I really hated the concept and story of Batman Inc. Batwing was the only memorable character to come out of the entire organization, too.

Since Bruce Wayne is basically immortalized around the age of 35, that means he was now born sometime around 1980. Obviously back in 1939 he'd be a rich white man, but a wealthy black man can some from wealthy black parents in the 80's.

It's the same reason Bruce Wayne went from a millionaire to a billionaire. Back in the old days a millionaire was rare, then it became so common they had to re-invent Bruce Wayne as a billionaire instead.

True, but if you have to come up with a zillion excuses to make it work, how bout don't and just start fresh with a whole new character.

That was my biggest problem with black Johnny Storm, especially when I found out they weren't going 100% with it and not making Sue Storm also black. They had to make up some bs excuse to make it fit their forced narrative when they could have either left everything alone, or gone all in and made both siblings black.
