In the world of comics, supposedly dead characters returning from the grave is a pretty common occurence. On top of that, with all the clones and alternate reality versions of people running around, it’s almost impossible to ever know if the characters who perish are really the genuine article. However, despite the frequency of apparent resurrections or the interference of meddlesome doppelgangers, there are a select few comic book characters who have managed to stay permanently dead for years. And now we’d like to honor them here for their continued dedication to remaining deceased.
12. Vulcan (Gabriel Summers)
During a war between Shi’ar and the Kree, Vulcan engages in a titanic battle with Black Bolt, the leader of the Inhumans. During the course of the battle, Black Bolt detonates a weapon of incredible power known as the T-Bomb and the resulting explosion is so powerful that it rips a hole in the fabric of space time and leaves no trace of Vulcan anywhere to be found. Gabriel Summers has never been seen or heard from since the event.
