For a character that’s been dead since 1973 and outside of some clone shenanigans has never been resurrected, Gwen Stacy sure is popular these days. Probably much to known hater Tom Kelly’s chagrin, Gwen just launched a second title that she is headlining. After the break, a brief history of Gwen and a look (with possible spoilers) at Unbelievable Gwenpool #1.
The latest issue of the Amazing
Iron Man Spider-Man hit store shelves (for Jenny) and digitally for everyone else today. (How many of you guys still read the majority of your books that are made from dead trees?) Let’s take a look at it, and the post-Secret Wars Spider-Man in general after the break. Careful, this way be spoilers.
I thought I saw last week that Marvel’s “Dead No More” teaser was in relation to the return of Steve Rogers as Captain America. Which made no sense, so I’m glad that whatever I thought I saw was wrong.
Marvel has released a new teaser that you can see above and it is very clear that we are looking for something in the Spider-Man camp of titles. But who? Some speculation after the cut.
A day after making headlines that there would be a major death in Civil War II that was essentially a marketing ploy, Marvel is proving their point by teasing that someone would soon be brought back from the dead.
So, who could it be? The first one that comes to mind is Wolverine. But with an All-New Wolverine only launched two months ago and Old Man Logan now kicking around the Marvel U, that seems unnecessary. Professor X has a habit of routinely coming back from the dead. As does Jean Grey, though there is a time displaced version of Jean currently around. Possibly Namor, but seems a lot of hype for someone who most might not even realize is dead. There is a lot of speculation online about it possibly being Spider-Man’s Uncle Ben or Original Recipe Gwen Stacy…but does anyone want that?
If you need more fuel for speculation, Marvel’s website has a list of deceased characters, but I don’t know how up to date it is.
This could also be an elaborate headfake. And not as straighforward as it seems. Maybe Deadpool is changing his name to Lifepool. Or StartwritingmysequelPool. Or some other wink and nod situation that Marvel will tease us with for awhile.
Ryan thinks it would be hilarious if whoever they bring back is the one that gets killed in Civil War II.
And these days it takes no time for parodies to appear online. See what I mean after the break.
