* AssPull: Doom suddenly taking responsibility for the Mutant Decimation was received by many as this.
* AuthorsSavingThrow: This story, for fans unhappy with what Bendis did to Scarlet Witch.
* BrokenBase: Over the decision to [[spoiler: save Scott Lang from his death during ''Avengers Disassembled'' via time travel]]. The aftermath is treated as still being part of the 616 universe, even though normally such an action would result in the creation of a new spinoff universe. People who like the character or dislike Bendis's work on Avengers consider it an AuthorsSavingThrow, but others accuse it of being ArmedWithCanon.
** The same trick was later used to [[spoiler: bring back Night Thrasher, who had originally died during ComicBook/CivilWar, in the ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel ComicBook/ContestOfChampions volume.]]
* TheWoobie: The Young Avengers, but Wiccan and Cassie especially.
