"Him-Paled", Way to Die #237, is the third death to be featured in "Death, The New Black", which aired on July 18, 2011.


A pervert named Duncan uses his camera phone to get upskirt photos of women. While standing behind a woman (who is wearing a skirt with no underwear) at a streetside coffee vendor, the woman freaks out, and the construction worker standing next to her goes to beat up the pervert verbally. Meanwhile, another construction worker 8 stories up trips over a sandbag and lets go of a reinforcement bar, which falls from the sky and impales the pervert from his shoulder through his side, impaling his heart, killing him instantly and sending him to Hell.
