* 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.

** Slott's decision to make Peter the CEO of a successful company where he gets to actually use his scientific know-how was one thing 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.

* The ending to ''Amazing SpiderMan'' #700, which has [[spoiler:Peter Parker dying in Dr. Octopus' body and [[GrandTheftMe Dr. Octopus taking over as the new Superior Spider-Man in Peter's body]] ]], was met with this reaction after it was leaked two weeks before the issue hit the stands. Many who were interested in it before either decided to abandon it or tried to send death threats to Dan Slott. Numbers dropped even further with the apparent end of the HopeSpot in ''[[Comicbook/SuperiorSpiderMan Superior Spider-Man]]'' #9, criticisms including the plot mandated IdiotBall handling of the Avengers and X-Men, and not noticing [[spoiler: a full blown psychic possession]] in a universe chock full of powerful telepaths.

* Dan Slott's ''M.O.'' is making dramatic changes to ComicBook/SpiderMan, which usually goes over poorly with longtime readers.

** The Spider-verse event went over poorly with a lot of readers due to the long-lasting effects it had on several universes, specifically characters getting killed off.

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

* 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''.

* 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}}''.
