A major character, possibly even a popularly nasty BigBad, has been [[CharacterDeath killed]], pronounced dea
d and buried. However, the established laws of the [[TheVerse universe]] allow for FunctionalMagic, a SufficientlyAdvancedAlien, AppliedPhlebotinum, DeusExMachina or similar agency to intervene and subvert what naturally follows dying. Namely, ''staying dead''. (In some cases, an explanation [[UnexplainedRecovery isn't even bothered with]].)

** In chapter 45 [[spoiler: Doctor Strange]] brings back [[spoiler: Sif, who'd had her heart ripped out and Harry Dresden, who'd used his Death Curse to launch Gravemoss halfway into orbit]]. He's also implied to have saved/resurrected [[spoiler: Coulson.]]
** Technically Thor, having died as James Potter.
** [[spoiler: Harry]] in chapter 71, resurrected and possessed by the utterly enraged [[spoiler: Phoenix Force]] which promptly goes on an epic rampage. This makes sense when you realise that [[spoiler: the White Phoenix of the Crown is Lily Potter.]]
