Ah Clever Orville, very clever.

I was 13 or 14 when I created a character called "The Ghost Sheriff." He was a real old west sheriff who had been betrayed and murdered and his spirit cried out for both justice and vengeance. He would be drawn in to reanimate the body of any lawman who had just been murdered, and remain in their body (But with his mind) until he solved the crime. Then he would leave and the lawman would return to death.

I never did much with the character as I am a far better writer than I am an artist (ok I suck at drawing) and I am not an expert writer either.

As I got older I began to wonder what if the Ghost Sheriff decided to live the life of the murdered cop and just not solve the crime.

That idea was briefly explored with Deadman wanting to hold onto a body he inhabited.

Not a Deadman fan at all, but there was at least one story where I enjoyed. It was not in his own comic but his Guest-appearance in a Batman story.

In an accident Batman became brain-dead, as shown by the electroencephalograph which showed a flat line. Brain dead but his vital organs were still functioning, namely respiratory and circulatory. The Doctor let Robin decide whether to unplug the life support system or not. Robin decided to keep Batman alive for a little while longer.

While brain dead, Batman's spirit had a post-death experience where he visited the afterlife. In this afterlife, he meets his actual parents who had already died. Understandably Batman is overwhelmed with joy at the Reunion.

He had missed them so much that now he wants to stay with them even though his Parents insist that Bruce is too young to die yet, that he still has many more things he has to accomplish on the Earth. But Bruce is insistent on staying with them.

It is at this point that Deadman appears. By recounting Batman's key achievements, Deadman finally convinces Batman to return to his body on Earth where he overcomes the flat line and thereby revives.

We know a fellow who died three times according to his doctors and nurses. Interestingly, the fellow tells three quite different stories of what happened to him and of how different people saved him and so on. He actually had a heart attack and hurt his head and somebody did save him but he does not recall that story at all. We think he will get well soon.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

It's really too bad that actress Brie Larson has been making so many feminist remarks about the Captain Marvel movie. It will alienate much of the Male audience which is always bad for the box-office. I guess she thinks that the movie is an opportunity for her to use as a soapbox. But I see this as hurting the box office.

Alienating a male audience for a super hero movie does not seem to me to be the recipe for blockbuster numbers.

I don't think her SJW publicity tour will necessarily hurt the movie. It will be the movie itself that makes or breaks it. If the movie turns out to be another SJW Last Jedi fiasco, it will really hurt it. If Marvel stays smart and stays away from SJW commentary in the movie itself, I think it'll continue Marvel's success. There are plenty of other SJW Marvel actors who make a lot of noise and they haven't hurt the movies themselves at this point. Here's keeping my fingers crossed.

This seems to indicate Netflix did the canceling.


Even more proof you were right that it was Netflix's decision which kinda surprises me.

"...On behalf of everyone at Marvel Television, we couldn't be more proud or more grateful to our audience.
Our Network partner may have decided they no longer want to continue telling the tales of these great characters... but you know Marvel better than that."

... Jeff Loeb - Marvel Television boss

(This comment came after Netflix's recent announcement that Punisher and Jessica Jones are also cancelled. (After Jessica's next and final season.)

I held out little hope for Ol Punishy. I LIKED the series, but it seemed doomed. Sad really. The politics of the streaming service world I guess are more than I understand.

I hope they don't get all racist with Captain Marvel. Illegal (extraterrestrial) immigrants and the horrors of a war brought into our society... I hope not. Smile

Reversing the polarity of a character (say using black actors for supporting characters in DCU... or rewriting a character as female in Doctor Who) is not SJW progress. It's a cute stunt which was old back when Shaksepeare's players were working. Recall the origin story of Green Lantern? Test pilot... alien police force... answers to who?

Amazon, Martian, Kree or Skrull - it's not like they are pushing any boundaries in SJW causes. Supergirl is not really a guy. Martha Kent is not also Marth Wayne. Wonder Woman is keeping her bracelets on but if you're nice she'll use her lasso.

Maybe Captain Marvell will be fun. I hope so.
