I didn't say that. I'm saying that comic book fans are naturally more inclined to think that way than non comic book fans.

Well, Breaking Bad or Dexter are bad examples, what with them having no sci-fi or fantasy elements to them.

And I completely disagree with you there. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a perfect example. But Angel and Buffy died and came back to life on that show, and it didn't diminish future character deaths because they were handled the right way. It depends entirely on how you do it. If you treat characters coming back as no big deal and do it all the time, the yes, you're right. If it's rare and treated as a huge event, then you don't have that problem. Right now, in the MCU, it's rare and being treated as a huge event, so I don't think it's going to spoil audiences at all.

The world does not work the way you think it does:
