Death of Cpt. America in Civil War. Only major comic book hero killed solely to get a dig in at an American political movement that incidentally has been completely non-violent. Not to mention the enshrinement of the 2nd amendment is at complete odds with the idea of registering super heroes because they're "dangerous".

Why are you ignoring me Chris and Kyle! I just want to be your friend.
Also I like the way you guys confuse me about comic book stories.

Knightfall: Why are there so many "Supervillains"?
Why are there so many "Supervillains"?
The brochure said there'd only be a few "Supervillains"
This is a terrible Death of a Superhero

Death of Superman: Same as above, just replace 'Supervillains' with 'camera angles'

HOWEVER! Worst death ret-con goes to Captain America.

I think all comic book deaths are lame, because of the fact that they always come back, it just gets redundant after awhile...

except for the Ultimate Universe, where spiderman actually died and it was flippen awesome.

Only thing I could think about during this debate was that Marvel needs a Blackest Night type thing to happen.

I think superman was deader than batman because batman was at least conscious
That was kind of their point. Batman wasn't really 'dead' at all, making it a worse comic-book death then superman, who was kinda-sorta-not-really dead.

Why does batman win? Because the Batman always wins, even at losing.

I really have no otherwise input of "deaths" of the comic book universe.

Jean Grey should win this one.
She actually dies everytime, drama follows, and comes back.
And don't tell me Hope Summers is not in some way a reincarnation of Jean Grey...
But her deaths are just gimmicks.

Batman's "death" was a long, drawn-out affair where both the man and the idea of batman were slowly destroyed...before being slowly rebuilt.

Superman's "death" was an excuse to issue a lot of press releases and introduce a few new, minor characters. There's no buildup, just a convenient plot device (Doomsday) that shows up to get him out of the way until...poof, he's all better after the new Superman that no one liked sacrifices himself.

Christ fellas if you're gonna discuss The Death of Superman how can you do that without bringing up this video from the director of Chronicle going on one hell of an enjoyable rant about Superman killing death?

Spider-man's "One More Day" killed the character for me. It's the only event where the very CORE of the character (great power, great responsibility) was butchered so painfully and miserably.

But, um, guys... Batman was JUST "killed" a year or so ago. Dick Grayson took over as Batman (and he was awesome at it), but Batman himself was catapulting through a thousand lives from the dawn of time or something to be reborn and reincarnated into a new form in modern day... or some crap like that. Seriously, Grant Morrison is like Alan Moore's level of crazy, only without the misogyny.

My personal worst comic book death was actually Azrael. Despite his low points in "Knightfall", Azrael was an awesome character who had an awesome series (for the first 50 issues), but it ended with him "dying", but no body was found. They teased his return for years and years... only for them to give him a throwaway death confirmation in Blackest Night.

Grr.....

But....if the reason that Chris won was cos Batman didn't really die....well doesn't that make it the worst death? As in it's bad because it's not impactful at all?

Oh i don't know, i kept loosing track of which of the guys was arguing for or against in this one!

How are they ignoring you? Did you ask to be friends on Facebook or something? I'll go beat them up if you explain your reasoning. Heck, I'll beat them up anyways.
