Why? Is he really all that great a character? Does he really deserve all the praise people give him? Let's look at some things. UC up to F91 spoilers will be pre-dominant in this thread so watch out. MSG: Out for revenge at any cost. His whole schtick is to avenge his poppa. Does he not realize that by the means he uses to avenge his father he has already basically killed his father's ideals himself? What he does to Garma is inexcusable and just plain *****ish. He wants to further his father's view of Zeon and yet perverts his father's ideals every step of the way. Zeta: The AEUG needs him to step up and be leader. Yet he consistently scoots out of this role. He even fakes his own death so that he can avoid being the AEUGs leader. Some might say that this was to make the Earth Federation weaken itself so that he could come in later and dominate an opponent that lacks strong leadership. I still can' believe all the people who bought into his "I'm a good guy now" routine. Kamille included. He seemed smarter than that. CCA: Comes to drop Axis on Earth. Still is wanting to promote his fathers Zeon. Yeah, because his father really would want an asteroid dropped on Earth. By now has gone completely insane in his quest to heal the Earth. And the biggest irony of them all is that Char is the biggest speaker on moving into space and evolving into Newtypes yet he is, without a doubt, in the lower tier of newtype power ranges. We're talking he's a step up from Newtypes who don't realize they are Newtypes. Scirrocco said it best: "You failed to become a true Newtype, Char. A mongrel like you deserves to be culled!" It's simple. Judau, Kamille, Haman, Amuro...those are evolved Newtypes. They are what Newtypes could become. Char is a weak powered egotistical maniac basing his whole life on a perveted version of his father's ideal system and using so many aliases that, in the end, I don't even think Char knew who he actually was. Seriously, how does this type of character gain any popularity at all?
