Lightning wasn't female, but instead a caring brother with a short temper at first?
Can't help the feeling that a lot of people like her only for her looks.
I like Lightning because of her character. I don't become attached to characters because of their looks. Lightning is a good character in my opinion. If she was a he, I'd have no problem with that as long as the character stayed the same.
If she was a he, I'd probably be more, ahem, interested in her story. --- "The only thing that gets me high is the musky scent of my enemy's fear.'' - Stephen Colbert http://s1136.photobucket.com/albums/n496/Elice_Carol/
