MikeClone and RevisedElly: the pattern continues......

One of the many annoying things about the real-time strip was watching Elly cave in to or be outwitted by her extraordinarily average son Michael. It seemed almost impossible for her to anticipate what he'd do because she wasn't really all that smart a person and probably seceretly admired his less pleasant behavior. The drive towards martyrdom she had ensured that she pull her punches as far as discipline was concerned. She eother faled to live up to a threat or sabotaged John's attempts at making the boy behave less like a jackass. The end result was, as could be guessed, a glib, entitled jerk who thinks everyone has to kiss his far Patterson arse. The problem with the new-runs is that Lynn does not seem to have seen fit to change any of this. It would seem that she thinks MikeClone is supposed to be just as big a jerk and RevisedElly as big a doormat as the original versions are.
