* How many people treat the Sixth Doctor strip "The World Shapers" from ''[[Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine Doctor Who Magazine]]'', for its explanation of the Cybermen's origins (especially when compared to the [[AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho Big Finish]] audio story [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho034SpareParts Spare Parts]], considered the definitive Cybermen origin story). Some fans also dismiss the same story because of the rather sad (albeit heroic) fate it depicts for Jamie. Of course this is the [[Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse Doctor Who Expanded Universe]], with a canon that is very BroadStrokes.

** The Holiday 2014 comic has reached massive criticism for how badly Sunset Shimmer was treated by all the characters (who were totally out of character compared to the movies) when they suspected her of being the one leaking embarrassing information on them based on little evidence and how they didn't bother hearing her side of the story until she proved that it wasn't her and uncovered the real culprits. So most people either it pretends it doesn't exist or desperately wants it to. And ''every single review'' is made to encourage people not to bother reading it at all.
** Thanks to massive EndingAversion [[note]]All of the buildup regarding Celestia, Twilight, Luna, the '''''Elements/Tree of Harmony''''', etc., are blatantly ContinuitySnarl'd and DiabolusExMachina'd to the wayside in favor of [[BaseBreakingCharacter Starlight]] [[CreatorsPet Glimmer]] [[SpotlightStealingSquad being the one to save the day]].[[/note]], "Chaos Theory" gets this roughly as bad as the aforementioned Holiday 2014 comic. What's especially tragic is that the prior issues of the arc are often regarded as decent.

** Even fans of the comics consider the "Nightmare Rarity" arc (Issues 5-8) to be AU at best due to its {{retcon}}ning of how Nightmare Moon came to be (which was itself debatably {{retcon}}ned by [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E1PrincessTwilightSparklePart1 the Season 4 premiere]]). Many fans prefer Nightmare Moon to have been a voluntary thing done by a jealous, angry Luna instead of her being corrupted by an outside force. A similar but smaller group of MLP:IDW fans vocally ignore the "Reflections" arc (Issues 17-20) due to their disliking the existence of a ''second'' magic mirror similar to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls the first one]] and ''really'' not liking what they consider Celestia's CharacterDerailment. ''Friends Forever Issue #14'' (with the Dragon Town) is ignored and unmentioned by all except for the [[{{Hatedom}} people who hate it]].

** ''[[ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheRift The Rift]]'' and ''[[ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderNorthAndSouth NorthAndSouth]]'' avert this since they're more well-received by fans than the other three graphic novels, especially that the former focuses on Toph and the latter focuses on Katara and Sokka.

* Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch fans disregard the {{Retcon}} that [[spoiler:they're not Magneto's children]] in ''ComicBook/{{Axis}}'' as canon. Most of these fans figure that this will be retconned back once the X-Men movie rights revert back to Marvel, while others blame Marvel for retconning their origins to fit in with their MarvelCinematicUniverse counterparts.

** ''[[ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderSmokeAndShadow Smoke and Shadow]]'' has also fallen into this among Azula fans who want her to redeem herself in which near the end of part 3 has [[spoiler:Azula running away in defeat again]].

** ''[[ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderSmokeAndShadow Smoke and Shadow]]'' has also fallen into this among Azula fans who want her to redeem herself in which near the end of part 3 has [[spoiler:Azula running away in defeat again]]. There is also the fact that Mai suffers from a massive DesignatedHero syndrome in that we are supposed to agree and sympathize with her but end up becoming a completely unlikable character especially how much she treats Zuko.

*** CapWolf might be an in-universe DethroningMomentOfSuck, too. When writer Nick Spencer manipulated Sam Wilson into becoming the All-New, All-Different CapWolf, Misty Knight was ''delighted.'' Her only fear was that Sam would find a cure before she had a chance to work through her gigantic stock of insulting jokes about the situation.


Added DiffLines:

** Of course, the writer followed this up pretty rapidly by revealing that it's all an in-universe retcon happening thanks to the Red Skull getting access to Cosmic Cube powers. Considering that this is exactly the sort of thing the Cube was created for back in the Silver Age, long-time Cap fans are rather anti-surprised. The final verdict on whether this story arc is dumb or brilliant remains up in the air.

* Ask SpiderMan fans, and they'll tell you that Mary Jane and Peter Parker are still happily married. ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'' was a rejected idea by [[RunningTheAsylum a fan]] who hated the last 30 years of ''Spider-Man''.



* The success of 2015's "Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows" SecretWars tie-in led eventually to an ongoing series a year later which sees Peter, MJ, and their daughter Annie May Parker, all fight crime with Spider-Powers. Many fans are hoping that, following the recent success of DC with the Superman titles, Marvel will follow their lead and reveal the Parker family of the RYV universe are in fact the real versions of the characters missing since OMD/BND, and will replace the much disliked current versions of the characters in the main Marvel universe. Dan Slott, playing mind games as usual with the fans, even hinted that there was a connection between the RYV and 616/Earth Prime realities in his 2016 "Power Play" event.
