I'm glad we're finally getting rid of the SJW-bait characters.

Spidey is still gonna be f*cked. Slott's not going anywhere. Bendis is thankfully off GOTG tho.

That's not happening nor should it.

The "SJW" characters are among Marvel's best sellers right now. It always strikes me as completely ridiculous that people who see a problem with how Marvel is doing commercially think the way to fix this is to cancel books that are selling.

I don't know how many times I've seen people who are angry that Fantastic Four (a book which hadn't sold well in decades) doesn't have a book but Moon Girl (which sells well in trade) is on the shelves. Hey I'd love the FF to return and haven't even tried Moon Girl myself but it's such a stupid argument.

Amazing Spider-Man sells. Until that changes Marvel is going to want him to stick around regardless of the crazy free mason attitude fans have about the guy.

Also, you might want to read this

Do yourself a favor and read the web essay "Shut The F*ck Up Marvel" also

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1362725

The description from the website:

Quote:
"Shut The **** Up, Marvel" is a nearly 30k long essay, a spiritual sequel to The Problems With Comics, a deep dive into the true issues with Marvel's economics and business - and how an obsession with short term profit, the constant renumbering and relaunches and events, all compounded by a complete inability to understand basic marketing techniques or outside audiences, has absolutely destroyed the sales stability of many of their former best selling books, all as they condescend to those who criticize them on their stories, or on how they try to sell comics

Apparently most of the established writers are staying on their respective books during Legacy, so this isn't going to be that big a shake-up
