With the Marvel Now relaunch approaching 9 months in, which title(s) do you think are most in need of a change? A change could be a change in the status quo, of the story, characters, or creators. Let's also keep in narrowed own to the books that were launched with Marvel Now.

A breakdown of eligible titles:
Avengers: Uncanny Avengers, A+X, Captain America, Indestructible Hulk, Iron Man, Thor God of Thunder, Avengers, New Avengers, Young Avengers, Secret Avengers

X-Men: All New X-Men, X-Men Legacy, Cable and X-Force, Savage Wolverine, Uncanny X-Force, Uncanny X-Men, Wolverine, X-Men

Marvel Heroes: Deadpool, Fantastic Four, FF, Thunderbolts, Superior Spider-Man, Fearless Defenders, Guardians of the Galaxy,

For me, I think the biggest disappointment has been the Fantastic Four and FF titles. Compared to the previous run with Hickman, the title just doesn't feel that exciting anymore. Fraction has taken the main team on a cosmic/time adventure that lasts a year, and I could no longer stick around on the title waiting for that story to end. FF just became uninteresting as well. Everything about the titles is just boring. I think the only thing that can fix these title to change everything about them, from the stories to the creators. Mike Allred and Bagley are wasted on the titles. I'd much rather see Bagley on Wolverine and the X-Men and Allred on anything else.

Additionally, Deadpool and Cable and X-Force are both disappointing titles. I was a fan of Way's title with Deadpool, but the new writers just don't get the character with the one-lines. Deadpool is funny/insane not a stand up comic. Cable and X-Force just isn't a good title period. Just two more titles that need to be completely changed.

A+X always struck me as a temporary title. I'm suprised that its hasnt been cancelled yet.

Cap has been awful - possibly the worst story with the worst art Ive ever read on the title. What is wrong with JrJr? I recall a time when he could draw, but his work on Cap makes him look like he just doesnt care.

Ironman has failed to impress me. They seem to be trying to make him sarcastic and witty like the Downey Jr character, but it just doesnt work in print and he just comes off as a bit of an ass. Then there was the whole Tony allowing his suits A.I to kill a room full of innocent victims, Greg Lands art (thank god thats over), and the current story whereby Stark is only a genius because of some extra-terrestrial jiggery-pokery just doesnt make much sense when you consider how many incredibly geniuses the MU has who werent probed by an alien.

So Ironman needs a kick in the pants for me.

Theres not enough going on with Wolverine to support two solo titles, and neither has really impressed me yet.

I'd happily see Secret avengers burn simply because of the presence of Fury Jnr and Coulson, which is a shame because I like the concept.

I agree about Deadpool - at least in the beginning where it just seemed to be a bunch of tit and fart gags and a really dull story about dead presidents. Its improved a little in the last few issues.

Cable and X-Force is a title I really want to buck up because I love the team line up, but its taking a long time to get nowhere.

Ive greatly enjoyed Uncanny Avengers, Superior Spidey, Daredevil, Hawkeye and Thor.
