Category talk:People who used to be dead but aren't anymore

Standard for inclusion

What is the standard for inclusion on this list? I added Bucky (now known as the Winter Soldier) to this list, but he was removed. So, is this list only for characters that have died and have since been resurrected? Or can it include those that died but were retconned back to life? I assume from the subtitle "Dead is dead... no wait!" that this category was sort of tongue-in-cheek, but nonetheless it might help prevent edit wars if this is cleared up.
Just remember, in comics, no one stays dead but Bucky!
Ahem. Let me try again.
No one stays dead but Jason Todd!
Really? They brought him back, too?
OK. No one stays dead but Uncle Ben!
What do you mean you just saw him in Friendly-Neighborhood Spider-Man?
Alright. Alright. No one stays dead but Gwen Stacy!
Clone? What clone?
OK, I'm really going to have to rethink my exit line.

For the record, Bucky was listed in the Book of the Dead section of the OHotMUDE. If that's not "used to be dead", I don't know what is. Cheers, --Lonesome Pinky 03:04, 25 July 2006 (EDT)

Bucky originally died, but it was retconned that he never died, therefore he can't be included in this category. The same holds true for any other character that is revealed to not have died. It just means that they were now "believed" to have died, which means they never died in order to be placed in this category. --DragynWulf 10:36, 25 July 2006 (EDT)
