Dead used to mean something.

(May be some spoilers in case youre not updated on major plot and storylines in the Marvel Universe)

Why? It is the biggest question I've been keep asking myself over the last year.

Why did dead stop meaning death? I mean, Cap, Mary Jane, Frank Castle, Hawkeye etc etc..

Why kill characters when the only come back?

Okay, I get captain America, because that was dramatic, but now when it seems that everybody (including nobody such as hawkeye, sorry) is comingback

. My understanding is that Xavier is coming back as well? DC is ressurecting everbody as well. But lets keep to Marvel.

One of my favourite characters is Star-Lord. And to you who hasn't read the Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord went out with a bang, killing Thanos of Titan (after he has come back to life as well. Huh.) and doing so he sacrificed himself. When I read that, I could relate to that. A low-powered guy having no chance at all succeding in his task, and makes the sacrifice necessary to stop Thanos. I felt closure. A love-hate feeling inside. But that feeling I have, will die if they bring him back to life.

Okay, I understand bring cap back for readers, sellers, and comic history making.But the lower dudes? I think Hawkeye and Vision are tiny characters to me, and why? Huh. Anyhow. Quick thought. Why do the dead women stay dead longer/permanent? Take Echo, Yellowjacket and Wasp? Mantis?

But now to my point. Keeping characters dead makes them much more exciting and mysterious. Like Captain Marvel, and I don't mean the son of the one great Captain Mar-Vell, I mean the real one. He has been dead, since the 80s, and I love him. Sure, he has been back short times in the Canserverse, and death's realm with silver surfer, Dead heroes story line, Skrull version and Kree Clone.

The death of Captain Mar-Vell sure as hell meant alot to me. Well writen, dramatic, filled with emotion.

Leaving a permantent marking in my personal life.

I hope they will not ruin it by (according to the rumour) bringing him back during the AvX story line.

And that is my two cents.

It's DC's fault...Superman specifically. This explains:

Comic companies saw the sales spikes of issues and events when major characters were killed or resurrected. Sadly comic buyers are mostly lemmings who continue to buy these in droves and continue the vicious cycle.

@Jorgevy: Me too! I really want him to do more of them. Comicvine should get him to do monthly segments. That'd be sweet.

Dead hasn't meant anything in a long, long time.

We gripe about the return of characters we love in comics, but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle resurrected Sherlock Holmes (with a retcon at that!) long, long ago.

Death does have impact in Archie Ms Grundy. there are no revives for the Archie universe. Would you like me to make a count. I can make a list
