Resurrection 001

Spawn brought back to life his friend Bobby.

Resurrection is the ability for some characters to restore themselves, or others from the dead. Sometimes confused with Immortality, Resurrection is a term used to describe the ability of some characters to return to life after having died. It differs 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. It also differs from Necromancy in that a character is restored anew, where necromancer animates a dead person. 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.

Other uses of Resurrection include gaining new abilities, new skills or a rejuvenated body. However, this almost always happens with a negative or unforeseen consequence.
