WHY??? I don't understand your logic!

But to take something that works and is more than fine the way it is and is established and well known and change it just becauuuse... "eh, let's make him a black guy!" is wrong to me. Zero reason for it whatsoever other than somebody wanted to change it just for the hell of it.
Or maybe an actor is really talented and a perfect fit for Luthor, but it just happens that he's black?
