* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' brought in a new art style and a completely new set of storylines while keeping as many old characters as they could. Their main new character, Spyke, failed testing and [[PutOnABus was written out]] (and a version of him was even executed by Wolverine in the unrelated ''X3'' in a cool, but one-sided fight).

This is where the problem arises. Take for instance a comic book being turned into a movie. Most comics have up to 70 years of {{backstory}}, cool sequences, and ranging from a handful to an army of cool heroes and villains. All that has to be crammed into a two-hour presentation or the fans are upset. Meanwhile, it has to be perfectly understandable, and -- more importantly -- easy to follow, [[ContinuityLockout or else the new blood won't like it]].

* ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' is in the same situation as SinCity, except instead they had to cut and compress more content for time (some re-instated in DVD), didn't keep the visual style (although keeping most of the framing intact), and deciding this time to ''keep'' the male nudity.

* Later {{Radiohead}} albums have been trying to strike this sort of balance; ''In Rainbows'' successfully, ''Hail to the Thief'' perhaps less so.

** The comic mini-series (released by Marvel) split the difference; making Billy and Jimmy twin super-hero ninjas powered by a mystical statue. It also featured a SoBadItsGood extended cameo by [[spoiler:StanLee as Billy and Jimmy's biological father.]]

* JJAbrams' two [[Film/StarTrek Star Trek]] [[Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness films]] were praised by critics and loved by fans new and old alike. There is a VocalMinority of Old Guard fans that insist that both films (especially the second) are not "true" Star Trek movies.

* ''DungeonsAndDragons'' the movie: Suffered severely from conflicting ideas that they wanted to attract the ''Dungeons and Dragons'' fanbase and at the same time alienate themselves from them for fear of being associated with "losers." As a result the movie was written by somebody who had never played the game, and the movie has lip service to the game and nothing else. A token, 5'4" dwarf, clerical magic being only accessible to elves, and Beholders that don't take advantage of the fact that they can look in all directions at once are just a few of the conflicts.
