Here's an interesting idea for a 'What If?'
"What if every character who has 'died' since the comic book universe began had stayed dead?"
What would the world look like now? Might be an interesting story.
Lets see. Off the top of my head:
Half of the MU "died" during the Infinity Gauntlet thing.
Captain America was "killed" by Crossbones.
Thor "died" during Ragnarok.
Reed, Ben & Johnny have all been "dead" at least once.
Tony Stark "died" in the Crossing, just before Heroes Reborn.
Spider-Man "died" during the Other.
Vision & Hawkeye was "killed" by Scarlet Witch.
Wolverine "died" and had a demon take over his body in Aaron's run.
Nightcrawler "died" and is coming back now.
Cyclops "died" after bonding with Apocalypse.
DC's not much better, as we saw during Blackest Night.
All of the JLA "died" during the Obsidian Age & Batman made plans for a replacement league.
Hal Jordan "died" and bonded with the Spectre.
Batman "died" in R.I.P/Final Crisis
"The Death of Superman" was a big selling event.
Oliver Queen & Barry Allen hung out in Heaven during Kevin Smith's run.
And so forth.
It's a novel idea, but I don't know who would star in it.
