Re: Read & Reread "Greater Than The Sum"- My Opinion (Spoilers)

At what point does your "doing it better" become "turning it into something it wasn't in the first place," though?

If I were to rewrite X-Men as a paramilitary organization of genetically engineered humans trying to overthrow the government, how would it be X-Men apart from my saying, "Hey, this is X-Men." Similarly, how is this all-male, combat-centered Trek you favor anything like what actually is Star Trek?
"They quickly settled on the slender island at the head of the bay, which they called 'Mannahatta', after an old Indian word thought by some to mean 'island of hills', and by others 'place of general inebriation'."
