Thanks for replying, Mr. Marz,
However, sir, with all due respect, an equally poignant story about the triumph of the spirit could be told in bringing him back, as there have been many advances made since 1982 and some of these real life heros afflicted with this killer, are surviving now. Does that make it a cure? No. However, his return could really be something special, a great story, something we haven't seen in a long time.
Now that doesn't mean the story would be about that directly, but it doesn't negate the poignance of the first story. There's a poignant statement in itself in bringing him back to comics. Will you please consider this, the message?
There is a message here. You know, like "don't give up" or something but like I dunno, you take it from there.
Or at the very least, using him in some capacity, even exploring your own brilliant plotline.
I've lost some people very close to me in real life, including what I believe is the most underrated fictional superhero in the history of comics, across the board. Especially, with the success of last year's miniseries, the appeal of the character still somehow remains relevant.
I just believe there's a story here to be told that would be indirectly inspiriational and poignant, without coming across cliche' or contrived. Seeing how this particular character is singled out when others whose deaths were just as poignant are brought back just seems unfair. There's a new generation out there, sir.
Would you at least be open minded to considering the possibilities therein of such a story?
In Silver Surfer #63, you brilliantly left some plotholes open to pursue his fighting back to our world, or at least exploring this kind of limbo world, and that combined with the fact that his etheral form was seperated from his body before the point of bodily death in Death of Captain Marvel, well, I just believe a very important statement can be made here.
No matter what it is that brings us down, we can come back if we fight and believe, something like that, but it's done in a way that's not contrived.
This character seems to have an undying interest from 'enough' people that it would make more sense and poignance storywise to bring him back, rather than just copying him again and again.
As a struggling creative mind and writer myself, I at least know these types of opportunities don't come around often.
The Skeletons were awesome.
Please respond to my points and please be open minded to the thought, it has been long enough, it would not be negating the poignance of the death story, it would only be building off of it and making a new story, one that could turn comics on it's ear again.
Thanks for your time sir, and I am looking forward to your response...Can you help? Will you consider it? Can we count on you to consider it?
There's a story here that needs to be told. I dunno, call it a message, something, a chance to really make a statement with the character. In today's world, that's really saying something, sir.
Thanks for listening, and I hope my points got across, I know you're probably busy, all we are asking for is a fair chance.
Make Mine Mar-Vell!
