I'm not saying I definitively believe Marc is dying. I'm just making wild leaps of the imagination.
The way I see it, Marvel has given Moon Knight a few years and multiple titles to become a breakout star in their universe. For whatever reasons, that hasn't really happened. True, he's been making a lot of good cameos in other books, but I think that's more a byproduct of Marvel pushing the character to increase recognition than it is a result of popularity. I hope I'm wrong about that.
Anyway, it isn't entirely out of the question that Moon Knight's little run with Ultron is really just a prelude to Bendis' upcoming Age of Ultron or the Secret Avengers upcoming story arc involving Adaptoids and other robotic threats. If that's the case, Moon Knight could be killed as a way to both end Marvel's MK pitch and usher in the new storylines. Once again, this is nothing I'm absolutely convinced is happening. They're just thoughts bouncing around in my brain. For instance, I've a thought that Echo might temporarily fill in for Marc if he dies or gets injured. She's got the ability to mimic his fighting styles and it wouldn't be the first time she's worn tights. I don't really see that happening either, but it's a thought.
As to whether or not Marc would come back from being dead, I'm aware that's kind of his schtick. However, I'm concerned that if he does die, it will end the series. Marvel might revive the character, but that doesn't mean they'll revive the book.
Whatever happens, it's nice to have a conversation about it with people who seem to really like the character.
