I'd rather them kill characters (that will most likely be back) than cancel books. There are currently no Marvel ongoing stories in the cosmic arena.

Pathetic, that all it is

@Emperor Gonzo Noir:  
I totally agree; just concentrate on telling great stories instead of cheap gimmicks.
@jloneblackheart:
I think when one begins relying on comic book death to sell books, I think you will inevitably write yourself into a corner and lose readers in the longr un, as it will become more of a boring clich'e than it already is. Especially when the dead character will just end up coming back.

What the f--k.....?

Posted by PumpkinBomb

I'm in favour of a lot of characters dying, just not methodically.

So they're basically admitting they can't write decent stories anymore.  Lame.

Sad, but seemingly true. I hope we're wrong though.

Too bad death in real life wasn't like death in comic books, am I right? You are anlmost guarenteed to come back eventually.

Unless you're Uncle Ben, he's probably in Marvel heaven right now shouting obscenities because he's never coming back

Why do you need to read a comic to find that someone died? The internet will be complaining about it that day.

What in the hell has happened to the once proud comic publisher Marvel?  Is this what it's come to for them? For us?  Kill a character every quarter?   
 
Maybe they plan on killing-off all of their characters as they go out of business due in part to the decline of print media and also due to their tired, worn-out and played-out non-shocking "shock moments."   
 
Maybe Disney is secretly a sinister behind-the-scenes force that is making them do this kind of stuff.   
 
Whatever the reason; it has to stop.  It's absloute bullshit.
Posted by The Hobgoblin
@Emperor Gonzo Noir: I think SC means that she biys the comic based on who dies inside. Could be wrong, though.
@Emperor Gonzo Noir:
Wellt hey brought him back in a way when that alternate reality Uncle Ben showed up in Peter David's Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man; similar to how Gwen Stacy's clone was used.

this is just another sign that the current regime running marvel hates the fans

I kinda miss Quesada now...

@Gambit1024:
Makes you wonder if this was a Doomsday plot he crafted and activated before he left the EiC position. Muahahhahaha!!!
Posted by Gambit1024
@The Hobgoblin: I wouldn't doubt it. Four characters per year? Well we got Torch already, that "Death of Spider-Man BS"  so how about we make bets on the last two? 
 
I'm gonna go with Moon Knight and Dracula. 
Posted by The Hobgoblin
@Gambit1024:
I'll go with Ms.Marvel and Vulture for my hero and villain choices.

I need to send a message to Marvel that as a fan of theirs, I only care when they kill people. I don't care so much about the quality of story, or characterization, really, as long as its in continuity. got Bendis as the writer, and a good artist like Greg Land, and has some deaths? Even of panel deaths? I'll buy it!! If i just read about it on the internet well... *shrugs*

They need to seriously have a Mutant Holocaust at Marvel. There are way too damn many mutants running around.

Stupidest idea I heard in my entire life...this is what is call OVER DOING it...what makes the impact death of a main character is that it happens out of nowhere...if you kill every main character off every month it's not that big of an impact. It will probably also turn a lot of people off after awhile and they're not gonna wanna buy the book.

@Emperor Gonzo Noir:  LMAO. I can't wait to see Jessica Jones make love to Luke Cage in the open air in front of the New Avengers and Avengers whilst Spider-man is dying in the background.

Did you read his X-men or his Superman run or are you just going by Exiles, because his Exiles was surprisingly good
Posted by Mercy_
@Emperor Gonzo Noir: Read his X-Men run...in my defense, it was the first X-Men comics I ever read (started buying the trades at Hope, I think), and I didn't know any better.

@The Dark Huntress:  Awh, he was... okay, lets swap in Fraction. All the characters can be über chillaxed hipsters. Can't wait to see Thor's Tumblr account as well, where he posts messages glorifying his brother Loki, while Balder cries in the corner.

And like that, you've given a ray of hope to a dark situation :)

If you like Nightcrawler I'd recommend it. Its heavily focusing on his origin, Azazel and the has the X-Men journeying to the dimension where Azazel resides.

Yeah I can see why, BUT! I want to see how Angel's ancestors would react to his technoorganic wings and killing people willy nilly? And what does Azazel think about it? Huh huh? Yeah!!
