    It's funny how people can see the same thing so differently. I started reading Marvel comics in the late '80's and by the end of the 90's my interest in them had been killed off nearly completely.

    I think there's a correlation there, and I agree you on at least this much. Most of what is going on right now is a carbon copy of what was going on in the 90s. Every event of the past decade, with the exceptions of WWH and Annihilation, has been little more than a gimmick.

Ehh. The things that drove me away seem to have been somewhat mitigated: fewer characters with compound names that involve "blood" or "death"; less of a trying-to-be-badass post-Image vibe; fewer "bad girl" costume designs that look like softcore porn; a comics lineup that isn't 100% white dudes; fewer books written by Scott Lobdell or drawn by Rob Liefeld, etc etc.

I don't care for the big crossovers either, though.
