    I was thinking today about how most people prefer the original to a do-over or remake, in pretty much any medium.

    It got me wondering, what replacement characters do you prefer over the original?



    Quote:
    Ben Reilly over Peter Parker?
    Laura Kinney over Logan?
    Amadeus Cho over Bruce Banner?


For each other those, I wouldn't say either is better, just different, and I'm thrilled that they exist.
* Peter is more relatable. Ben is edgier.
* I've been pretty much done with Wolverine as a character since 1993. Magneto could have permanently killed him in Fatal Attractions and I'd have been cool with it. Laura's more relatable to me. In fact, I didn't want Logan to be resurrected this last time and still want Laura to own the codename.
* Bruce is a stick-in-the-mud depression fest, whereas Amadeus is sweet fun. Both have worth, but I get tired of depression fests a lot easier. Never get tired of fun.

Kamala > Carol - I'm still a huge fan of Carol despite several things. But at this point, I think Carol have been victimized by too many writers (including KSD). Kamala is free of that. Also, she's more relatable, almost like she's Peter dressed as Carol.

I really wasn't a fan of the recent Vision maxiseries until Viv's development afterwards. I've loved Vision since the beginning. He might be my Top 5 Avengers. But she's come damn near close.

The new Wasp (Nadia) is better than Jan at this point. For decades, Jan's just become mostly horrible, imo.

On the other hand, I still don't care about Sam Alexander, and he's not even in the same universe of awesomeness as Rider.

Miles Morales is okay. I don't dislike him, but he's nowhere near Peter. As far as Spider-characters go, I don't think he's even in my Top 5.

I've really wanted to like Riri, but I'm just not there yet, and I'm not holding my breath.

As a team, I think I'm a bigger fan of the Champions than Avengers... at least until Aaron leaves.

Aaand... I don't really like any of the Young Avengers, especially Kate Bishop.
