Re: If they made a 25th century TV series, would you watch it?

All of these movies deviated from their comicbook core.
Plot wise, maybe. But that has nothing to do with what we're talking about.
My original point of all this Marvel-babble was that movies can expand without relying on reboots
Expansions with primary characters. I addressed that with my Kirk stand-alone film analogy.

and the ones that did (Hulk and Spiderman) can as easily be debooted back
And Star Trek can't?

^Wolverine still isn't a core character though.
"Core" =/= does not equal "original." Logan has been ubiquitously distributed throughout X-Men stories (across all media) for decades. He's about the only X-Man who has.

If we went stickily by your definition, Bones and Chekov wouldn't be core TOS characters. Jean-Luc Picard wouldn't be a core Star Trek character.
