That was a rather horrible way for her to die.

There's not really any good way to die.

Well, dying in one's sleep doesn't seem too bad, but you're right.

That horrifies me, personally. Going to sleep, and just... ceasing to be? Nightmare fuel. :)

Perhaps burning her to death was a subtle nod to shoving women into refrigerators. They're doing the opposite of that!

Do they ever address why he doesn't just adopt another secret identity?

Another skin-covering one? Then the first time it gets damaged, or even just recognizes his powers and voice, same situation.. and it'd still be hiding (I mean, I can't see him going "I'm a *white guy* with the same powers as Blue Marvel!).

If he's going to go out, it kinda has to be him.

He was active when he wasn't Blue Marvel, just as a scientist explorer. He was just Dr. Adam Brashear.

There's something that really confused me here. How old was Candace supposed to be?

Roughly the same age as Adam. She looks older in the panel where she's introduced, but the art never quite reflects the idea that she's a 60-something woman with two kids in college.

Al Ewing later introduced the idea that Candace may have benefited from Adam's powers, as she seemed to be at least as slow to age as he was.

Thats a very DC idea.

Pretty fitting for a Superman imitation, though.

Oh sure! I like the idea that Blue Marvel is some sort of DC superhero who somehow got born in the wrong universe.

You'd think that slow aging would compromise his secret identity. Wouldn't folks notice that a retirement-age couple looks like they're in their 30s?

It's the Marvel Universe. They probably just think they're aliens. Or robots. Or robot aliens.

They probably thought he aged gracefully.

I enjoyed the series up to this point, but the violence of the wife's death felt unnecessarily gratuitous. Gore porn.
