Keep wasting all the good storylines on crappy animated movies, DC. This is why we can't have nice things.

No, but you're homophobic for associating a pink Hulk with homosexuals.

Give me a break. I never associated the color with homosexuals. I was saying that you probably would accuse me of doing so (and I was right). "oh em gee u dont like the idea of a pink hulk ur lyk so homophobic." Should I change the hypothetical color for the sake of the argument? Take it easy.

It is about race. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"? What does that even mean?

What does it even mean? You've really never heard of that saying? It's something that you say which means if a system or method works well there is no reason to change it.

It's not like they're just decided to make the Human Torch black for the hell of it, they happened to have found the right actor for the role who happens to be black. I support it 100%. Anyone should be given the opportunity to play the role.

Alright, that's your opinion. The point is that my opinion isn't derived from racism. You can disagree with it if you want, but it's not about social injustice. It's about keeping characters the same.

Except you did associate pink Hulk with homosexuals, otherwise there would be no reason to bring up homophobia.

I know what it means, I meant relatively. Pretty much what you're saying is that since the Human Torch has always been white, then why change it? Gee, that's a modern way of looking at things. (Sarcasm intended)

He's the same in every way. Your only problem is he's black. Bet you didn't get pissed off when you found out The Thing was going to be a different shade of brown. Or that he looks nothing like he does in the comics. Nah, we're just mad that they cast a black guy.

@heatblaze123: They're not "necessarily changing" anything. They cast a black actor, so they fit the story around it. If they made him an alien, then they're unnecessarily changing the character. Casting a black actor means nothing. You're literally pissed off because he's black. It is racism whether you want to admit it or not. Maybe you should stop judging him by the color of his skin, and instead judge him as an actor. The original Human Torch also happened to be a drawing. I bet you weren't super mad when they cast a real person for the role the first time.

@heatblaze123: Couldn't have said it better myself.

@noone301994: So, you're saying no black man should ever be allowed to play the Human Torch because he's black? Sounds racist to me. They're not "unnecessarily" changing a character. He's still the Human Torch. Nothing about his personality or power-set are being altered. They just figured that he's perfect for the role, so let's look passed the color of his skin and give him a chance. Clearly something you can't do...

Again, let's make the Hulk pink. Am I racist for being against that? Or homophobic? Stop trying to make this about race and social inequality BS. I don't care about any of it. Bottom line, it's a completely unnecessary change. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Depends if their are other super-powered people out there. I'd most likely just become emperor of the world.

Clint Eastwood's the biggest bad-ass in the world.

What a prick. It's not about racism. It's about unnecessarily changing an iconic character that people love.

Movie makers change characters all the time. The only change that seems to be bothering you and most people is the change in skin color, which is racism. Also, we should stop fighting over this and turn our attention to blogger Dr. Doom. That's a horrible idea. From monarch of Latveria to internet blogger? Oh, he's so menacing. He's going to b**** about the FF on Twitter.

Toronto. No one hates Toronto, and it's close enough to New York without being the US.
