Marvel's New "Dead No More" Teaser Has a Spidery Twist
Marvel's New "Dead No More" Teaser Has a Spidery Twist - Two weeks after the initial teaser, Marvel hints the "Dead No More" character will be Spider-Man-related with a new image covered in spider webs.

Okay lemme be quick about this.

Gwen would be the worst case scenario to this, but I SERIOUSLY don’t think that it either will be her or if it is that she will stick around long term (long term meaning beyond 5 years). Why? Because Spider-Gwen renders her mostly redundant.

The only thing to do with her would be make her even MORE like Emma Stone but, with Slott at the helm, I don’t think he is actually going to be so audacious as to undo the Death of Gwen Stacy. Slott picks and chooses which parts of continuity he values but for the stuff up to and including Gwen’s death he tends to be reverential. Unless he’s a bigger troll than we believed, it is unlikely he’d bring Gwen back. Hell he wasn’t even in favour of bringing back Kraven the Hunter.

And it’d be unlikely that he’d ship her and Peter since he wants his own girlfriends to shine.

This means Uncle Ben is the next likely candidate and if so…that wouldn’t be too bad because we KNOW that genie would go back in the bottle sooner or later. It’d just be very redundant because we’ve seen this story more than once.

Potentially this could be Jean DeWolff, but again I don’t think anyone at Marvel cares about her beyond her death storyline. Peter David is also working at Marvel and might have something to say about it.

Doc Ock is unlikely since Spider-Man doesn’t love him.

Kaine is a speculation but he’s clearly not dead in the first place and that wouldn’t grab headlines. Nor would Ben Reilly as much as I’d like that.

Silver Sable is possible due to her prominence in Slott’s run.

I suppose it’d be too much to hope that we’d bring back MC2 Peter and this has nothing to do with Spider-MAN.

However my theory…this has something to do with the guy bringing back the loved ones of Spider-Man villains in ASM currently. Which means either he is offering the real thing due to this event or else that this whole thing is one big trick.

But if this is Spider-MAN and a crossover event and something intended to be a big promotional push then it’s almost guaranteed that this will be Gwen coming back and almost as equally guaranteed that it will not last

TW: Random Shoes/ Out of Time/ Combat

I continue my look at the Doctor Who spin-off for adults, Torchwood!

193: Torchwood: Random Shoes/ Out of Time/ Combat

“Stick with the team. This is Torchwood. It’s going to be okay.”

Format: 3 episodes, 50 minutes long

Writer: Jaquetta May/ Catherine Treganna/ Noel Clarke

Team Torchwood:

  • Captain Jack Harkness
  • Gwen Cooper
  • Owen Harper
  • Toshiko Sato
  • Ianto Jones

Story:

Random Shoes: A hit-and-run victim, obsessed with alien life, realises only one person can solve the mystery of his death: Gwen Cooper.

Out of Time: When a plane from the 1950s lands in modern Cardiff, courtesy of the Rift, the passengers are reoriented by the Torchwood team, who becomes drawn closely to their lives.

Combat: Weevils are being kidnapped from the streets of Cardiff, and Torchwood want to know why. Owen is sent undercover to find out who’s behind it and soon befriends the charismatic Mark Lynch.

What I liked:

  • A well-constructed ‘Jack-lite’ episode
  • Out of Time is a brilliant idea
  • The writer is great at imagining the things people from the 50s would be amazed at today
  • An excellent love story

What I disliked:

  • Neither Gwen or Owen are very likeable in these episodes.

Overall thoughts: Three very good episodes here, all of which are very different from each other. 

Random Shoes is a bit of an oddity really but surely it must be inspired by Love and Monsters. OK, so the lead character is dead here but other than that it is very similar to the first Doctor-lite episode. I like it but I suspect there are plenty who don’t- it does feel a bit too similar to Love and Monsters given the limited time between the two episodes. 

I think Out of Time might be my favorite of all the Torchwood episodes. It’s a neat idea to have people stranded from their time zone and explore how this affects them and the team. All three people are given great storylines and you really feel for them at the end of the episode. I love the way the writer explores the 21st century through their eyes, everything from automatic doors to tea bags.

It also contains within it a great love story, where Owen finally has a proper relationship with a woman. For a few minutes he almost becomes a likeable character. It’s a rare case of Torchwood actually having some proper plot to do along with the sex scenes and they work well for the first time. 

Combat largely deals with Owen’s fall-out after losing Diane. The weevil fight-club is an excellent idea although it takes the team far too long to work out what is going on. We get a lot on the series plot threads here, few of which I feel were very successful. Thank goodness that the whole Gwen/Owen nonsense is over and Gwen’s relationship problems with Rhys plot is poorly handled for the most part, across the whole series.

Next Time: A dramatic finale!

The Fantastic Spider-Man - Tangled

Mary Jane Watson is fine. So what if the Lizard, the same thing that killed her best friend attacked her at her Junior prom? So what if she’s seeing her dead best friend everywhere and she tends to have a good cry here and there? So what if all her friends, especially Gwen’s boyfriend, are avoiding her? So what if her parents are forcing her to see the school guidance counselor who doesn’t believe her when she says she’s perfectly fine? So what if her ex, Flash Thompson, has had no problem moving on from her? So what if the only person who’s asked her if she’s really okay has been that loner Peter Parker? But wait, why did Spider-Man disappear right after Gwen’s death?

Sequel-ish to this video: http://bloodandholocene.tumblr.com/post/111857290483/the-fantastic-spider-man-cast-peter

“I’m not sure how to do this. I don’t know if you can hear me. I’m not a psychic. Maybe what I really wanted to say was I’m sorry. I wish I could have helped you.”
“Go away.”
“You’re going to be late for your appointment with the school counselor, remember?”
“Remember, I told you I was fine.”
“If you’re really fine, what are you doing here? Have you talked to your friends about what happened to you?”
“Yeah. They’re great. Totally supportive.”
“We have to be greater than what we suffer. My wish for you is to become hope. People need that.”

EXCLUSIVE: Marvel Teases Possible Spider-Man Rebirth For Dead No More?

Marvel Comics has passed an exclusive teaser into the ComicBook.com inbox. The second teaser with “Dead No More” gives us a new clue as to just who is coming back to life. It looks like it’ll be someone in the Spider-Man corner of the world, if that spider web can be trusted.

Spider-Man has had many people die in his life, of course, both hero and villain and of course civilian. His career started with the death of his Uncle Ben. It hit a turning point at the death of Gwen Stacy. It was recently reinvigorated when he came back into his own mind and body, leaving one of his greatest foes, Dr. Otto “Doc Ock” Octavius seemingly dead and gone.

So is it one of those three coming back? Is it some combination? The Free Comic Book Day solicitation, which includes a story that serves as a prelude to the “Dead No More” storyline, hints that it may be more than one comeback:

“If you got a chance to bring back someone who died, would you? And how will CLASSIFIED deal when ones they thought long dead once again walk the earth?”

So, could Spider-Man be seeing the return of not just one person, but more, or even all of the people that have died in his life over his decades-long career. FCBD is the first Saturday of May, so we don’t have too much longer until we find out more.

Oh, and the red curtain? Well, that sure seems to be a nod across the country to the distinguished competition and their own teaser of a “Rebirth.”
