Spiderman, originally, was about 15 in 1963 - all subsequent tellings of this story must preserve this 'fact'?Sounds similar to my take on changes to Magneto or Elrond. You've got this character with a certain backstory, certain characteristics, attitudes, etc. If you go changing those too much, you no longer have that character. You've got someone else entirely. IE: Homelander or Deep.
Queens today looks NOTHING like Queens in the 60s - we need to stick with Archie Bunker Queens?
How many Hulk's are there? there are several storytelling reasons why the Banner +/- Hulk dynamic is fluid
the war backdrop for many characters used to be Vietnam, now it's Afghanistan bc obviously
The stories were created in the context of their times - why wouldn't their re-tellings also reflect the context of 'these' times
