I'll assume we have all felt a jolt of loss when a favorite TV, movie or book character dies. When I watched the death of the Incredible Hulk TV movie after years of reading the comics and watch the TV show I was impacted. Funny even today it just feels wrong. When Hercule Poirot died/suicide I felt a similar jolt that has lasted years.
Wolverine's, Iron man's and Black Widow's death in the movies made millions cry. Captain Miller (Tom Hanks), Maximus (Russell Crowe) and many others.
Death, especially for a cause or the saving of others makes for a great ending that lasts. The feelings are real, sometimes even grief.
