So he was brought back at least three times just to be re-killed each time? Seems kind of, how should I say, pointless? Trademark law sucks huh?

Yep Trademark laws can stink at times.

They need to publish a book titled Captain Marvel to retain the trademark, but every now and then Mar-Vell must appear in some capacity it seems.

Now Cosmic Powers unlimited #1 when he was brought back by Thanos with the Reality Gem made sense. Marv made it clear that even though he somewhat misses being alive, he believes that his time is done and does not desire a second chance at life and that some things in the universe are not meant to be tampered with such as Thanos wanting to use the Reality Gem to warp reality so that Death would love him, or using it to bring Marv back as a test of its power. Thanos agreed with Marv, though I am sure there was some reluctance in that agreement and sent him back to the hereafter.

So I can understand Marv wanting to stay dead and that is the reason he hasn't returned permanately, but Marv is being selfish with that attitude as well and likely doesn't realize it.

Even in death he is still a Protector of the Universe and by staying dead he has essentially abandoned the responsibility which is now held by Wendel Vaughn/Quasar. Adam Warlock of course steps up to save the cosmos and so did Richard Ryder as Nova until he was stupidly replaced.

However his lover Elysius has never gotten over losing him, they wanted to have kids before his disease manifested and she used his DNA after death to create two kids both of whom would have benefited greatly from being trained and raised by Marv.

When the Phoenix revived Marv, Marv could sense Thanos laughing at him as he was revived and pulled from the realm of death, and it was Thanos that helped Marv to accept his end and to stay dead. Marv stated he didn't miss being alive but also didn't seem to mind being back until he divined that only he could have his homeworld from the Phoenix even though it meant throwing away his second chance at life.

heck, if they wanted a good person to host the power of the Pheonix, Mar-Vell could handle it thanks to his inner peace and cosmic awareness.

At this point, unless Secret War truly IS a reboot of the MU, I don't see Marv coming back until some writers and editors with a good story and enough backbone bring him back.

I do think that on one of the Secret Wars postes there was an image of a Kree Captain....
