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 Spider-Man Spider-Man Spider-Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics existing in its shared universe. The character was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko, and first appeared in the anthology comic book Amazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962) in the ...read more.

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?

3 Uncle Ben

poor ben

4 Bucky Bucky Sergeant James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was a former soldier of the 107th Infantry Regiment and the childhood best friend of Steve Rogers. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he has been portrayed by Sebastian Stan. ...read more.
5 Jean Grey Jean Grey Jean Grey, or Jean Grey-Summers, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.
6 The Waynes

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

9 Jor-El and Lara
10 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.

13 Jason Todd

I still feel the pain I went through every single day. Why Batman, I forgive you for not saving me but why is The Joker not dead? - JasonTodd

Like he was trying to save his mum people and then was brutally, painfully and slowing killed by the joker with a crowbar

How was this sad? The reason Jason Todd died was because the readers voted to kill him.

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

14 Sue Dibny

Sue represents to me a very real person who lived in a fantastical world, and in spite of her lack of powers left such a visible impact on the world around her. 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. I mean, this seemingly average woman was so well-respected among the superhero community that she was considered on the level of heroes such as Superman or Wonder Woman. That is just incredible.

Her funeral speaks of the gaping hole left in her absence, and the reactions of everyone around is even more saddening. Seeing Ralph break down like he did left a lump in my throat, a heavy heart, and misty eyes, which is a very rare thing in my case as death is such a common occurrence in comic ...more
