Particularly if one is invested in the Marvel universe as a whole, I think it is well within the parameters of acceptability to go on a message board and complain about the overuse of a character.

The only way for someone to be invested in the Marvel Universe as a whole is for them to buy every single issue that Marvel has ever published. If they do not, then they are only investing in a portion of the Marvel Universe and in that particular title or titles they buy.

Complaining about an overused character that the person complaining doesn't bother to read the actual issues that the character appears in is like a lactose intolerant person complaining that just by looking at milk it gives them diarrhea.

That's not true at all. I've got a few issues from just about every corner of the MU, running the gambit from the 60s to today. I like to have an idea of what's going on, and have a vested interest in the wider MU as a whole, but I can't afford to buy EVERYTHING.
