And I'm Sure We'll Think He's Going To Stay Dead Too

So, to anyone that watched the Vol. 3 finale of Heroes last night...

Jeph Loeb's way to make Sylar scary...is to rip off Saw?

Now, unlike Loeb, I'm not a terrible comic book writer, so I guess I can't really talk about homage vs. outright swiping, but if I may make a suggestion: the next time you want to make your audience feel a real kind of threat from a character, you may want to focus on better characterization, rather than relying on references to a well known movie franchise to provide it for you.

I can't wait until Brian Fuller returns...
