I would like to draw your attention to the excellent Death and Return of Superman: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PlwDbSYicM
I second the above. Some fun cameos in there too.
Clearly he is the only DC fan who never read the Blackest Night series, in which like dozens of super heros die and are later brought back from the dead
I'm mildly surprised no one actually just threw a copy of the book at this "gentleman"'s head.
Does this guy know there is a reason that DC puts "Rebirth" or "Return of.." on some of thier books?
Maybe this guy lives in some glorious alternate reality where we never, ever had to see Jason Todd again...
Yeah, Marvel is always bringing back a dead character here and a dead character there. DC at least has the balls to kill off and bring back characters an entire multi-verse at a time.
Pre-Crisis, Steven Trevor died and was brought back to life a minimum of three times. Might have been more.I'm pretty sure once it happened twice in one issue.
Pffft. A plain white T-shirt? Mr.Tim always has a logo design on OVC shirt. What the frell?
I gotta say, I literally lol'd at this. :)
Feh! Both Marvel and DC are ripping off Sir Arthur Conan Doyle!
He's right, you know.
Seems someone doesn't know that DC stands for "Dying = Characterization."
Sometimes I wonder if Mr. Tim has trouble detecting sarcasm in his customers. I just have a hard time believing that a comic book reader could ever say something THIS stupid and be completely serious about it.
I've definitely had discussions with die-hard DC (or Marvel) fans who, in order to assert the superiority of a company that's essentially identical to its rival, just sort of make up what each company does and doesn't do. I'm not sure if this is because they haven't read enough comics to know what they're talking about, or they're willfully ignoring evidence that doesn't back up their pet company being the best.
I tried to think of characters that had died and stayed dead in either universe, and all that came to me was Uncle Ben. You win by one Marvel.
Gwen Stacy's never genuinely come back to life, either. There was a clone created by the Jackal, and there's a few What If? stories, but she's never been brought back into continuity proper.
Pretty sure the original Thunderbird hasn't been brought back, either. I know he was in that Chaos War: X-Men mini, but I'm not sure if that was Astral Plane or reality or what, as I didn't read any of the main book for that one. And if he was brought back, it might give him credit as the character who stayed dead the longest before getting resurrected, but I haven't done that research.
Pretty sure Jean Grey of the main Marvel universe has remained dead for almost 10 years now. That's pretty huge and unprecedented considering how major of a character she was for so long.
The last ten years have seen the return of Hawkeye, Bucky (BUCKY!!!), Steve Rogers, 20-something Peter Parker, Johnny Storm, etc. etc.... So rolling out one example of a character staying in the dirt doesn't make Marvel any sort of exemplar. That said, the level of ignorance of whoever this comic is about.... that really is "unprecedented".
