Why Don’t Superheroes Stay Dead?

Question of the Week #195

Of all the people close to you, whose death would you find most disturbing? I really hope it's not a cop out to say my mother.

Question of the Week #134

Would it disturb you much if, upon your death, your body were simply thrown into the woods and left to rot? Why? Well... I'll admit, the thought is slightly disturbing. But, if I'm being honest, it doesn't really matter all that much to me. If I'm dead, I'm dead. What happens to my body doesn't … Continue reading Question of the Week #134

Have you ever considered suicide? What is so important to you that without it life would not be worth living? No. I have never considered suicide.
