Re: Why do Marvel stories take place exclusively in NYC?

As of right now:

The Hulk (well, Banner and his new team) is in the New Mexico.
Scarlet Spider is in Houston.
Guardians of the Galaxy are not on earth.
Nova as well.
Gambit has been all over the globe in his series.
Cyclops' team is in Canada.
Savage Wolverine takes place in the Savage Land.
Captain America takes place in another dimension!

What books are you reading? To me, the majority are NOT in New York at the moment.
Sure, that's where the Avengers meet. But that's where their HQ is. Their first arc took place on Mars!
OTOH

The FF and the Fantastic Four are based in NYC.
Daredevil is based in NYC.
Spider-Man is based in NYC
Captain America is based in NYC.
The X-Men are based near NYC.

Now they may venture out of NYC from time to time but they are based there and have adventures there.
That's still less than half of my off-the-top-of-my-head list, which proves my point. (And, like I said, Captain America hasn't been in New York in his mag since Marvel Now started)

The majority of the books out there take place nowhere near NYC these days.

Just the basics who are pretty much tied to New York, Spidey, DD, FF, and Avengers.
