I always liked the character of Bill Foster from the days when he was a recurring character in Marvel-Two-In-One. His solo title was short lived, but I had always hoped he would be given another shot once he took on the Giant Man moniker. Unfortunately he was killed off unceremoniously in Marvel's Civil War event. It seems every time there is one of these big events a character I like is killed for shock value, a trend that I am not a fan of. I see lots of potential in characters like Foster, The Wasp, Elongated Man and many others who have been treated like cannon fodder. If the companies don't know what to do with these characters, fine... but I wish they would just let them lie in limbo for a while rather than taking them out of the game completely.
