      While saling have been falling, your reasoning has no legs. Marvel's been doing controversal stories to get people talking and get attention since the comic line began anew 50 years ago.

Controversial stories aren't a binary decision, its not either controversial or noncontroversial. There are degrees. And I would think that resurrecting Kraven would be a highly controversial move.
