  1. There are two main times when comic book fans gripe: When something changes and when something stays the same.

  2. All too true, but, in fairness, would it be too much to ask for comics publishers to stop killing characters as cheap sales stunts, or to show us that, oh, the big threat in this latest crossover is really serious? Or, for that matter, stop bringing back characters who, for years, were considered to be all dead? Because haven't things gone too far when no one takes any character death at all seriously anymore? Even Bucky Barnes and Barry Allen are alive again.

    2. Isn't Spider-Gwen an alternate-universe version? That's not really the same thing as bringing a character back from the dead.

    3. I think he means the "Gwen Stacy" clone/child that Norman Osborn created/fathered. It was pretty messed up.

    4. Oh, that. Right. Now let us never speak of this again.

    5. nah, I meant Spider-Gwen. yeah, she's an alternative reality version, but, you know, same thing, to me, anyway. & the less said about the clone/child the better, I think. . .

    6. That doesn't bother me as much. Any time you do an alternate universe story, things are going to be different; that's the whole point. That's inevitably going to include some characters being alive who are dead in the original continuity, and vice versa.

  3. He actually has a valid point.

  4. Seems like it would be fine if they didn't keep trying to treat death like a big permanent thing.

    Seriously, there's like what, several thousand ways to bring back the dead in the Marvel and DC Universes now? You don't grieve your lost loved ones in a universe like that, you just set about finding another Monkey's Paw or whatever that'll fix this.
