I quit reading the 2 main Avengers books right when AvsX started. I'm just tired of the yearly mega crossovers. I really hate the way Marvel does their mega events now. I started collecting the new DCU, and I will admit it, I'm enjoying the DC titles way more then the few Marvel titles I collect.
I know they have to change things up now and then in the comic book world, but do they really need to cancel series because a writer is leaving? Do they really need to bring back the OG X-Men into the present day?
Marvel's biggest mistake is having so many Avengers and X-men titles. If they really want to increase sells, why not streamline all of of the X-Men and Avengers titles. Yes I know they are cancelling some of them, but I'm sure they will bring them back at some point.
I'm going to wait and see how things go... there is no reason to judge the stories until I have read them. I remember many people making statements about the DC reboot and claiming it would be horrible... but it has produced some great stories.
And, lets be honest. The future of Marvel comics isn't with the 20 - 40 year long readers... they, like any industry, need to bring in new and younger customers. If this change will work to do that while still providing quality stories about the characters I appreciate... then I think it is a good thing.
As far as restarting a series when the creative team leaves... I don't care one way or the other. I'll buy it if it is a #1 or a #600.
