Cinema Blend sees nothing wrong with "diversifying" the Hulk

Cinema Blend's published a puff piece about Bruce Banner's PC replacement, a Korean-American who's power works differently from Banner's:
This revelation comes from Marvel Comic’s new plan to diversify and change the lineup of the Avengers and its other superhero brands. After adding female versions of Thor and expanding the female hero Captain Marvel, the most powerful creature in the universe will now be a Korean-American. And Amadeus Cho has actual control over the Hulk, unlike his counterpart Bruce Banner. Take that, Mark Ruffalo.
So let's see if I have this right. What makes this protagonist so special besides his racial background is the ability to control his alternate shape? I don't see how this couldn't be done with Bruce. Certainly there was a time when Peter David wrote that Bruce's mind and the Hulk's shape were merged together to form the "intelligent Hulk", but then, how is it not possible to do with Bruce what's being done now with new character Amadeus? It's just like the situation with Green Lantern in the 1990s, only now, it's been made more laughable.

Really diversifying your characters would be to create new not-white superheroes and actually doing something with them, not turning new characters into the namesake of the old ones. That would be fine if change and new versions of superheroes were the norm but instead we have the sliding timeline so the same characters STAY the same characters while creating a fake sense of time advancement. So all your doing is tossing a good character aside in the name of diversity instead of making a new, good character of color. Static proves that it can be done to the point that DC screwed McDuffie over...and then proceeded to do nothing with him because like Harley Quinn they don't understand what made the character work with people.

Gay comic writer Marc Andreyko (who turned Obsidian gay) just wrote "fuck you" on his Facebook with a link to a ThinkProgress article describing Ted Cruz calling the Colorado shooter a "transgendered leftist" because he registered to vote as female mind you. Artist Scott Koblish then backed him up. https://www.facebook.com/marc.andreyko/posts/10154359695599745
