10 Marvel Series That That Should Be Revived… Or Should They?
Even if you’re the sort of comics fan who only dips a toe in the murky waters of industry news, it’s hard not to get soaked by the Merry Marvel Marketing Machine these days — especially when it comes to the InterWebs.
What’s surprising, however, is that the crew over at Marvel.com is providing some genuinely interesting and/or fun content every now and then, and not just treating their website as a place to post press releases. (Although the constant barrage of "Who Do You Trust" promos is starting to make my teeth hurt.) If you can wade through all of the Skrull hype, there are some decent interviews and fun features to be found at the "House of Ideas" online HQ — and this one, a list of 10 series that Marvel’s "Secret Cabal" would like to revive, is one of them.

Why It Should Be Brought Back: "Does this really need any explanation? Enchantress! Doom! Galactus! Roller Skates! A movie!!! Who else in the Marvel U has had a biopic? No one! Canceled right when it was getting good—and after being trained by the X-Men…and defeating them—the exploits of Alison Blaire were carried on in the pages of UNCANNY X-MEN until she ran off to settle down. But this songbird is a free spirit and she must fly. Her powers have never properly been used to their greatest extent, nor has Marvel’s only diva been given her real chance to—pun alert—shine. I know why this caged bird sings…she needs her ongoing series!!!" –Secret Cabal member RunawayJ
Spotlight Comic: UNCANNY X-MEN #130 Dazzler makes her star-studded debut, aiding the X-Men against the Hellfire Club.
Even though I’m not eagerly anticipating a Dazzler revival, I admire the tenacity, RunawayJ. Here’s hoping you get your wish.
