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!"

....WHY!? What's the point? It's not like they ever keep their characters dead anyway. Death in Marvel means less than any other work of fiction.

Basically, if a death contributes to a certain character's origin story, then it is very unlikely that the person who died will come back to life.

If a death does not contribute at all to any character's origin story, then they will most likely be back at some point.

I never said it was a certainty =P

 

and while Gwen might not be back in the main continuity, she has shown up various times in the ultimate universe as a major character, something which "ultimate ben parker" has yet to do.

When in Rome, is a good treat IMO.

Other than that, can't say I've read much Catwoman solo titles.

Show me the way to go home - I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago - And it’s gone right to my head
Wherever I may roam - On land or sea or foam
You can always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home.

I haven't read a single Catwoman title. As much as I like the character (when she's one of Batman's allies), I've never been interested enough to buy any of her books. I do wish that we'd get our own main universe version of Helena Wayne though (shameless Bat X Cat shipper :P) Especially now that the New 52 has taken away Cassandra Cain and left Bats without anything remotely close to a daughter (unless that's where they're going with Harper Row)

And while we're on the subject of comic book deaths, does anyone else hate when a death or resurrection is advertised waaaay before it actually happens? I know it's to boost sales but that kinda ruins the book for me.

 

Yep big bugbear of mine.

Helena Wayne only exists in the New 52 Earth 2. She existed in the main universe for a bit but then went back to Earth-2.

Yeah I know she exists in Earth 2. I just want a main universe version of her, not one that comes for a visit every now and then and goes back to her universe.

I guess we'll have to deal with the crazy Italian Helena that shows up and shoots everything in sight. Ah yes, Bertinelli I think was her last name. :shrug:

 

No Wayne for you! :P

Wait...I'm confused. Is the mainstream Marvel Universe pulling a New 52 or is it just the Ultimate universe?

Both?

They say the Ultimate and 616 Universes are going to be "mashed" together into one. A mashing that'll take place in "Battleworld". with the end results being what'll be the "All-New Marvel Universe"!

 

With some heroes we know, being either gone or staying.

Depending on what they do for said end result of Secret Wars.

 

So .......... I guess it's going to be UMU vs. 616 MU, in an all out battle royale, and who or whatever's left will make a all new universe of Marvel?   :shrug:
