Perhaps it's because of depth...Spawn has a very simple way of doing
things, character wise, whereas you have people like Char who are so
complex about their motives...and then there is the idea of dark japanese
anime characters being actually more honorable than their good
counterparts...see Anavel Gato as an example.

Is it because of the demonic slant? I dunno, I was watching Demon City
Shinjuku and WIcked city, and I found them more tasteful than Spawn...even
with all the sex-weirdness of Wicked City...
