Heartwarming: Death Jr.
  • The depiction of Death across the two graphic novels/comic book series; He's slightly Pratchett-esque in his characterisation, but otherwise veers between a rather terrifying, completely straight version of the Grim Reaper, and a domestic dim-bulb happily living in the suburbs with his wife and son. For all his dimness, however - including interpreting his wife's need to experiment with her career as wanting to experiment in the bedroom - he's an incredibly loving father and husband. Once aware of his wife's need to get out of the house and tackle a new career, the epilogue of the second series sees him offer her the newly free post of Chief Administrative Officer. Prior to this, he'd given the position to ex-Horseman of the Apocalypse, Bureaucracy, after he'd left the others to pursue a different career - purely out of the goodness of his heart.
