You want intelligence? Here's one of the most intelligent things ever said:
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." -- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The content of Nick Fury's character is the same regardless of his complexion or whether he has hair (and the version of Fury in Avengers: EMH
and Wolverine and the X-Men
is a mix of both versions, African-American but with a full head of hair and gray temples like the 616 version). And I think intelligent viewers would not find it desirable to perpetuate the lack of ethnic diversity in the '60s Marvel universe.
You say this, but during the casting for the Avatar: The last airbender movie, you were throwing a fit on this very subforum because the actors chosen were caucasian and not the races from the animation series.
