I think alot of the hate for T is on account of the fact that people are reading the comic as it comes out and then discussing it for ever and a day.

Once this arc is finished and I can go read over it I have every confidence that it will make sense, that T being as awesomely prepared as he is will make sense and that it will further Elan's character development.

Not that T actually rubs me the wrong way. I think his character is fine and enjoyable. I just want things to move forward and to find out what is going on with X, Redcloak and Co. since they engage me on many more levels than T has had a chance to do thus far.
