Another teaser of a resurrection today from Marvel!
Call it the Lazarus effect! Call it a character from the Ppider-verse — Uncle Ben? Ultimate Peter Parker? Toby Maguire’s career? Your guess is as good as mine. The most likely candidate, however is still Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben Parker, a character who has stubbornly resisted resurrection through 50 years of Marvel history. There have been dreams, hoaxes, imaginary stories, alternate universe but not the “real” Uncle Ben…whatever that means.
What do you think? Is it time to break Marvel’s ultimate taboo? One thing that isn’t a Marvel taboo…tweaking DC. The curtain on this promo seems to be a call-out to DC’s newly announced Rebirth. When Springtime hits, people will be rebirthing and resurrecting all over the comics universe.
