    i think the concept of a daddy warbucks is offensive in a black storyline, given the historical influences of pimps and white devil slave masters and whatnot.

    they scrapped it because they already introduced a character named reggie to the regular richie rich comic books (reggie van dough), so they didn't want redundancies in characters.
