He was a complete douchebag, and that's as nice as I can say it. I've run into him on a number of other occasions since, where that it appears to be the norm for him. Completely ****ed me up, as he was most certainly a MAJOR hero of mine growing up.
Yeah, I heard a story about him when I was still pretty young which sort of soured me to him. But oddly, I'm of the sort that doesn't and never really had any heroes. Which is mostly just sad.
