Important comic book moments that will affect the future.

August had some pretty exciting comic book moments. First, Red Hood killed a Joker in Batman: Three Jokers. Maybe not the Joker, but one of the three. In Thor No. 6, Thor killed Galactus in a spectacular way. He later saw a glimpse of his future. It was a grim look at what his end would be.

September was no different as it too had a number of game-changing happenings, so we have follow ups on Thor, Red Hood, and other characters. Moments that will absolutely affect the future of both DC and Marvel Comics.

Some of these may seem like small things, but they are going to have major repercussions on the characters, how they interact with their teammates, and how they fight villains going forward.

Storm wants to live

Comic Book: Giant Size X-Men Storm

In Giant Sized X-Men: Jean Grey and Emma Frost, we found out that Storm was dying. If this was two years ago, we may have been worried. Now, with the mutant resurrection protocols, it didn’t seem like a big deal – especially since you could be brought back to life differently, happier, and without memories you didn’t want. Nonetheless, Storm wanted to fight for her life. She fought, won, and said this as she battled.

"“The true measure of life is living. It isn’t a series of do-overs and restarts… it’s a fight for what you have, what you believe in… it’s fighting for who you are. I am a mutant. I am a Goddess. And I want to live.”"

Why is this important?

The longer mutants are being brought back from the dead, the lesser the value of life is. We’ve already seen Quentin Quire brought back more than a couple of times. While it’s funny in that instance, death is losing its meaning in Marvel Comics. That’s saying a lot considering we know that everyone comes back from the dead. Now, Storm can be an example of how to live. When mutants start taking life for granted, she will tell them how she fought for survival and how good it made her feel to win in spite of the safety net.
