    Default Things that you don't want to see at marvel comics in 2021

    Characters sitting around eating. Find a more interesting way to do characterization/info dumps

    Plants!

    Heroes fighting heroes.

    Variant covers

    Everyone and their grandma picking up Thor's hammer.

    Bendis. I know he isn't there, but with the way things are going at DC I'm afraid he will eventually show up at Marvel again.

    Feel free to chime in with your own stuff.

    The bolded, particularly. The first because there's no coming back from humans and mutants waging all-out war on each other, no matter which side starts it, not if it means nonmutant superheroes siding against their erstwhile mutant allies in the name of protecting humanity and the X-Men at this point likely defending their eternally embattled fellow mutants from humanity and against their former comrades in the wider superhero community, which would doubtlessly be interpreted as unforgivable betrayal on both sides of the fence. I don't see how that chasm ever closes again, especially if or when innocents among humans and mutants alike end up as casualties. The second is simply because in this day and age, we really ought to be doing better.

    An event spin out of a title that would have been way better just being told in the pages of its own book.

    1. Sue Storm being treated the way she's currently being treated in the Fantastic Four book.
    2. The Phoenix Force choosing a cringe-inducing host like Wolverine.
    3. More spider-verse characters.

    Yeah, that's a good one there, though it seems Marvel is, for the most part, able to resist that impulse when it comes to Spider-Man stories.

    A repeat of April 2020. Seriously, have a backup plan ready in case Diamond has problems again. If other publications can continue through a lockdown, comics can.

    There was a back-up, just nobody was willing to do it because a bunch of retailers stamped their feet and screamed at the prospect of comics going digital-first for a few months.
