What characters have you seen that seemed really promising and made a few appearances, then never appeared again? Or what characters are underused?

does Chamber count?

he was used a lot but after Decimation he just disappeared =/

also, there's Synch...he too was seen in a lot of issues but they shouldn't have killed him...

p.s. what does a lot count as, I mean in perspective Synch has been in very few comics next to other Marvel characters but next to the comics I read, he's been in a ton

But Dust was just in a recent X-Men story arc.

My number one pick is (ahem, drum roll please.......) Ambrose Chase. In the short time he existed in the planetary storyline he became one of my all time favorites.

all the characters of Planetary are underused, they need a new series...or for their current one to finish...

he doesn't exist because "that other thing" doesn't want him to.

have you read new warriors?

pixelized said:

nope. but I never said the series had bad writing. I said it was bad writing to turn Chamber into Decibel, to kill Chamber and have a new character Decibel...but to ruin Chamber by making him Decibel is what upsets me
