** Indeed, ''all'' the major cosmic entities tend to be this in a crisis. They'll just stand around talking about the problem, argue over whether they should do anything, and proceed to be of no actual use even if they do.
** The One Above All probably gets points for being the most powerful bystander of all. They are entirely omnipotent, can see everything that goes on in the omniverse... and their only weapon is [[ThePowerOfLove love]].

** In recent years in a push to make the world DarkerAndEdgier, the civilian populace has shown a desire, nay, ''eagerness'' to turn on the superhero community. Much of that can be laid at [[ComicBook/SpiderMan J. Jonah Jameson]]'s hatred of Spider-Man and the rest of the heroes leading him to spin the story with his various media outlets, but then there is the civilians emphatically embrace anything and everything that curtails their civil liberties and gives as much power as possible to megalomaniacal psychopaths. This is notable when ComicBook/NormanOsborn returns after the Siege of Asgard fiasco: the Avengers suddenly find themselves accosted by picket lines in front of Avengers Mansion and protesting their role in peacekeeping (never mind that ''the President of the U.S. himself put Steven Rogers in charge of American security and fully supports him''), thanks to Osborn manipulating the common people into thinking the Avengers are war criminals (which they apparently forgot he himself was). At times, one wonders why the heroes don't just let ComicBook/{{Galactus}} eat the planet.

** The fact that the majority of Marvel's heroes, and the majority of the action therefore, is set in, and takes place in New York becomes this. Especially the case for the street-level heroes such as Spider-Man, The Punisher, and Daredevil. The rising costs of living, and greater gentrification, and the historical low crime rates of TheNineties and TheOughties makes the superhero careers of some of them very improbable and unlikely in terms of verisimilitude (especially Daredevil and The Punisher, since they largely fight non-powered villains, whereas Spider-Man's super-powered villains are purely fantastic) especially since TheBigRottenApple era, which justified much of the early action is gone. The Punisher as a VigilanteHero in New York makes even less sense with the very tough anti-gun laws of the city. Ben Grimm, a Jewish origin WorkingClassHero from Brooklyn who in his youth was part of the Yancy Street Gang is more or less a GrandfatherClause since the specific neighbourhood he is associated with is gentrified.

* TheArtifact: Marvel in its early years positioned itself in the Golden Lee-Kirby-Ditko era as the edgy alternative to DC and its ConstructedWorld setting (i.e. Gotham, Metropolis, Central City). It also averted ComicBookTime in its early years having characters age as per the stories. Eventually it became a standardized comic universe sometime at the end of the '60s which has the effect of making many of its stories feel dated:

** Much of what is considered the classic Spider-Man story setting, i.e. Peter worried about his Aunt May, balancing his superhero career with his studies, and making a living by taking pictures of Spider-Man for J. Jonah Jameson's Daily Bugle is pretty much hard to do realistically. On account of rising costs of living, Peter can't believably operate as a low-income struggling scrapper in New York, without some form of FriendsRentControl. The development of digital and smartphones, makes the idea that Spider-Man could only be captured by a single shutterbug with inside knowledge hard to accept[[note]]In the era of film cameras where they had to be handled manually with ISO, F-Stop, and special film stock to capture light quickly, and at night, it was believable[[/note]], and the lower crime rates makes the drama of Peter balancing work with personal life feel disjointed. Recent comics, under Dan Slott have actually [[ReimaginingTheArtifact updated much of this]] but these elements are so iconic that they remain the most widely known parts of his mythos, and was adapted intact in the ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy'' mostly via AnachronismStew.
** The fact that many of Marvel's tech businesses and geniuses are located in New York doesn't quite square with reality, since most of America's tech geniuses and brands especially in the recent era work in Silicon Valley, (the ''Film/AntMan'' film is set in the San Francisco Bay Area for this reason). On the East Coast, tech geniuses mainly concentrate around Boston (because M. I. T.). Someone like Reed Richards and the Fantastic Four living in a prominent skyscraper in Manhattan, aka richer-than-god real estate, and subsisting on patents despite being [[ReedRichardsIsUseless famously useless]] is arguably the most fantastic part of the Fantastic Four these days.
** A few of Marvel's most famous heroes and villains are quite era-specific. Captain America is an actual UsefulNotes/WorldWarII PropagandaHero (albeit one made ''before'' America's entry of the war, i.e. premature anti-fascism), Red Skull is an actual Nazi, as is Baron Zemo, Arnim Zola among others. Since Captain America was thawed out of ice after more than a decade in the Silver Age, his de-thawing merely gets time-shifted and updated with the period of time in which he was a HumanPopsicle becoming extended. ComicBook/{{Magneto}}, who became an actual Holocaust survivor under Creator/ChrisClaremont's run in TheSeventies, cannot quite make use of the same gimmick, so any contemporary X-Men story going forward will age him considerably. ''ComicBook/IronMan'' originated as anti-communist capitalist ScienceHero with the fall of the wall, requiring much SettingUpdate in his stories (the MCU updates him to TheWarOnTerror).
