even though we have had some "dead is dead" rules broken (ghost rider, thor, loki, and valkyrie don't count) we all have to admit it's still nothing compared to the amount of times and how many characters died in the 616 verse. Literally about every single major and side character in Marvel has died at least once and then come back. I wonder if people get an award for dying and coming back 20+ times?

I don't mind breaking the rule as long as it furthers the quality of the book / universe. But it's not something to do lightly
The best way to think of "Dead Means Dead" in the UU is that it's meaning directly relates to the "realness" of the universe itself. If it were the real world then all deaths would be 100% final, but since it's a world where aliens and supernatural phenomena exist then death is slightly more lenient. I think it's at a comfortable place in between 616 and real life; Most deaths have meaning and are permanent and, for the most part, the ones who come back have a believable explanation.

Ghostbusters • Injustice: Gods Among Us • Invincible • Invincible Universe • The Manhattan Projects • Superior Spider-Man • Ultimate Spider-Man • Ultimates • Ultimate X-Men • The Walking Dead
As for what we've seen though, Wanda makes sense due to the nature of her powers and the fact that she seemed to be doing something back when she was shot. Madrox was definitely a case of it being broken since it was explained that only by going after the original would the copies be disappear. So unless Logan didn't kill Madrox prime (which in that situation wouldn't make sense) they broke the rule.
Holding out for a Peter/Miles team up.
Green Goblin, Madrox, and Captain Britain and the rest of the EDI have all been resurrected since Ultimatum.
Dead never meant dead.
As long as they let the writer tell the right story. I'm good with who ever is coming back
i have a beautiful filthy mind
Mystique... Though she was dead too. I think it's all Jean Grey (Grant) using everybody. Tian, Fury, the X-men, Ultimate X. Maybe even Richards. A grand scheme.
