I don't know what you mean by "risk". The status quo gets set back to zero almost every time. The dead return to life, the Baxter Building gets rebuilt, Iron Man regains control of his company, etc.

DC and Marvel's universes are essentially static, no dramatic change ever seems to stick. So Steve Rogers is dead, how many people really believe that is going to stick? Heck, didn't Joe Q say early on that "dead is dead"? How quickly did he backpedal from that when writers like Joss Whedon wanted Colossus back?

Either way you slice it, nothing has really changed. They are generally more likely to kill these days, even if it doesn't stick (many times it does).
