* WTHCostumingDepartment: Most of the new costume designs have been pretty well received, but Red Wolf's has gotten flack. [[http://www.writeups.org/img/fiche/1978.jpg His old design]] was already rather cliché, but [[http://wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net/80450F/comicsalliance.com/files/2015/06/doc-shaner-red-wolf.jpg the new one]] makes him look like a complete stereotype. Thankfully later promos and the comic itself made clear that this is ''not'' his main costume, which is instead [[http://x.annihil.us/u/prod/marvel/i/mg/6/f0/55f07ef3d9642.jpg a more cowboy-esque design]].

Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedCharacter:
** Both Citizen V and Red Wolf are certainly characters you wouldn't expect to actively see, especially Red Wolf. As Citizen V failed to show up in the actual comics he also became a rare gender flipped version of LadyNotAppearingInThisGame.
** More than a few people were shocked at ''Squadron Supreme's'' addition of Blur, a member of ''ComicBook/DP7''.
** Deadpool as an Avenger? (Granted he was technically added to the team during Axis)
** White Fox in ''Contest of Champions''. Editorial said she'd be showing up in a Marvel book eventually, but few suspected it'd be this one.
** Ditto for Outlaw, a British vigilante who hasn't been seen in years.
** While Karnak is a reasonably high profile member of the Inhumans, he's not one anyone ever expected to rate his own solo series.
** Devil Dinosaur getting a new ongoing surprised quite a few people, though in hindsight it makes a bit more sense considering he had a main role in ''Secret Wars''' adaptation of ''Planet Hulk''.
** The news that the members of AlphaFlight would be part of Captain Marvel's supporting cast.
** Not only are we getting a continuation of ''X-Men '92'', but they're giving Jubilee some well-deserved company in the form of '''''ComicBook/GenerationX'''''.
** Weisman wanting to write a series about Starbrand and Nightmask has surprised more than a few people, though it does make sense considering Weisman's love of teenage heroes, big cosmic plots, and continuity nods.

Added DiffLines:

* FandomRivalry: With the ComicBook/DCRebirth line, which similarly began after a quasi-reboot. The rivalry is particularly heated due to a resurgence in DC sales. This is owed to the perception that the writers involved with DC have managed to (mostly) WinBackTheCrowd, while Marvel's numbers have steadily dropped since the relaunch for a variety of reasons.

* BrokenBase: Basically every single thing announced about ANADM has gotten the fans at each others' throats:
** Some are optimistic about it, noting that what little has been revealed at least shows that they're planning things better than DC did with its reboot. Others are promising to drop the company completely if they go through with it. Some think the former group are being unreasonably defensive and idealistic, others think the latter group are being unreasonably quick to assume the worst and incredibly pessimistic. That's the basic summary of any message board talking about the change.
** The vagueness of the promos for it. Some find it an interesting way to hype things up and avoids spoiling changes we won't see for another few months, while others feel it's boring, lazy, disrespectful towards retailers (who have no information about what to order), and is only encouraging the speculation from the groups liable to complain.
** Are Marvel just copying DC? (Some readers even call the event "The New 616") Are they shoving the X-Men to the side? Are they making it too close to the MCU? Everyone seems split into either 'yes' or 'no' for each of these.
** With the promos revealed, there are some who are quite interested in the new status quos and there are some who have declared them dead. This goes double for those who are still on titles that many prefer they leave, such as Dan Slott on ''Amazing Spider-Man'' and Creator/BrianMichaelBendis on ''Guardians of the Galaxy''.
** The X-books. Oh Dear Lord, the X-books. The creative decisions have all divided the fanbase:
*** Keeping the O5 X-Men around? Either an exciting development now that they aren't the main X-book and can do their own thing, or a pointless series that is keeping {{Flat Character}}s around.
