Diversity broadens the genre's reach, encourages respect and understanding of people's differences, and gives minority audiences more chances to see themselves in fiction, and those are all great things. Because of this, we've come up with a new way to look at diversity in superhero comics - particularly team books. We call it the Harvey/Renee Index.

Death Panels: Does Mortality Matter in Superhero Comics?

Last week's Uncanny Avengers, by Rick Remender and Steve McNiven, killed off a whole bunch of characters. The last issue of Avengers Arena, by Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker, came out the same day with that book's final death tally. It was a good day for funeral directors in the Marvel universe.

Rick Remender on ‘Uncanny Avengers': ‘It’s Just A Matter Of Making The Most Fun Comic Book In The World’ [NYCC 2012]


Even with only one issue released so far, Uncanny Avengers has become one of the comics I'm looking forward to the most. The combination of Marvel's two most well-known -- and profitable -- franchises may have seemed like a no-brainer, but writer Rick Remender came out swinging with a first issue that just went for it, and ended up being one of the most fun times I've had reading comics in quite a while...
