How the hell is Apex The Scrappy and a Creator's Pet if She has Rooting for the Empire and is an Ensemble Darkhorse?

That entry wasn't added by me, maybe I should delete it.

Arcade's reasoning for which kids he picked for Murder World really makes him sound like he fits under Too Dumb to Live:

Sure, Chase and Nico might be overlooked, but to say that no one would care or notice about the Avengers Academy kids suddenly going AWOL? And of course, X-23 is Wolverine's legally adopted daughter, and he's one of the biggest Papa Wolves in Marvel.

Issue #14 already explained this, and it's a plausible explanation.

In any case, Too Dumb to Live doesn't even fit what you're describing.

Actually, yes it does. His robot buddy calls him on it. "Suicide by cape".

His reasons are frankly hollow and the issue makes that extremely clear. I say it fits. He's doing something that the series admits is suicidally stupid.

Okay fine, do it. Put it on the main page, leave out any sort of slam on the book.

Awww, where's the fun in that? ;)

The part that Majin Gojira just added to Accentuate the Negative: "Repeatedly stating in letters answers, interviews and twitter responses that Arena is character driven. Detractors counter that most of the established characters are pale echoes of their former selves, and that all the deaths serve the plot more than them. Determining which is which is up to each individual reader" really seems like shoehorning negative opinions into other tropes. Especially the Canon Defilement bit. But that's just me.

Then I'll remove it/alter it. . . when/if I get the chance to.

Edit: Is this an improvement, or does it remain to negative?

That's fine. Thanks for responding so quickly.
