What if the person buried there was evil to start with? Would they come back as good?

One thing I just noticed about Pet Sematary: all the people buried there were good people in life, and came back as cannibalistic demons.
What if, however, a person buried there was a violent sadistic psychopath in life? Would that person paradoxically come back as a hero?
....firstly-Welcome!.....to your question, that would be a neat twist-however, as was said in the novel-the ground is sour-and in my opinion it would simply twist the already dark of soul to even more horrendous activity.....

What if John Wayne Gacy were buried there? Hard to imagine him coming out any worse.

Or.....what if the townspeople decided to end the Wendigo, and they sent in....Robocop! Could Robocop make it over the deadfall?? Could Robocop handle the Wendigo in a fist fight? Would any of the Wendigo’s tricks work on Robocop and would Robocop become frightened?

Let’s take it one step further, what about skynet? Surely the Wendigo would be no match for an army of T-800 Terminators. Would the Wendigo make a deal with skynet?

Would Predators hunt the Wendigo? Makes sense that they would as the Wendigo would be a worthy kill.

What about xenomorphs? What if the Wendigo fell trap to a xenomorph facehugger? What would a Wendigo-spawned xenomorph look like? Would it have magic powers AND have the ability to spit acid?

What about Batman? Is Solomon Grundy any tougher? Shouldn’t Batman win?

Hasn’t Wolverine actually fought and defeated the Wendigo? Would Wolverine befriend the Wendigo to bring back a deceased Jean Grey? Is that how she became the Dark Phoenix???
