Actually, the gill man survives in the first two movies. This is evidenced by the fact that even though the last scene shows him sinking, apparently dead, it is never made absolutely clear he is. Also, the fact he is alive in the same lagoon in "Revenge of the Creature" and brought back to civilization, shows he survived the injuries from the first film. No dialog indicates that he is not the same creature, or that there was more than one Gill man. Same as with the ending of "Revenge of the Creature", where the last scene is of him sinking again, this time in the waters of Florida. When "The Creature walks among us" begins, the creature is still in Florida waters when he is captured again. This proves that in the first two films, the Gill man actually survives in the end. In all truth, it can be assumed that he doesn't not survive in the end of "Walks among us", because it ends with the creature entering the ocean, trying to return to the world he knew, but because he no longer has his gills at this point, the audience can draw the conclusion that he ended up going to his death by drowning.

... because we all stand between the jungle and the stars, at a crossroads. I think we better decide what brings out the best in humankind, and what brings out the worst, because it's the stars or the jungle.

Why Oh Why do so many fans never let go of an original film and denounce any improvement that might be made? While the original film is a classic of the fifties, I think that was purely because it was the first (a distinct advantage most first films in a series have!)
The second film was only "okay," and was a rehash of the first one. But why I like #3 so much is due to the daring change made to the Creature himself. He looks truly menacing and powerful when he becomes a land being, but more importantly he becomes much more human-like. We get to see how docile he truly is, and how it turns out to be that destructive animal known as Man who really makes him wild.
When the Creature DOES get wild in this one, he's a REAL killing machine! The rampage he goes on in this movie still packs a jolt for me.