*** Dennis Hopeless writing the book. Basically, long-story-short, Hopeless is a HUGE BaseBreaker because he wrote [[ComicBook/AvengersArena two very]] [[ComicBook/AvengersUndercover controversial works]], but also wrote more positive works (including works involving the O5 X-Men); people are now split between thinking he's OK and don't hold ''Arena'' and ''Undercover'' against him (after all, everyone has bad works and an OldShame or two), or think he's terrible with a few good works (which many feel aren't ''that'' good anyway).
*** ''Extraordinary X-Men''. Everything from the premise of the Terrigen Mists making mutants a dying species once again to the line-up. The idea of mutants as a dying race was already Anviliciously used in the mid-2000s to the early '10s, and many have had enough of it, and hoped the StatusQuo post-[[ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen AvX]] would remain. Others support it since at the very least the X-books will have a ''direction'', which many felt Bendis' run did not. The cast is either a return to the golden age of the X-Men (Storm, Colossus and Nightcrawler) with popular and interesting additions thrown into the mix (Old Man Logan, Magik, O5 Jean), or a boring cast that is milking nostalgia.
*** As an extension of that, Jeff Lemire being the main X-writer. While few will doubt that he is a good writer, detractors have issue with him on a ''team'' book, since much of his better-received works are solo series, and he himself has admitted to not doing good on team books in the past. Supporters claim that he is still a good writer, and his enthusiasm for the X-Men will push him to write them better, especially since he gets to pick his own cast, as opposed to his ''Justice League United'' run where he wasn't allowed to use any A-listers.
*** ''Uncanny X-Men'' which seems entirely based on whether or not one likes Cullen Bunn and/or his ''Magneto'' run. The fanbase is pretty unified in their hate for Greg Land being on art, however.
*** The idea of X-23 being the new Wolverine. Some think it's a natural evolution of the character. Others think it's the exact opposite. Some think it's just another attempt by Marvel to be diverse. Some think the role would be better suited to Sabretooth or Daken. And some just wanted Logan back.
*** ''Old Man Logan'' has the least of this, since he is an EnsembleDarkHorse, and the creative team is known to work well together (previously having done an acclaimed ''ComicBook/GreenArrow'' run), and Sorrentino having proved himself capable of doing ''Old Man Logan'' stuff, so at the very least it will ''look'' amazing. However, many were hopeful that the classic, original Wolverine would ''actually return'', since that was the assumption by most when he died in the first place. Others welcome Old Man Logan's more streamlined character, and his weakened healing ability, particularly as mainstream Logan had became very divisive in recent years after [[TookALevelInJerkass Taking A Level In Jerkass]] and becoming a huge hypocrite.
*** ''X-Men'92'' due to Chris Sims' involvement, given his past as an internet bully/troll. While reformed, it is [[NeverLiveItDown still brought up constantly]].
** The departure of a lot of familiar writers from the Marvel Universe (Kelly Sue [=DeConnick=], Jonathan Hickman, Rick Remender to name a few) also has a lot of people concerned. Some are fine with it, stating that it gives Marvel the opportunity to hire fresh blood and the creators a chance to work on their own projects. Most people, however, point out that these names were some of the biggest draws of many comics and point out that rather than adding new writers, [[http://ca.ign.com/articles/2015/07/24/between-the-panels-the-marvel-comics-relaunch-already-has-a-big-problem?%20hub%20page&utm_content=2 they're just giving the writers they already have more titles to work on]].
** The sheer ''amount'' of AffirmativeActionLegacy going on. Is it nice to see more women and minority heroes and a chance for new stories or is it a pathetic and pandering attempt to make Marvel look progressive by screwing over beloved heroes? The fact that the classic versions of these heroes are largely still around in some way but in a different role negates this for some, but others claim they should make due on their own merits rather than cashing in on other heroes'.
** In addition, the constant jabs at people complaining about said AffirmativeActionLegacy. Even some supporters of the changes think it's a little much and often distracts from the story just to tick off people who aren't worth it.
** On a similar note, the number of [[CanonImmigrant Canon Immigrants]] and Alternates present. Good idea that will give awesome stories and character interactions or a horrible idea that's just pointlessly complicating things?
