* One ''HeyArnold'' episode has everyone expressing grief after Dino Spumoni dies...except his former partner, who expresses that he's glad he's dead. Turned out Dino faked his death.

* After death of ComicBook/TheSentry he got entire one-shot dedicated topeople talking how fantastic, wonderfull person he was, even through he would spent last year as a [[ComicBook/DarkReign pawn of Norman Osborn]] antagonizing most of the heroes right and left, and directly prior to his death gave up completely to his SuperpoweredEvilSide, destroyed Asgard, killed Ares (who just pulled HeelFaceTurn) and almost murdered them all. Yet closest we get to anybody saying anything bad about him is Ben Grimm admitting he hated Bob...because Bob was better man than him. Made worse when Rogue reveals she lost her virginity too Sentry. If you keep eye on continuity (Sentry was said to have gotten married around the time Reed Richard and Sue Storm did, Rogue showed up much later) it means he cheated on his wife with her. After that Mr. Fantastic saying he was the greatest of them all seems jarring.
