Were many people actually saying the F4 and X-Men would be wiped from existence? I was just saying, and still am, that they are being pushed to the background in favor of spotlighting other properties that Disney/Marvel owns the film rights to. I don't think they are doing that in order to sabotage the movies because it's pretty obvious the comics don't impact the movies and more or less vice versa. I don't think you can logically deny that this is happening though. Look at that big Marvel characters poster. No X-Men or Fantastic Four to be seen. Some of the characters are obviously still present (The Thing and Wolverine being on that new promo for All New, All Different for instance) but those two properties look to be taking a back seat in some ways. I'm not throwing a big fit about this but I am a bit disappointed because I prefer the X-Men to the properties they are focusing on now.
No one I know is saying that except for @g_man who says it sarcastically every week like it's some crackpot theory or vicious bleeding cool rumor. There is an avalanche of proof to support that these properties are being pushed to the background and The Thing in Guardians and Johnny in Inhumans does not refute it. If anything, their keeping the license for these character by having them appear in a comic based on a blockbuster movie and an upcoming movie (not to mention the Inhuman's presence in Agents of Shield). To refute it at this point is naive.
And I'll bring it up this week because you all bring it up every week: You three complaining about complaints only spreads negativity. If you can't take it, disable comments on the site. Most people don't read the comments and are unaware of of the disagreements. So by you all airing them out in a podcast only spreads them further.
