* The DCNU {{New 52}} relaunch got "They changed it now it sucks" backlash ''before release''.

** There was some controversy surrounding the decision to retcon Comicbook/{{Cyborg}} into being a founding member of the [[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]], with some fans angered by what they saw as mucking around with the team's history for the sake of [[TokenMinority diversity]]. So far though, the new Justice League title has been the highest-seller of the reboot. It's not clear yet what happened to post-crisis/pre-flashpoint Huntress and Power Girl (they either got merged with the new ones or wiped from history). But the prospect of losing the characters they knew only to get back the (pre-crisis) characters only the writers remember doesn't sit too well with some current fans.

* The initial reaction to Creator/BrianMichaelBendis' controversial revamp of the ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' franchise, where he killed off longtime members ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}, [[ComicBook/AntMan Ant-Man]], and ComicBook/TheVision, and had Scarlet Witch go insane. The subsequent decision to add characters like {{Spider-Man}}, {{Wolverine}}, Echo, SpiderWoman, ComicBook/JessicaJones, [[ComicBook/LukeCageHeroForHire Luke Cage]] and [[ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]] to the team was also controversial amongst many old-school purists. However, Bendis' revamp of the franchise proved massively successful, at least from a financial standpoint.

* The main issue with Malibu's attempt at a ''StreetFighter'' [[ComicBook/MalibuComicsStreetFighter comic]]. They took so many liberties with the franchise's canon that {{Capcom}} ''literally stepped in and asked them to stop publishing it''.

* The main issue with Malibu's attempt at a ''StreetFighter'' [[ComicBook/MalibuComicsStreetFighter comic]]. They took so many liberties with the franchise's canon (including killing Ken - who, keep in mind, is one of the main characters of the franchise - in the ''second issue'') that {{Capcom}} ''literally stepped in and asked them to stop publishing it''.

* While Brazilian comic ''MonicasGang'' is frequently accused of making unnecessary changes as any other LongRunner comic, complete with a [[SpinoffBabies Spinoff]] [[NotAllowedToGrowUp Teenagers]] manga, there was once a good in-universe example: Penadinho (in English, ''Bug-a-Boo'') stars various stock monsters. One comic had the title character, a BedsheetGhost, coming by his FrankensteinsMonster friend, Frank, who is lamenting how the creature of ''Film/MaryShelleysFrankenstein'' looked. Then Frank reminds Bug-a-Boo of ''Film/{{Ghost}}''. Later two other characters, a vampire and a werewolf, complain about ''Film/{{Wolf}}''.

** Averted however, with [[spoiler: Ultimate Reed Richards' FaceHeelTurn and reemergence as supervillain "The Maker". The Ultimate Comics storyline depicting this was met with praise from critics and fans alike, and The Maker is widely considered to be one of the best things to come out of the Ultimate Universe.]].

* Some fans of the Ultimate Marvel line of comics are pretty clear about their opinion of the Ultimate Comics line: because it takes place after Ultimatum and as a result of it, all the stories in it are complete garbage and the people who likes it are bribed/tasteless/morons.

* ''OneMoreDay'': A very large proportion of the Spiderman fandom declared the storyline as its collective BerserkButton, after JoeQuesada considered dealing with Marvel's answer to Satan (who has since tacitly confirmed that he is Satan) a more realistic way to break up the much loved Spider Marriage than oh, divorce, or something like that. Due to this, the large amount of ExecutiveMeddling and the MarySue new love interest for Peter in the form of Carlie Cooper, it went down like a lead balloon.
