* BaseBreakingCharacter: Eddie Brock: Either a complex [[{{Badass}} badass]] who should be in more comics or a boring, one-dimensional NinetiesAntiHero [[TheArtifact artifact]] that needs to just go away. This depends largely on whether he's playing the villain or the hero.

Added DiffLines:

* FandomRivalry: An internal one is developing from fans of the comics towards the [[MarvelCinematicUniverse films]]. While it's hardly the first time [[{{Retcanon}} adaptations have influenced the comics]], these fans believe Marvel is letting the films turn into a tail that wags the dog at the expense of drastically rear-ending previously established characterizations, storylines, and design elements, sometimes for entire series.

* EndingFatigue: Roderick's story went on for several years with two unmasking teases before picking a character who was already dead to be him (later revealed to be a fake 10 years later).

* LoveItOrHateIt: ''Oh boy.'' While the shows are usually praised for their voice cast (Getting a lot of great talent from the Los Angeles VA scene), these shows are sure to spark passionate debates when brought up:
** ''USM'' was pretty despised for the most part (Despite having a successful merchandise line) by the Spidey fandom, in part because it followed up on ''Spectacular Spider Man'' and in part because of Drake Bell's mixed performance. Season 3 (Web Warriors) made most fans concede that it could be good, but there were still inherent issues in the show.
** ''Hulk'' is the most negatively received show, being the most outwardly childish, multiple animation errors and for having a lackluster premise.

** Dr. Pym. First wife, dead. Second wife, dead. His robot son? Genocidal killing machine. The only robot son that wasn't genocidal? Killed by his genocidal brother. Best friend, Bill Foster, murdered. Other best friend, Scott Lang, was dead for a time and barely talks to him anymore. Just about anyone he ever cared about has wound up dead. He's had at least four documented mental break downs and all of his inventions have been turned to criminal use, tarnishing his scientific legacy. It doth suck to be Hank Pym.

And all of this was before he was merged with the aforementioned killing machine, launched into space, and forgotten about. It doth suck to be Hank Pym.

* DorkAge: ''Civil War'' and ''Avengers Vs X-Men''

to:

* DorkAge: ''Civil War'' and ''Avengers Vs X-Men''X-Men''. Some people are being quick to also add the 2016 ''Secret Wars'' (because of it ending the ''Ultimate'' universe and bringing its characters to the 616) and the second ''Civil War'' to this.

* SupposedlyRebelliousSeries: A lot of Marvel fans take pride in Marvel's origins as a rebellious series that pushed boundaries, forgetting that this was largely a trait of TheSixties and not as true of the eras that came later:
** It is true that in its early years, Marvel upset many conventions: neurotic characters, Teenage Hero instead of KidSidekick, stories set in real-world cities, superheroes who had no SecretIdentity (like the Fantastic Four). In its early years it even averted ComicBookTime and showed characters growing and changing as the story advanced with Reed and Sue marrying in the original run of the Fantastic Four, Spiderman going from High School to College. From the 70s, Marvel adopted ComicBookTime, engaged in SoapOpera plots and teases in the grand 50s Superman tradition and advocated the "illusion of change", big event comics that seemed to make changes only for it to get hastily retconned.
** As noted by Creator/AlanMoore in his article (for Marvel UK's magazine ''Daredevils') "Blinded by the Hype":
--> '''[[http://geektyrant.com/news/2012/9/25/alan-moores-lost-stan-lee-essay.html Alan Moore]]''':''You see, somewhere along the line, one of the newer breed of Marvel editors ... had come up with one of those incredibly snappy sounding and utterly stupid little pieces of folk-wisdom that some editors seem to like pulling out of the hat from time to time... 'Readers donít want change. Readers only want the illusion of change.' Like I said, [[ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime it sounds perceptive and well-reasoned on first listening]]. It is also, in my opinion, one of the most specious and retarded theories that it has ever been my misfortune to come across ... If readers are that averse to change then [[ArmorPiercingQuestion how come Marvel ever got to be so popular in the first place]], [[TheSixties back when]] [[Creator/JackKirby constant change]] and [[Creator/SteveDitko innovation]] was [[GloryDays the order of the day]]?



** ''Avengers Assemble'', like ''USM'', has the burden of following from a well received Marvel show, in this case ''Earth's Mightiest Heroes.'' Season 1 was decried for too much focus on Tony (And his VA has also gotten mixed reception), a controversial version of Falcon, and female fans were incensed at how Black Widow was pretty much the ''only'' female character in Season 1, and even she was absent for several episodes. Season 2 has been seen as an overall improvement, with Widow now in every episode, Falcon getting a new and improved redesign and more focus on the team as a whole.

* CrapsackWorld: ZigZaggedTrope. While there's obviously a lot of problems in the Marvel Universe and [[BadFuture Bad Futures]] are constantly having to be thwarted, none of this changes the fact that there's a lot of good people fighting to make the world a better place. Generally this trope seems more prevalent in the X-titles, due to the need to display bigotry in order to make the reader understand why the X-Men are fighting. It's really more of a WorldHalfFull.

* FanonDiscontinuity: [[Comicbook/TheFalcon Sam Wilson]] was ''never'' a pimp, ''ever''.

to:

* FanonDiscontinuity: [[Comicbook/TheFalcon Sam Wilson]] was ''never'' a pimp, ''ever''. (As of ''All New Captain America'' this is the official canon, explicitly stating that the pimp origin as false memories implanted by the Red Skull to make Sam question his identity).
