While I agree with this, I feel like a character should at least be recognizable. If you're going to go all out and change everything about the character, name them something else. Movie Bane is still recognizable as Bane. His origin and MO are still intact despite changes. This Vertigo is a drug dealer that happens to sell a drug that gives people vertigo. That description alone already makes me think "You know, you don't have to use preexisting characters, right? You're allowed to make up your own."
