not supported.

no evidence worth the effort.
no examples.
no dictionary entries.

google gets just two hits for this, and both are from LEO - your suggestion!

The link is to a comic.

considering that AHD and m-w.com are about the most serious dictionaries available online, and that m-w.com normally lists even the most obscure words, and that your suggestion is in neither, I'd hazard the guess that this is either a fantasy word, or that it is extremely rare or specialised. If the latter, then all the more reason that proper evidence is supplied.

Außerdem bedeutet Wiederbelebung, dass das Wiederbelebte früher mal am Leben war, und inzwischen gestorben ist. Das heißt “revivification” auf englisch. Und das ist hier ausdrücklich nicht der Fall ("it's a construct").
