Hmm. Looking at this I think the problem isn't that you gave Sarcastic Lad
a son, but the way you wrote Sarc as a very callous bastard.
I mean, sure, Sarc is a jerk and an asshole -- but I'd like to think that he
has at least some redeeming qualities... that he wouldn't piss on someone
who he thought was his son... he might be skeptical that this was some
supervillain scam or something... but I don't think Sarc would ever be this
Of course I know this was written a long time ago...
