View Full Version : Ressurection Theme Day
12-11-2004, 12:09 AM
So, with the end of the C2F awards over, and most of the theme days and projects winding down, I thought I'd start up some new bustle.
You know how often, a superhero in the comics dies in the line of duty, or gets written out of continuity? Well, this theme day is a sort of "What If?" thing.
What would the dead or un-written heroes of yester-year look like or be if they were still around today?
These charicters could be people who bought it during the "Crisis," disposable X-men, old Liefield creations, sidekicks, or even WW2 vets.
You could also do tributes to the recently dead charicters, if you wanted.
And be creative! Messing with the memories of beloved dead charicters is good clean fun!
So, who would be up for this? And when should something like this be scheduled for?

I imagine I'll probably do the pic I'm thinking of whether it's for a theme day or not.

I could give it a try if I knew some characters. I'm sorry to admit that my comic buying days have been over for many years due to financial reasons. However, my mom is a comic collecting demon. Maybe I could ask her too. But if you are thinking before this decade then she would not know. Give me some ideas.
i'm not sure if i could turn anyone into this character but is xorn a dead character? resurrection of xorn isnt such a good idea but magneto died too.

I think Xorn is just supposed to be lost, not dead.
But Force, some names to look for:
Earth 2 Huntress
Earth 2 Robin
Crystal (New Teen Titans)
Dr. Midnight (Infinity Inc.)
Wildcat (Infinity Inc.)
Troia, Donna Troy (Kinda Dead, but she'll be back pretty soon.)
Most of the old JSA people.
Those are just a few. Otherwise, try googling "Dead Superheroes."

i think there's someone dead (for now) that i wouldn't mind reanimating...

In the x-men cemetery, we have Colossus, Magik, Doug Hamsey and some New Mutants as well, Blink (in our reality)...I could remember more, but right now I need to go to ANOTHER doctor's apointment.

Well I went to Barnes and Noble to do some research and I came up with a few to try. Some of these may or may not be dead, but for being a published character they are, I think. I'm gonna try The Destroyer and The Blonde Phantom. I couldn't really tell if they were dead or just discontinued. However, the original Destroyer and Blonde Phantom are presumed dead with new people taking over the roles. Anyway, I'll give it a go.

The problem with this list is, most all of them came back.
Those still dead:
Green Goblin/Norman Osborn (or not? I'm not sure.)

Hey Junkyard, you ok with the Blonde Phantom and/or The Destroyer?

You don't need to check it by me, Force.
By the way, something to consider when doing these: Keep in mind how long ago (in the comic's time) they died, and what direction they where moving in, and try to think of what changes they would have made to their selves or their look.
