Immortality Narratives

The four ways humans have generally come up with for being able to live, or at least exist, forever:

  1. Rejuvenation (get younger)
  2. Resurrection (rise from the dead)
  3. Reincarnation (transformed from the dead in another form)
  4. Fame (remembered in history, culture, records, memories of others)

 

Epically fascinating stuff from the Hidden Brain podcast below that also discussed the Mortality Paradox described in yesterday’s post!

When Deadpool Dies, He Can Come Back as Dead Pool

Yup, Marvel is killing off Deadpool… a character with Dead in his name.

But we all know comic book characters don’t die forever, especially not popular ones. So I’m suggesting he comes back with the same name, just with a space in between. Totally different meaning. Can be totally different character.

And his biggest pet peeve will be “don’t call be Pool, fool!”

Mr. T. style, of course. šŸ™‚

Funeral is scheduled for April in Deadpool 250.
