How was Joe Kelly's resurrection of Guy Gardner ignored? He's still walking around, isn't he? ;)

Heh, I don't even remember that. In fact, all I took away from that story was Guy saying he was gonna "find big women who can hurt me and insult them until they do".

Sadly, not a Mravel employee, but I can talk Strucker. He's actually way behind the likes of Doctor Doom and the Mandarin in the "being dead, coming back" sweepstakes, though.

He's died a grand total of three times in the flesh:

In Jim Steranko's masterful Strange Tales v.1 #158, he perished when Nick Fury swapped identities with him, causing Eric von Stroheim...I mean, Wolfgang von Strucker to get confused and dash into a radiation chamber.

He was resurrected in SHIELD v.2 #15 whent he Red Skull sent agents to use some DNA mumbo jumbo to merge him with Steranko's Death Spore.

He died again in SHIELD v.2 #47, getting his hand chopped off by Nick and plunging down a cliffside. The issue is, shall we say, far from Steranko's standard.

And finally, he died in Wolverine v.3 #26, when the Gorgon executed him for his failures. Taking advantage of John Romita Jr.'s radical artistic reinterpretation of the character and a botched crossover story, Fabian Nicieza had the Baron reveal that the Strucker killed in Wolverine was actually just a crappy, "genetic copy."

Oh, and in between not one, but two Strucker robots turned up, one in Captain America v.1 132-3 (where he was treated as the real Strucker, back from the dead without explanation by a forgetful Stan Lee and Gene Colan), which was revealed as a robot and blowed up good in issue #247; and another in Cap v.1 #273-4, this one a robot Strucker had set up before his first death. It also blowed up good.
