Only two weeks after the initial teaser, Marvel has released a new hint that the “Dead No More” character will be Spider-Man-related with a new image. The image shows the “Dead No More” text against a red curtain which is covered in spider webs.
Marvel offers a brief description for the issue, which reads: “If you got a chance to bring back someone who died, would you? And how will CLASSIFIED deal when ones they thought long dead once again walk the earth?”
The answer to the teaser will be revealed on Free Comic Book Day. Marvel’s offering this year will be a free lead-in to “Captain America: Steve Rogers” from writer Nick Spencer and artist Jesus Saiz. The second half of the flip-book will reveal the secret of the “Dead No More” teaser.
Of Spidey’s roster, Uncle Ben, Gwen Stacy and Doc Ock are the most prominent deceased characters. While Gwen has seen renewed interest thanks to her alternate universe “Spider-Gwen” series, it seems more likely that Doc Ock will be the one making a comeback, as he recently resurfaced in robot form at the end of a recent issue of “Amazing Spider-Man.”
Free Comic Book Day takes place on Saturday, May 7.
