Comics in which superheroes were dying is unthinkable simply for their world

High sales of any comic book series will guarantee that the publisher will continue to print these thin magazines until demand falls. This can go on for months, years, or decades for the coolest series. The love of fans, as a rule, knows no bounds and requires that she be fed monthly with new adventures of a super guy (damsel) or a super team in tight tights. The longer the story goes on, the greater the headache for the scriptwriters, who are forced to think over the years how the hero defeats the army of his enemies again and again, although, it would seem, this time for the thousandth time he definitely had no chance. Sooner or later, absurd accidents and divine interventions become the cause of victories. And after thousands of pages, we begin to firmly believe that the hero is immortal. But at the moment when the popularity of the comic strip falls, and the publisher wants to cash in on the superhero for the last time, the scriptwriter gets the opportunity to kill the hero. More often, a character may be allowed to die in an alternate world. And then we see how easy it is, in fact, to kill him when it is allowed.
Below are three Marvel stories in which superheroes died too easily for the comic book world.

3. “Wolverine: Old Man Logan”

Comics in which superheroes were dying is unthinkable simply for their world
The second joint work of screenwriter Mark Millar and artist Stephen McNiven, launched in 2008, talked about an alternative future for the Marvel universe. Millar did not come up with the original plot of the plot, but simply copied it from his early popular work, Especially Dangerous.

According to past stories, the supervillains of the Marvel universe have finally figured out to unite into one huge army and attack the superheroes with common forces. As a result of an effective operation, almost all US defenders were killed. The country was dominated by villains in just one night!

Wolverine was among the superheroes who survived the attack. In this future, he lives and works on a farm with his family. Each month, he is obliged to pay rent for land to the Hulk gang (descendants of the Hulk and Women Hulk). For some reason, Logan no longer releases his claws and even forbade calling himself Wolverine.

Adventures begin after Logan’s family runs out of money and in order to pay off the Hulks, he is forced to accept Hawkeye’s offer to accompany him to Washington with some valuable cargo. During the journey, Logan still decides to tell Hawkeye why he no longer wants to fight.

On that fateful night, when the villains decided to implement the plan to capture the United States, one of the attacks fell on the headquarters of the X-Men. But for some reason, Wolverine alone had to repel the attack of dozens of supervillains. He pierced them through and through, chopping limbs and blowing their heads until one of the villains asked him to stop. Logan could not understand what was happening until Mysterio appeared behind him and explained that the battle that had just happened was an illusion created by him. It turns out that Wolverine was killing all this time, not supervillains, but his friends of the X-Men. According to Misterio, they did not resist.

The moment when Wolverine sees the corpses of friends and realizes that with his own hands he just shredded them to pieces, one of the most tragic and powerful in modern history of the genre. But the fact that Logan did away with his comrades in a few minutes (only Jubilee lasted an hour and a half), who knew him and all his tricks, did not want to fit into his head. And the explanation of Misterio sounds like complete nonsense, because as it turns out not a single mutant did not even use his superpower to slow Wolverine. Why none of them remembered Logan’s regeneration, because even the Hulk can beat him at full strength and after a while he will recover. Because of Misterio’s illusion, readers cannot recognize the actions of the X-Men, but one thing is for sure: they acted, to put it mildly, like complete idiots.

There were a few “simple” deaths in the comic. Hawkeye was shot dead in the head. And Logan cut off the head of the Red Skull with the shield of Captain America.

The culmination of the series was the battle of Logan with the old and demented Bruce Banner. When Banner turned into a Hulk, he ate the enemy, and later Wolverine epic broke from him from the inside, tearing a green monster.
