You go out in a fiery blaze.
Your death was such a bummer... but so, so EPIC. You were a fighter, and there was no way that you were going to leave sad, pale, identifiable remains behind. You took a car, a helicopter, a bomb, ANYTHING that would go "boom" and went with it. Your last words were likely an awesome catch phrase that generations will quote on their Facebook pages for years to come.
Even got my catch phrase: "You ready?"
