Forget the grim reaper - when it comes to the living embodiment of death in comic books, the depiction is sometimes a bit more attractive than a skeleton wearing a cloak. I guess it only makes sense to soften the image of death in comics, as it is not nearly as final a state of being that it is on the real world. If you are a comic character who passes on, usually you just have to bide your time until you are resurrected in one manner or another. In the meantime, you get to hang out with a cute goth chick or a leather clad temptress - doesn't sound so bad to me.
