        I'm very opposed to the permanence of anything.

      I like that notion in theory if not in practice.

    Indeed. "In practice" it depends on what and how.

    There are certainly things that I adore and don't want to see end. The opposite holds true, as well.
    - I have no wish to see Sentry ever again.
    - I will never pine over Apocalypse.
    - Fantomex probably should have stayed dead, too.
    - Although I love the Spidey marriage, I would have accepted its ending had it been done in practically any other way than what OMD/OMIT gave us, especially if that way involved Aunt May really dying and not coming back.

    But I cannot support the idea of a character staying dead, in perpetuity, simply because one writer/editor/regime okayed their death. This is especially true when deaths are done for shock/sales, which seems to be almost all of the time.

See I only look at it as who not what or how. If I don't like a character then there's no way to convince me their resurrection was worth it and if I like the character I don't care how retarded the explanation for the resurrection is or what other crap comes along with it.

There's no logic to this. We like who we like.

I think I'm like you in the sense that if I like a character there is no way you can convince me there is a need to kill them off or that their death shouldn't be undone because it's a classic. Unlike you I would happily sacrifice characters I dislike because I'm sure I'm never going to warm up to them.
