Huh, that's interesting. But in that case, it failed miserably when it came to this reader, who admittedly hasn't finished Cryoburn yet. I like Mark quite a bit more than I like Miles (however, I like Miles an awful lot!). I can see why Miles is better at being the central character for the series as a whole and most of the individual books, but for some reason Mark just grabs me more.
(And I don't really go for the "darker & edgier" type of character in pop culture in general, so it's not that...)
