"Odds Are You're Dead", Way to Die #594, is the fifth death to be featured in "Grave Errors", which aired on March 2, 2011.


Two loan sharks, Tony and Nick, who both didn't feel like waiting, have no choice but to confront Charles a scissor lift operator over a debt. When Charles refuses to come down, Tony decides to get him down by cutting the hydraulic line to the scissor lift. The lift comes crashing down on Tony and decapitates him.

"And within seconds, Tony's career as a lone shark...was cut short. Hey, he was a lone shark, not a scissor lift operator."
