Well, Nick Fury Jr. is a new character. He might be kind of replacing the old one, but he's a new guy. I'm talking about taking an established character, changing their race, and leaving everything else about that character exactly the same. Maybe in an alternate universe, sure. Movie and TV adaptations wee really what I was thinking about the most. But why would it be dumb to do it in the mainstream universe? Just retcon Peter Parker into a black guy and leave everything else the same? Honestly, I wouldn't have an issue if they went that far.

The world does not work the way you think it does:
