Who else was shocked with the ending?

Considering the solicits all but showed her bleeding out in the snow, the fact that she died just the way they made it look like she would die was...

...like...

...the opposite of shocking.

I didn't read any preview or solicit, I was really shocked LOL

@csguterres: Well, that's fair.

I and many others who did see the solicit took for granted that Nico would die. So it wasn't shocking. Just really, really disgusting and infuriating.

Do not be to surprised its a shit book that is full of shock for the sake of shock so they will end up killing most characters off. Then give Marvel six months and they will bring them back to life and Hopeless will be moved to a lesser book.

@akbogert

That's sad to know that Marvel allowed good characters to be wasted just for shock value... I was expecting to see Nico, Chase, X-23, Hazmat, Reptil and Deathlocket (she is the only new character I liked) live through all the story... (But I hated the fact that Mettle and Juston died as well)

Its honestly one of the worst cases of fridging i have ever seen...

@csguterres: Yes, well, I take back my answer. I said earlier I wasn't shocked, but that's because I had only read the couple pages in which she was crawling bloodily to her staff.

That was before I read back a bit further to discover that Hopeless had used Chase to blow her arm off and dropkick her off the cliff, right as she was relieved to see him and attempting to apologize.

I actually AM shocked, now.

Shocked? No, I called it when issue 4 had Chase say he didn't want to win. So OF COURSE Nico would die cause "Everything people want to happen in this book won't!"
And it's a cheap death. Cheap as hell! Nowhere did Nico A) Ever remembered the other Runaways B) Do any awesome spells C) Even fight! She died saving Hopeless' new characters!

And here's the worst of it. ALL THE FAN FAVORITES ARE DYING! Only one, ONE new character died! In fact, the whole book is revolving around the new characters! They're killing our favorites just so we can have Deathlockette, Axe Bro and Bobby Hill get their own books!

IT
IS
INFURIATING!!!

Actually, two new characters died, Kid Briton and Red Raven. I actually think more new characters will die, but not now, because there wasn't enough time for us to care about them, so he will probably develop them better first, and kill them off later. But I also disliked Nico's death, as well as Juston's and Mettle's.

Actually, Red Raven was an established character. She died without saying a single word.

Wow, I didn't know Red Raven before... I thought Hopeless had created her just to kill her off for shock value...

Exactly why it's so annoying. She died without saying a single word.

Indeed. There actually isn't an excuse for that death; he could have created a character if that was the only thing she would do. And the fact that she was so obscure that most people didn't even know she was pre-established kind of proves that her death wasn't any more impactful than a new character's would have been :/

Hopeless is officially an enemy and a dumbass
