Yeah, I know, and I'll happily accept that argument every time
Writer N+1 decides he doesn't like something that Writer N had Doc
Doom do, but Arcade's such a putz that I want him really truly dead.
And really, he's low-level enough that Marvel could do it without
taking any real hit to their storytelling landscape, and they _have_
Real Deaded minor villains before and even kept some of them dead.
