* There was a Usenet meme: "[[Comicbook/XMen Jean Grey is dead on the moon]]." The theory was that Jean Grey being resurrected for ''Comicbook/{{X-Factor}}'', the {{retcon}}'s effect on the original "Dark Phoenix Saga", and the CharacterDerailment inflicted on Cyclops and his marriage was where the ''X-Men'' franchise [[JumpTheShark Jumped The Shark]].
** Yet two wrongs don't make a right, and the Emma Frost thing doesn't sit too well with some fans either.
** Then again, Jean even dating Scott is FanonDiscontinuity for the Jean/Logan fans, so there seems to be a line where this goes too far and just makes for messy fanon.

* What do you mean ''ComicBook/CaptainAmerica'' was secretly a [[ThoseWackyNazis Hydra agent]] the whole time? Captain America, created by JoeSimon and JackKirby, both of whom were Jewish? Who had his [[BuckyBarnes best friend]] kidnapped, tortured, and brainwashed by them? Who witnessed the atrocities of WorldWarII firsthand? Who witnessed the atrocities committed by Hydra post-iceberg? Oh, certainly you jest. Also, his [[TheIrishDiaspora Irish immigrant father]] was not an abusive drunk, nor was his nurse mother ever a Hydra supporter. What nonsense. This is a relatively recent development, but the backlash from fans is already staggering. The hashtag "Say No to HYDRA Cap" is currently trending on Twitter, and things look to only grow from here.

* A good number of ''ComicBook/{{Batwoman}}'' fans refuse to accept anything from Marc Andreyko's run, which began after the contentious departure of the original creative team and featured such things as the title character undergoing BadassDecay, breaking up with her fiancée, becoming a vampire's sex slave, and fighting enemies in space.

* The Marvel ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' spawned a ''massive'' DorkAge, what with Robbie Baldwin ditching his Speedball identity to become the {{Wangst}}y Penance because of an explosion that wasn't even his fault, ComicBook/IronMan becoming a major-league {{Jerkass}}, and Spider-man willingly unmasking himself on national television. Hence, some fans have decided that ''Civil War'' never happened. There ''was'' a fan parody called "I Don't Need Your Civil War," created from leaked pages for some aborted project or other. The reasoning behind the name is a ShoutOut to Guns N' Roses.

* Fans of ''[[Franchise/{{Tintin}} The Adventures of Tintin]]'' prefer to not talk about Tintin in The Congo, due to its racist and colonialist tone as well as animal cruelty, and to a lesser extent because Tintin's characterization in it doesn't fit with the later stories. Even Hergé himself [[OldShame was embarrassed by it]].

Even Hergé himself [[OldShame was embarrassed by it]]. Some also pretend that Tintin in the Land of the Soviets and Tintin in America never happen neither because they're are RandomEventsPlot and consider Cigars of the Pharaoh or The Blue Lotus as the first "real" start of the series. It helps that the early albums are not referenced much in later stories.

** Well let's just say ''Stormwatch''/''The Authority'' fans were not too pleased with the redesigns... is that a SPIKE? On his CHIN??? Not to mention {{Stormwatch}} fans were less than amused to learn that their team's more popular spin off had taken over their comic's name and the few heroes who have shown up in cameos are apparently now evil.
