What’s the Problem With Frieza?

It seems as though the fandom has lost their collective minds over this Frieza returning thing, and I honestly don’t understand why. I get it, he’s come back before( plenty of times), but Frieza coming back could actually be a cool part of the story. Whereas it would have been insanely cool to see Majin Buu go all out, his presence doesn’t add much to this arc character-wise.

Think about it, Goku, Vegeta, and Frieza teaming up for the first time, battling to survive against the strongest of foes. The animosity between them could add a very entertaining dynamic to the upcoming tournament that we wouldn’t experience with Buu participating. Just as the name implies, this is a tournament for survival, this forces Frieza to have Goku and the rest of the Z fighters back, and vice versa. Beyond just the cool factor of having him be apart of the tournament it just makes sense. If Beerus was gathering the strongest of fighters to participate wouldn’t he recruit Frieza for the team? 

Seeing Master Roshi, Tien, and Krillin back in action is going to be great fun, and should be worthwhile call back to old school Dragon Ball. While that much is true they are still on the weaker side of the spectrum in terms of power compared to the rest of the team. Adding Frieza to the mix gives them another powerhouse to go against the other universe’s heavy hitters.

Fact is, whether we like it or not Frieza is back, and Dragon Ball Super has built up enough good will with me that I’ll hold off judgment until after I see how it plays out. I’m not sure about you guys, but I’ve been loving the direction the series has taken and can’t wait for the start of the Tournament of Power!
