Eventually, editor Deborah Tate insisted that Amy had to be more of role model for girls. Being the only regular female character in the strip at the time, Tate dictated that Amy had to be more mature and sensible than anyone else in the strip, something that Nigel Kitching considered an insulting stereotype as the male characters were allowed to have rounded personalities with genuine flaws. Lew Stringer would agree with Tate though, saying “the smitten girlfriend role… was a fun idea to start with but in the 1990s it was an old fashioned concept for comics really, so Amy’s character needed to grow”. He believed that Tate had also become “bored” of Amy as she was.
