All that I have feared for so many years has now come to pass. That's why I quit. I began in the 70's with Avengers # 128. I expressed one fear, too many Avengers, in a letters page from the Busiek era. But at least the book still looked likeThe Avengers. Then "disassemble" came and all hell broke loose. I was also afraid the regular Marvel Universe would be "ultimatized". It was. Even Fury is going to be Afro-American, now (nothing against Afro-Americans, don't misunderstand me). And my long-standing fear that the Avengers would turn into the X-Men. We had a taste way back when they started sporting leather jackets with the Avengers logo. Now: Uncanny Avengers. They killed it for me. A fan from 40 years back. So long.

No offense, but this seems like a pretty minor thing to quit reading over. The Uncanny Avengers is obviously something that will have a short shelf life. People started screaming when Spider-man revealed his ID as if it had any chance of sticking. Just enjoy the stories or else wait for something more to your liking. I don't see it as that big of a deal.
