with civil war, secret invasion and dark reign the books became too dark the heroes took too much punishment we need LIGHT we need HOPE we need our comics to be FUN again!
will marvel do it? even only for a short time?
have CAP come back and SAVE THE WORLD FROM THE BAD GUYS.

What's "light" mean? Are we talking the tone of the titles, or of the Marvel U itself? Does it mean you want more comedy? Or less violence? Or more throwaway stories? Does it mean you want more books rated PG instead of PG13?

The tone of the Marvel U is up to the books themselves. Shouldn't the fact that people are fighting against the "Dark Reign" instill hope? That no matter how much the odds are against these heroes, they still continue to fight, act like heroes, and stay true to who they are?

There are books that I would consider light, like Incredible Herc, Runaways, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Hulk, the New and Mighty Avengers, GOTG, A:I, etc. Some other books I think just work better as darker titles, like the Dark Avengers, Thunderbolts, Wolverine, Punisher, Daredevil, Ghost Rider, etc.

Saying "the Marvel Adventures line doesn't count" is a stupid argument. If you want lighter comics, you can get them there. So you don't want lighter comics, you want lighter 616 comics? How does that work? Are you willing to buy any 616 title as long as it's light? Then I guess you buy titles like the ones mentioned in the previous paragraph? Is Marvel going to have to create two of each titles, say a Dark X-Men and a Light X-Men, just to suit your needs?

Saying "darker stories don't allow me to escape in the stories" is a stupid argument. None of these characters are real, superpowers don't exist in the real world, HAMMER isn't going to hurt you, etc. Whether a story is dark or light should have no bearing on whether it allows you to "escape". I never understood the "escape in stories" thing either. I read comics because I enjoy them, not because I want to escape. Maybe it's a self esteem thing.

And the Nintendo DS joke was great.
