X men and Batman killed comic book collecting for me. So many titles so much crossover and push for you to buy them all. They may not be the two that started it. But they seem to have the most crossover arcs.

Would it be so hard for them to publish one Xmen book weekly and have most of the mutants in one comic only. Soap operas have been doing it succefully (before facebook) for decades.

I feel old here but I remember back when I started in collecting, there were 3 X-titles. Uncanny. Then X-Factor came out to bring back the original team (It was like the classic Coke of X-men) and the up and comers New Mutants. It was easy to follow and once they had mutant crossovers or references, it wasn't all bad.

Same went with Avengers. Two titles. Avengers and West Coast plus the solo books of the main characters. Cap, Iron Man, Thor, etc...

Now there are way too many Avengers teams. And these lead characters have more than one book each as well like Cap and Bucky, Invincible Iron Man, Hulk, Incredible Hulks, etc... What blows my mind is when you get into a big event series. My last one was Fear Itself, it's crossover overload.

I will stick with following the Marvel heroes via cartoons and movies from now on.

I hear ya, ElBaz13.  I remember when they "rebooted" X-Men the first time and started collecting them.  It went downhill from there.

ElBaz, you think you feel old?  I started collecting with X-Men #126.  1978.  Only one X-Men book and Wolverine was still years away from getting his first solo mini-series.  One Avengers, no West Coast.  The only one who had multiple titles in Marvel was Spiderman.  Except for the occasional issue here and there I stopped collecting years ago, 40 - 50 books a month at about $3 per book was getting to be too expensive, but even if I could still afford them the Grand Epics they've been flooding us with would turn me off.

I just yesterday trimmed my pull list from 12 titles to just one plus the trades for Walking Dead.  They just rebooted everything at Marvel, and I used it to bow out.  I have been buying (I don't call it collecting anymore, as I read it, bag it, and put it away.  It doesn't feel like collecting anyway....but that's a different rant.) since the mid 70's, and it is just too much.  Too much team expansion titles, characters that are separate from teams joining new teams, confusing cross-overs, event tie ins, variations of an original character.  It is all too watered down as far as new ideas and original storytelling.
