Oh, okay. My bad.  He just reminded me of an obscure throwaway
character from ten years ago is all.

Hey, Leifeld gave us some winners, such as Dawn Granger/Dove,
Deadpool, Cable, original X-Force, and a few others, many of which
prospered when other writers took the characters and developed their
hidden potential.  Tom gave us Nudist Man, among others, and look at
his current portrayals (as opposed to his original appearances). And
anyway, Tom's writing has matured greatly; Leifeld's ... hasn't. So in
my above comment, I was referring to Young!Tom, not current!Tom.