** The fact that a lot of well-liked characters don't seem to be returning isn't sitting well with their fans. Loki and Cyclops are commonly cited examples, though Marvel have confirmed Loki will be around, and Cyclops' lack of presence is going to be a plot point.
** Loki's changed appearance in Thor's book is divisive too as the character just got a ''[[TheNthDoctor regeneration]]'' before the event, and people fear (or in the case of the traditionalist minority: hope) this could be a sign of radical changes in character (again). And [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking there is also]] the PermaStubble[[note]]This is truly [[SeriousBusiness unprecedented]]! Not even the homeless Loki from ''Thors'' had a beard before[[/note]]. Some point out though that this is ''Loki'' we talk about, who didn't have a consistent look for most of Marvel comics' history. Some just don't like the stubble because they feel it's drawn poorly, looking more like pubes glued to Loki's face.
** Gerardo Sandoval on New Avengers. The initial image revealed caused quite a bit of ire for some, due to how Liefeldian it looked, particularly Songbird's impossibly thin stomach and Wiccan's ridiculously large muscles and hair. On the other hand, some enjoyed his take on the characters, and even a few of the aforementioned detractors felt that the art in the issues proper flowed better than the first issue's cover appeared to.
** The idea of loner characters getting young sidekicks, like Daredevil[[note]]In his case, either you feel it sullies the point or allows Daredevil to be expounded beyond it[[/note]].
** ''Contest of Champions'' has this on a minor level - there is a group of people who are worried it's going to be another pointless butchering of CListFodder like ''Avengers Arena'', while others have a lot of faith in Al Ewing to deliver a much better story. It also seems that Ewing is aware of this, seeing how in his first interview about the book he talked at length about the mechanics preventing other superheroes from finding out what is going on with their comrades (one of the major complaints about ''Arena'' was how poorly it handled that question). And with bringing Ares, a [[EnsembleDarkhorse fan-favorite]] character, back to life in the second issue (in contrast to ''Arena'', which alienated many readers by killing another fan-favorite character, Mettle, in the first issue).
** Nick Spencer on ''Captain America'' from the very beginning, to the point that even ''he'' has said that he knew this'd be the reaction. Detractors see him as an odd choice, as he's more known for humour than anything else, particularly since his most well-received work in recent years is his ''SuperiorFoesOfSpiderMan'' run. Supporters say he ''can'' do serious stories, and excels at writing grounded, personable heroes, so he's a good fit for Sam Wilson.
*** There were serious concerns with the idea of Steve Rogers being Grumpy Ol' Cap, like he was during "Time Runs Out", where the only thing that was missing was Steve Rogers [[Creator/ClintEastwood yelling at an empty chair]]. Basically, people were afraid of Steve getting his reputation tarnished in order to see Sam Wilson in a more favorable light. It's now clear that those concerns are less warranted now, particularly after Issue 2.
** The even bigger ''Inhuman'' push. Fans of Charles Soule's revamp love it, since he will be writing both of the ongoings and the Inhumans will be having more of a presence in the Marvel Universe, while ''Warren Ellis'' will be writing Karnak. Detractors, especially X-Men fans, see it as another attempt to make the Inhumans 'happen', which already kind of failed the first time, since ''Inhuman'' was not a particularly good seller. The use of Inhumans in team books is seen as an attempt to try and force non-Inhuman readers to read them.
** Red Wolf, or rather Nathan Edmondson writing it, due to some rumors regarding harassment; it should be noted that these rumors are unsubstantiated at this point, but that hasn't stopped some people in the comics media from arguing that he should be taken off of the book.
** The revelation that Mary Jane Watson will be bouncing from being a Spider-Man supporting character to the latest redhead in Tony Stark's life. Some see it as an improvement, due to the fact that the character had been crapped on in Spidey's title since ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan''. Others see it as Marvel trying to shill movie-based characters like Tony by tossing people like MJ over to those titles.
