I read the spotlight issues (one-offs that ‘spotlight’ a certain character) when the subject interests me. Also started reading Regeneration 1, which is a continuation of the original Marvel comic from the 80s.


You know, TF comics also have multiple universes. They follow the path of Marvel more closely since they started as Marvel comics. I do like how Marvel created their universe separation, unlike DC.

~MegaSilver, getting two IDW TF Volumes this Saturday.
The main reason I like Marvel better than DC is that Marvel doesn't kill a superhero and then say "Wait that was from an alternate universe." Ruins it for me, at least Marvel doesn't do that to my knowledge. Ranting aside I've been reading some of the Teen Titans comics lately.
I like Marvel and DC equally and I think it's fair to say that both entities kill and revive their characters. What superhero characters have died and never returned in any way? I can only think of one...

Re: Comics: what are you currently reading?

I just had to look it up. Here is a wikipedia page with characters who stayed dead (and ones that came back).

Re: Comics: what are you currently reading?

That list would be tough to keep up with - they'll probably have to pull off half the names within a year the way characters die and come back.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

I don't see any Marvel characters, on the list of those who have died and come back. Might be because of what Batman said earlier with those that die in Marvel being clones.

"I am definitely a mad man with a box."

"They are too numerous to fight. What shall we do?" "Fight anyway."

"You can never defeat another if you know not how to defeat yourself."

Re: Comics: what are you currently reading?

There's a very lengthy list of them in that link, actually.

I'm talking about the list right at the bottom of the page of those who have been resurrected. The list is all DC, no Marvel.

"I am definitely a mad man with a box."

"They are too numerous to fight. What shall we do?" "Fight anyway."

"You can never defeat another if you know not how to defeat yourself."

I think you missed it. There's a bunch of Marvel characters on the Resurrection list.

I don't know how old your son is, but most of the recent GL comics are targeted for a teen audience. There is often murder portrayed. My son is a bit too young for this content so he's been reading the GL comic series based on the Cartoon Network cartoon. It only ran for 10 issues or so, but it really enjoyed it and it was age appropriate.
No the GL was for me...He's barely old enough for the cartoon but he watches it sometimes. Just watching the cartoon with him and seeing all the C3G releases revolving around GL got me interested to read more. He's currently now officially in love with the tiny titans so I may actually get to read something on my own.

Thanks for the heads up on the series based on the cartoon I will look into it for reading with my son. Most of the comics based off of the cartoon series seem to be OK, at least the ones we've found.

It's pre-New 52, but as I understand it most of the GL stuff carried over, so I'd start with the graphic novels and pick up Green Lantern: No Fear by Geoff Johns, which I believe collects the start of his run.
Thanks Bats I will look into that one.

I had similar thoughts when I first looked at it. When I first searched there was a hit for a blog entry mentioning how Sabertooth died and has quietly been dead for a year (no idea when the page was written), but I couldn't find any mention of him on that wikipedia page. That said I was a little surprised that there were so many dead dead characters and not so many alive dead characters.

Re: Comics: what are you currently reading?

Yeah, but if you take all of the dead dead characters who were replaced by other heroes with the same name (just a different secret identity), it cuts it down significantly. That's how these comic companies update their characters for changing times, while still taking advantage of the name recognition.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Comics: what are you currently reading?

Check out some 2000AD.
Dredd has been one continuous story since the 70s.
Every year that passes in real life, a year passes for Dredd.
Lucky for him he has high tech to slow the aging process but he is getting old. Anderson is really pushing it. As a telepath, the anti-aging interferes with her powers, so she ages at a normal rate.

Tornado was the Nagrub thought bubble above the head of Brunak...
