I distinctively remember that they said there will be a major death every few months or so or something. It was a few years back, I think around 2012 and it looks like they are following that through.
It seems that Marvel wants to drive the concept into the ground. Just like how Hannah-Barbara kept copying the Scooby Doo formula for a bunch of other shows they did. It's like a.......weird self parody thing on Marvel's part combined with the obvious interest in a quick cash grab.
It's like that one Oprah parody; "you get death scene! you get a death scene! and you get a death scene! and you get a death scene! Everybody gets a death scene!"
