My thought has also, generally, been that "died from the shock of the fall" was pretty unlikely. (And, even if theoretically possible, still quite a strain in the Marvel Universe where people are saved from 70-story falls all the time.)

But your input on this point is really good and thoughtful. Just wanted to say nice work.
