is not explaining your viewpoint adequately, good person.
EVERY story that could've been told with Geoffrey as a traitor and being tried has now been thrown out the window with that one pardon. It's a cop out, nothing more,
You keep using words you apparently don't know how to use. Please stop. A cop out is a poor excuse out of a plot line. There was no "Geoffrey in prison" story arc being set up in the comic to have been "copped out" of.
and it ticks off the fans who wanted to see him get what was coming to him, because now we know he'[s getting off scott free for no reason whatsoever.
And really, you expect villains like Naugus to do things we admire?
