Indeed. Anytime a character "apparently dies", but no one ever found the body, he/she ain't dead...
That is until they show up as undead zombie for no apparent reason in a major crossover. What kills me, Herald, is that it was clearly stated that JPV's body was never found so if he died where did his body go? They didn't even bother showing what impact Jean Paul's supposed death had on the Bat family. I would love to have known how Dick, Tim, Cassie, Barbara and everyone else reacted to his death but DC just acted like he never existed after his series ended. If they had at least given a proper sendoff to Jean Paul then I wouldn't have minded. It's ironic that a less popular character like Spoiler when she was thought dead after War Games the impact of her passing was clearly felt in the bat-books-same with Jason Todd who was even more hated that Jean Paul ever was. Plus giving us Michael Lane as a replacement was just forced editorial mandate given the fact that the Azrael fans clearly wanted Jean Paul back. Too bad Didio's stupidity prevented that for the time being. I never really got the antipathy for Didio up till this point as this had his influence all over it.
