Watch: The 12 most important resurrections in science fiction

In honor of Easter weekend, which celebrates a most glorious resurrection featured in the best-selling book of all time (the Bible, for the record), we thought we'd skip the Easter egg hunt and go straight to putting the spotlight on some of our favorite sci-fi heroes who have risen from the dead.

From Neo in The Matrix to Jon Snow on Game of Thrones to even Fox Mulder on The X-Files (remember?), we give homage to those who re-lived to fight another day.

Check out our holiday video below and rejoice in being alive, whether it's for the first or second time. (There might be some spoilers therein.)
