I don't REMEMBER all the good guys turning bad in the Silver Age, and hero teams suddenly adding vicious murderers for Reasons, but maybe I'm wrong.So it's the Silver Age?
If so, then the real sin is apparently that The House of Ideas is - once more - just bland and unoriginal.
That Hawkeye run was both a fun book and exactly what I was talking about: Hawkeye went from being not only a competent superhero but the leader of the Thunderbolts (in an amazing arc), to a loser that basically nobody took seriously while we were shown in every issue that Kate Bishop (who I absolutely love) was Absolutely Better At Being Hawkeye And Being A Hero In Every Single Way.Eh, I think that Marvel has been up and down forever to be honest. Some of their stuff is pretty decent, some of it is bad, and a lot of it is destroyed by editorial meddling (event fatigue was definitely a thing during the 00s).
But you still get some really good stuff like Kieron Gillen's run on Journey into Mystery, or the Matt Fraction/David Aja Hawkeye run.
