* ''Film/JupiterAscending'' repeats the exact same plotline twice in its final act. Jupiter gets captured by one of the Abrasax siblings who tries to blackmail her into giving her "queen of earth" title to them, and Channing Tatum and Sean Bean's characters stage a daring rescue attempt. The first time she's rescued, she's almost immediately captured again and the same plot repeats itself.

* The ComicBook/MarvelUniverse in general has always been pretty prone to use LetsYouAndHimFight, but as far back as ''at least'' ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' things have escalated to full-blown "WithUsOrAgainstUs" wars that keep swearing up and down that will change the Marvel Universe "forever" and have extended periods of people hating each other in the aftermath, then cooling down... and then along comes ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'', Johnathan Hickman's ''Avengers'' run, and ''now'' we have ''[[ComicBook/CivilWarII Civil War]] [[ComicBook/CivilWarII TWO]]''... ''and'' there is a "Mutants Vs. Inhumans" coming up in the near future... It has come to the point when people don't really know what to think of the situation, [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy and some people have actually quit reading Marvel Comics in disgust]].
