Nope. What Marvel's doing now is working just fine for them.

Yes. The frequent renumbering is counterproductive. http://www.comicvine.com/profile/nothing2lose/blog/marvel-at-marvel-s-ingenuity/96198/

They could benefit from one in several areas. Though people like to believe shitty continuity is preferable by everyone.

I am actually okay with reboots as long as they are full reboots and not something like New 52. But it should also be something done every 50 to 60 or so years. I actually like seeing stories and ideas modernized for the present time period. I enjoy seeing what could be done now that couldn't be done back then. That and I don't think it hurts to clean house and streamline everything.

Ugh, I hate renumbering, its fine at the time but when you are wanting to read older stuff, it is confusing trying to figure out which is the right one especially if you are unfamiliar with the system. Its even worse if the numbering reverts back to the original for a period of time. I just wish they'd stick with the new numbering at least until it hits triple digits before changing it again.

I'm fine with it as is, though I really wouldn't mind if they did. They probably will at some point anyways, most likely if they get into another slump and or want/need new readers. Either way though I'd be fine with it so long as they handled it properly which I'm not sure if they would.

Reboots are terrible, generally speaking.

Even though I am new to Marvel compared to many others and it can be a little difficult or even a bit confusing to get into a character, I would hate for all the continuity to be lost. Especially when Marvel NOW! is actually doing really amazing at introducing new readers to characters. They are also making a ton of new series about lesser characters.
Someone else also mentioned that it wouldn't be a shocker that they would also cut out a lot of B/C-list characters. Marvel has always been good with giving them series so maybe it wouldn't happen.
And I would really, really hate to have to go through major character developments again. It would be painful to read some characters (Wolverine, Deadpool, etc.) where the writers would either have to pick a personality or go through all of that change all over again. It would be even worse if they just sped through it as well.

At the moment, I don't think that Marvel should have a complete reboot, unless they are wrapping up all of the characters' stories first. However, they could have a reboot in maybe 10 to 30 years.

Personally, I say yes, but don't do it half as*ed and completely rushed like DC did. Sit down, plan it out IN DETAIL and do a FULL reboot, not any of this "oh, but some stuff is still canon" jive. Either fully commit, or don't do it at all.

Yeah, man. That picking and choosing what's canon stuff is annoying.
Does anybody know if they ever explained why Batgirl isn't paralyzed anymore?

She was paralyzed, just not for a long time, she recovered after a lot of physical therapy.

I didn't know if it would be something like that, something really stupid, or just never explained.
Thank you.

NO!

that would require them to end Thor God of Thunder by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic, and Hell will have LONG frozen over and consumed every human soul on earth before i let that happen, that is the best thor series EVER, yes even better than the walt simonson stuff, and IT WILL NOT END BEFORE ITS TIME.

besides all that, marvel now has been fantastic, some of the best books ive read sense i started reading comics in 2008, and infinity was the best even they have ever done and the god butcher/god bomb arc of thor got, is not only the best thor arc ever, IMO its the best comic book arc ever.

so no, marvel is doing just perfect right now

It's impossible to appease fans with reboots. Marvel attempted to reboot one of its flagship characters with OMD and brand new day look at how people still say that hate it.
