Clearly not satisfied with killing off Charles Xavier in Avengers vs. X-Men, Brian Bendis has hinted that one of the original 5 may be about to die
in his All-New title:
The writer hinted that one of the original five X-Men could die in the new Marvel NOW! title. [...]
"My biggest fear about becoming an X-Men writer is that I had done a lot of stuff to the X-Men universe without being an X-Men writer.
"Like House of M, I gave Wolverine his memories back, I killed Charles Xavier. I know it shows a lot of destruction, but to me it showed a lot of love and affection for the X-Men."
Nope. All he's doing is confusing cruelty with caring, just as was the case with his take on the Avengers. And why would he be afraid of doing all the horrible stuff he did if he had no qualms about subjecting the Avengers to any and all the crap he did?
The ongoing Marvel Comics series centres around Beast's actions to bring young versions of the founding superheroes into the present.
"What if one of them dies?" said Bendis. "What happens then?"
Answer: we don't even bother reading the story to find out. All that does is give Bendis an excuse to keep on with his terrible ideas.
