It seems that all everyone wants to know about Infinity War is just who exactly is going to kick the bucket during its runtime. So I decided to gather up all the main Avengers – plus some new additions with this movie – and tally up just how many times they’ve each died. As a result, we should be able to figure out which Avenger will be the greatest Reaper magnet.
All death stats were curated from Comicvine.gamespot.com, which keeps track of this sort of thing.
One Death: Amazing Spider-Man #700
Huh. Really? I could have sworn there were more of these.
Like, I did a lot of digging, but I could only find this single canonical example of 616 Spider-Man’s death, in which ultimate Peter kicked the bucket in a huge event comic. Amazing Spider-Man #700 is the only real example I could find of Spidey being killed off for real. And even then, his body still lived on.
After enduring years of serious brain damage, Doctor Octopus decided to enact his final plan, and actually succeeded in swapping his brain into Spider-Man’s body. Then Ock’s body finally gave out before Peter could reverse the process, and he died. However, fragments of Peter’s mind were still active, and he was eventually rebooted after spending some time Superior Spider-Man-ing.
Hey, according to these metrics, it doesn’t look like Peter’s gonna be dying. And these metrics cannot lie.
