    When impossible retcon meets desperate headcanon, you get: Wanda's reality alterations during Disassembled-through-House-of-M altered their lineage along with all the other shifts and mutations.

    Messiah Complex. Completely inverting Bishop's backstory to shoe-horn him into the role of a Scary Black Man villain stereotype. Manages to be both a clumsy contradiction of continuity and horrifyingly offensive at the same time.

    Brian Braddock - Guardian of the Marvel Multiverse 2000 - 2005.

    Brian went from depowered Captain Britain to uniting the two sides of the Captain Britain Mythos, and effectively becoming the new Merlyn, back in 2000. Roma announced that, much like her father, she would be passing on and Brian was replacing her.

    He appeared as such in the pages of Avengers, a few years later. Transforming Kelsey Leigh into the new Captain Britain of Earth 616. Wth Meggan at his side, echoing his own origin story, but with him and Meggan now in the place of Merlyn and Roma.

    Roll on to 2005, and House of M, and it seemed that Chris Claremont never got the memo.

    Roma is back from the dead, Brian is Captain Britain again, Meggan gets trapped in-between dimensions and Brian cannot get back to Otherworld. We were told that some force (which was never explained) was stopping him, at the start of New Excalibur. But by the time we had the crossover story with eXiles at the end of that run, this has been completely forgotten.

    The entirity of this change, and how Brian was suddenly no longer the Guardian, was pretty brutally retoconned by a wruter simply pretending it never happened. No explanation, let's just move on.

    Terrible storytelling.

    Does Remender's revision of Brian count as a retcon? You know, the stodgy, elitist who doesn't respect veterans and has no leadership experience?

    Or the weird never before established knowledge the whole Braddock Family has of a huge and extensive history of their father's life in Otherworld?

    Plausibly.

    I just try to blank Remenders run with the character out of my memory. Entirely.

    Everything to do with Nick Fury from Battle Scars onwards. Shameless attempt to replace him in what may be the most insulting thing Marvel's ever done to readers' intelligence. And to top it off, we get Original Sin as another F U, making the original Fury unlikable, old and essentially removed from the board for the foreseeable future to make way for their shoehorned MCU-inspired Fury.

    Utter piss. Nothing else even comes close.

    Actually, I'm inclined to agree.

    Gotta agree with the Nick Fury thing. I like Sam Jackson but, come on, Marvel.

    Ick, ick, ick.
    Same here. It was terribly disrespectful to Storm.

    I have to go with avenger disassembled, one of the worst character action ham fisted stories ever to just get the avengers the writer wanted.

    OMD was bad as well,, spidey deal with a demon. Never read another Spider-Man book.

    Oh, so many, it's hard to narrow it down to just one. In recent years, Nu Marvel has really gone out of it's way to unecessarily retcon things (an arguement can be made as to whether retons are ever necessary). I'm surprised no one has yet mentioned (if they did, I'm sorry, must have skipped it) the most recent of young Ice-Man being gay because a telepath told him he is. (Adult Ice-Man isn't though. I guess no telepath ever had the heart to tell him so. Thus, he is still straight.)

    Peace
