    And what was so bad about Jean's second death? We need new ideas and new characters. Not every death is done for shock value. In the case of Elektra, it was supposed to be a finite story. And what did Kraven's resurrection bring, or the resurrection of Trask, etc?

I don't claim to want everyone to return or claim that I know how everyone should return. However...

I truly believe Peter would be a better hero if Ben were alive and May were not. Vol 1 #46 is one of my favourite What Ifs.

Gwen Stacy? I don't know. If it could possibly get rid of "Sins Past" I'd be all for it.

Jean's second death was done for shock and to push the Emma Agenda. However, almost immediately, we start getting this transformation of Emma into a Jean with bleachjob... except she's still a hooker with a heart. So, we're left with a pale immitation and one less character.

Just because there have been weak resurrections does not mean there shouldn't be any. Good stories can still be told with Kraven.

Good stories could still be told with Trask. I mean, Trask's whole point was that he ultimately realizes Sentinels are stupid. If he were back and not being mind-controlled by a Sentinel, he could have a wonderful redemption story.

City of Heroes is BACK!
