9/11 on the comic book world? I wouldn't compare a comic character's death to a real-life tragedy.
I didn't read comics back in 1993 but, I said to myself (and a comic-loving friend) "Why the Hell would they want to kill off an American hero?!"
I have a Trade Paperback of that story. I never have finished reading it, even after having it for several years. I know Superman comes back from the dead but, the thought of him dying is just too damn much...
kill off American heroes. Period.
