      Was Captain America or Bucky cheapened when Bucky was restored as the Winter Soldier? No. Many good stories came from that.

    Can't say I like anything about the Winter Soldier stuff. And now, he's turned into an unused character.

        has Magneto been cheapened by all his apparent deaths and returns? yes. While there are some good stories that have from it, the character has been cheapened.

      I disagree. He's only gotten better.

          Apocalypse: with all his origins and returns? yeah he's cheapened.

        Eh. He always was cheap.

    But as for Mar-Vell, nothing regarding him will ever break the Internet because Mar-Vell was never, ever anything more than a 3rd rate character. The best thing that ever happened to him or with him was his death. And I like the guy.

I wasn't someone who grew up with Mar-Vell. I think he was dead by the time I got into comics (or died around that time). But eventually I went back and reread his original series and was bored by almost all of it. I loved that first year or so when had the Kree uniform, was using the Walter Lawson identity and was a Kree spy who slowly learned to love earth...but the stuff people like about him like when he was changed by Eon, became a hero, merged with Rick Jones, fought Thanos...that stuff kinda bored the hell out of me. Those last couple years of his solo comic were a real slog to get through.

I don't really get WHY people like him as much as they do or why there is such a heated debate on whether to bring him back or not. He was only just ok.
