    When guessing which characters will come back, you have to look at alot of factors. Was the death important/memorable? Is the character easily replaceable? Was the character popular? Did the character fill some unique niche? How difficult would a resurrection be? etc.

    Kitty, Jean, and Rodgers are all coming back.

    But I'd go further and list characters I think havea good chance of coming back.

    Genis - The only guy with the Captain Marvel name who had any kind of success. Death was lame. Character was popular. Resurrection would be easy.

I think Marvel's planning on letting Noh-Var run with the name for a while. It would be easy to bring Genis back though.

    Namorita - Some popularity, especially as part of the New Warriors. Death was lame. Would be easy to resurrect.

I'd like to see her back if for no other reason than to see the Sub-Mariner family finally united - Namor, Namora, and Namorita.

    Ben Reilly - Alot of popularity, and his return is supposedly the most asked question at cons. I think we can all agree that putting Scarlet Spider would create a lot of interest in ASM right now.

    Changeling - Nobody knew he was at his death. AOA showed us what the character could be like, along with his stint on Exiles. No good idea goes undeveloped forever. Resurrection would be somewhat easy due to the nature of his powers. The only problem would be that the X-Men are already crowded.

    I don't see Scott Lang coming back. His death was somewhat important, and is reflected by his daughter all the time. Pym can serve as a father figure to the character if need be. We all ready have another Ant-Man, maybe even a better one.

Trying to put aside my preference for Lang over O'Grady, I think that still remains to be seen.

    Jack of Hearts might come back. Perez doesn't care about the character, and if he did come back to Marvel, he isn't going to do a Jack of Hearts title. But cosmic resurrections are real easy to do.
