I don't agree with number 2 though. No one has been replaced we just have multiple versions of people using the same name. We got 2 Thors, 2 Spider-men, 2 Captain Americas. The only two characters I can think of that have been replaced are Hulk and Wolverine and they will be back soon.

Yeah I should have specified, I was including multiples versions along with replacements. Though it should be noted, Wolverine has been replaced, She-Thor is going by Thir and has replaced Thor on the Avengers, Steve Rogers is a Nazi while Falcon is acting as the heroic Cap, Wasp has been replaced, Iron Man has been replaced...

Well, Logan hasn't really been replaced when you factor in old man Logan.  Which you would think indicates the old man comes out of Adamantium at some point.  But, then it's just possible his reality/timeline was also wiped out during the big event.

It's not necessarily a literal replacement. Thor has been reduced to an unworthy pale shadow of his old self, completely disgraced while She-Thor has his name, is occupying his essential title and power tier, takes his spot in teams etc. It's a type of replacement

Sure, but they're still gone for (in Thor's case) 3 years.  I can see a fan being annoyed by that regardless of politics or things of that nature.  From Knightfall to Knightsend, the entire thing took a year with Bruce still having a large presence in the story as protagonist.

If Games Workshop decided to replace an entire Space Marine legion with females there would be actual physical rioting.

It's dumb. Women doing man shit is stupid and nothing will ever change that fact.

Therock is a faggot.

Women will never equal men when it comes to combat and fiction should keep that in mind when creating stories and settings.

I would agree with you if there wasn't a comic with Thor in it. But there is so he's not really gone.

Then you should agree with me because it was a 5 issue mini-series that came 2 and a half years into it.  Thanks for your support.

Wasn't he showing up something else before Unworthy Thor? I know he's gonna be in a new comic starting soon.

Also its been three years since Secret Wars? Jesus.

Thor's been gone from his title since 2014, and gone completely since March 2015 beyond a panel in 2016 teasing the Unworthy Thor mini.  The mini didn't come out for another 6 months after that.

Yeah, Thor's essentially been replaced. When She-Thor just slid into his place on the Avengers and the rest of them started referring to her as Thor without missing a beat, or even bothering to look for their friend to help him, that's replacement in my eyes.
