Quote:um...I don't think that's true. At least not officially.
There was a timeline reset in The End but I don't think it was officially implied in print that starting with The End every time Starlin wrote Thanos it was an alternate timeline. Starlin just sort of implies in interviews that he doesn't pay attention to what other writers do with the character. I don't think an official demarcation point exists...The Infinity Revelation for example referenced non Starlin related Thanos stories. And as recently as Thanos's Infinity Finale we were debating whether that affected 616 continuity or not.
I believe you are correct about Marvel The End.
I remember Quesada saying in an interview way back when it was supposed to make death count in the Marvel universe again (I believe Whedon is the one that killed that). Then it is referenced in the Thanos series, which is referenced in later works.
I remember Starlin (through Thanos) taking a shot at the Thanos/Earth's heroes story, Infinity Saying it was like he was someone else.
I remember he liked the Abnettt and Lanning take.
I think the Starlin-verse thing is just an assumption people make, which may or may not be true, base on Marvel's questionable editorial choices involving their cosmic work.
At this point I wish they would resurrect Mar-Vell so I wouldn't have to hear about it any more. They've dangled that carrot in front of people so often they might as well follow through. If Bucky and Ben Reilly can come back there's no reason to keep Mar-Vell dead. I don't think I personally would enjoy the story but maybe the resurrection will give his fans a much needed catharsis. Maybe they can put Carol back in the black costume...
I am a firm believer that from a story/character standpoint Mar-Vell should stay dead. But, I am sick of hearing people say he should be resurrected, so... sure(reluctantly).
I think I am on the same page as you. Bringing a character back has to live by one rule, the story that does it has to be at least as good as the one that killed them.
Death of Captain Marvel is a great story.
Bring back Genis and Phyla, and give him an interesting personal arc from the word go.
