    I wouldn't mind. I'd just be waiting for Nick Fury: Rebirth.

    I didn't like it the first time that they killed Nick Fury.

    Doing it a second time would be pretty frickin' redundant, eh?

    He's Nick Fury, not Jean Grey.

    Best Fury line ever was in Bendis' DD:

    DD: Fury, how'd you get in here?
    Fury: What, are you kidding me? I'm a spy. In fact, I'm, THE spy!

    I Love Fury as a character. I agree with Deemar. Fury is the glue that holds a large part of Marvel together. Fury is Shield. If fury dies shield should die too. and washington with it.... ... and maybe Switzerland.

    Killing a character is a slap in the face to every creator who worked on the character and every fan who ever bought a comic because of that character.

    It just seems like you're suggesting killing a character for the single intent of quenching some sick fanboy bloodlust.

    The Magneto suggestion is a complete bulls**t about-face of the principles of the character. What are you Bendis? Magneto would never lead a SHIELD type organization. Do a little research. These characters have over 40 years of history which have reinforced the principles of the character. Go read Uncanny X-Men #150, a defining moment for the character. Then come back here and tell us how he would be running SHIELD again.

    (shakes head)

    Kids nowadays...:rolleyes:

    -Phoenix

    -Barry Allen

    Okay really now.

    Who the hell was buying Amazing Spider-Man because of Gwen Stacy?

    Let's have a show of hands...

    so it doesn't match your criteria literally. The point is, she was a massively important character, and her death heightened that

    She never had her own comic.

    Neither did Jean.

    The Barry Allen was pretty much because the character was stagnated by a string of bad writers.

    Enter self-sacrificing death scene and turning over the legacy to the next generation.

    Re-igniting the popularity of the franchise.

    The Flash is dead! Long live the Flash! The Flash is dead again! Long live the Flash again!

    Jean is dead! Long live Madelyne! Jean is back! Jean is dead again! Jean is back again! Dead agai... whoops aliv... DAMNIT! I can't keep track! Long live Rachel and Emma!

    Avengers Disassembled! New Avengers Assemble! New Avengers Disassemble! Long live Hawkeye!

    I betcha a hundred bucks the pattern follows the pits and peaks of the sales charts.

    Unless you suggest a good reason for Nick Fury to be killed off and replaced, this question is pretty silly. Why would we want to kill off a character unless we didn't like him or her? You might as well be asking, "Do you guys like Nick Fury or not?" And even then, it's not a particularly good reason for spontaneously offing a long-time character.

    Jean initial death was in no way a slap in the face, and she was extremely beloved being Cyclops primary love interest (remember Cyclops used to be that books Wolverine) and much of the story revolved around her and him together. However the death lives on as one of the most emotionally impacting stories in comics.
