The Human Torch is dead (at least for now), another character died in the penultimate issue of Buffy Season 8, and some deceased Marvel heroes live again in the last chapter of Chaos War. I’m only affected by that last one; I hope that the resurrected characters are used properly now that they’re released from comic book limbo.
In other news, the Thundercats are back, ditching the spandex-y duds for a more anime-y look. Lion-O looks younger than his original incarnation, and the redesigns look less sexy, but I hope that it’s a good reboot, regardless. The show will air later this year on Cartoon Network. There will also be updated versions of sidekick characters Snarf, WilyKit and WilyKat, according to an MTV article.
