YMMV: The Children's Crusade
- Ass Pull: Doom suddenly taking responsibility for the Mutant Decimation was received by many as this.
- Author's Saving Throw: This story, for fans unhappy with what Bendis did to Scarlet Witch.
- Broken Base: Over the decision to 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 Author's Saving Throw, but others accuse it of being Armed with Canon.
- The Woobie: The Young Avengers, but Wiccan and Cassie especially.
