As Syfy and Syfy Wire undergo a refresh, we thought it'd be a great time to look at a few of our favorite relaunches across the genre. From comics to movies, here are the relaunches we think actually turned out to be pretty great.

We shine the spotlight on Kelly Sue DeConnick's modern-day Captain Marvel revival, the team refresh in Giant Size X-Men and DC's groundbreaking Crisis on Infinite Earths — but that's not all. Along with hitting the more obvious relaunches, like Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy and Tom Holland's new-look Peter Parker, we also get into the weeds a bit. Like, how about an ode to the awesomeness of Wesley Wyndam-Pryce? Or the fact that Riker's beard single-handedly saved Star Trek: The Next Generation?

Yeah, we went there.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think.
