Frankly, I think DC is better off overall with a reboot.

But Marvel continuity was never a mess to begin with. They've been pretty damn consistent overall.

The best thing about Marvel NOW! is that their major titles (Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man) feel fresh and exciting now as opposed to before Marvel now where everything was feeling incredibly stale.
If you're a proper writer, it doesn't matter how ****ed continuity is, you can make a fresh and invigorating story that's still accessible to new readers.

It's like a non-consecutive 24-hour dance party.
