Relaunches are all the rage in comic books nowadays, but bringing back a superhero TV series that nobody really cared about by the time it ended seems like a hard sell, especially when it’s spearheading a new programming initiative for a video game console. As part of a push to bring original content to the Xbox, MSN is in talks to dig up the corpse of NBC’s Heroes and bring it back to life, presumably via Lazarus Pit, Infinity Formula, or some other fantastic comic book creation that keeps things from dying. The revived show would feature a fresh cast of heroes along with cameos from former cast members, setting up a new storyline to go drastically off the rails by its second season (if it gets that far). If anything, the new Heroes seems like the perfect place for The Cape to continue his tragically short superhero career.
