It's a blog hosting site with elements of social networking. Theoretically it can be used for any kind of writing, but it's mainly used for hysterical and annoying bi-sexual teenagers freaking out about how upset/offended a comic/cartoon/tv show/movie/whatever has made them and posting gifs about it.

That and porn.

It's hilarious.

So Rich Johnston just posted an article that was just reposting hysterical Tumblr reactions to Journey Into Mystery #645.

I wasn't being serious, it was based on Rich ripping off the story about Young Justice last week.

I was pretty sure none of us were being serious! I even used an emoticon.

Anyway, apparently there's enough pathetic mewling on TUMBLR to go around.

Well, cosplay does it more, but I bet most of the people who freak out like this on Tumblr are cosplayers.

Im not "shocked" that people are offended by the concept, only annoyed. Characters die in literature all the time, characters we grow to like. Having Romeo and Juliet die at the end of the story doesn't make it "terrible" or "offensive", its just that social networking and tumblr has elevated "fandom" into weird, juvenile, cultish groups who obsess over characters so much that when they die, it becomes a huge ordeal.

that was one play, not a serial and completely different and it was called a tragedy for a reason

when Doyle killed of Sherlock Holmes the reason he brought him back was pressure from the fans. Letters to him, his publishers, etc

and you're right, having then die didn't make the play terrible
the play does that all on its own
