...you meet people who call themselves "The Flaming Torch" every day?

(Oh, another offensive aspect that wasn't touched upon: Equating feminine
clothing with homosexuality.)

The point is, others *don't* consider it a tautology. You put words in the
mouth of the character who's most associated with me specifically to rebut
something I said.

...except that we're working in a shared universe, where "continuity" is a
thing. Now, we can play around with that for comic effect or just for the
sake of changing things, but we do need to acknowledge it.

...I'm sorry, but I don't find anything that you've written here
reasonable. You're ignoring other people's viewpoints, and insisting that
your actions and your interpretations of events are the only correct ones.
