With respect, there's an entire *type* of resurrection - the Editorially 
mandated resurrection - that is alien to the setup of the Legion of 
Net.Heroes, or any of the other story imprints on RACC.  We don't have 
any characters who are corporation-owned money-spinners who need to be 
kept in the public eye in order to keep the action figure lines selling 
and the copyrights active.  When *we* resurrect our characters in 
annoying ways, it's either because we're playing with the story tropes, 
or because we're being drooling fanboys :-)
