2020 Bracket Battle: Reviver Edition

And, here it is… at long last. 2020 BRACKET BATTLE! Let’s get this started!

There’s no coming back—or is there? What if that beloved character who met their unfortunate demise could be revived to fight another day or posthumously rip out your heartstrings? What if that long-lost companion could come back (without the creepy “Pet Semetary” vibe and smell) for more adventures?

Now is your chance to decide who will defy the laws of nature and history to return for a comeback. You decide who most deserves to another chance in this year’s bracket battle… Welcome to REVIVER! 

No zombie reanimation here…  but back to their true form and back into the fray! What if a shift in the universe has made it so our favorite heroes, heroines, friends and foes of the past make it back for a little redemption?

How many things would have turned out differently if your favorite character was allowed to continue with their story?

Oh, and it probably goes without saying, but spoilers abound in this year’s bracket battle. If your must-watch blockbuster queue in Netflix is reeeeally long… well, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Here’s a quick reminder on the rules of engagement:
