Much like the North Korean military, Marvel believes that if you keep relaunching long enough, eventually the damn thing will stay up. Hence the upcoming yet-another-revamp of the Ultimate books, and the likes of Fantastic Four, X-Force, Other X-Force, Hulk and Wolverine all being slated for fresh issue #1s only a year or so after the last one.
In fact, I don’t have a particular problem with starting from #1 when you have a genuinely fresh start on the book. At least that’s drawing attention to the first issue of a story. Other books like Daredevil and Hulk are keeping the writer but changing the set-up, which is a bit tenuous, but it’s something. And then we have Wolverine, which is rebooting its numbering in the middle of a storyline.
