This news totally took me by surprise! My friend told me of this news and was shocked. Yeah Carmine was old and all, but you
never really expect
someone like a
family member or a celeb you really like to die. I came on here because I wondering if he was joking with me or if he really meant it. This being Comic Vine and all I thought they'd have something about it on the homepage or something. When I came on to see only news about upcoming comics and reviews I was really surprised. Surely this site would've have acknowledgement to such a person of influence on the comic world. I mean he brought back super heroes when the genre was dying with the Flash (Barry Allen). Without him creating Barry odds are Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Robin would have faded into obscurity and
Marvel would have no way have brought back their own heroes.
Also Mr. Infantino created such popular characters as Wally West, Barbara Gordon, Captain Cold, Black Canary, Elongated Man, Mirror Master, and Gorilla Grodd to name a few. On top of that he has done covers for every single DC comic book at the time he was working at the company, changed the Batman logo and his design remained until the New 52, and he was a editorial director. This man was a legend and believe he should have much more recognition on this website. RIP Carmine Infantino!
