* 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.]]
* DevelopmentHell: The first volume of ''Young Avengers'' ended in 2006 with the team planning to search for the Scarlet Witch. This story was supposed to be done in a second volume of ''Young Avengers'', but because of [[ScheduleSlip Allan Heinberg's busy TV writing schedule]] and changes in the Marvel Universe status quo, the story never actually got done until 2010.
* TheWoobie: The Young Avengers, but Wiccan and Cassie especially.
