Nightcrawler goes down

The latest death of a character nobody asked for: Nightcrawler is the victim, in X-Force #26, a decade after Colossus - and Psylocke - were subjected to this overused nonsense.

The story where Colossus was killed back in 2000 was one of the crappiest ever written. So too in fact was the story in X-Treme X-Men where Psylocke was slain (and she actually took it worse than he did. Sometimes it seems like more women in comics are killed at the hands of villains than men are, if those 2 stories are any suggestion). Both deaths were reversed about 3 years later. Unfortunately, as this clearly shows, Marvel hasn't learned their lesson, nor have they understood that if they're going to resort to deaths as a sales gimmick, it only cheapens all drama, and makes death grow tired even faster.

Amazes me that people are still fooled into buying these phony 'death' issues. Brainless fanbois.


God...Damn it!

Headdesk. What kory said.

You're basing that conclusion on two random X-deaths? You need a wider sampling than that for anything to be suggested.

Psylocke's death was conceived as being temporary. Her return would've happened much sooner, but it was delayed by Marvel deciding "Dead means dead" in the middle of the story.

I study your all contain it is really very lovely, look for some relevant details here.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
