I've recently thought much the same. During the backlash that was MichaelBJordan taking on the role of HumanTorch i couldn't believe the reasons people were giving for not wanting a black actor portraying JohnnyStorm. Instead of embracing this new cinematic universe and everything it can bring some can't let go that this isn't their comic. They merge characters they change their histories but if they make them a different race, well, that's going to far. Why? Sorry if this went off topic a bit but i believe it speaks to the bigger picture.
