Fuck logical progression, fuck a decent story reason, here's a long lost son, he is black and is now Nick Fury because we've got a film coming out. We don't care if it doesn't make logical sense, we don't care about telling an organic story that might take the characters to interesting paths, here is a black Nick Fury because we've got a film coming out.
It's ridiculous. Such an obvious "fuck off" to the fans. I genuinely am shocked that people are ok with this.
Have you read it? Nope. I have, and I'm telling you, the execution makes it palatable. It is progression, and new character growth and spotlight (those things you always say comics should do, remember?) that respects what's been done with Fury lately and allows him to keep that role, while introducing a new character to fill his old role who has a chance to catch on with fans. Host and Bunn gave Johnson/Jr. His own personality to counter the obvious physical hand-me-down traits and made it interesting.
