At the conclusion of SE #10 Kobik puts everything back pretty much exactly how everyone predicted she would, but she 'left the scars and the wreckage'.

We see this quote next to a picture of both Black Widow and Rick Jones in the ruins of Las Vegas, but how are we supposed to interpret this?

Is this to be taken literally - that both characters were resurrected from their deaths - or are they still dead, and this is it all a big metaphor for 'scars and wreckage'?

We see a frame later in the issue of a funeral with a picture of a red haired woman that *could* be Widow, although theres no one else there who we recognise, so it could just as easily be a random red haired oman who died.


They are still dead. The consequences of what Hydra Cap has done has not been erased and the real Steve Rogers is going to have to deal with it.





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong.
