    sometimes I like to imagine an alternate timeline where Peter and Mary Jane are raising baby May and also Peter is still a science teacher

    amen

    Peter wakes up next to Mary Jane and says "Honey, wake up. You won't believe the dream I just had." and then their daughter jumps on the bed and asks for pancakes.

    It was always heavily hinted, but never explicitly confirmed. Even if it was, this is the industry that essentially defined the term "retcon" so we'll see where they go with this.

    My secret hope is that Daisy basically just leads a covert branch for SHIELD. maria is a fine fit to run the main show, but have Daisy running black ops and stuff with the rest of the secret warriors crew.

    Though I guess most of the opposition in a covert conflict were resolved in secret warriors anyway.

    But Maria Hill is a stupid character, whose character resume primarily consists of "appointed director of SHIELD to serve as weak stooge for Civil War" and other such failures. She doesn't have history, she's not likeable, she doesn't have any describable skills. Daisy is at least in theory the real Nick Fury Jr., who operated as Fury's inside man orchestrating things for him inside SHIELD for how many years, and then did Secret Warriors. Actually, the only argument needed is:

    Daisy Johnson is a superspy who was in Secret Warriors and that was awesome. Maria Hill was not.

    Honestly

    If I went into comics and figured out I was good at writing them

    I would literally set up my entire career in such a way to get into the position to undo One More Day

    Because fuck. That.

    See, what I'm thinking at this point is that the Director of SHIELD right now doesn't have to be the super spy, but rather the one that is visible to the public (or at least the political/superhero/military people who would be interacting with SHIELD), that is a name associated with SHIELD and a leadership role in SHIELD, and basically can run damage control. SHIELD is a different organization now, and it seems to be setting up more as the global police than the global CIA.

    The true blue superspy leader is the one that nobody should even know is pulling the covert shit.

    It's a silly hope, but basically I see them pushing Maria as director and if I can't have Daisy as director, I'd settle for her just doing the really hush hush stuff with her own team.

    Er, no, it was flat out confirmed. Doom 2099 ran into "original flavor" Doom, but it was revealed that "original flavor" was the false doom and the 2099 was the real deal. For the 928 universe at least.

    Maria Hill actually became a really great character after Civil War. Iron Man, Avengers, etc.

    She is awesome.

    At first it got a "mehhh" because characters back from the dead etc etc (even if they didn't exactly say he's coming back from the dead, just that his story isn't over) and also Azazel. But with Jason Aaron and Ed McGuiness at the helm I have faith it'll be rad.

    I wonder if, whenever they need to bring a character back from, the editors hang up a big office bulletin: "Need 50 ideas for resurrection story for X by 3pm. Winner gets a set of steak knives."

    Jason Aaron has been teasing Nightcrawler's return since WatXM started.

    He also wrote an incredible issue of the Wolverine solo title that dealt with Logan grieving over Kurt's death.

    This is not a dartboard situation.

    Still, there's plenty of "And pray for a resurrection" feeling around it when you're teasing a return that fast. I feel like there should be a minimum of 5 real life years before a character is resurrected, unless the same writer does it right at the end of the arc or at the end of the immediate next arc.

    First place is a Cadillac.
    Second place is a set of steak knives.
    Third place is you're fired.

    I want to see Nightcrawler's reaction to being resurrected, especially if he's been dead dead. Because in Marvel canon the afterlife is real. I'd want to know

    A. Did he go to the Afterlife?
    B. Was it Heaven?
    C. Was it Hell?
    D. If (B), does he resent being alive again?
    E. If (C), is he grateful? Is he resentful at God? Is he hellbent (so to speak) on proving himself worthy of Heaven?

    The Wolverine vs. the X-Men/Wolverine Goes to Hell story did have Nightcrawler's spirit as an agent of Heaven helping Wolverine fighting off the demonic possession. Telling Emma Frost when she thought that he was a part of Logan's subconsciousness to fight of the intruders "No, I'm the real..." and telling Logan that Heaven has the best beer. And as that story was also written by Jason Aaron, I don't think he will sweeping Nightcrawler's death under the rug.

    It's supposed to take Astonishing's spot, but Marvel is a publishing Hydra, so there's probably one more book planned to launch too. And this time it will be three times a month, two in one week!

    I just want more people in the Marvel Universe to not act like death of a hero is serious business. Now Cyclops can point to Kurt and go "Remember how you were all crybabies when he died and blamed me like you always do? You know he was going to come back, right? So shut up about Xavier!"
