Death in Comics

Batman Death in the Family

With Marvel publishing the four-part Death of Wolverine, this is a feature based on the old saw that nobody ever actually dies in a comic book. It’s a list feature with sixteen examples of superheroes and other comics characters who “died” and then came back to life, including Superman, Batman, Robin, Supergirl, The Flash, Spider-Man, Nick Fury and Jean Grey. Just to break the DC/Marvel dominance, I also got Johnny Alpha from 2000AD‘s Strontium Dog in there. I’m still kicking myself for forgetting Elektra.
