I don't see the point of doing a reboot if you're not really going to break free of the ties that bind.
I understand what you're saying, but I honestly liked Harrison more before he said he was Khan. Really. I just don't see Khan within him. I was one of the people over on Trekmovie who was nearly in denial by the end that they would do "Khan" again after just restarting the whole universe. They can do anything they want.
Eh, well. To each their own I suppose.
