There's this quote from the game Batman: Arkham Origins in which there's the phrase "She dies" which Ferris says about Mr. Freeze's wife Nora, who's suffering an uncurable disease.
Shouldn't it be something like "She's dying", given that that's what she is, "dying", as in "suffering an uncurable condition and awaiting certain death"? What would such a phrase as "She dies" mean?
Unless you were a phoenix whose gimmick is to keep on dying and reviving, or you're talking about things in general as a matter of fact (as in "People die" or "Male shrews die after mating"), or you're using it in a hypothetical/conditional or future sense (as in "if/until/the day I die"), using the verb die in the present simple when talking about a single individual doesn't seem to make much sense.
