@jaken7: Nothing I post would make a difference to how you believe. You clearly live in a world of denial and would rather blame an object than the person who committed the crime. They banned guns and violent crime went up.... is it really that unclear?
"I've yet to see how Human Torch being black actually changes who he is instead of just the color of his skin. How does this alter his actual character (as in "the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual") instead of just THAT'S NOT HOW HE LOOKS IN THE COMICS?"
This is what takes away the fun of fan casting. It's the people who want to be politically correct and sh*t on those who want the characters from the comics to actually look like the character in a movie. Normally I would enjoy a fan casting but no longer. It's just a big joke to me now.
Worst idea for an article I've ever seen on CV. Fan casting is beyond pointless and is a major joke. Bunch of hypocrites. Yeah, let's act like looks don't matter but then do fan casting based on exactly that.
