Figuretoon Quickies

"Nobody Dies Forever"

It used to be said that no one in comics stayed dead but Uncle Ben, Jason Todd and Bucky. In 2005, all three of them came back in one way or another:

  • Uncle Ben showed up in the pages of Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, though he was eventually revealed to be from a parallel dimension.
  • Jason Todd was secretly the new Red Hood, brough back to life when Superboy punched time.
  • And Bucky showed up as Winter Soldier, having been a brainwashed amnesiac Russian assassin since the end of WWII.

However, that Uncle Ben is not the Uncle Ben in this Figuretoon. This is clearly the guy from the rice boxes, who similarly got a revamp a few years ago, going from manservant to corporate executive, which is what Jason is refering to. Bucky's smart enough to keep his mouth shut.
