Who Was the Super Villain to Come Back From the Dead?

In Action Comics #19 (by Jerry Siegel, Joe Shuster and Paul Cassidy), cover-dated December 1939, the Ultra-Humanite manipulates a plague but dies in the end...

In the next issue, Clark Kent helps save an actress' life...

But she is cold to him the next day (it is kind of weird just how put off he is that she isn't fawning over him after he saved her life)...

And then she kidnaps all of her movie star pals and holds them for ransom!

When Superman catches up to them, he realizes that Ultra-Humanite has had his mind saved and placed into Delores' body!

So there ya go, there's no mistaking THAT for not a real death and then a weird resurrection.

Thanks for the suggestion, Brian!
