not me, but I liked the idea. what's wrong with Blacks or latinos?
I agree. If they're going to change all the names and make them non-Japanese Characters, they might as well make it a multi-national and multi-racial cast.
Icarus is the son of Daedalus a great engineer who was imprisoned in a huge tower on an island for some reason. Daedelus created wax wings so that he and his son could escape. He warned his son not to fly to close to the sun because his wings would melt, but the boy didn't heed his father and flew too high which melted the wings, he fell to earth and drowned.
I knew the fable, I just couldn't remember the culural origin of the name itself.
(On a semi-related topic: Iron Maiden has a song called "The Flight of Icarus" about the myth)
Maiden fan, GandalfsWhisper?