** The lack of a ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers'' book, with Wiccan and Hulkling joining the'' New Avengers'', Ms. America joining the ''Ultimates'', and Kate continuing her role in ''Hawkeye''. The fact that these four are still around in arguably more "high-tier" (i.e., Avengers/Ultimates) roles, being the most popular of the cast, is well received, but many fans of the title are upset the full team aren't around in anything and the fact the team itself is being ignored. Rumors of Marvel developing a ''Young Avengers'' Netflix series have prompted some to theorize they're putting the title off until that happens, but as this is just a rumor, many don't feel this justifies the length of time since the last Young Avengers book, given the team has constantly been present since its inception in large part to avoid fading into obscurity.
*** A similar schism is occurring in the ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' fandom, due to its team leader Nico becoming a junior member of ''ComicBook/AForce'', while the rest of her teammates have yet to be mentioned as appearing anywhere at all.
** Spider-Woman getting pregnant - some people like it and think that's an interesting development, but others say that pregnancy is one of the most cliched plots for female characters and it's a move made by a writer infamous for [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity selling books by riding on controversial premises alone]] or that the idea of Jessica fighting crime while in advanced pregnancy makes her look like she is actively trying to kill that baby.
** All-New Hawkeye is also causing some division. People that liked Ramon Perez' watercolored flashbacks of the previous run are surprised at how bad the flashfoward parts of the new story look. Others don't like Lemire's new direction with the series, with just about everyone in the book telling Clint how much he sucks (and by extension, the comic book telling us he sucks), and Kate Bishop coming across as a CreatorsPet due to all the CharacterShilling we get in her favor. Of course, her fans from ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers'' are delighted with this direction and want Clint gone from his own book.
** There has been debate over Ta-Nehisi Coates being hired to write ''ComicBook/BlackPanther''. Some feel he's a great choice, given his status as both [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ta-Nehisi_Coates#Bibliography a celebrated writer]] and a [[http://www.vulture.com/2015/04/ta-nehisi-coates-superhero-comics.html# bona-fide Marvel fan]]. However his complete lack of experience in writing comics led to others feeling he was just hired to either make Marvel look progressive or stick a black writer to a black character.
** [[spoiler:Regent's]] return in Miles' back-up story in ''Amazing Spider-Man'' #1. Some are tired of Slott's original characters showing up and others are curious as to what they can do with him.
** Peter Parker's new status quo. To many people, this is pretty much the end result of his hard work and, save for ''finally'' getting back with Mary Jane, this should be where Peter should stay. Other people think that Peter as the "poor man's Tony Stark" is not the right fit and find this move to be pointlessly taking him away from his working class hero background. There's also the fact that it follows the ''incredibly well received'' "Renew Your Vows" story, but rather than following ''that'' idea of Peter as a happily married father, they've taken it into the exact opposite way.
** [[spoiler:Namor's death in ''Squadron Supreme''. It's either another pointless death in a series of pointless deaths throughout comic history or a chance to explore the loss of one of the first Marvel creations in a similar vein like the Human Torch's death. For others, it's also LaserGuidedKarma for Namor's antics since ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'', but it leaves his grudge with Black Panther unresolved.]]
** ''Civil War II'' has divided the fandom - you have plenty of people declaring that the House of Ideas has run out of ideas, some who are curious but wearily optimistic and some who are going "At least Mark Millar and JMS aren't writing this."
** The announcement of an All New Wasp; it's either trying too hard to follow with the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse and wish Marvel would just use Janet instead or have hope that it completely subverts people's expectations.
** Cyclops being PutOnTheBus and his RonTheDeathEater treatment being continued not only in the X-Men titles, but the new Inhuman books as well.

** Getting past the BrokenBase over her taking up the cowl in the first place, most fans agree that the classic blue-and-gold Wolverine costume just doesn't suit X-23, and would prefer that she go back to either her X-Force uniform, or the black-and-gray version of the Wolverine suit from the same series. The main target is the cowl itself, with the way it only covers the front of her scalp leaving the rest of her hair uncovered looking particularly awkward, and that Laura would look better with the X-Force-style DominoMask.
