He died for kind of a stupid reason, but the X-Men are always making sacrifices. Banshee never seemed like an important character to me anyway.

What a way to go, he got hit by a plane. I told that to someone (can't remember who) and they didn't believe me.

It was a stupid, pointless death for a stupid, pointless mini-series.

Banshee sucked, and he died like he lived.

#7 Posted by Sling Shot (3560 posts) - - Show Bio

Banshee was an untapped character with stupid high potential. He was potentially James Bond but played by Robert Redford with a versatile potent mutation, but he was also vulnerable, so he had to be smart.

With a character like Banshee I look at what he could be instesd of the mediocrity they made of him; in life as well as death.

If he were in a X movie Ewan Mcgregor should play him.

Too expensive, also, it would be a Scot playing an Irishman, blasphemy in some circles.

Who cares. Banshee was one of those characters that no one would use and rather than have him take up space they got rid of him, thank God.

Thats called, say it with me class, uncreative.

On paper he has elements for great storytelling: cool powers, international agent training, diverse background.

I guess thats not enough today. You gotta have a psionics, healing factor or gadgets tomake it in the big leagues.

Not at the box office. You should check the box office out they got white people playing Native Americans, Indians, Mexicans, all sorts of great stuff.

Sling Shot-

If they wanted to do something creative with him they could have made him a shield agent or something. They thing is it is kind of hard to be sneaky and spy like when your powers will give your position away whenever you use them. How is being able to scream insanily load a cool power?

#15 Posted by Sling Shot (3560 posts) - - Show Bio

Well in the hands of the right writer they can be cool. But that is only one use of his sonic powers. He can scream in frequencies that don't register in the human ear but will knock a person out, cause bowel movements, disintegrate matter etc. Check his character page. He was versatile and dangerous.

You've obviously never heard of Generation X...

Banshee was a great character and his death was pointless and I hate it sooo much. :P

... and you can't convince me otherwise! Lol.

Yeah, I've talked about this before, more reasonably, but, really, how many times do you have to hear that he was a kind and caring mentor to the kids of Generation X, a troubled soul, an experienced international operative, etc... It's particularly sad now that Siryn's a mommy-to-be over in X-Factor. He would've been a Granddad if he'd lived!

Banshee was awesome. If you want to get rid of a useless character, then why didn't they kill off Squirrel girl or any of the practically no named mutants. I mean, they killed a lot of them after M day, but still, bansheee's death was sad. I liked the screaming guy.

Hey, a dead body means nothing. Jason todd was carried out of the explosion and he came back later.

duh. All comic book characters are practically immortal. Captain america has died twelve times already for christ sake. I can only think of two heroe's who have never come back and have practically no chance of coming back.

Banshee..why did he have to die? Well try these....

1.We have Siryn and Blackbolt.
2.The name "Banshee" is usually used to describe a female character.
3.There isn't an mutant based teams who need him.
4.He's lame
5.Not enough people care he's dead.
