I have worn black for pretty much the entirety of my adult life.
I was 'killed' by something within me.
When I came back from the 'dead' I was wearing black.
I wore black for the rest of my life.

Who am I?

To relieve some ambiguity, I only actually die once.

    $\begingroup$ What we usually do is we post the puzzle without any hints first, then if no one gets it after a while you edit the post to add more. I think this has too much information... $\endgroup$ – ffao Mar 31 '16 at 0:10
  • $\begingroup$ Well, I thought that leaving it as is was a little to vauge. I'll comment them out for now. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Mar 31 '16 at 0:11
  • $\begingroup$ *dusts off fingers* there, Hints gone. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Mar 31 '16 at 0:13
  • $\begingroup$ I think the in-puzzle hint comment could also go, and the "relieve" part could either be left out or put in spoilers. Even the quotes might be a bit much. You underestimate the skills of some people here. ;) Even if not, we like to take a bit of time to think about these things. Try a lateral-thinking tag if ambiguity is a part of the puzzle. $\endgroup$ – feelinferrety Mar 31 '16 at 1:42

You're

Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader

I have worn black for pretty much the entirety of my adult life.
+ I wore black for the rest of my life.

Obviously...

I was 'killed' by something within me.

Anakin was overcome by the dark side

When I came back from the 'dead' I was wearing black.

"No. I am your father."

My guess

The Doctor? from Doctor Who? he dies, but revives all the time, just a wild guess.

  • $\begingroup$ Good guess, but no. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Mar 31 '16 at 0:08
