Death

Post by Delita-1 »

Do any PEOPLE ever die in the comics?

I'm getting rather irritated that everyone is always okay.

Circuit Breaker almost gets killed, but... No. Not as far as I remember, although I haven't read all the comics yet.

ok, seeing as you said PEOPLE, I am taking this beyond TF....

In the x-men comics Pyro died and has been dead for a long long time now.
He had the legacy virus and was dying, in his last few days of life he had a change of heart and realised he was wrong in life and ended up being a hero saving Senator Kelly from an asassination attempt. That's the kind of comic death it would cheapen by bringing the person back (kinda like Whedon did with Colly :x )

Now I remember other deaths outside Transformers. Being a Batman fan, I can tell there are deaths there. A very known issue is "a Death in the Family" (not sure if that's the original title), where the second Robin is killed by the Joker. This was a story requested by a survey among Batman fans. Another remarkable case can be when the third Robin shows up. His mother is killed too and his father falls into a coma.

If you go further, there is also the great "Return of the Dark Knight", when Batman finally gets wild and kills the Joker... Or any of the Sin City stories. Indeed, there's killing into comics too.

Nah, you were plenty clear. Hot Rod just likes to seize any chance he gets to diss Joss Whedon (not that I blame him). :D

i think she's talking human death. transformers can be rebuilt, especially with enough nucleon ;) i think i've only see a couple tf's actually DIE... though the only one that was really emotional for me was in beast wars. my favorite episode of anything, anywhere.
