This doesn't surprise me either. Alonso used to be in charge of Spider-Man back in the day I believe, during the end of the Clone Saga. As for changing current plans I don't think this decision will affect this years plans...could effect future plans though. I'm just glad that Joe Q is no longer EIC. CCO is fine, he was elevated to that newly created position last year. It is also what Geoff Johns is at DC Ent.
