More and more people seems to act like if the Marvel Cinematic Universe should replace Earth-616 as the Mainstream Timeline reality of the Marvelverse.
Simply because of the movie The Avengers.
Its popularity has become so overrated, that I pretty much lost all interest in, and hope of, wanting to watch it myself.
Also, I find it purely annoying that people uses the popularity of the movie as an excuse to retcon The Wasp/Janet van Dyne and Ant-Man/Doctor Henry Pym as members of The Avengers' Original Founding Roster in favor for Hawkeye/Clinton Barton and Black Widow/Natasha Romanov.
It makes me wish that they should have postponed the production of The Avengers in favor for Ant-Man; although, it seems that The Wasp's, and maybe even Giant-Man's, inclusion into the MCU timeline might be voided, considering that there has yet been any reference to the inclusion of Janet in the coming soon movie, and, based on Wikipedia, it seems like Henry Pym will never join The Avengers as Ant-Man since it seems that by the end of the movie, he will have passed on the torch to Scott Lang, the second Ant-Man from the comics.
Anyway, to someone like me, the members of the (one true) founding roster of The Avengers will always consist of The Invincible Iron Man/Tony Stark, The Incredible Hulk/Dr Robert Bruce Banner, The Mighty Thor/Dr Donald Blake, The Wasp/Janet van Dyne, and Ant-Man/Dr Henry Pym.
