Yea he might die. I loved how Magik beat Dr. Strange in AvX, I thought she was a goner.
I hated that issue. Magik should be human again after regaining the rest of her soul. She refuses to return to Limbo and rule it again as she vehemently told to her wold-be demonic liberators from New Mutants #28 series #3. Sounds like Jason Aaron didn't get the memo about her recent developments.
It seems like so many writers don't seem to know what to do with Magik since her powers are constantly changing from one writer to the next and even I'm confused about Magik's real powers or where she stands as to whether or not she got her soul back. I wish that the writers would just stick to whether or not Magik keeps her soul since that would make things easier to understand.
I totally agree with you guys, lack of communication seems like it to me.
