Veronica: And so goes the introduction of Mike as a girl-magnet. It wasn’t made apparent before.

This is more just meant to be a running joke rather than the girls being madly in love with him. So if he’s to be taken, the majority of his fangirl squad wouldn’t kill themselves or anything.

One feature I’ve always hated in other comics is characters who are endlessly perfect.. perfect looks, perfect athletes, just overall loved by dozens. It’s surprising how I didn’t realise for a long time that Mike was drifting into this mould. It was only after a while that I realized how.. perfect he is. He’s the fastest runner, he’s considered to be handsome, he’s completely NICE to boot.. and he’s got his team of adoring fangirls. I definitely changed this over time as more has been revealed.
