Well I did point out in another thread that Marv's pwoers were never fully defined and explored.
For instance, it somehow became the belief that his "photonic powers" came from the nega bands and that isn't right.
The nega bands let him tap cosmic energies and give flight and boost his strength, but the photonic power comes from an ability he gained to absorb energy from light sources, mainly the sun. he would then used tat energy to fly rather then the nega bands, hence the sparkle trail, fire energy beams and boost his strength even more. But his upper limits were not established despite having fought Drax the Destroyer to a stand still on two occcasions and Drax at that time had power to rival Thanos.
Cosmic Awareness: apparently it is a cosmic version of the spider-sense but it also lets one apparently access knowledge of what could be/might be/actually is (from Genis series) and to perceive weaknesses and strengths in the foes Marv faces and thus know when to strike.
That was shown when he fought the Controller and later battled Thanos before he used the Cube, and later to divine how to stop Thanos after Thanos used the cube.
is it insight? is it telepathy? is it somehow linked to Eternity? I don't know because they never really took the time to develop Marv's powers.
But in CU#1, Marv states it was Thanos that helped Marv to accept Death, thus indicating that his final fight in DoCM did in fact occur and that Marv was resolved to being dead, hence why he hasn't returned. That sentiment would later occur again in Avengers vs X-men after the Phoenix briefly revived him. He stated at least twice "I didn't miss life", but he wasn't overly angry at being back either. To me that indicates a conflict within Marv, he still will enjoy being alive when brought back, but he still longs for the peace of the hereafter.
it comes down to choice. Marv once had to CHOOSE a new path and become the Protector and renounce his past. Marv at the end CHOSE to accept the kiss of death rather then fight on for his life. Marv chooses the peace of the hereafter. until he changes his mind and chooses life again, he won't be back unless forcibly revived again.
