Resurrection is the ability to return to life after having died. It is different from reincarnation in that the affected character is not physically reborn as an infant, but rather, they return to life possessing the same physical characteristics that they maintained prior to being killed. In many cases, resurrected beings also maintain all of the memories they once possessed prior to their death, but this is not always the case.
Death is often transitory in the DC Universe, and not all characters who have returned from the dead necessarily possess this ability as part of their standard repertoire of super-powers. When Superman died for example, he was only able to revive himself due to a photosynthetic reaction to Earth's sun. Even Doctor Occult informed him that such a feat was a one-time-only stunt, and could not be repeated.
One of the more widely known examples of a being with the Resurrection power is Solomon Grundy. Although Grundy is not a "living" being in the conventional sense, he will invariably reform his body no matter how extreme the manner of his demise may have been. Unlike others with this power, Grundy often suffers dramatic personality changes from one life to the next. In one incarnation he may be a savage, murderous brute; in others he may be reborn as an addle-brained man-child.
Another being with this power is Mitchell Shelley – the Resurrection Man. Shelley's ability to revive after death is dependent upon nanotechnology, specifically, microscopic devices implanted in his body known as "Tektites".
Swamp Thing (Alec Holland) possesses a unique application of the Resurrection ability. As the plant elemental of Earth, he can transpose his mental essence into any plantlike material, no matter how remote, even algae. The Swamp Thing generally creates a shell for himself using vegetative material from his immediate environment. If he abandons this shell, or if the shell is destroyed, he can relocate his essence into a new host form.
Resurrection should not be confused with Immortality, which represents a character's ability to live forever without fear of aging or dying.

Colloquially abbreviated as "res" or "rez", Resurrection means to bring a dead ally back to life. Resurrection is important when playing the game because it enables a party to recover a fallen member during the heat of battle, or at the worst case, have an opportunity at disaster-recovery when the party is nearly wiped out. One of the most annoying experiences in the game is when a party survives a near wipe-out experience, only to discover that the survivors do not have resurrection skills.
Resurrection Shrines offer resurrection services in explorable areas (but not in missions) as well as in some PvP scenarios. Players and pets can also be resurrected when a mission cutscene that brings the party together occurs. Resurrection shrines can be found on the mission map in the form of an ankh symbol.
Some resurrection skills are more useful than others depending on the situation. The most popular examples are given below. Read the description and notes for each skill to find out when they are most useful.

TCW Resurrection is the biggest PPV event of the year. It is TCW's "Super Bowl". This is the event where you want to be noticed. Every TCW Star longs for a spot on the card at this PPV event. It is the defining moment for a career to leave victorious at Resurrection. This is the only event in which the TCW World Heavyweight Champion is considered to be an underdog. And for good reason. Since it's inception in 2004, Only one TCW World Champion has successfully defended the World Championship at this event.
Resurrection, eternal life, and reincarnation are recurring themes on Lost. Christian, Egyptian, and Native American symbols have been used to reinforce these themes. As stated in an official podcast, the producers are creating a “resurrection theme”.
Rebirth in Buddhism is the doctrine that the consciousness of a person (as conventionally regarded), upon the death or dissolution of the aggregates (skandhas) which make up that person, becomes one of the contributing causes for the arising of a new group of skandhas which may again be conventionally considered a person or individual. The consciousness arising in the new person is neither identical to, nor different from, the old consciousness, but forms part of a causal continuum or stream with it. The basic cause for this persistent re-arising of personality is the abiding of consciousness in avijja (ignorance); when ignorance is uprooted, rebirth ceases.
Sikhs believe that every creature has a Soul; on death, the Soul is passed from one body to another until Liberation. The journey of the Soul is governed by the deeds and actions that we perform during our lives. If we perform good deeds and actions and remember the Creator, we attain a better life. On the contrary, if we carry out evil actions and sinful deeds, we will be incarnated in “lower” life forms – snakes, ghosts, animals, etc. The person who has evolved to spiritual perfection attains salvation – union with God. The Karmas of a person will definitely have their effect, both good and bad. No worldly power can change the course of their movement. But according to the Sikh thought, the Almighty God, with his Grace, may pardon the wrongs of a person and thus release him/her from the pangs of suffering. Reincarnation, simply stated, is the law of cause and effect: reincarnation does not create any caste or differences among people: past and present life's actions simply have a bearing upon a specific individual. Reincarnation in no way makes one superior to another.
An Ankh is an Egyptian hieroglyph that can symbolize life. Since Egyptian deities are often shown conferring that life to the deceased, it can represent eternal life. Ankhs have been seen on Paul’s necklace, and in the hands of a giant Egyptian statue. ("LaFleur")
Ben’s van has the company name "Canton-Rainier" on the side. It is an anagram for "reincarnation."
The symbol at the center of the DHARMA logos and The Hanso Foundation logo (yin-yang) is one which symbolizes an endless balance and cycle of the universe, including of reincarnation, an element of that referenced religion.
John 3:16 is a Bible passage that reads: "For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." This text appears on the Ajira Airways website. 316 was also the flight number for the Ajira Airways flight used to return to the island. ("316")
Multiple characters appear to have been resurrected.
Resurrection is a 48-page comic story that appeared in Star Wars Tales 9 and collected in Star Wars Tales Volume 3. The story was written by Ron Marz, with pencils by Rick Leonardi, inks by Terry Austin, letters by Steve Dutro and colors by Raul Trevino. It takes place shortly before the Battle of Yavin.
Darth Vader arrives on the volcanic moon Kalakar Six in order to intercept Rebels passing on stolen plans for the Death Star. Sensing something familiar after landing, Vader dispatches his squad of stormtroopers to scout the area. However, the stormtroopers are quickly cut down by a mysterious assassin, wielding a red lightsaber.
Vader enters a hollowed out volcano and is confronted by a number of Prophets of the Dark Side. They inform him that the information about the rebels is false, and that they brought him here because they don't think he is fit to serve the Emperor. As he attempts to strike the prophets down, he is blocked by a copy of Darth Maul. The Prophets resurrected Maul to replace Vader at the Emperor's side, and they goad Vader into dueling with the former Sith apprentice.
The pair launch into a furious duel, hurling insults at each other. They battle through the volcano onto a bridge situated over a river of lava. The bridge collapses, but both Sith narrowly escape falling in and the duel continues. Throughout the battle, the pseudo-Maul seems to have the edge, his agile tactics always matching Vader's brute force.
Vader manages to split his opponent's saber in two, but both sides remain intact. "Maul" strikes Vader on the helmet, causing him to fall to the floor. As the Maul copy moves in for the killing blow, Vader uses the Force to retrieve his lightsaber and stabs it through his own stomach, killing the enemy behind him. "Maul", before he dies, questions what Vader could hate enough to destroy him. Vader's response: "Myself".
As Vader confronts the Prophets, they are electrocuted by Palpatine. He has arrived to check on Vader's progress, though he denies any involvement with the Prophets. He informs Vader there is much to do in stopping the rebels with the stolen plans, and Vader dutifully follows his master to a waiting shuttle.
Resurrection was selected as one of Star Wars Insider 83's 20 Most Memorable Moments of the Expanded Universe, with Leland Chee confirming its canonicity on his blog.
