I have no real attachment to the character in the comics and didn't mind that he didn't have the magic rings or a dragon. The reason why I didn't like the role reversal is that I really dug the version that Kingsley had come up with and so I was disappointed that the character was barely in the film and, in fact, not actually in it at all.

O Captain! My Captain! Rise up and hear the bells.
Rise up, for you the flag is flung, for you the bugle trills.
For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths, for you the shores a-crowding.
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning.
