So I heard that in #25, he "quit" the team. What exactly happened? Do we think he'll be back? What do you guys think is the future of Fantomex?

#2 Posted by mavfan626 (4121 posts) - - Show Bio

I think he quit because Psylocke quit. I don't know what Marvel going to do with him but like be appearing in a few comics here and there, a specially in the X books. It would be great if he got a mini series though he is a great character.

Do you think him leaving is actually a big misdirection? Maybe to get some heat off of him or the X-Force after icing child-Apocalypse?

And a mini series would be great, he's great to read about.

I still would wager that the two haven't actually left the team, but if it does he's may end up in Limbo if Marvel doesn't do something with him in the next two years, which is sad for the character.

He'll be back. Mark my words.

#6 Posted by Morpheus_ (29873 posts) - - Show Bio
He left because of Psylocke's departure and everything that ensued between them the night before. And no, neither one of them is permanently going to be off the team.

Opinion or Fact?

I believe he's on a future cover, so no, he's not gone. Though, Remender said someone was going to die soon, and it's most likely Psylocke or Fantomex.

Havn't you read the issue? They're clearly not leaving for good, it's just like when Fantomex 'abandoned the team' during the final battle with Archangel. Someone will be dying soon though, my guess is Fantomex as he's the only one missing from the solicits.

There's nothing in the issue that says on way or the other, actually.

I see. I tend to keep away from Solicits. If someone's going to die soon though, I'd hope it was Nightcrawler AoA.

I hate solicitations mostly, plus I can't be bothered to look at them. But that's what I thought, I highly doubted they would actually leave, especially in such a manner, though the thought was fun to entertain.

He was revealed on the cover of issue 28, so he'll at least be sticking around for another three issues, but yes, he did leave because Betsy left and what happened between them. Definitely not permanent though, considering the condition Logan, Kurt and Wade were in. They're gonna need some help.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh ok, was wondering what/who that was behind Logan lol. Wonder why they censored it though.

#18 Posted by ragdollpurps (15572 posts) - - Show Bio

@HotSauceCommittee: Well, the cover of #27 shows him captured by the Brotherhood, so he might be almost killed. They probably wanted to have it be a cliff hanger, which confuses me as to why the uncensored one was leaked.

#19 Edited by evilvegeta74 (4521 posts) - - Show Bio

Who is that materializing in the background? I see now!

#20 Posted by HotSauceCommittee (345 posts) - - Show Bio

@ragdollpurps: I suppose, all a bit silly if he's going to be on the cover anyway. Kinda bummed though, thought it was going to be Fantomex to die and had come to terms with it, now I'm not so sure, will be so mad if Rick kills Psylocke off.

#21 Posted by evilvegeta74 (4521 posts) - - Show Bio

Didn't they just make an action figure for this guy, that makes no sense if they were just gonna turn around and kill the guy off like that.

#22 Posted by ragdollpurps (15572 posts) - - Show Bio

@HotSauceCommittee: Yeah, that's what I thought. I'll cry if either Fantomex or Psylocke get killed. I never know what Rick has up his sleeves, but I honestly hope it's Nightcrawler that dies. He should die finishing his mission, because then he'll have no purpose and there will be room for 616 Nightcrawler to come back. >.>

#23 Posted by HotSauceCommittee (345 posts) - - Show Bio

@ragdollpurps: I'd like it to be Nightcrawler too, don't dislike him, actually warming up to him these last few issues but he's still my least favourite. Psylocke seemed the most likely to me with the way things are going but I just realised she's in the revamped lineup for X-Men once the new writer takes over so maybe she'll be fine, time will tell I guess.

#24 Posted by ragdollpurps (15572 posts) - - Show Bio

@HotSauceCommittee: My sentiments exactly. It'd be stupid to kill Psylocke off, especially since Rick just spent the entirety of UXF fixing her characterization. But you never know with Remender. Not until issue hits stands, lol.

I really doubt it's misdirection but it seems that he is appearing in up coming issues anyway..

@ragdollpurps:I think it would be stupid to kill her off, but Remender said in a interview that he was going to kill off someone's who he's grown to love. I'm hoping it's Fantomex, but I get a feeling he's going to kill someone who's impoirtant, and since it can't be Wolverine of Deadpool, I'm thinking with Psylocke.

This is true. This action figure was a huge success, and he is relatively "fresh meat" in the Marvel universe, his is growing. I think from a business/marketing standpoint, he should stay, and also just because he is my favorite superhero, I think he should stay.

And I didn't do much research, but when Remender said someone is dying, did he mean someone on the X-Force? Or just someone in the story? Like a villain or something?

I'm just glad AoA Nightcrawler stayed.

what makes you think that? 
He still has a number of target that he himself wishes to take out. 
And he gave no indication of any interest of leaving in the latest issue. He seemed happy to stay

Allow me to clarify, because that came out nothing like I intended into it. I mean that I'm not seeing him having a long-term role in the Marvel U. Especially when Kurt comes back.

#32 Posted by ragdollpurps (15572 posts) - - Show Bio

@Reality: I hope it's Kurt that gets killed off, but I hope he kills AoA Blob and whoever else in the process. That way 616 Kurt can come back.

I don't want AoA Kurt to be killed off, but since its been announced one of them dies, then I'd hope it either that or Deathlok.

#34 Posted by ragdollpurps (15572 posts) - - Show Bio

@Reality: That's how I feel. I like everyone but them the least. Solicitations for issue 29 came out and mentioned Fantomex, so hopefully he doesn't die.

#35 Posted by Reality (135 posts) - - Show Bio

If that was as random as I think it was, then t'was somewhat funny.

But,I think you're fretting over her. I'm pretty sure she's safe.

No. Stuff you should know about Re: I don't read solicits/interviews unless Dern actually explicitly tells me. I knew there was going to be a brotherhood, but I don't know who's on the team.

So, I'm assuming Daken isn't there. Or is the new brotherhood basically Creed and his bunch of Wolverine hating hoes?

#44 Posted by ragdollpurps (15572 posts) - - Show Bio

@Morpheus_: It'd be Psylocke & Wolverine vs. Creed, Psylocke vs Shadow King, and Fantomex vs. Mystique & Skinless Man. They've all got beef.

@Reality: Okay.

He wouldn't work with those guys anyway. Unless the reward was sleeping with Mystique or something.

Ah, right.

He killed himself to spite Logan, right? I read that somewhere.

@ragdollpurps: I'd love to see Psylocke gutting Creed. And I suggested Fantomex vs Creed because it's offbeat. 
 
Fantomex doesn't have a beef with Mystique, though. They staged that.

I'm not sure whether she likes him or not, it was unclear. But it's Mystique, I doubt she has any qualms about killing anyone. But I gather she'd want payback from Wolverine. He killed her, after all.
