Wow this sucks. I really love reading about Carol, not just Ms. Marvel. It should be a 'baton' to hand off and just put someone else in the suit and then read their story.
Captain America is a different situation because they went with Bucky which had a tie to it. If they had put some bad guy in the suit and then had him become Captain America and the focus on the comic I'd be WTF? about that too.
They are really trying hard (maybe too hard) to sell this whole "Dark Reign" thing.
