1. DISGRACED HERO
He did the same exact thing I did, he was making this
joke at her expense, only he didn't creep her out and
I did. And that was the way he was. He said things
and did things that were infinitely worse than
anything I did, but everybody loved him for it. It
seemed like he always came out on top, while I was
always the guy that was gerrymandered in.
2. REFORMED VILLAIN
He was prattling on about how he had made a
mistake. But once he got his head straightened out
(he didn't say "jail" but he thought it, it
telegraphed into my brain complete with him dark and
moody on his cot), he put all that behind him. He
hadn't made up for it yet, but he was trying.
"Now," he said, "if you have a problem with me and
my past, then you better let me know now."
I told him what the problem was. "You're making me
3. LOYAL FRIEND
I screamed out loud, jumping backwards and clinging to
my chair. He put a hand on my shoulder and told me to
calm down. After a few tense minutes, I was calm even

4. THE TRAITOR
Sometimes I wish I could just let myself go. The
tension and strain is unbearable: so why bear it?
When I freak out, there's a certain relief, not just
for myself, but for everyone else. It's a lot easier
to deal with me when I have an episode than to be
waiting ominously for the shoe to drop.

"In the beginning, Milos seems to have no clue how to relate
to anyone. He is quizzical, leaving the viewer questioning
-- Ryan M. Niemiec, co-author of MOVIES AND MENTAL ILLNESS
"If a comic book, book, movie or novel is not somebody's fantasy
then who wrote it and to whom does it appeal to? In order for a
shared universe to have a widespread appeal, it has to appeal on
a primal level. If somebody says superhero comics are just 'wish
fulfillment' then he needs to explain what is entertainment that
doesn't satisfy our wishes and what satisfaction at all you can get
from it." -- Dr. Martin Phipps
