So, it’s official! The original AMAZING, friendly neighborhood, ever-lovin’ Spider-Man will be back in April.
Some fans are elated to see Peter Parker back in control of his body, and some prefer the darker, edgier Superior Spider-Man. It doesn’t really matter which Spidey floats your boat, it’s HOW they will resurrect Pete that really matters doesn’t it?
Fans are sort of tired of the “comic book death” scenario...basically because it’s so predictable. I mean, it’s usually the same old story: hero dies, hero is temporarily replaced, hero somehow comes back.
Wash, rinse, repeat. It’s how it is ALWAYS done.
Sometimes though, a superhero or even a villain, is brought back and their triumphant return is sensible, entertaining and well, just plain bad-assed.
In celebration of Pete’s AMAZING return, I will take a look at examples of comic book resurrections that were done right, and of course the ones that were just, let’s say...not all that necessary.
