I know how you feel. I walked away years ago around the time of Disassembled. Chuck Austen dumbed down the Avengers so Bendis could take over the team the way he wanted (I guess. Unless Austen is just a craptacular writer and did his own thing with the few issues given him) and I snorted with disgust when Hawkeye died about the dumbest death in comics.
Just a lot of crap going on all over the place, from the lame Hulk stuff to The Lizard eating his own kid, I am just really disillusioned with comics these days. Except for Atlas and Guardians of The Galaxy I give the rest of the MU (and most of the DCU) a pass.
his runs on both X-Men and Avengers are almost universally agreed to be crap. So in that case it is a bad writer.
