Anything top these bull$&%^* retcons?
* Spiderman Mephisto Deal.
Sentry (his mere existence retconned the entire MU)
Spidey deal wasnt as bad as above but still bad..
Gwen's affair did piss me off to no end.
With DC it is even worse, i mean take a seat and hear a vet DCU reader tell you of every minor to universal retcon.
everything with the GL is horrible not just from Parallax thing, guardian Origin, Ring Mechanics etc etc...
@FadeToBlackBolt said:Again, it wasn't. Sentry was awesome before Bendis' decided to Bendis him.yes it was. but, i lump all of sentry's inconsistencies into one single entity called sentry
Sentry and Rogue wasn't that bad.
- Gwen and Osborn (THE WORST, even worse than OMD)
I've got to give it to One More Day. It was just so out of character, and against basic concepts of decency and maturity. Letting a loved one go is the hardest thing people have to do, but they have to do it. Cheating by making a deal with a malevolent being was just stupifyingly bad, and this doesn't even factor in the fact that it retconned the marriage. Even if the marriage was intact, it would still have been a horrible story... That is an insult that will be hard to top.
Azazel being Nightcrawler's father deserves a mention, I think.
Going back a while,
"The real origin of the Flash!" in Flash #167 (SA series) - told us that the lightning bolt which caused Barry Allen to be doused in chemicals was actually sent by some intergalactic dwarf called Mopee. Everyone hated it, but I think it remained in place at least until COIE or Zero Hour or one of them
@castleking: Nope John Byrne actually apologised for this later, they had to do that to cover up the error they made in order to bring back some type of explatation and even then it was all over the place and still not 100 percent sure if this right or not. Which makes it a pretty bad retcon
Yes. I freaking hated the Xorneto retcon.
Please keep Grant Morrison out of Marvel. If gonna your kill someone..then kill just him. Don't kill him and then say oh guess what this guy is someone else but there is also another guy just like him getting a cafe latte at StarBucks.
Oh yeah...Teenage iron man. Did you how hard it was to read the Onslaught saga with him in it?
Gwen cheating on Parker is much worse than the whole Mephisto crap IMO
i mean,at least One More Day is giving us good Spider-Man comics
Sentry f*cking Rogue for absolutely no reason
Xorn being Magneto...was that supposed to even make sense?
i dont read much DC,can someone explain the Paralax retcon to me if that`s not much trouble?

1. Gwen is a slut that had Osborn give it too her.
2. Sentry is this awesome guy, even though a 4 year old could say otherwise(Sentry's Funeral Eulogies)
3. My favorite in terms of sheer Creator Fanboyism:
"That's right kids, Big T's never really lost, it was just a clone. In fact every appearance he's had except those written by me were just duplicates, crappy ones too!"
Sins Past for me, I think it reads like bad fanfiction.
From what I can remember.
DC decided they needed a new, "90s" Green Lantern, so a story was thrown out where Hal Jordan, previously a pretty well adjusted hero, suddenly decided he was going to kill a whole bunch of his friends and attack the Lantern leaders for flimsy reasons.
He was essentially made into the bad guy and the new guy was now the hero.
The retcon, which happened much later involved an explanation that he had been possessed by a evil monster spirit thingy called Parallax at the time and wasn't actually responsible for any of his previous actions.
I haven't really got a problem with this retcon to be honest, the original story was a complete and utter mess to begin with, with Hal Jordan acting ludicrously out of character. If anything the retcon actually causes the original story to make more sense.
