But the Marvel boneheaded ideas don't tend to have the universal ramifications that the DC ones do.
Crisis, Zero Hour, Identity Crisis, Final Crisis, the new 52 and so on... nothing Marvel has done has had that big an impact.
Spidey being unmarried? Only really affected the Spidey books. Jean Grey in a cocoon? Only really affected the X-Men books. No more mutants? Only really affected the X-Men books.
Crisis? Everything. Zero Hour? Everything. Identity Crisis? Everyone. Final Crisis? Everything. The new 52? Everyone AND everything.
