I'm not one to latch on fanboy over-reaction and conspircacy theories but the evidence does seem to be piling up that Marvel is burying X-Men and the Fantastic Four due to Fox owning the movie rights of those characters. Now I don't want to start a discussion on the movie aspect of this about the over-rated MCU movies and how they need to get back those characters (save that discussion for the Entertainment Board), but I want to discuss the comic side of it. The Fantastic Four comic is already done, but it looks like the characters will survive in other titles after Secret War based on some teaser images Marvel releases. But no FF title apparently. Same with the X-Men. In the last issue of Uncanny X-Men one of the characters asks if they even need to be called X-Men at this point, which seems both a bit meta and lays the groundwork for a rebranding. Now Marvel is well within their rights to cut the FF and X-Men if they want but isn't this detrimental to the characters and the comic publisher? It really seems like Marvel is trying to bury the FF and X-Men names but somehow keep the characters at the same time, which seems like bad business and disrespectful to fans.
