somehow, with the shit fans seem to damn him with, I dont think so. It doesnt work that way.
"Oh Axl goes maverick!!!111!!one"
"but he's in Command Mission..."
"Oh, he get bEttter then!!!"
No. I really dont think so. All i can think of is a Zero like Scenario where he is used to create something or to cause something, much like Zero was used to create the Nightmare, or a "nice job breaking it hero" moment, where he inadvertently causes something bad to happen.
"Grow a pair?" He had to take on and figth all of his former colleague and friends, as well as fight his Mentor and see him die. Not to mention confronting the one responsible for orchestrating that disaster. Then he had to fight off the army of Reploids who posess the finalized version of his own ability, and who claim they can "go maverick at will". They are- much like Omega is Zero's nightmare, they are the representation of what can ad DID go wrong with an ability like his.
not to mention he is the one who has to screw X's head back on when Lumine's words faze him, shooting a "Shut up" shot at Lumine.
he may be childish, but he is by no means immature or has any less ability than his idols.
