Marvel fans (specifically Iron Man fans) launched a petition on asking the comic book giant to reconsider the death of their beloved hero. Since its launch, almost 18,000 people have signed in support of Tony Stark’s revival. “He didn’t deserve this and it’s not fair, after everything he’s been through, and done for everyone, he deserves to live and see his daughter grow up,” the petition reads.

The initiative to bring back the billionaire hero highlights his importance to fans, as his character became a staple in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “He’s so important. He saved our lives and it’s our turn to save him,” the web page continues. “We love him so much. We love him 3000. Without him, now, we are totally lost. For many people, he was their reason to live and hold on in life.”
