For a quick article about the Princess Diana character that Marvel was going to resurrect before it was cancelled, as mentioned in the opening segment, check out this 2003 Entertainment Weekly article:

Marvel actually had the gall to say this in the article, "Everyone’s favorite royal, Princess Diana, is back from the dead and on her comeback tour…and it’s up to the X-Statix (team) to keep her alive," and followed that up with, "She looks great in Spandex!"
