I was always behind the idea of Sam taking over as Cap for a whileif there had to be a replacement. He was the best candidate in 1986 when they gave Walker the job (although that story required a person ideologically opposed to Rogers), and he was still the best candidate twenty years later when they gave it to Bucky.

Likewise I consider Jane Foster getting a run as Thor as being entirely organis and making sense.

The likes of Riri Williams and Amadeus Cho though - no.

I could probably get behind all of these changes though if it wasnt for the fact that Marvel have made it quite clear that the lime light will have to be shared by three Caps, six Wolverines, and god knows how many Hulks (theyve just announced an ongoing for Weapon H).

I agree about Sam being the best candidate. I remember saying he made more sense When Bucky took over.

Now, I liked that run, and I think they found a way to make it work. Sam saying he had to stay Falcon to act as protector of Harlem, and be a symbol their worked fine.

I do think there should have been some story were Bucky says Sam should have it because he has been a hero longer... but over all it worked with Sam as his guide in the world of superhero-ing.

My first problem was that Cap had barely been back four years when he was replaced. But, that was easy enough to shake off.

I even think Sam should be a more socially active cap... to a point. It is who he is. I think there could have been some really interesting ideas with him trying to separate Cap and Sam, maybe building a type of secret identity who is more socially active, compared to the in the system Captain America.

I just think he was handled terribly, turning him into a guy who lectured people and had a lot kind of boring stories.

So in essence, that is where my view of ruining (albeit temporarily... hopefully) comes from. Not replacement, but rather just bad writing.

And even if they bring back every major character, that problem seems to be sticking around.
