"You really start to wonder, after a while, just why it is that some of you guys follow the books at all."

Continuing to chronicle the "Looking for any greater meaning or purpose in what you're reading every time out is a bit of a losing proposition" phase of Marvel.

I'm not necessarily endorsing the questioner's specific concern (although on initial consideration i get their point). I do agree with Brevoort about the hyperbole and anger he gets. The truth is Marvel is all but telling us that "continuity" (the way longtime Marvel geeks mean it) is dead. So it's really up to us to let it go and stop reading Marvel if that's all we're in it for. Brevoort's post here is an invitation for us to go away. So there's no need for fans to keep getting mad about it. At this point if you're reading Marvel books and getting angry about stuff like this, you need to move on to the next stage of acceptance.
