Today I saw someone saying they don't want a character they like to get popular.
....What? It's not the first time I've seen someone say this but it still doesn't make sense. Why wouldn't you want your favorite character(s) to get more mainstream? Popularity equals more exposure both in and out of comics. I mean I guess I could understand if the concern was potentially bad stories and characterzations from writers that don't get the character. But not the idea itself of getting more attention for your favorites,
