Pandering to emos, Marvel? Where will it end?

The shame of it is that with the SAME character arc, other than the disgusting masochistic ending of course, they could have catapulted the former Speedball into a new identity which was serious and heroic, without the need for this kind of exploitive bullshit. There was nothing inherently wrong in having him be a foolish young hero, wised up by being made into an example, and then stabbed to near death, only to come back as a different kind of hero. It just didn't have to be as a perverse blood dripping whipping boy.
