    More registration acts(Outlawed? C'mon man!)
    Every human hates mutants. Every human?
    Morally ambiguous heroes.
    $5.99, $6.99, $7.99, $8.99 or $9.99 comic books. Incoming and ASM #850. You have got to be kidding.
    I can definitely agree on comics being overstuffed and overpriced. However, I'll say on the subject of morally ambiguous heroes that while such characters have their place in the grand tapestry of the superhero genre, it definitely loses something when either (almost) every hero is at best morally ambiguous, at worst just barely any better than the villains they fight, or that's still the case, but nobody in-universe actually acknowledges or addresses that a lot of those "heroes" are barely removed from just being prosocial (as opposed to antisocial) villains. I also agree that having every individual human in the 'verse at best indifferent to mutants' suffering and at worst hating mutants to the point of being ok with, supporting, or actively partaking in genocide against them is a bit too much, as it makes Magneto's argument for subjugating and/or exterminating them all in his more explicitly villainous modes a lot harder to logically (and morally) refute. On the subject of Captain America's relationship with the country he represents and embodies, as he (usually) embodies the best of what that country can and should be, I think it shouldn't so much be the people that doubt him as the government that fears he cannot be controlled or manipulated into morally dubious actions in the name of "patriotism." The same with registration acts on the whole; that should primarily be the result of the government wanting to control superheroes (or superpowered people in general) and render them compliant with the more dubious actions or agendas of the state. The rest . . . I'll just generally say, let those characters be at their best.

    Another year of admitting that Blue Marvel isn't fit to carry Green Lantern John Stewart's jock.

    The same goes with Daredevil fighting sci-fi enemies.

    Don’t limit the characters when the world itself is unlimited.

    I agree with this, especially since by now pretty much everyone in the Marvel Universe has dealt with mystical forces.

    The really alarming part is that these uber-wealthy super geniuses run around all of the time without any magical defenses. Even a medieval cobbler has the common sense to invest in magical talismans and wards for protection. Someone like Tony Stark or Adam Brashear should have at least one anti-magic device in an adjacent vault to their technological doohickeys. But I guess Marvel wants us to continue to believe that they don't believe in magic as learned, well reasoned men of inquiry, despite their experiences. Right, yeah, not buying it.

    I generally don't like it when DD strays too far from crime/ninja-type stories. About as sci-fi as I like him to get is Stilt Man, TBH.
    His current approval rating is 34%, meaning 34% of Americans are still morons.

    -Event comics

    -Event comics every month with multiple happening at the same time.

    -Storylines in books being halted to tie-in to event comics.

    -Having to read event comics to understand what is happening in a non-event comic book I am reading.

    All of these are unlikely and are the reason I am no longer reading Marvel comics monthly.

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.
    Yep. Hopefully Hickman sees that this'd be the laziest, least interesting way to have mutants in conflict with humanity.

    It's actually quite fun to see the likes of Iron Man and Spider-Man (and even Daredevil, to a somewhat lesser extent) thrown out of their depth. Done well, it can show us readers and fans the real mettle of those heroes.

    Yeah, I'd agree with that.

    Heroes working with "villains": it's annoying when supposedly heroic people would turn to villains like Kingpin and Dr. Doom for help despite being far less trustworthy than even regular people.
