Did the portrayal of Anakin ruin Vader for you?

In the first movies, episodes 4, 5, and 6, Vader was a complete badass. 
Then. When the prequels came out we got to see what Vader was like before Vader.
Well. It turns out Anakin was a whiny b*tch that complained all the time and wanted everything done his way. 
Now when I watch the original trilogy and I look at Vader, I just see the face of whiny Anakin inside there.
I can't help to think that Vader was once a whiny b*tch.
Kind of sucks.

Yes, even in Episode 3 when he starts to have balls, the first thing he does as Darth Vader is piss and moan about his wife

No because I have decided to ignore all that prequel crap. Although it does make sense that the galaxy's baddest bad ass would be the galaxy's whiniest bitch.

Only the Tartakovsky Clone Wars cartoons do Anakin justice.

@Emperor Gonzo Noir:  I THINK I may have two explanations as to why he whined about his wife. First; Vader was going to learn how to prevent death, an absolute power. He gave up everything for that, only to be cheated from it. In other words, he was angered that he didn't gain the power. Remember when he said, "She was alive, I FELT IT!" I think he was trying to figure out what he did wrong. Second; My best argument is that he was also mourning the "loss" of his unborn "child". Remember, at this point, Vader is not aware that his "child" lived, so Vader could also be agonizing of that loss as well. Still I AGREE, Vader needed more scenes and MORE lines. Seriously, HE ONLY SAID 22 WORDS!!!!

I thought episode 1 was the worst Anakin could get.....but.....no Hayden christensen's acting is laughable and he's written very poorly ....
so yeah....a little bit, but for the most part Vader is badass
