Resurrecting characters now seems commonplace. The most recent victim of "comicide" is Spider-Man who, after being mind-swapped into the dying body of his arch nemesis Doctor Octopus, dramatically passes away in soap opera fashion. He's replaced by The Superior Spider-Man series, in which Doc Ock decides to turn to the light and be a better Peter/Spidey than the original. It won't work; Peter Parker will come back to reclaim his body and everyone knows it. And will anyone care? When Clark Kent quit his job as a reporter for the Daily Planet, it made more international headlines than Spidey's death has.
This device is now a joke and is nothing but an easy out for writers. It's on par with "amnesia" and "being in a coma" in soap operas. Comic book writers, you really need to get a new playbook.
