Netflix's corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe tends to be much darker and drearier than what we see in Marvel Studios' films. It's a world where death lurks around every corner. Whether hero or villain, it seems like every character in these shows is haunted by death in some way. Either that, or they eventually die themselves.
