Saddest Deaths In Comic Books


The Top Ten

1 Gwen Stacy Gwen Stacy Gwendolyne Maxine "Gwen" Stacy is a fictional character who appears in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, usually as a supporting character in those featuring Spider-Man.

I'm a big spider-man fan, so of course I'm going to vote for Gwen's death.

2 Uncle Ben

poor ben

3 Spider-Man Spider-Man Spider-Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics existing in its shared universe.

Spider-man was my favorite character. I think his death in the Ultimate universe is the most sad. Why did they have to kill him when he was 16? Why?

4 Bucky Bucky
5 Jean Grey Jean Grey Jean Grey, or Jean Grey-Summers, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

This wasn't sad at all. You learned who the Wayne's were on the same page that they died.

8 Colossus Colossus Colossus is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly associated with the X-Men.

It was sad when he got beat with a crossbar and got blown up

13 Glenn Rhee Glenn Rhee Glenn Rhee is a fictional character from the comic book series The Walking Dead and is portrayed by Steven Yeun in the AMC television series of the same name.

She was the perfect embodiment of what it means to be a hero. Not only with spectacular adventures and abilities, but extraordinary kindness and courage as well.

Sue was an extremely devoted ally to The JLA to the point where she was actually considered an honorable member of The League along with her husband, The Elongated Man.
