I agree with you on both counts.  I'm OK with most tropes
-- I can even stand a clone story now and then.  But I
really, really dislike comic book deaths, and I'm pleased that,
as far as I can remember, pretty much everyone who has
died in an LNH story over the years has remained dead.

Of course, this means that I'll have to resurrect all of them
for the upcoming "Beigest Night" crossover...
