Spoilers for this week’s Uncanny Avengers #4 follow.
As the final pages of Uncanny Avengers #4 revealed, Rick Remender has plans to revive Onslaught. At CBR, the man behind similar revivals of Venom and X-Force addressed his seeming penchant for the 1990s:
I never saw myself as being the guy to take ideas from the ’90s and to polish them up, but it’s been fun trying to do something unique and new with them… I’ve discovered that I like taking these recognizable, iconic pieces that I was once disdainful of and trying to give them a new life. It’s a fun challenge. Hopefully when people see what we have coming up with this and the scale of it all they’ll be pretty excited.
Now that we’re at the point of 1990s revivals, has the revival trend essentially reached its end? I mean, are there any original characters of note that appeared for the first time in books from the Big Two in the early 2000s?
