During the middle of STID it came down to this for me. I laughed at the implausibility and now, looking back, I still crack up when I see in my mind Spock beating the snot out of Khan. This should be the worst scene in all of Star Trek movie history, how JJ got away with this I have no idea. You would think there would be lynch mobs of angry Trekkies and nerds demanding JJ's head for destroying one of sci-fi's most iconic characters. In fact I seem to be the only who thinks Spock beating up Khan is just plain wrong, and this calls to mind...
This is simply a different character than TOS Spock. This character is younger and went through a very traumatic experience.

Are we all the same exact people we were eight-to-ten years ago?
