    Is why Marvel is not appealing to me anymore.

    I mean I grew up in the late 70's and early 80's. Marvel constantly changed then...Tony got drunk and stopped being Iron Man, Bruce Banner takes over the Hulk, losses control and gets banished as a mindless creature, then separated into Banner and Hulk, then Rick Jones takes over, then turns grey, Donald Blake is killed off, Cap becomes the Captain, West Coast get their own branch of Avengers, my fav late 70's Avengers line up disbands, Defenders stop being Defenders, Jean Grey dies, old x-men leave, new x-men come back, Vision goes mad.

    There was just as much change then, as there is now, but, it's down to two things:
    1) I'm either just too old and need to pass the baton to the kids
    2) it's just way too forced, Rhodey was the most obvious choice to be Iron Man, Sam, I'm not sure of, that seems more dictated by editorial need for a black cap. I think Elijah Bradley would have been a better choice

eh...Sam was the logical choice. But they already did the replacement Cap thing with Bucky who was even less logical. Now Sam looks like a johnny come lately.

But that said...I agree with the rest. Marvel has become down right turgid this year. I was more optimistic after Civil War and Onslaught than I am now....and I hated those stories.

    I personally think it's a mixture of both
