Add Tag:
Marty Stu seems like a pointless split-off of Mary Sue. Like it says in the latter: "Not everybody bothers with that distinction [with Marty Stu], though. Far and away more frequently the character type is called a Mary Sue without regard to gender."

Anyone else think so?

ETA: Should probably cross-reference the triple-Sue cleanup. linky
