Thanks to Suvok for additional information.
Doc Strange has been revived a couple of times since the Golden Age. Americomics briefly brought him back, before killing him off in Femforce #43 (thanks to Mike Murphy for informing me of this). And Alan Moore has revived him for ABC's Tom Strong comic, renaming him slightly as Tom Strange.
