    That was Druid, who certainly deserves to be mentioned on the conversation.

    Guess Skurge technically wasn't a complete superhero or villain, but his (first and iconic) death and last stand is one of the most poignant to me. More triumphant than depressing, but it's kinda tragic considering his character and what led up to that moment.

    Oh, the death of Bill/William Cobb III as well

    Banner's death was pretty darn depressing.

    He's cured of being The Hulk and then he gets an unceremonious arrow through the head.

    Magik.

    She's kidnapped as a small child, tortured, has her soul ripped out and toyed with, made into a living weapon. She comes back a broken human being, knowing that she's mostly evil because of what someone else did to her and that she has to maintain 100% control at all times or else she'll cause the destruction of the world and the deaths of everyone she loves. Her parents reject her and all the X-Men and New Mutants are terrified of her. She finds a way to erase her own existence to save her younger self from having been kidnapped in the first place, and it looks like she'll get a happy ending after all, with her being taken back to her parents.

    Then her parents are killed and as soon as she is brought back to live with the X-Men she contracts the Legacy virus and dies horribly at the age of 6-7. No happy endings allowed in comics.

    Illyana's death may be the saddest X-Men death I read. Doug is up there as well. Piotr and Illyana's parents getting killed just pissed me off due to the pointlessness of it all.

    Freedom Ring. Tone deaf and mean-spirited, both in-story and on the part of Quesada and Kirkman

    Mettle.
    He got a perfect happy end in Avengers Academy.
    Then Arcade kidnapped him and his girlfriend Hazmat, at christmas eve, and killed him in the first issue of Avengers Arena.
    By "killed him", I mean he made him explode, Dr Manhattan way.
    And later he used his skin to create a Mettle LMD in order to fool Pym and Tigra, making them believe that their proteges were safe.
    And after having slaughtered many teen super heroes, Arcade is back to being a joke villain, like nothing happened. The super heroes are not even hunting him to make him pay.

    Juston Seyfert
    He spent years in limbo after Christos Gage, who was a fan of the Sentinel series, brought him back in Avengers Academy.
    As soon as Avengers Academy was cancelled, Dennis Hopeless decided to "use" him in Avengers Arena.
    His Sentinel pal got hacked, then destroyed. Juston got paralysed.
    And then one of the "players" broke his neck. He died afraid, crying, and probably shitting his pants.
    Moral of the story: Marvel writers, be careful when you bring back one of your faves from limbo. You are exposing them to this kind of sadistic shit.
    Avengers Arena was shock-value garbage. The way Avengers Undercover tanked was a pretty good case that folks weren't showing up for Hopeless' ability to craft a story. I still think Kyle and Yost killing off half the Xavier's student body was in very poor taste, but at least they managed to get some good character work out of it.

    Much undervalued and dismissed imo by the publisher

    thought he had a lot of potential like a lot of those characters from academy

    where are they now?
    I don't think they've been seen since the Inhumanity tie-ins.

    Ugh. I hate this instance specifically and the trend in general of killing off established heroes to prop up a writer's new character/villain/romance. Nine times out of ten, the new character vanishes along with the writer, and we've lost an established piece of the narrative for no good reason. See also: Diamond Lil - killed off so that her husband, Madison Jeffries, could fuck a toaster. This new and thrilling development was turfed off-screen as soon as the next writer made Danger part of a team, and Lil was still dead.

Really dark, depressing stuff. This also made me think of White Tiger meeting his end around the same time also under less than heroic circumstance. What are some other examples of heroes dying tragically in fairly mundane ways (by comic standards).
    The Death of Captain Marvel. Dying of cancer; one of the best books ever done by Marvel.
