I tend to prefer the original over the carbon copy.
They have Khan, Carol and a death scene in the warp core. Otherwise they're as much a "carbon copy" as Man of Steel is a carbon copy of Superman II.

Along with numerous lines and situations lifted straight from TWOK. But other than that, nothing similar.
Definitely inspired by, but in no way a "carbon copy" of. Where was Genesis or the Mutara nebula battle in ID? Or Section 31, a starship crash or chase through the streets of San Francisco in WoK? If they're carbon copies, where is Khan's vendetta against Kirk?

I don't think you could tell a Khan story while remaining true to Trek lore and make it any more different than ID was to SS or WoK.
