There's a vid I just saw about Changing characters to avoid royalties since in essence, it's a different character with the same name. Which actually explains a lot as the reason as to why they change characters, usually with the easiest way.
So, in a very ironic way, those cheering for these _representations_ are really cheering for companies being cheap and screwing over the people that created the characters in the process.
