This kind of thing irritates me and you see it a lot in modern Marvel. A character does something in a "big" book that pisses off whoever writes the character in a "lower-tier" book, so the aggrieved writer gets permission from his editor to write a reaction to the offending scene.

What inevitably happens is that the offending scene is re-written in a way that ludicrously sentimentalizes the character. Either he gets ton of new dialog that exposits what he was really thinking, or the actual sequence of events is totally changed to make the character look better.

It's far more tedious reading than the writer just acknowledging that things happened the way the audience saw it the first time, then moving on express the character's POV on things in a manner that might be slightly more subtle than a brick to the face.
