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?
