    I think it was obvious Nico, Chase, X-23 and Darkhawk were pretty safe bets to survive the story.

    I mean the advance preview for Nico's ressurection in issue 12 came out before even issue 11 was out iirc :P

    Exiles team-up? Iron Lad is part of that new team.

    I just didn't like the way she treated Chase (no matter how is "yo" speech was). The way she acted after getting her ripped off might've been justified but how she acted after Hazmat burned the fruit tree rubbed me the wrong way.

    I can only imagine how on edge I would've been reading this as it was released. The only I probably would've thought was safe was X-23.

    Naw I'm kinda with Captain M on Arena's survivors chances. Not so much on Darkhawk but I was pretty certain Nick & Chase were safe. They were characters from this super-popular & critically praised series & it was something that greatly left an impact on the Marvel Universe no way they were going to be axed that easy. Hell as soon as Nico died I basically called she be back in 2 issues.

    Sure that would be awesome too. I kinda want a runaway based on the SW group that we had.

    Still ticked that they offed mostly Avengers cast. It was a bad idea in the first place. Chase with the dawkhawk stone was odd.

    ....Much odder than most would realized; for not did Chase ended up becoming a "Darkhawk"(Raptor actually), but so did Cammi {during the AVENGERS ARENA Series, of course}.

    The thing I didn't like about Chase and Nico in Arena was their willingness to kill development arc. Like I said, I get what Hopeless was going for, it's kill or be killed yada yada, but for the established characters involved it was just off-putting. Not the killing people in itself, but fellow teens who you've been working together with. I personally just did not like it at all.

    Not like it lasted that long nor they enjoyed it. It was a realistic response. They only did it once they realized time was up.

    Nico came to that point towards the end yeah, but IIRC Chase approached her about the topic much earlier on. I may be wrong though, it's been a while since I read it. And yeah of course it was realistic, it's what the series was written for. It just left a bad taste in my mouth. Perhaps it was the execution of it; Nico suddenly grabbing Cullen and zipping away to try to kill him. There didn't seem to be much remorse there. That was my take of it anyhow.

    Also just finished Arena, and I definitely found Hopeless kind of missed the point on Nico specifically. I didn't notice too much OOC in Chase. Definitely most ridiculous in my opinion was the fact that Nico didn't believe Chase when he said he didn't shoot Reptil.

    I don't even know why Darkhawk is alive now, tbh. He still is a character that Marvel could easily kill... off panel, even. There wasn't any reason for him to survive Arena. And at the time, it really didn't seem like Marvel was very committed to Runaways. Sure, we knew by #11, but not while the series was coming out.
