      [quote@neling If Kurt dies in this arc, then I just don't understand what the Marvel editors could be thinking. What I am hearing from my LCS and various comic sites, is that comic book sales are down. Surely, killing Nightcrawler, or any other character with a decent fan following, will, in the long run, only hurt sales.[/quote] You know, sometimes I would wish for a character to return to the books or die and in 6 months to 5 years later, the event happened. I kid you not. I'd be positive about Kurt's life right now, saying he's going to live over and over. Maybe you and other fans can save Kurt and a few others you'd like to see live by wishful thinking.

      [quote@neling [quote@bds197485 Is there anyone in this storyline that you would like to see die?[/quote] Me? No. I don't want to see [i] any[/i] character die. Limbo perhaps, but not die. Nonetheless, if someone [i] has[/i] to die, I hope it is anyone but Kurt, or Wolverine, or Colossus, or Psylocke, or Rachel Summers/Grey, or Rockslide, or Madison Jeffries, or...any other character I enjoy reading. I don't want them to die either.[/quote] I agree. I like the book. Nothing needs to really be changed.

      Even if he has to turn bad to survive, I'll be happy to see him still alive in the comics. If this happens, he can always go back to the X-men sometime.

      If Bishop is to die in this series, dying heroic is the best way to go out of the book, whether it's to save Hope or those spoiler thoughts that should keep quiet till the book's done.

      I wouldn't bet on Bishop dying in (or even gracing the pages of) Second Coming. His 'defeat' in the Cable series seems to keep him as a villain left to chill for a while that could be thawed out again some time later. If not, it's the least he could do to find out he was wrong about hope and come back in time to sacrifice himself to save her (for now I consider him too tainted for any lengthy stint again as a hero, so sacrificing himself would at least redeem him a touch in the X-Men's eyes)

      I'm counting on two deaths in SC. Cable's and Bishop's final breath should draw to a close somewhere along the line. Cyclops will live, but is this his last time leading the X-men? What do any of you think about this?

      [quote@colossalpikachu Does anyone else have the sneaking suspicion that Nightcrawler is gonna croak it during this event? He's not been around as much recently and there's a lot of conversations playing through the X-Men books about having faith, which Kurt has plenty of. Just wondered what other people's thought s were about this.[/quote] I hope Kurt lives on, but I also hope his loyalty at the end of this story is with his team and no other. I hope he's a good guy forever.

      Sorry. I do think that Hope is the reincarnated Jean Grey. I saw one of the upcoming comic book cover that had her and Cable on it with the phoenix image behind them. My mistake.

Just wondered what other people's thought s were about this.[/quote] Always seems natural to fear for Kurt's safety if Wolverine (a self-healer) and Colossus (armored) are his closest friends and battle buddies. They'll always be in the thickest of things and maybe the elf can't dodge forever. They've also (re)introduced a slew of other [more efficient] teleporters too, so even his claim to fame and demand can be waning. I still think that Marvel missed a chance to have something great with him solo (that isn't always in religious tomes) or branched outside the X-teams (the ever clamored for Avengers stint).Maybe it'd be validating to have a trainer from the X-fold help out trainees in Avengers Academy, and who better than a teleporter who'd actually make it plausible to serve on two far-spaced teams? He could even help Wolverine secure the cred he's always lacked for being able to be all over the place, despite NC being the one teleporter with the biggest distance handicap (dude needs an upgrade - like some meditative practice that allows him a further 'port ability a couple times a day. Folley's been spending so much time with the Vanisher's biology, who knows if he can reveal something about NC's limitations from that familiarity?)This whole event is looking high-octane as of these pages; sad to know it has to insist on a body count although I can appreciate the stakes.
