"Wel-Dead", Way to Die #504, is the first death to be featured in "Dead and Deader", which aired on February 15, 2009.


A man named John Cook, who's an adrenaline junkie and uses his obscene gesture finger, who likes being zapped by a taser, which was used by Tess. Then, one day, John Cook connects a welder to his ear piercings to apply electrocution and an adrenaline rush. He turns the voltage on the welder to the max, and the electricity disrupts his natural electical rhythms, causing cardiac arrest (heart attack).

"To anyone who know John Cook, his death came as no shock."
