Is anyone here genuinely excited about the concept of Heroes In Crisis? I was until I heard they were starting it off by killing characters. Every writer seems to think they have to kill or maim some characters to make the story mean something. It seems like every issue anymore is about shock value rather than just good stories… agree or disagree?
No one said the characters were dead. Supes said “confirmed.” That could mean something else.
I was excited when I thought the concept was showing heroes recovering from traumatic events. Then they started things off by apparently killing a bunch of people for, as you said, shock value.
I’m still excited to see where King takes this. If one is not happy with the way the story looks after the 1st issue then just wait for the TPB. Dont cheat yourself, all together, out of what could be a great story.
