Today started off as any other. Got up. Went to work. Moved papers from one side of my desk to another. Then I looked at the Internet and saw something that may or may not have made be squee.
Everyone who reads comics knows that dead doesn’t mean dead. Superman. Green Lantern. Jean Grey. They’ve all died and come back to life. The real question isn’t “If?” it’s “When and how?” The past few months have seen the return of characters like Barry Allen, Conner Kent, and Bart Allen. Steve Rogers has recently returned from the dead, even if he has yet to return to the mantle of Captain America. Even Batman is coming back. (You’ll note I didn’t say “Bruce Wayne is coming back.” No disrespect to Dick Grayson, but only one man deserves to use the name Batman.)
Anyway…this is all well and good. I like having Steve back. And Conner and Bart. But, there is one character whose return has been on my annual wish list since she heroically sacrificed herself to save the planet over five years ago. And, today Marvel Comics announced that this particular character will, in fact, be returning in March.
I’m going to leave it at that. If you know me, you know who I’m talking about.
And she’s coming home.
