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?

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


I am not familiar enough with Laura Kinney, so it is possible. I like Ben Reilly, buy not more than Pete.

As for the better replacements...

I think Bruce Banner is better than the original Hulk..,Xemnu. I know that is probably controversial.

While I think the stories were better for Mar-Vell, I like Genis more as a character. Though, I do still really like Marv.

Harry Osborn, in my book, is a better Green Goblin than Norman.

More of a Beta Ray Bill fan that Thor (no opinion of Jane Foster, good or bad).

Scott Lang is probably better than Hank Pym.

The son out shined the original Zemo.

Spider-Gwen is actually interesting, unlike the original from 616.

I don't think Miles is better that the 616 Pete, but maybe better than the Ultimate version.

I wouldn't say over all Danny Ketch was better than Johnny Blaze, but there were some moments he out-shinned him.

There were seriously Times Rhodey was better than Tony Stark as Iron Man.

This might be a cheat, but I think the government sponsored X-Factor was better than the still excellent Louise Simonson created one, and the Madrox led Detective years were better than that.

If you will indulge me with some DC ones...

Kyle Rayner, Alan Scott, and and John Stewart are all better than the most popular... Hal Jordan.

Wally West and Jay Garrick are both better than Barry Allen.

Cassandra Cain is better than Barbara Gordon.

If we look ONLY at the 21st century, I think Dick Grayson was a better Batman than Bruce. Not if we include 2000 and before.
