This is why I'm a Batman fan.
Look at Digimon's first season for example (I know, odd reference), that show had the parents involved and not in a dopey ignorant way. They connected with their kids and encouraged them to try to save the world. So why is there a disconnect where they only focus on the kids and pretend the parents don't matter?
The fact that people think kids are expendable heroes just makes me believe that writers aren't trying hard enough to make people care for them. They should make the teenage heroes' deaths if not more painful than most of the adult deaths.
We didn't get to see Mattie Franklin's foster dad's reaction after she was killed by Spider Man's foes, despite the guy being a major Spidey supporting character.
So it's clear that nobodies like Wiccan or Mettle's parents have no voice.
One of the few times we got a parent reaction was when Wallflower's mother slaped the poor Prodigy after her daughter was killed.
Me: Please Marvel, give some spotlight to your 21th century creations instead of killing them every month.
Marvel: Avengers Arena, lol!
Classy as always, Marvel.
and, for the record, Scott did not die in the A-Next Universe. Cassie did not die. she grew up to be a scientist, businesswoman, independent hero, and leader of the Avengers. Peggy was nowhere to be found, in that timestream.
