** Slott's decision to make Peter the CEO of a successful company where he gets to actually use his scientific know-how is disliked by those who think Peter should be broke and desperate. Likewise, having Peter travel the world with "his bodyguard" Spider-man is a hated move amongst fans who feel that Spidey should stick to New York. The fact that Peter left New York in the hands of the new Spider-man, Miles Morales, rarely gets acknowledged by those complaining.

It mainly comes down to those who feel Peter Parker, the guy who pioneered the relatable superhero, is now incredibly unrelatable and is an Expy of Iron Man.

** 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.

** The revelation on the post-''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'' that [[spoiler:she somehow managed to convince Silk to be part of her criminal enterprise]] and she ''absolutely loathes'' the latter trying to be the TokenGoodTeammate (and all of her appearances before that having her being a sociopathic harridan that sees [[spoiler:killing Silk's only means to find her parents]] as "a favor" and seriously wants to recruit people by convincing them that NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished and Evil Pays Better (well, it ''will'' with her in charge-she's gunning to become the next Kingpin of New York)).... yeah, people are hating the new her very much.

* While Brazilian comic ''ComicBook/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}}''.

* ''Batman Reborn'' and ''Superman: ComicBook/NewKrypton'', two events released around the same time, garnered similar responses, at least initially. Superman was pulled out of ''Superman'' and ''ComicBook/ActionComics'', with those books being taken over by Mon-El and Nightwing and Flamebird respectively, while Damian Wayne was made into the new Robin, Dick Grayson into the new Batman, and Stephanie Brown into the new ComicBook/{{Batgirl}}. The flagship title ''DetectiveComics'' was also given to ComicBook/{{Batwoman}}. While Batman Reborn proved to be a massive success, New Krypton was met with almost-universal critical panning and falling sales. The New Krypton event was eventually CutShort, and Superman was brought back to his namesake series.

* WonderWoman's revamp initially to be got this reaction, the general consensus being that the coolest thing about it would be watching the fan's reactions. The first two issues were met with massive acclaim and were extremely strong sellers though. It's been said that it successfully got readers not normally interested in Wonder Woman to check it out. One change in particular that upset many fans was the fact that Diana is apparently Zeus's daughter.

* Spider-Man supporting character, ComicBook/BlackCat, has a few changes that were reacted to negatively by many fans:
** During the events of ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan'' Felicia was attacked by Spider-Ock, and she wound up swearing to get revenge. After Peter's return she became an outright AxCrazy psycho who wants to destroy everything about him and doesn't care that he was under someone else's control, attempting to harm anyone and everything else in the process and even joining forces with several past Spider-Man villains to do so, even several that she used to be enemies with. Fans of Felicia in her AntiHero days have not been happy. The not so subtle implication that this was all done primarily to further solidify [[CreatorsPet Silk]] as Peter's love interest didn't help.
** The revelation on the post-''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'' that [[spoiler:she somehow managed to convince Silk to be part of her criminal enterprise]] and she ''absolutely loathes'' the latter trying to be the TokenGoodTeammate (and all of her appearances before that having her being a sociopathic harridan that sees [[spoiler:killing Silk's only means to find her parents]] as "a favor" and seriously wants to recruit people by convincing them that NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished and Evil Pays Better (well, it ''will'' with her in charge-she's gunning to become the next Kingpin of New York)).... yeah, people are hating the new her very much.
** Creator/KevinSmith {{retcon}}ning RapeAsBackstory for Black Cat's origin was received negatively by many fans, who saw it as the unnecessary darkening of what'd been a rather light-hearted character.

* The most recent example of this trope came after the first issue of ''Captain America: Steve Rogers'' where TheStinger is [[spoiler: that not only is Steve now a member of HYDRA, but has been so since the beginning.]] Fans have taken this as a slap in the face and have taken to Twitter and Tumblr to express their dislike and some have vowed to boycott the series or Marvel in general until this is Retconned Some fans believe it's a cheap comic gimmick to be retconned after all the hate, while others see it as a disgrace to the original works of Jack Kirby and Joe Simon and to Veterens and America as a whole.
