Sorry my post rubbed you the wrong way or wasn't what you had in mind.
I was simply tossing out a possibility and laying out the reasoning for
it. Albeit, it was lengthy and used politically-pointed examples to
make my point. Take it with a grain of salt.
>> [Il Gatto] seems like a standard "journalist with no morals" to me.
>> Is it just a coincidence that he hasn't been used much the last many
I guess you wanted a yes or no answer? Oh well...
I know not everyone that does comics bends the same way and readers
usually shy away from politically-charged stories. But political slant
happens, in movies, TV, and yes, even in comics. Intentional or not, I
don't wet my pants over it, and neither should you.
For all I know or care, your probably right, the Itailians most
likely ran out of ideas for Il Gato, and he's been forgotten ever
since. Like I said, I never even heard of Il Gato till you inquired
about him. I haven't invested the time in researching the character. I
fully encourage you to use Il Gato in a story. The story potential of a
crooked, lying, immoral jerk of a journalist IS immense. Go nuts with
it. Use him how you wish. If your going to be fearful of being labeled
as one thing or another, don't.
