Goodwill said:Are you saying that they do this to make money rather than the story, no matter what audience they try and target? You're absolutely right.
Also, are you open to having Beast back?

If they kill boring characters whenever they get boring, they never get re-invented and made interesting
at the rate characters can get boring in a series with frequent writer changes, you'd be killing characters off too often. Although i've been in favour of more death in the UU (it sounds bad that way doesn't it?) there is a line between getting rid of characters at a realistic rate and killing them so often it robs them of emphasis.
I think its too challenging to find the balance between the rate of deaths where they still have meaning but happen with realistic frequency, especially if you have to kill of the boring characters
But, boring as she may frequently be, i'd rather keep Jean alive, just to prevent a slide into endless "now-she's-dead-now-she's-not" cycle
