We could do without more deaths, please

The Cleveland Plain Dealer gushes over the fourth Civil War issue, and sugarcoats the golden calf of death, which turns up in here too:
Issue four is a turning point when one of Cap's crew is killed in a battle. How Marvel is going to end this series and restore some kind of order and trust in the superhero universe is beyond me.

Barring the convenient excuse of mind control (which is certainly possible), there is no way that these folks could ever trust one an other after the smoke clears.

Meanwhile, it's one of the most fascinating story lines to come out of Marvel in years.
Please, do spare us that sleazy approach, because it certainly does not work on me. I have no interest in this dud, and even less interest in if a member of either side's been slain. Deaths are not something to celebrate or even worth using as a selling point anymore. In fact, they shouldn't have ever been so in the first place.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
