Any character who dies in his first appearance (Leader, Liberators). . . I hate that.
So you're saying....
No characters should ever die?
Even if a character does die, there's no reason not to bring them back. A dead characetr is a wasted character.
To be fair, most of the Liberators were nothing characters in the 616 universe (the only one who was truly wasted was Abomination). So its not like its a huge loss, heck they already have another crimsondynamo running around in the UU, just like they do in the 616 U. Some of characters do work as throwaways. I really like Hurricane's death, that makes like Ultimate Hurrican more interesting than whatever throwaway character Hurricane is in the 616 universe. Plus the Liberators can always be recreated by the people created them, later.
Also I like Gobby's death, that was well handled.
No, but the death should have an impact. Gobby's death was a billion times cooler than Abomination's.
But if you do that too often death becomes a joke. Look at all the Jean Grey jokes.
They'r eonly wasted character because they died completely undeveloped. Green Goblin had a lot of stories and was well-developed. And he should definitely come back. He's too good a character to waste.
And even if a character doesn't come back, their death should start a legacy, if not with a replacement character, then somehow through the series.
Gwen Stacy is an example of a character's death that meant something and whose presence is still felt in the title.
But, like, The Leader dying is a travesty. Now there's no way for him to develop at all.
What about, say, random passerby who die on the street during a heated battle.
Yeah from what I've heard Leader was a great ultimization and I don't think he should have been killed given his potential future. the UU has wasted enough ideas alreadyMe too, except the problem I'm seeing is that some of these Ultimizations are causing previous b-listers to become decided un-b-listy. Leader is a great example.

I would say The Colonel was a complete waste, while Gwen Stacy had a good death. It was shocking and important, but her legacy lives on in the book.
That secret, Illuminati-style group in Ultimates 2, the one that created the Liberators - what ever happened to them? They just disappeared? I would have liked to have seen them in Ultimates 3, maybe with an appearance by Ultimate Masters of Evil (I'm just throwing ideas out)? Who were they, exactly?[/SPOILER]
