I didn't mind Hush as much, if only for the fact that the characters he was derivative of like original!Roman here were characters I hadn't actually read much of as a child, and who had faded into obscurity by the time of my late teens bat-renaissance.
Moreover, while people love the Hush story, I hold that it's due to Jim Lee's awesome art and a good old fashioned villainous gambit. Note that Hush himself didn't build any sort of huge fandom and become a persistent threat, so all's right with the world.
Dr. Hurt was just terrible. Terribly bland, and as has been pointed out here beautiful, a boring Hugo Strange knockoff.
