Tomopop editor confused by apparent popularity

S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson is a surprisingly popular guy. He started off as an original character for the Marvel movies with some minor supporting roles in the Iron Man films and has gained screen time with each appearance. And now? Not only is there talk of him getting his own t.v. show, but the character (and his actor, Clark Gregg) have gained toy immortality through a 1/6 scale Hot Toys figure.

I'll be the first to admit that I don't understand Coulson's popularity. I didn't think much of the character in either of his Iron Man movie appearances and disliked him in Thor as well as in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon (then again, I don't like that cartoon...). I'm guessing he must do something epic in The Avengers (which I still haven't seen) to get a figure.

Despite coming with a lot of goodies (a big gun, some trading cards, a file folder, etc), I'm not entirely sure that Coulson is even a good figure. The hair in particular strikes me as clashing with the photo-realism evident throughout the rest of the figure. I suppose other than the accessories, head, and hands, he's really just a guy in a suit; something that may appeal immensely to the character's fan-base but is visually uninteresting to everybody else. Any Phil Coulson fans here?
