I'm not sure what you are referring to as 'short on action' for Young Avengers. There was dancing, Skrull invasion, Spider-Man robbery, magick casting, the Loki / MAC fight, and Teddy's mom.

It's really a matter of taste. For me Hickman's Avengers and New Avengers are great and the sort of comic I enjoy to read. But it's not for everyone. The same can be said for any comic or writer.
b) Noh-var is a difficult one to write, because Bendis and Morrison are so juxtaposition; which interpretation do you go with? I think Gillen was BANG on the money, going for middle ground, and trying to explain the bizarre differences between the two versions.
No-one is getting a pass. Fans are genuinely loving the comics.
"I don't know how to please you Lord, but I think the fact I try to please you, pleases you."
There are a lot of subjective elements in play here which makes it impossible to directly compare how people would react.
I do think if it was the EXACT same book, with Bendis name on it instead of Gillens there would be more complaints though. But that just kind of comes with the territory of being a Bendis.
Gillen is an up and coming guy. Give him a few years on some high profile books, and the internet will probably start hating on him too. That's just how it works.
Busy having an agenda for daring to disagree with a chip on his shoulder bigot.
