Some people really have way too much time on their hands! Who cares what they call him? You can call him anything you want, call him Peanut Britches for all you want. Who cares??

What? Roadblocks been written off?
Heck no! Why can't they say he left the Joe Team in pursuit to further his skills as an Escoffier Chef and went on as an "Iron Chef" in that TV show. LOL.
To me, that Joe is well enough alive, and will get back with the Joe team if Heavy Duty steps down from his mantle of Heavy Machine Gunner.

I just watched the season 1 episodes last night, and noticed two things...
1. cant remember the name of the episodes, but one featured Ripcord throughout the entire episode...he was more then a background guy...
2. the episode right after featured(among others) Alpine...who I wouldve had NO problem if Wayans was playing him....
3. Roadblock didnt rhyme ALL the time...and so what if he did? the comic version didnt...

Mostly important we have to accept this movie because Hasbro says we have too.

I haven't seen a body, so I will not mourn the loss of my friend until then.

As for the film, I think that it features a cast that is multi-cultural in hopes it would bring out different demographics to the theater. I figured that for instance, the casting of Storm Shadow, casting a Korean and not a Japanese was for the purpose of cashing in on the Korean-Wave, Ripcord attracting a demographic known to enjoy the Wayans Brothers films and many more.
And as for Ripcord, it's like asking why for the Justice League animated show, they went with John Stewart (the African American Green Lantern) and not Hal Jordan or even Kyle Rayner. For the purpose of attracting children to buy superheroes that they can identify with?
As for Heavy Duty and not Roadblock, I think its the same thing with Sigma 6 who went strictly with HD. S6 and ROC has HD, Resolute has Roadblock. Have the characters been together in the comic series? I don't remember.
But I think that as much as we would like things not too change, studios are becoming more politically correct. Not just studios but you can see it in advertising from fast food to beer commercials. When I watch a commercial, you'll many trying to make the people multicultural.
Even in the video game, I don't know who the characters are but it seems that they were going for political correctness/multi-cultural as well.
We may be biased towards these characters but I can see pressure on the Hollywood studios to include more women, more ethnicities, especially for a film that has so many characters.
But of course, it depends on how it's implemented but the race card will always play an issue (ie Skids and Mudflap - "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" and a Caucasian Goku for "Dragonball Evolutions") in major films.
