This makes me hate him even more for the shit he put Xanadu through.

To be fair, that was the preboot Stranger. Who wasn't Judas. At least not officially.

I have a hard time using words to describe how much I dislike this take on the Phantom Stranger.

ITA! The tortured soul who must always be a 'stranger' was a cool concept. The family guy with two kids is just not the same. (Not to mention that he's obviously hiding a very important part of his life from said family. I could see it if he were inactive as the Stranger and attempting a kind of normalcy, but the Stranger stuff pulled him reluctantly back in, but we get none of that here. Finally gets a name though.

Basically the whole "Stranger" part of the Phantom Stranger is missing. He's got no mystery now, and kinda misses the entire point of the character.

I could write a whole goddamn essay about what I hate about this new Not-Stranger.

What makes it worse is that this guy is my favorite fictional character. Not just my favorite comics character--the preboot Stranger is just plain my favorite fictional character in anything. So it hurts me greatly to see him stripped of everything that made him unique and interesting and lovable.

they're trying to make him known to the audience while being unknown to the heroes I think.

I'm kind of interested, because I like the idea of a guy who doesn't think he's ever going to be allowed to be happy trying to be happy. And maybe when a new direction is set up having some scene explaining to him that he's not really being punished. That because he did the shit job back at the crucifixion he's been drafted into others since(one of my big issues with Christianity is why is what Judas did bad, when Jesus was SUPPOSED to die for people's sins.) because they had to be done.

Preboot version, that one was cursed so that he was unable to form close connections with people due to moving through time and space in a nonlinear fashion, so he would always be a stranger as he'd always have a different frame of reference for dealing with people.

This version... is just Judas with superpowers. Being about to have a family of any sort kind of goes against the idea of the character. Hell, even the audience knowing who he is for definite takes away from him.

He's still a stranger, after centuries of being alone he snapped alittle and created this lie. They aren't really his kids, that's not really his wife.

LOL! Now THAT would be interesting...and amusing! (Though sort of a rip-off of the Scarlet Witch!)
