    His street-level work was good (Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Miles Morales) but as soon as they gave him the keys to the 616 Universe, things went bad. And the list of characters he burned to the ground or completely sold out and the continuity he completely dumped on or just flat out ignored is unforgivable. His good work pales in comparison to the damage he has done.

    Here are just a few of the character he "jobbed", never liked, never understood or flat out destroyed: (this is just a few, feel free to add more)

    Nova (Richard Rider)
    Scarlet Witch
    Captain America
    Iron Man
    War Machine
    Beast (as an Avenger & Xmen)
    Wolverine (as an Avenger)
    Hank Pym
    Scott Lang
    Ms./Capt. Marvel
    Spiderman 616
    Dr. Strange
    The Fantastic Four
    The whole of the X-Men Universe
    The whole of the Guardians of the Galaxy
    The concept of the Thunderbolts

I always felt DnA banished Nova to the cancerverse on purpose. I figured they did that out of fear the eye of Sauron Bendis was looking in Rich's direction and they wanted to preserve Rich.

Add Nick Fury to that list.

Secret War was the beginning of the end for Fury, as it turned him into the kind of murky ends-justify-the-mean, pseudo war criminal that some people like to think our real world security services are occupied by. After that SHIELD just became a bunch of people who seemed to spend all their time infringing civil rights.

He also then had a hand in Secret Warriors, which was essentially a charge of the light brigade for pretty much all of the orginal agents.
