Oh Hey, Stilt-Man is Alive Again!

Comics give and comics take. It’s a vicious cycle of pain and hope. Last week, one of my all-time favorite comic book characters — the Mimic — was killed in the pages of Extermination. I was pretty bummed.

But his death won’t stick, not forever. A good example of that is the fact that the original Stilt-Man, Wilbur Day, was resurrected this week in the pages of Superior Spider-Man! Turns out, he was cloned back to life by the Jackal during Clone Conspiracy, and then was given a new clone body, so he didn’t melt like all the rest.

It’s a bit of a stretch resurrection, and this might also be considered a mere clone of Wilbur Day…but I think I’ll take it. I could use a nice, happy resurrection after last week.

Wilbur Day was killed in the wake of Civil War by the Punisher, way back when. He was then replaced by Lady Stilt-Man, of whom I am the internet’s highest authority. There were also some mooks who took over the identity while Day was dead, who also fought Superior Spider-Man.

And that’s your Stilt-Man history lesson for today! I’m still waiting on that Marvel Legends version. Or LEGO mini-fig.
