Everyone, because I hate pointless character deaths.

And seriously Arcade should never be able to kill anyone.

M. All of the above.

Yeah, I can't vote. Even if I wanted to take sides, I honestly don't want Nico or Chase to die, so even if it were just those two on the list I couldn't make myself vote.

Really? You guys are really boycotting a poll about avengers arena? I know people hate the book, but that's just bananas.......

I do not know many of these characters but I'm pulling for Cammi with Nico a close second.

I'm not boycotting the poll, I just seriously don't want anyone to die.

I don't even know who half these characters are.

Voted for Chase as I read some Runaways and I like him.

@Decoy Elite: Ha Ha Ha. I was just joking. I thought it was funny there was three comments, and no one voted.....

If I actually believed that the deaths of any of these characters would lead to serious repercussions down the road and be the basis for a meaningful story, I would be fine with most of this list getting the ax. Sadly we are now in the days of meaningless deaths come resurrections and storylines whose impact is forgotten or rewritten soon after by the next event.

Marvel has abused these things for so long there really is no impact to it anymore. Long ago the death of Captain Marvel was treated as an event because of its finality, now we joke about who is going to die and return in under a year next. I would suggest not taking anything that happens in here too seriously because Marvel will change their minds and retcon nearly everything involved sooner or later

I agree. These deaths maybe completely meaningless. That would only cheapen this story overall. Let's hope Marvel gets a little brave makes a few of these deaths stick.

Speaking of this story. I don't believe Marvel will only leave one standing. Perhaps the top 3-5 will survive and probably form a new team.

@judasnixon: Heh. Not boycotting; I just honestly can't pick.

@Brazen_Intellect: @knighthood: See the thing is, I believe the deaths are meaningless either way. If they get resurrected in short time: meaningless. If they don't, then fine -- what, precisely, did their death accomplish? Making Arcade seem legitimate? Motivating the other characters...until they died? Again: meaningless. I don't even care whether the deaths are permanent. They're not accomplishing anything useful except a story that some people find interesting and others find lame (and that's just the readers). What the deaths do accomplish is hurting fans of the characters. So, a book doing no tangible good and much tangible bad: that's why folks like me complain.

All of them.

Except Arcade. Arcade is lame.

Marvel has a huge hard on for killing minor villains, there's no way Arcade is surviving this story.

Looks like Nico is clearly winning. I'm still pulling for Cammi. It'd be interesting if Arcade was killed.

Voted Hazmat. She was one of my favorites in AA.

Ha Ha Nico's winning.....

The one I really wanna see survive is Cammi. With issue 3 Hopeless really made her so interesting in such a small amount of time and I really would like to see her meet Drax again.

I still think it is funny that people are saying the deaths are meaningless.

I will take Nico, Chase, and Hazmat all before I take X-23 (she can always be re-cloned).

I want to support Darkhawk as an old school New Warriors fan, but if the amulet and Darkhawk powers pass on to Chase, I think I could support Chris's death and Chase carrying on the legacy.
