I agree. They turned him into a barking DOLL. As stated to Millie-wa earlier in this thread. Amazing what happens when you have brainwashing in society, isn't it? And Tally thinks she's hideous yet I know people who would beg to suck her toes...
Some of it might be the art though, remember. This is a manga; the style of them isn't exactly physically accurate. But still.
Also; hey, I'm blond! I'm insulted! (no I'm not)

First, I just said that I LIKE blond boys, second, I read lots of Manga, and I can think of a lot of Manga guys that are not freaks, and are good looking.

Oh...okay, I read it as you don't like blonds. I recind what I said.
But yes, even for a manga Zane looks FREAKY. As does the Helen chick who's with him. In the words of Asher Seaguard, my pretty OC; "The Surge doesn't make you look pretty. It makes you look WRONG."

Yeah. . . But then again, I really don't like David's look much either, so maybe I just don't like the look of the male characters in this manga.

David was kinda strange to me to. THAT I think we can put down to the manga style.

David had crazy eyes, an annoying smug expression and a bad haircut, and I'm not David fan so he has all that working against him.

Never really liked him myself, honestly. Actually, a lot of the stuff in Uglies annoyed me. Like, the Specials are so horrifying to everyone, yet I bet if you shot one he'd just cry and beg for mercy because he's never face a real opponent.

I think the point of them was that they were like superman with the reflexes and they would be too quick for you to shoot.

Probably. I'm just saying; give them a real threat and they'd cave. All they face are easy targets. Up against something their own size, so to speak, they wouldn't stand a chance.

Probably not, I agree, they are overrated a bit.

Spoiler

And Diego was able to de-weaponize them without much of a problem.

An excellent point. Though really, "weapoinzed" is barely applicable to them. When I think "weaponized human", I think Wolverine or Penny Mercer. Not the Cutters.

Do you know the game Prototype? She's the fan-originated daughter of Alex Mercer, the protagonist. Though "daughter" isn't really the best description.
