Something that had always stood out as a 'what were they thinking?' issue for me is that okay I understand that they wanted to include at least one token female legacy as part of the effort to round things out but why would they pick the one character who CAN'T have a female legacy character to have one? The Phantom's entire mystique and theme is based around convincing everyone he's immortal, so that any time he seems to die his identical son can take up the costume and leave people thinking that he never died at all. You can't have a female take up the legacy because she violates the basic requirement to be part of the legacy. Really, why would they do something so incredibly stupid as to pick the one character that can't have a female legacy replacement to give a female legacy replacement to?
