Agreed. The fighting was excellent but no one died? Seriously? It diminishes the threat greatly when the invading Chitauri army causes billions of dollars in damage but no loss of life. I understand that showing civilians being vaporized would be a little dark but at least reference the destruction caused. Even a throwaway line in a news broadcast about thousands dying would have worked.
