    You're just figuring that out now?

    But honestly, Wolverine was dead longer than I thought he'd be.

    Thanos says that age is just a number and she's spry as ever.

    Could just be a trend that'll wear out over time as authors find new favorite tropes. I do agree through that overusing removes whatever impact it could have.
    Doctor Strange: "You are the right person to replace Logan."
    X-23: "I know there are people who disapprove... Guys on the Internet mainly."

    A fresh reminder that Bucky used to be on this list, and he got brought back 15 years ago. This is nothing new.

    Death is just another obstacle/opponent for a hero to succumb to before they inevitably overcome it. Hopefully the execution of it makes for an entertaining or rewarding story to some degree.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Die - Eternals - New Mutants - Once & Future - Runaways - S.W.O.R.D. - X-Men

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.

    I think Mar-Vell's on that list.

    And Nathan Garret, the villainous Black Knight.

    "Nothing dies!" to quote a passage from my favorite series. It's proof that the omniverse is still broken. It will get covered in the 2021 event, tentatively called "Death's Pendulum: How to Swing Back to the Grave & Love It."

    Interesting question: who hasn’t managed to stay dead?

    This was sort of addressed in Marvel: The End, when Thanos fixes it so dead means dead. That lasted until Colossus was resurrected the next year.

    They do it because death and rebirth both temporarily increase sales. And it used to be by a lot, actually. To give the most stunning example of this: Death of Superman sold 3 million copies in one day back in 1992. His return also sold over 3 million copies.

    The sales increase isn't as significant these days now that we've all become so desensitized to it (and the mainstream news no longer runs the story), but it still does increase sales a little bit. Enough that they keep doing it.

    It would be easier to list who HAS managed to stay dead, wouldn't it?
