Stir the Pot Saturday: Week 10

Jeff Hill 03/09/2013 Reviews

Welcome back, everyone! Just a quick reminder of what our goal for each and every Saturday is: Stirring the pot is the act of causing trouble for the sake of your own amusement. So we here at Comic Booked would like to formally invite you to discuss, debate, and start some shit talkin’ about the characters, the creators, and the storylines given to us from the industry we all know and love, hate, and love to hate. So let’s quit wasting time and start the mud (or web) slinging!

 

This Saturday’s question: Which fictional comic character’s death holds the most significance for you as a reader?

Week 10 Picture 2

When people make Damian Wayne jokes, do you find yourself yelling “too soon!” at them? Are you still not really okay with the death of Captain America at the end of Marvel’s Civil War? Does the death of Elektra in Frank Miller’s Daredevil run still give you chills? Were you one of the millions who stood in line to buy the issue where Doomsday and Superman killed each other? Does Dan Slott still make your shit list for what he did to Spider-Man? Or do you just think that “death” and “comic” just has no meaning to you anymore?

Week 10 Picture 3

Go forth and debate! But be sure to back up your responses. Don’t be scared. And don’t give up. After all, no one likes a quitter. And you’re not a quitter, are you?

    Poor Jason Todd!!! Batman carrying his broken body in his arms destroys me every time I reread it

      That is definitely one classic image that tugs at even the deadest of comic fan heartstrings…

    I LOVE this Stir the Pot! This is such a big issue for me. I just don't give a crap about character deaths anymore. I am loving how Marvel has actually kept Jean Grey dead this time around. But the minute she comes back the minute all the work they have put into the NEW Jean Grey (past Jean Grey) goes to shit. I mean how many times can a character die? I think Jason Todd is one the few deaths that was extremely well done. But for the most part ever since Superman dying deaths really mean nothing to me.
