lisacharly: Stop killing the B-list already!

No journals and we already have six frequent customers. Quite a tally.

Alright, so, deaths in comics. It's not deaths that bug me. I'm all for the occasional tear-jerking goodbye, the death that has a lasting repercussion and brings the team to their knees.

It's deaths done to make a story seem serious that piss me off. Like Northstar's death in Wolverine. What the hell was up with that? At least Nunzio and Christina did something interesting with it afterwards, but we all know gutting JP was thrown in just to make that Wolverine arc seems serious. This bugs me. If it had been a good, decent death, that's one thing. But instead, it was just to add 'impact'.

Furthermore, it's not just Marvel doing this - the solicits for The Intimates #10 suggest death as well (I think it's Sparky or Kefong), probably to help save the book from the bad sales it's getting. Does the public honestly go for deaths like this? Will killing off some high-school kid really help the series where the excellent writing didn't?

I find it strange that instead of character development or even MEANINGFUL deaths, we just seem to get random deaths.

Rant over. For now.

Speaking of RP, you vanished off the face of mine. :( Doesn't bother anyone though, pretty much everyone vanished.

Sorry. :( I just kept getting so lost and feeling like such a newb. :( If you want me to come back, I most certainly will! :)

I'll ban somebody for making you feel like that. You don't have to if you don't want to, I'm just curious as to where the hell everyone went. Inazuma couldn't of scared them off that fast.

It wasn't anybody in particular, just me being insecure. :\ Hey, I'll come back. I've gotten a better hang of this RP thing in the meantime anyhoo. :)

Everyone feels like that sooner or later, hun.

But YAY!! People still like me and aren't avoiding me! :)
