So, you're proposing that Nick Fury should be a sort of Black meat puppet animated by the spirit of a dead White guy? Yeah, no.

Fury is a Black man in the Ultimate universe and that's the version Marvel chose to use. There is no justification for virtually enslaving him via some sort of outlandish mind-swapping scheme just so it can somehow be claimed that he's the White version of the character in blackface.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
