I try to disconnect my OCs from whatever cannon I base them off of. Just because it's easier to manage. I'm used to figuring out how characters fit into their world and other characters. That's what happens when you try to make a Superhero story large enough to rival that of Marvel or DC. I actually don't find myself doing this much. I've made characters since I was 10 and it's always been for the sake of humor or fun. I look at my Fighting Foodon OCs and still enjoy them. Most characters I've scrapped usually make an upgraded comeback.
