Just wondering, what would you think if your favorite Marvel character doesn't exist in Marvel any longer, and I don't mean simply by his/her lasting death, what would you think of Marvel if one of those two scenarios happened:

1. He/She was removed completely, killed, removed from everyone's mind, with supporting cast and villains entirely deleted
2. The character was never created

What do you say?
 
If Thor never existed? Then I highly doubt I'd reading/collecting Comics as he is the main reason why I started.
 
I would say that I would never be the person I am today, and that my childhood would never be the same...

Im talking about Spider-Man too lol

Well if my favorite character, Spider-Man, never existed, I wouldn't really mind because I wouldn't know what I was missing, lol. But I can safely say that I would be a totally different person since Spider-Man got me into comics, and comics got me into reading, and reading got me into so many other things. Life would be very different without Spider-Man.

If Spider-Man was completely removed from continuity today? I'd be pissed and would probably stop reading all Marvel comics. It would never happen since he's their cash cow but if they did for whatever reason, I'd probably be a bit lost for awhile.

I was actually pretty upset when I thought they were killing Bucky during Fear Itself. Had they actually killed him and returned him to obscurity, I was prepared to drop all Captain America Ed Brubaker books, buy no future crossover events, and never read anything by Matt Fraction (already doing that, but I would've had more reasons). Bucky is probably my favorite new or "re-imagined character" in modern Marvel, so I was actually pretty pissed by just the fake out death.
 
If my favorite characters never existed then the 616 wouldn't have existed.


:ff: :ff: :ff:

Speaking as a Thor fan, as an alternative to all the BS we've gone through in the past 2-3 years, if either of these scenarios could be implemented right about now, it would be an act of mercy.

I'd also have 3-4 feet of empty bookshelves to refill.

Well since my favorite character is Spidey, all I'll say I'd say is.....yeah, been there/done that. :o
 
I don't know. Emma Frost is my favorite character. If she were no longer in Marvel... In both scenarios I'd probably just not read X-books. It may come to that anyways if she dies in AvX. (I know it's a bit overwrought but I'm just saying, the thought has occurred to me.)

Thor is my second favorite, and if Thor were just not part of Marvel, I don't think I'd be reading much Marvel. For one thing, many events wouldn't make a lot of sense, and without Thor at all, Millar's Ultimates runs would be without their best character, and that would totally be weird.

I hope I'm understanding your post.
 
Dude, you could've, y'know, just listed them in one post :dry:


But anyways, I'd be a different person without Spider-Man. Spidey made my childhood and was there when Batman wasn't :woot:
 
If Spidey got deleted from history now, I'd be actually interested to see Marvel universe without him, and to see how they retcon Kingpin's first appearance and encounters with Spider-Man, cause they should keep that one the bigger one of DareDevil's two arch-foes

If he didn't exist I'd give more focus to Hulk, but would read thousands of comics less than I already have
 
My two faves growing up were Batman & Spider-Man... though I would have probably found some other cool character(s) to love if neither had been around...

:yay:
 
For me, I'm all about Spidey, Cyke, Dick Grayson, and Bruce Wayne. If they don't exist....meh...I guess I'd just read more Iron Man and superman comics:o
 
Most of my favorite characters are c-list villains, so i know pain...
 
Gambit is my fave. If he never existed then I wouldn't be the proud owner of his first appearance
 
For me it wouldn't have mattered too much because my favorite is Superman. I would've probably gotten attached to some other Marvel hero that's not Cap.
 
I have two lynch pin Marvel characters, Thor and Spiderman. If one did not exist I would have gravitated towards the other. Considering I don't like how Marvel is handling either character I'm questioning why I still bother.
 
If Daredevil had never existed, then it would be a moot point, because I obviously wouldn't know what I was missing. All of his best stories may have been attributed in some form to another character, and he or she would likely be my favorite instead. Or, barring that, I would probably have followed an X-Men character, since Daredevil and the X-Men line of books were the ones that first got me into reading actual comic books.

If Daredevil were killed off, then my reaction would depend on how well it was handled. If it was a good story and a meaningful death, then I would probably begrudgingly accept it, though still hoping they'd bring him back eventually. If it felt gratuitous or pointless, however, then I would rage-quit Marvel's entire line in protest until they resurrected him somehow.

If Daredevil were selectively deleted from continuity, I would likewise rage-quit Marvel altogether. While a death I could maybe excuse, moves like this don't even have the excuse of telling a good story behind their rationale. (Which is why the DCnU continues to rub me the wrong way currently: Still no sign of Kate Spencer.)
 
Spider-Man & Ghost Rider. It kills me with how bad they've ruined Ghost Rider in the last 12-15 years. Loved the 90's series, everything after that is trash...
 
A Marvel Universe without Iron Man or Hulk, is just an assortment of random assclowns playing dress-up. RuPaul's Drag Race would feel like more heroic entertainment
