As a Hulk fan, I have heard numerous complaints over the years about the various changes made to the book over time.
Now, I respect other peoples's feelings, so I hope you won't take this personally, but my feeling has always been this: A comic book often goes on and on for decades. A character like Batman tends to stay in a given state for hundreds of issues. So, let's say they do something like make a Grey or Red Hulk or have Dick be Batman for a while... Man, if you don't like it, there are decades of stories you did like, and if you really hate change, you can read those issues over and over again. Because as far as I can see, the new stories you think you want to see would be just like the old ones.
When I hear comics fans complain about big changes in storylines, i wonder why they buy any new comics at all, other than just the few issues they liked.
Another point to ponder is that what you see as the desireable status quo was at one point itself a massive change of some sort. If creative teams avoided making big ambitious changes and new ideas, they wold not arrive at stories people will one day love as their own desired status quo.
