    No wait! They all are on Avengers teams! Oh well! Guess nothing happens to the extended times they're stuck out there.
    That's what I call lazy editing.

    My personal philosophy is that unless the extra title is a team up book (in the vein of such classics as Marvel-Team-Up, Two-In-One or DC's Brave and the Bold) that an additional title is almost always overkill. The reason I loved those titles is that it used popular characters that most fans liked (Spider-Man, Batman) and gave some face time for quality lesser known characters and concepts that usually wouldn't have been used in the character respective main titles.

    Well that kills the tension out of that scenario.
    There really wasn't supposed to be any tension in that scenario. Seriously. It's about the adventure, that's it.

    Nah. Even if Captain America wasn't there, you still wouldn't be getting Patriot or Diamondback.

    Unless it's Avengers Arena. Then maybe you will. :)

    If you're thinking like this, you may as well drop comics because characters will never be restricted to one situation outside of death

    Which is exactly what bugs me. Saying "Oh no! They are stuck here!" when they get to wander around elsewhere is just annoying. I mean, Future Human Torch says the FF is dead, but Reed is on New Avengers anyways.

    It's actually never, ever occurred to me to wonder when and how super heroes take time out to use the toilet. Until this moment.

    Thank you for that. :/

    However, if a writer DID show these characters doing just that- like Bendis did with the Avengers eating- you'd get people complaining that's ALL he ever did.....

    I remember Marvel in the late sixties and seventies. Each character had one book. It was easy to follow their adventures, and when there was a cross-over with another title, it meant something (sort of like Daredevil is now). I like Wolverine, Hulk and many others, but trying to follow these characters through mega events, cross-overs and multiple titles has become a headache and just isn't as enjoyable as it should be.

    THat, IMHO, is a BIG problem.

    If you're building teams, yeah, they are taking up spots.

    I don't know. You just have to enjoy each story on it's own merits. Arrange it into some sort of continuity if you must, but don't let Cap's appearance in Uncanny Avengers or Avengers (or, or, or...) impede your enjoyment of the flow of the story in his own book.

    No. It would not. Characters that don't move books aren't going to start populating books because of a moratorium on A-listers. You'd just have less books every month.

    Does Wolverine on 6 books really sell them?
