These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Mob Ties
Complete Monster: Bengal is a rapist, murderer, and freakin' god of undeath confined in a human form. Among his many sins, he has raped Mika, who was 13-14 at the time, murdered Mika's best friend Kyoko, and then destroying the one object that might have undone that murder. He also killed Santa Claus.
Crazy Awesome: Sidney Burns and his booziness were what got this whole mess started, have continued to propel him through much of the story, and is actually a vital part of his character. The fact that the booze is self medication to keep the trauma of several months being a prisoner of war from turning him into a rage filled monster only makes it more awesome. Of course, there are a few side effects.
Moral Event Horizon: The Big Bad Bengal crosses this very quickly after his first appearance in the comic, by first murdering one of the popular characters, then heartlessly destroying the Chekhov's GunReset Button that could have undone that murder less than a minute after. It's also quickly revealed that he's the one who raped Mika.
She was no more than 15 when this happened. He also beat her badly enough to put her in a year-long coma.
