    But you can't deny that some characters should have stayed dead, at least because their deaths became part of a larger mythos.

I can and do deny it. Their rebirths can just as well become part of the larger mythos. Nothing whatsoever should be permanent.

    Phoenix should have stayed dead. I don't care what her name is or what it implies, Jean Grey did not need to come back.

I especially vehemently disagree with this. She should never have died in the first place, but her coming back is the best thing that ever happened with her. And her second death was disgusting and should be unwritten.

I think Jean had to die the first time and Jim Shooter made the right call. Jean had obliterated a star system and killed millions, if not billions of people. She had become a Galactus level mass murderer but she was still human. How is someone supposed to look at her as anything less than a monster? I don't care if you say she was under the influence, she remembered doing it. She remembered destroying that Shi'ar cruiser with all hands. Just removing her powers was not enough.

Jean had to die in order to make the story that much more powerful, and that is why death should still have some meaning in comics.
