With Cap gone, Charles getting his head split and god knows who else Marvel will be killing off. What are they thinking?

#2 Posted by Lord Blackbolt (115 posts) - - Show Bio

they killed Professor xavier?

#3 Posted by Captainess Boricua (6731 posts) - - Show Bio

I wish I knew that answer. I'd like to get into the mind of the heads at Marvel, myself. It just seems like they're trying to do anything for the sake of selling comics. But that's the cynical side talking.

X-MEN: LEGACY #210

Written by MIKE CAREY

Penciled by SCOT EATON

Cover by DAVID FINCH

In the wake of Messiah CompleX, there are no X-Men and mutantkind still lies in ruin. With Magneto depowered and Xavier gravely injured, it seems their reign as the preeminent mutants has ended. But neither of these old soldiers is willing to go gentle into that good night, as Exodus learns when he squares off against Xavier on the psychic plane, with the fate of Professor X’s mind at stake.

thanks for clearing that up, i thought he was dead, because of what cyclops said regarding their being no more x-men

i will tell you this, i thought the art was horrible in chapter 13. i wish they would have kept the same artist, it was hard to stay interested for me because of how sloppy it was.

Lol this reminds me of the JI Joe animated movie, when instead of killing the lead character they just say off-screen that he's in a coma, lol.

Only in the Ultimate Universe, and even in that universe, he was only captured by Cable and taken to the future, but the X-Men and the rest of the world believe him dead.

Xavier's not dead.

Maybe Black Bolt (doubt it). Seeing at the one was a skrull, wheres the real one? Guess we can just say he is MIA instead of deceased.

#19 Posted by Andferne (38808 posts) - - Show Bio

Until they make it clear all we can do is guess. I could see them just killing off Electra this way, but do not think they would have BB go out this way. Saying that though, thier recent track record could very well mean thier both dead, so who knows.

And Onyxx died during the Necrosha invasion... and I'm still in denial about Ariel.

@xerox-kitty: Wasn't it Fever Pitch? I remember him self-detonating and Arch-Angel having to take to the skies with somebody (could have been Laura) to get them away from the blast.  
 
Ariel...that death was cheap for me. Very death for death's sake.

@xerox-kitty: I can't remember, either. Just checked the trade page though and Fever Pitch is listed, so it could be him. Death as well as great story telling and awesome art. Choi...he and Sonia make one heck of a team.    
 

It was him. :P

 

 When was that? Was it during Siege?

Then I found out Drax died.

So, yeh, what happened with Herc? I haven't read much with him, but I always found him pretty hilarious when I have seen him.
