** There are a number of fans who called this trope when ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'' folded into the ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'', and then ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'' occurred, exacerbating the situation. This has led to said fans declaring that most, if not all, of the titles by DC have been stopped as of ''June 2003.'' While there have indeed been horrible plots and decisions by DC in later years, declaring that they consider most of DC's ModernAge discontinuity because of that is just bewildering. The first bullet on this folder sums up what the situation ''really'' is. Of course, with the ComicBook/{{New 52}} it kinda ended up happening anyways...

*** Blame it on [[JoeQuesada Quesada]]. They were originally supposed to be Peter's kids, but about halfway through, Quesada thought that would have made him too old. Which also implies that would somehow not apply to Gwen, even though she's roughly the same age as Peter. It would have made more sense if that had been something like Ultimate Black Cat but Gwen? Nope. Not happening.

** This complaint is likely due to PublicMediumIgnorance. People claim Disney will make Marvel more kid-friendly, not realizing that Disney has owned plenty of non kid-friendly stuff without [[ExecutiveMeddling meddling with it]] (including the studio [[MiramaxFilms Miramax]], which has released R-rated films like ''Film/PulpFiction''). Or thinking that kid-friendly means sunshine and lollipops. It is possible to find a level that's kid-friendly but still entertaining for adults, as Disney has shown with...pretty much all of their animated movies.

* The 2010-2011 ''WonderWoman'' reboot provoked a reaction like this; partly due to the costume redesign which gave Wonder Woman pants rather than her traditional star-spangled panties (which also introduced a bit of UnpleasableFanbase, since the previous looks had frequently been criticized for being {{Stripperiffic}}), and partly due to the nature of the storyline, which saw Wonder Woman's past continuity rebooted into an AlternateHistory, removing many of the traditional elements of her backstory and canon. Despite the fact that it was acknowledged upfront that this timeline was an aberration to what was supposed to happen and that the plot was to involve WonderWoman [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong Setting Right What Once Went Wrong]], a lot of fans still complained about [[CompletelyMissingThePoint how they'd changed everything]].

* The beloved, retro Belgian comic ''ComicBook/{{Tintin}}'' has been made into [[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin an English movie]] by [[Film/JurassicPark Steven]] [[Franchise/IndianaJones Spielberg]], with realistic motion-capture CGI animation, and [[FelonyMisdemeanor in 3D.]]

* Captain America is a HYDRA supporter has some fans in arms.
** Not without reason, considering the character's creators are of Jewish descent

* ''StarWarsLegacy'' some were displeased that the semi-good Fel Empire overthrew the Galactic Alliance with help from the ObviouslyEvil Sith. The latest Skywalker is less than good, and more of a jerky AntiHero.

* Since 2010, ArchieComics has been in dispute with former head writer Ken Penders over characters he created for the ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' series. Things came to a head when, in early 2013, two storylines, "The Chaotix Quest" and "Endangered Species" were changed to get rid of virtually ''hundreds'' of characters in the middle of the stories. Then came the revelations that the cases had been dismissed and Ken Penders' ballywhooing that he had won back all of the characters he created, that Archie couldn't use them and that he was going to make ''better'' stories with them. The altered comics have caused fans to cry foul.

* When news broke in 2011 that {{DC Comics}} were going to [[ContinuityReboot reboot]] their line of superhero comics back to #1 issues[[note]]yes, even those series that have upwards of ''800'' issues by now[[/note]], the prevailing fan reaction was essentially this trope.

* Though ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}'' and Marvel have had to weather any number of these moments with varying levels of justification, ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'' seems to have been the mother of them all.

* People called the twist at the end of ''[[ComicBook/SpiderMan Amazing Spider-Man]]'' #698, in which [[spoiler:Doctor Octopus hijacks Peter's body and leaves Peter's mind to apparently die in his own broken body]] "the worst story since ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay''" on the ''very day'' the issue was released...the story led to a new long-term status quoe and a relaunch for the character that has seen many a person in the book be handed the IdiotBall. Opinion is still divided on whether the book is the shot in the arm the franchise needs, or the final shot in the head it richly deserves.
