No question the amount of books Marvel comics puts out poses a tremendous task in trying to keep continuity, but that is why they have editors. This is why I place more of the blame on lazy editors than I do on a writers negligence. I truly don't have any issue with writers having creative freedom to envision a character, but it must remain true to previous history and we should be able to see the growth in the new direction. One of the most ridiculous nonsensical completely out of character moments was when Scott Summers all of a sudden took on Magneto's philosophy. Purley a bad editing move done for shock value. I'm not saying it's not possible for any character to change views, but nothing lead to that change. Bad editing and bad writing.
You bring up another good point as to the problem with the Marvel "Universe" i.e., Marvel allows certain "super star" writers too much freedom. Whatever they want to write goes unchecked even when it goes against proper characterization. It's really sickening. Some may not think it's a big deal, but it ruins the illusion of a universe. It's really only random stories and in truth that made it easier for me to scale back my spending on comics and eventually stop buying altogether.
