True. And if it was a new character or even an established character with that sort of personality then I would have no problem with it. But this is a character who has been established for twenty decades as a loving caring passionate individual that makes strong emotional bonds.

I swear somtimes I feel I cannot get anymore detailed with my critisem of people's writing than"This character is acting out of character" because people become confused.

Starfire as established would never act the way she did in Red Hood.

This is crappy writing. I don't care if the writer wants to write a character that acts like that. It's when he makes a character that would never act like that act like that that I become filled with hate.

I am not speaking in general terms but in regards to on specific character.

This character is acting out of character.

This is bad because she is quite popular and now her fans are upset that they can no longer recognise her.

Apathetic loveless rutting is out of character for Starfire. That is the compliant. Understand?

No, thank you, I already got what you were complaining about. And I agree with the sentiment (sort of), just not the words.

But are you sure you understand what *my* problem is? It doesn't sound like you do.

Your problem seems to be that you see all specific complaints about a specific fictional story as sweeping condemnations for real life situations. This is a comic forum and I was talking about the comic.

I have no problem with what real people do with there private time as long as they don't harm others and I have no problem with fictional characters doing anything at all as long as it makes sense and is well written.

If I'm wrong in this belief about your problem please correct me.

Perhaps you could just try reading more carefully?
