Barry Allen were always coming back.
FYI without Wikipedia I would have responded to that with "WHO THE FUCK IS BARRY ALLEN!?" Of course him being dead since 2 or 3 years before I was born and coming back when I was 20 might have something to do with it.

Spiderman's marriages were always doomed to disappear.
yes, yay for pissing on Spider-Man's character (Becuase nothing says heroic like selling your marriage to Satan just so when your 80 years old aunt eventually dies you don't have to feel guilty about it) just becuase some people want perpetual loser Spider-Man who pines after a chick that is DEAD and not coming back. Stuff like this is why fans should stay the hell a way from actually writing a character.

There's a reason the Earth 2 heroes were basically still wearing the same costumes since the 40s.
Becuase they were largely in a side universe that people didn't care as much about so they pretty much used it to get away with doing stuff the would have the fanboy's screaming bloody murder if it happened in their precious main universe?

And don't even get me started on the current Earth 2. Those costumes will be back to normal in a nanosecond.
Yes, becuase entirely new versions of characters want to dress like the old ones who are probably NEVER coming back.

"Lee's editorial advice to his writers in the early days of Marvel Comics seems more resonant than ever: superheroes should have only the "illusion of change," forever appearing to break new ground but always returning firmly to the status quo."
Which is why for the most part I'm giving less of a shit about the comics versions of the characters as time goes on.
