like i said, the man is a revolutionary for how he's managed to stay consistent and fresh for almost a decade on the avengers by constantly trying something new and exploring storytelling from so many different sides.
when people listen to criticism like yours about respecting continuity and things like that it ends up with something like DC pre DCnU.....and now as we can see they're basically reliving the 90's after they tried oh so hard to break the 70's/80's-cross-dark-and-edgy tribute phase that geoff johns and didio put them through during the 2000's.
therefore bendis is saving us from those sort of stories aka the stories your kind of fan wants because the alternative is enough to kill the book side of the industry.
I like a lot of Bendis's work, but, I still know enough to recognize crap when I see it.
And mould is what grows in your shower.
