  1. Gwen Stacy
    Original Jean Grey death on the moon
    Karen Page
    Original Captain Marvel
    Captain America
    Fantomex in X-Force
    Paige Guthery in Generation X AoA series
    Illyana to the Legacy Virus in Uncanny X-Men
    Jane Foster in latest issue of Thor

  2. I actually like Gwen Stacy’s death because it incorporates real life logic into it. Superheros that randomly catch people would just slice them in pieces or break their bones because of the sudden impact at such a rapid decent. This death actually followed rules and made sense.

  3. the uncanny xmen 303 death of illyana rasputin aka magik was sadder imo that quite a few on the list……agree with the no 1 choice tho….elektra and jean grey could have challenged for no 1 if they both stayed dead perhaps.
