Star Trek XII (or the new II)

That's true, but I think it gets problematic when the struggles they go through are defined more by what they went through before, rather than how they're different now.

I was just skimming through Star Trek: Khan #5 from IDW, and they go out of their way to explain why he's white. I've spliced a few of the panels together.

Wow. That makes it so much worse. It's one thing to recast Khan as a white guy but to add the fact that they actually changed him into a white guy is ridiculous. It's not like anyone was going to recognise him.

Khan was basically the Hitler of the 1990s in Star Trek lore. I'd wager that people will still recognize Hitler in another few centuries. Maybe not everyone, but enough that it makes sense that Section 31 would change Khan's face so he could actually function as a secret operative.

The problems with Khan in Into Darkness stem more from his character than his face, anyway.
