Yeah, and that whole dismantled-SHIELD thing? By the end of AoS S1, SHIELD had a new Director, and a new mission - to rebuild. Meanwhile, Loki capturing the Asgardian throne is a real development, I'll give you that one. As for the X-Men movies... Tried to change the status quo?! It killed off Xavier, but backtracked. It depowered Mags, but backtracked. It killed Cyke, but then made Wolvie as tame as he'd ever been. It paid off the mutant-human war threatened at the end of X2 on a tiny scale (one battle on one mostly uninhabited small island, big whoop), and utterly ignored the global trauma of Mags' almost-successful attempt to kill all of humanity. Whereas FC showed the X-Men's origins, which changed its initial status quo from nothing, and I certainly hope that DOFP will prove to be a game-changer in that the repercussions of time alteration will result in more out-there stories. Meanwhile, for all its strengths, TWS boiled down to "hidden Nazis want to use magic guns on the magic aircraft carriers to murder huge numbers of people, something the heroes can prevent through lots of punching and blowing sh*t up."
