While reading Van Lente's (Marvel Zombies) interviews on this up coming series, I thought to myself (as any Captain Marvel fan would at this point after being whored out and lied to for so long), here we go again, cashing in on us, but tell me, from a true Mar-Vell fan point of view and seeing the potential of a story bringing the character back more than just because we want him back. I did find some things promising, but I don't know if I am being too optimistic.
(I'm not saying Van Lente hinted at bringing him back, I am making my own observation and asking because it would be TOO obvious to keep him back this time as they have done this in the past every time a Mar-Vell thing starts to garner attention...I realize this may be a bit much, but I'm asking because we have been lied to as a loyal Marvel reader and just want an outside objective point of view who is at least open to the idea, to tell me if we are getting our hopes up again.)
For example, in the interview, Van Lente mentions CM as being different from the others in the lineup in that he died honorably whereas the others did not and that Mar-Vell is seren about it (Wha? What makes dying in a bed more honorable than not? All respect to loved ones lost even my own, but does it matter HOW we go? We all go these are just shells... )....Am I reading into this too much to consider it a possibility that CM finds that his serenity is undeserved?
I mean he is "one with the universe", maybe he realizes that he's become something bigger, and when he takes a look around at what's going on in the MU and the world at large, he realizes it needs him more than ever.
Like perhaps, he realizes he has unfinished business? (Keep in mind these are my questions, not saying Van Lente is saying that, I am trying to read into it deliberately, but not so much as a fan, moreso as "they've already done this"...is this a polite way of "Good try, kids, but we're not doing it no matter how much you want- yadda yadda yadda" condascending...etc)
Is this another joke or do you think this could be it?
I mean that is a lot of cover appearances in what the last 3 years?
Why don't they just do it?
It may not be how I would do it (which I have a story but I don't work there so it doesn't matter) but I've always maintained that it isn't so much how, it's what they do when he gets here.
Any other discussion on this book I'll gladly have but I will start here.
I never had a problem with Swordsman. Vision.
You know, like him or not, you gotta admit that's pretty marketable for a "dead" guy.
How many covers has this guy been on in the last couple years? How many action figures? Isn't he slated to be in a kids cartoon show this or next year?
Anyway, during the Chaos War, apparently there is a foe that only the "dead" avengers can fight, is this just another one off appearance or due to Mar-Vell's death being different, is there hope that we might be dismissing this as more passification to the Revolution or whatever you want to call it?
In other words, is there hope Mar-Vell slips through here...given that there is another Mar-Vell right now in Thanos Imperative, and aren't these events linked?
Here's another one...
