Spider-Man: "Dead No More"



A lot of possible candidates for this (and it'd be just another day in the office for Marvel revivals at this point). Indeed, there's a plot thread in the Spider-Man books currently where a man in red is offering villains the chance to be reunited with their deceased loved ones in exchange for their services.

I'd say the odds are 50/50 this new Wasp is Hope.

Because MCU.

The comics don't really tie as much into the MCU as people think they do. Half their roster now consists of legacy heroes just as DC were in the 90s.

They don't, but at a first-glance level, they try to keep in line as much as possible. Promoting characters with movies, pulling characters with rival movies...

Again, 50/50 it's Hope.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Deaths in comics these days have become such a joke.

Could be Wolverine, They recently killed him off if I remember.

No, this is a Spider-Man event where all of his loved ones, and the loved ones of other villains, are coming back from the dead

There were a lot of contributing factors to Gwen's death. Hell, the original plan at the time wasn't even to kill Gwen, but Aunt May. It was John Romita that suggested they bump someone else off.

At the time, Stan was intending to marry Peter off to Gwen, but the creative teams weren't keen on the idea, and believed Mary Jane was a more viable candidate for a love interest. Stan gave his blessing to kill her off to make Spidey comics more interesting. It was due to the backlash over Gwen's death that we got the first Clone Saga as a compromise, which did'nt amount to anything other than allow Peter to choose MJ over Gwen. Later, Stan and Jim Shooter made the decision to marry Peter off to MJ, which led to 20 years of problems on the end of the Spider-Offices, but 20 glorious years for fans (well, ok, 1999-2001 sucked for marriage fans, but everything up to 2007, was pretty rosey, and there was also the Spider-Girl books from 1998-2010 providing great stability for the pair as well as a lasting legacy)

Unfortunately, we live in an age now where most of the fans running the title and newcomer fans are die-hard Gwen fanboys, that's evident with the over saturation of the character in the market with the insane Gwen variants where she's the Hulk, or Doctor Strange, or Gwenpool, or even Brian Micheal Bendis (I s*it you not, there's a "Brian Micheal Gwendis" variant), you add in the impact of Emma Stone's performance as Gwen in the ASM movies and the Spider-Gwen title and suddenly there's an awful lot of demand for the wrongs of the 70s to be righted and for Peter's "one twu luv" to be re-established, especially now that Marvel have phased out Peter's relationship with MJ pretty much completely vis devil magic and OOC writing (although the newspaper strip has remained pretty defiant so far and has kept the two married for 29 years)

Apparently some fans have worked out that "Dead No More" is an anagram of "One More Dad"
