Can you name some DC/Marvel characters who had died and STAYED dead?
alternate universes notwithstanding
Before the New52, Sgt. Rock was confirmed as having died by the last shot fired in the European theater of operations.
In staying dead, being unpopular helps immensely
Hulk's wives are very dead.
Katma Tui's been dead for almost 30 years
The original Rikki Barnes still exists on the first version of counter earth that Franklin created, the one that was flooded when it was pulled into the 616 universe to take the place of the original counter earth.
I keep losing track of how many Counter-Earths there are. I know the one from Onslaught Reborn was in a pocket universe, but there's nothing to say Rikki and that entire world weren't just hidden away there by Franklin, especially considering that Rikki knew everything she should have from her time on Counter-Earth and they seemed to be pretty similar places from what was shown.
Now that the High Evolutionary's Counter-Earth is back for no raisin, I would guess the Handbook needs an update to reflect the fact that there isn't room for both Counter-Earths in the solar system.
Or you know, the Avengers could blow some of them up for shits and giggles.
Ship is still dead, right?
Tora? She did come back though, she was still around when Flashpoint happened and she's still around now
Sigrid on the other hand got skinned alive in the early 2000s and was never seen again
The Flash Family (fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu)
Essentially anyone who's related to Mar-Vell, or is someone Spider-Man cares about
good point; their death was before the story started.
I'm guessing Marvel brought back the Beyonder even after the ending of Secret Wars II. (looks it up) oh jesus christ, they made a RACE of Beyonders?
Skin and Banshee (and Synch, I guess but who cares about him). It's a bit more difficult with Banshee since his body is up and running but I think it's safe to say that's not him.
This big guy here, revived during necrosha but that was after almost 30 or 20 years of being dead
Well yeah, if they brought her back, Faggots would whine that he isn't fucking Hawkgirl.
>Ship is still dead, right?
She was revealed destroyed back during that Thanos miniseries before Annihilation, and I don't think anybody cared enough to bring her back.
She may come back during Hopeless's Star-Lord Origins series, but that's a prequel so it doesn't count.
The sad part is that, for first time, it should had been a dream or some shit.
Yeah Thunderbird is likely never coming back since Warpath fills his role and has been around for far longe than John ever was.
>Ship is still dead, right?
616 Ship was only seen in flashbacks and Pete claims she was destroyed. The backstory of Star-Lord in 616 is insanely convoluted because of writers doing one thing, then new writers coming along and using the 70's stuff as canon.
Similarly the current situation with "is the Groot in GOTG right now the original Groot or not?" is fucked beyond help.
Jesse Bedlam too. And I think Negasonic Teenage Warhead is still dead?
Yeah, it's not like that huge Spider-event called "Dead No More", written by Slott, is going to possibly ressurect Sable, especially considering that he shown that Pete is still feeling guilty as fuck about the whole situation in one of the recent issues.
Do Black Lanterns count?
Cause if so the list shortens by a good chunk.
Wasn't Vic Sage in the new suicide squad?
I mean it's not the same as the Question Vic, but in name's sake ...
Also I think Ted Kord was briefly shown at the beginning of that Forever Evil jazz, talking to Lex Luthor.
I think technically according to OP's exclusion of alternate universes, with DC anybody who died before Flashpoint is dead even if they're headlining their own book now.
if she was already a major character that's not textbook fridging. Fridging is the act of killing off a garbage character for the sake of building the main protag's character base or reason for a certain story plot or something.
I tried to leave out all the normal anti-male connotations that go with people who use the term fridging #takingitback
Refer to the original fridge of Kyle's girlfriend, who I think has remained dead?
>Fridging is the act of killing off a garbage character for the sake of building the main protag's character base or reason for a certain story plot or something.
She was killed off to give John and Hal man pain, that IS fridging
I thought there was a Spider-man comic that said Silver Sable was still alive somewhere.
