"Not to put too fine a point on it, but 'Fear Itself' was meant to be a statement about 'death' in comics. It's not real. No one is ever really dead in comics. In comics death is about the resurrection. Characters always come back. That's the story. The story doesn't make the death meaningless. All death in comics is meaningless," Fraction said. "It's fiction. It's going to outlive all of us. It's legend and myth. It's the stories that we're going to tell ourselves for years and years. Hercules will forever have his Twelve Labors whether it's my grandfather reading them to me or me reading them to my son. It's that kind of stuff.

"So 'Fear Itself' was my chance to say my two cents about that," Fraction continued. "This story was never about Thor is dead, but how are we going to bring him back? That's the story. It's not about a meaningful death. What matters is a meaningful resurrection."
