Let me tell you a story...
I'm sure many of you are familiar with Banksy. If not he is a famous graffiti artist with many of his works depicting anti capitalist messages. Ironically his work is sold in auctions for incredibly large amounts of money. So Banksy puts a mechanism in one of the paintings going up for sale so that it becomes shredded. But this only made the price go up. The moral is that any form of art whether it be a painting or a book will be interpreted by the reader/viewer. But this does not mean that the author loses the right to express there own message. They just need to understand that people are going to take away their own messages regardless of the author's feelings. Just look at the Bible. There are so many split offs of the christian faith but it's still the same book there all reading(give or take a few books)

I don’t believe in Death of the Author because it ignores what the person who made the media wants in favor of what you want; using Death of the Author I could easily say Thor is abstract level because he KO’d the Phoenix Force and only lost to the hosts because he was holding back.

It sometimes can apply but some statements from creators of the entire verse or some statements powerful in general that actually contradict feats can't be overriden by these types of things.

Here's more of it:Roland Barthes's famous essay "The Death of the Author" (1967) is a meditation on the rules of author and reader as mediated by the text. Barthes's essential argument is that the author has no sovereignty over his own words (or images, sounds, etc.) that belong to the reader who interprets them. When we encounter a literary text, says Barthes, we need not ask ourselves what the author intended in his words but what the words themselves actually say. Text employ symbols which are deciphered by readers, and since function of the text is to be read, the author and process of writing is irrelevant.

Here's the summary "The death of the author" notion means that meaning is not something retrieved or discovered, having been there all the while, but rather something spontaneously generated in the process of reading a text, which is an active rather than passive action. Barthes does not intend to suggest that the death of the author lets any reader read any text any way he or she like (though others aside from Barthes perused this line of thought). What Barthes is suggesting is that reading always involves at least a little bit of writing or rewriting of the text's meaning.
Barthes's "The Death of the Author" is an attack on traditional literary criticism that focused too much on trying to retrace the author's intentions and original meaning in mind. Instead Barthes asks us to adopt a more text oriented approach that focuses on the interaction of the reader, not the writer, with it. This means that the text is much more open to interpretation, much more fluid in its meaning than previously thought.
