I wonder if anyone can name 10 fairly recognizable characters from the Big Two that have NOT died and come back?

Yeah, it's less dramatic and more of a waiting game these days.
"Oh no, they're killing the Human Torch at the end of this 4 part story!"
"Eh, he'll be back in a year or so."
And, sure enough...
Aside from my challenge to name 10 fairly recognizable characters from the Big Two who have NOT died and come back, I wonder how many Marvel/DC characters we can think of that have died and come back MORE THAN ONCE?
Jean Grey "died" in the Dark Phoenix Saga and again in Grant Morrison's New X-Men.
Batman died in Grant Morrison's R.I.P and, right around the same time, he "died" in Final Crisis.
Xavier "died" years ago (but then we found out it was Changling who'd taken his place), believed dead after House of M and then was killed in AvX.
