What ifs! What if you could kill one superhero?

Obviously I don’t mean in real life. But if you had the power of publishing to greenlight the storyline death of any one superhero, which would it be? Would you pick a superhero that’s too popular for his/her own good? Or one that you just personally don’t like? Would you like to see them go down in a big throwdown fight to the finish, or do you just want them gone whichever way possible? Of course, one thing that’s usually inevitable when it comes to superhero deaths is that they never stay dead. Would you like to see that changed in your case? I think practically every major superhero has died at one point in time, most notably Superman. But Spider-Man, Captain America, Green Lantern, Batman have all died at one point in time. If a famous comic book character dies, should they stay dead? Does it count if someone else takes up their mantle? Often times a death raises the popularity of a character rather than ending it. Personally, I think Wolverine is a good choice to die. It’s a tough one to do though, since the X-Men timeline basically has his lifespan extended from the revolutionary war on through two generations of mutants or more in the future. He’s a great character, but I think it would be good for him to go away for a long while, a victim of his own popularity. What say you? Leave your answer in the comments! Until next time, this has been Bubbawheat for Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights.

What ifs! What if you could pair up any two superheroes?

Crossover event, superpowered team up, whatever you want to call it, it’s usually an interesting thing to see two superheroes who normally would never exist next to each other suddenly team up to battle a common foe. Do you choose two heroes who are polar opposites to see how difficult it would be for them to work together like say Lobo and Captain America, or would you pick a more natural pairing that would compliment each other nicely like maybe Mr. Fantastic and Plastic Man. Personally, I think there could be a lot of fun interaction between Hellboy and Spider-Man, that would be a really odd team-up but could make for some very unique situations. So who do you think would make a good match? Anything is fair game, DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, from movies or only in comics, and anything in between.

What Ifs! If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

Welcome to a new series here at Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights called What Ifs! One great discussion involved whentalking about superheroes is the big “what if” question. So I decided to take the question out to you readers and find out what your thoughts are.
