Precisely. Comics are a visual medium, so character appearance is a big part of who they are. I don't think anyone on here would criticize other posters for being upset if Cavill was a long haired blond in Man of Steel. I think the fact that all it takes is something as simple and easy as hair dye to replicate this aspect of the character's appearance is why it bugged people. Actors cut and dye their hair all the time for roles. So why didn't they have Amy for Lois? So, in my opinion, it's an understandable fan quibble.
