Re: Marvels biggest slap in the face!!!
What 'ruined' comic book movies for me was when Wolverine became the center and virtual leader of the X-Men at the expense of the other X-Men, especially my fave Cyclops. That, more than anything, was in those early days and as the franchise continued to marginalize the non-Wolverine X-Men, and how easily justified removing the team/diversity/unity/non-wolverine aspect was... I realized that comic book movies were never going to be what I was looking for, not really. That, at any moment, they could simply refuse to give me the things I loved about the comics, even if those things were central to the entire franchise, they could just say 'hawt Wolverine sells better.' And that would be it, forever.
I haven't been slapped in the face since. Disappointed, embarassed, sometimes sorely so, but never did it sting like that again.
