People hate Damian now, but all it's going to take is one woobie moment...when he loses his favorite blanket or crushes on Spoiler...and then the lovefest will begin.
Me? I liked Amadeus Cho back when he was all, "D00d, I pwn3d joor jellycarrier! W00t!" Characters who drip with the egotism of an unchecked child prodigy make me smile. That said, Damien's a joke without a punchline.
