Which member of X-Factor will die?

It has been revealed for X-Factor #227 that one team mate will be killed: http://marvel.com/comic_books/issue/37946/x-factor_2005_227

So who will it be that kicks the bucket and will they even stay dead with Layla's power?

I think that the woman of X-Factor are safe from being killed, because there are 4 of them to the 5 guys on the team and with Havok and Polaris joining the team after Regenesis killing one of the men will allow the team to become gender balanced with 5 of either gender. Of the men, Madrox is safe, because he appears in X-Factor #229 as a witness to his and Layla's death (http://dewaynes-world.popshop.comixology.com/item/OCT110682/X-Factor-229-Xregg). Strong Guy is also safe because he was already killed on a recent case and later brought back by Layla. That leaves Rictor, Shatterstar, and Longshot. Ric won't be killed because he just got his powers back in Children's Crusade and that would make his getting his powers back redundant. So my prediction for who will die is that it's going to be either Shatterstar or Longshot, with odds favouring Longshot because his powers are being blocked somewhat by Bloodbath.

Another possiblility is that Pip 'ports in just in time to get killed, but I don't think that this is very likely.

However, I also believe that Layla will be forced to use her powers to bring the team mate back, which fits with all 11 characters on the cover of X-Factor #230 (http://i.newsarama.com/images/XMenRegenesis-gold-final-massive.jpg).

With all the members appearing on the Regenesis cover, I don't know who they could possibly be killing. My thought was Pip 1) because he isn't one the cover and 2) because he is a member but he is disposable.

I am pretty sure know. Since Havok and Polaris are coming to X-Factor. It's Jaime Madrox. He will go away for a couple of issues!!!

Jordama,

I am sorry to break your bubble. It's going to happen.... of course is going to be dupe. Or maybe PAD wants to explore what happens if Madrox prime is killed. Anyway. He dies. Who is your guest for next wednesday? The team is really big now, two more is crazy.

@papad1992: Pip is not relevant. He is involved but he is not worth of attention for any regular readers. It has to be someone with more weight and depth.... About the January cover...... is a TEASER. Did Emma Frost went with Wolverine in Regenesis? No , it was in the cover...right. Did you see How big Havok and Polaris are in January Cover. Madrox was so little. Who is going to be calling the shoots?

I tried desperately to get the spoiler tag to work. it refused.

Issue 230 main cover :(

There is always a good chance that it is Laya and Madrox leaves because he is so distraught.

Pip has a beef with Layla. Who is he working for? It seemed it was Agamemnon but I am not 100% sure. I think he works for Damian Tryp. He is the easy choice. I do not think He dies at all.

Tomorrow is the day that we know who lives and who dies.

I really hope its not Rictor, that guy's cool and he just got his powers back.
