Should Creeper remain insane?

If the Creeper is ever reincorporated into comics again, should he be portrayed as a psychotic (like the modern version) or should he be portrayed in the same vein as Ditko's version of the character?

I've have him hew as close to his roots as possible. I find it disrespectful to the original creators whenever someone takes a character and just arbitrarily re-invents them to suit their story. I'm looking at you DC re-launch. If you're not going to write the character, then don't use the character. I think portraying the Creeper as insane is a bit too easy and totally misses the point of the character. Insanity allows a lazy writer to justify bad characterization. The Creeper deserves better.

I agree. Dikto's original version was the best. the newer versions (especially the newest one) are terrible.

I don't want a carbon copy, but something more along the lines of Ditko's portrayal would be a welcome change. The psycho schtick has been done to death.

He should stay insane, IMO.
