    Was Captain America or Bucky cheapened when Bucky was restored as the Winter Soldier? No. Many good stories came from that.

No, Cap and Bucky were tremendously cheapened.

    Was Jean Grey cheapened when she was brought back WAAAAY back when X-factor first started? Nope. Many good tales of her adjusting to being back, Cyclops being married to Madelyne, etc came from that. Now constantly making her the Phoenix and killing her and bringing her back ad nauseum, okay that gets cheap.

Jean was cheapened with that horrible X-Factor story and has been tremendously cheapened ever since.

    has Magneto been cheapened by all his apparent deaths and returns? yes. While there are some good stories that have from it, the character has been cheapened.

    Has the Red Skull been cheapened? hard to say. He is the ultimate nazi/ratzi and an insidious evil. I hope he is finally done though as of Secret Empire, but I doubt it.

    Apocalypse: with all his origins and returns? yeah he's cheapened.

Villains are different. Their apparent deaths are a convention of the genre.

    In the right hands, many good stories about Marv and his return and its impact on Earth, the Kree, and universe itself can be told.

Marvel can tell similar stories using Carol Danvers. Why bring back a character whose best story was about his death (even if it had plot holes)?
