I'm hard pressed to think of a character that hasn't suffered poor treatment in this century.

Somewhere along the line, they've lost the 'Marvel Method' of writing characters.

Stan and co. GAVE their characters problems.

The last few regimes at Marvel seem to see the characters AS the problem.

Yup. When you look at (arguably) the core characters, they have all been tainted and damaged: Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Wasp, Hank Pym, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Carol, Wonder Man, Hawkeye. Some of these great characters are nearly unreadable for me now - like watching a Mel Gibson movie. Their ruin shines through in every scene I see them in.

Then the second-tier Avengers haven't fared any better. Hercules, Spider-man, Monica, She-Hulk, Wolverine, Beast, Hulk, Quicksilver, Rogue.

Then the third-tier characters: Black Knight, Moondragon, Mantis, Tigra, Jocasta, Mockingbird, War Machine, Scott Lang, Jessica Drew.

Looking at each of the above names, I can think or at least one (and in most cases, multiple) tragedies that stained the characters in some way - and that's without even researching them.

The only important Avengers that haven't fared too badly, in my opinion, are Black Panther, Falcon, Black Widow and Luke Cage.
