It seemed to speak to the reader too often. It also seemed like the writers had an inferiority complex, probably because it's a book of all the cancelled characters. There's too heavy an emphasis on proving themselves.
For example, page 1 Hawkeye (male) is giving an interview and immediately gets indignant.>don't you think Hawkeye (girl) is too young to lead?>even asking that shows you have no idea what you're talking about. Did you do ANY research for this interview at all?
Hawkeye, apparently, is unaware that the purpose of an interview is not to sate the reporters personal curiosity. They're asking questions so that someone watching it later can hear the answer, not so the interviewer can hear the answer. He asks about research, but the point of the interview is to be research for someone else.
This heavily implies that the writer is speaking through Hawkeye to the reader. There's a defensive attitude about the characters because they know nobody likes them or cares about them. It's off-putting and it's a tone that follows the entire issue.
