3) Amazing Spider-Man #700:
Spider-Man created a stir with this particular storyline, even ending with writer Dan Slott receiving death threats from angry fans. In Amazing Spider-Man #700, Spider-Man has switched bodies with the villain Doctor Octopus. The villain forged a plan for the switch after he discovers he is dying.

4) Civil War:
In 2006, Marvel released the popular crossover event, “Civil War.” The series was a game changer which impacted the very structure of Marvel comics for future crossover events. The controversy was not with fans but with the story which dealt with the Superhuman Registration Act. The story arc saw Iron-Man being a pro- believer while Captain America opposed it. The death of Captain America in the series also resulted in news coverage all around the world.
5) Ms.Marvel #1:
In November 2013, Marvel announced the launch of a brand new Ms.Marvel comic book series with a new character. The new Ms.Marvel , Kamala Khan, a child of Pakistani immigrants living in Jersey City. This new addition did not go over very well with a small portion of the general public who were more racist than others with their hateful commentary. Ms. Marvel writer G.Wilson said,” “There’s been some hate from people who don’t read comics, which I ignore because, in terms of this medium, they are illiterate. There’s this sense that [Muslims] shouldn’t even be there because it’s somehow un-American.”
Ms. Marvel ended up being a very successful series with kamala khan being a fan favorite.
