Prepare to get memed on.

Really? He was pretty much pushed out of the X-Men books long before they killed him off because they really ruined him. He really wasn't be used at all when they decided to kill him.

Wolverine's only been dead for like a year, and we've already got Old Man Logan replacing him. And Thor isn't dead.

>>77949439
We've got Teen Jean, so she might as well not be dead
>>
Richard Rider.
And I doubt that'll change anytime soon
>>
Eh, he'll eventually come back. Not the first time we thought Chuck had died for him to come back later. He's still relevant with his brain being some fucking trophy or something
>>
>>77950417
Last we heard of it, Charles Xavier's brain was still in the Red Skull's body. Last we saw the Red Skull he was in a bondage chair in Dr Doom's dungeon.
Given the fact that after the time-skip Castle Doom has been in ruins for months and Doom only came back recently, I can only assume the Red Skull is either dead or escaped

Ice man, because after what they did I don't see him coming back anytime soon

Is nova iconic?
>>
Guys like Xavier should just be killed off and remain dead for good. He is too OP and boring to be in any team ups with more popular heroes like Wolverine and Spider-Man. Seriously, his power is such that he is the angel summoner and the rest of the x-men are a bunch of BMX bandits.
>>
>>77949319
I didn't think Abomination would stay dead for so long.

But somehow they've made no attempt to bring him back after Red Hulk murdered him. Just make copies, like that Vibranium robot or that clone which had no brain.
>>
>>77951921
It's even weirder because since his death in 2008, the Abomination has been in a movie (and was almost in a second movie), multiple cartoons and multiple videogames.
It's baffling that despite his presence in other media Marvel can't be bothered to bring him back already
>>
>>77951867
Not really. But for some people he's kinda important.
>>
>>77952611
Every character has fans.
>>
>>77950012
Rather him be dead than memes on by Bendis any further.
>>
>>77951801
R.I.P. best Spider.
>>
>>77950616
Until we see Chuck's brain destroyed some way he will probably be back
>>
>>77952990
I think we actually saw Charles Xavier's soul in heaven in Amazing X-Men
>>
>>77951867
I love Richard, but I don't consider him iconic.
He was B-list at best. Still, I didn't expect him to be gone this long.
His 40th anniversary is next year. Marvel probably won't do anything for him, but it'd be nice if they mentioned in some way other than "Haha! He died! Please support Sam."
>>
>>77951855
Holy Kek. Holy fucking Kek. This is the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. Marvel is such a shit fucking company.

Stane, Mandarin, Justin Hammer

Also not exactly dead, but, I'm surprised Kingpin has gone for so long with disuse ever since Superior Spider-Man happened in the comics. Also I'm surprised Bullseye is still trapped and not being used.
>>
>>77953047
Didn't he become a A lister when he absorbed all of the nova force?
>>
>>77949439
>>77949521

>We've got shitty evil Mary Sue Jean, so regular Jean might as well not be dead

The only way the current storyline can be redeemed is if they reveal these O5 are from a parallel universe and this Jean is actually Maddie or something.
>>
>>77953194
Kingpin showed up in the "Spider-Man: Family Matters" OGN and later in the final story arc of Mark Waid's Daredevil run.
As for Bullseye, he was restored to full health in Elektra's last solo series. Since nobody read, people were surprised to see him back to normal in Secret Wars and wrongly assumed it was a mistake.
>>
>>77953282
That's when he became B-list. He was C-list before that.
I feel like he could have been A-list if Gunn didn't hate him and allowed him to be in the movie with all his glory, rather than excluding him and making Novas worse than fucking Paul Blart.
>>
>>77952685
Except for Jack of Hearts
>>
>>77953378
He could have been A-list had DnA not decide to kill him at the peak of his popularity.

At that point, Marvel Cosmic was universally beloved, and Richard was in the Secret Avengers and the writer had plans for him.

He could have been the 10s equivalent to 00s-era Luke Cage - a C-lister who returned from obscurity through a major Avengers role. We could be seeing Richard leading a team by now. But DnA wanted to kill off half of fucking Marvel Cosmic by the end.
>>
>>77949435
>Nobody wants to use Charles Xavier in the comics
>Charles Xavier in the movies has become a black hole that steals more screentime from other characters than Wolverine
>>
>>77953470
The movies at this point are The Adventures of Xavier, Magneto and Mystique with a rotating cast of supporting characters.

I swear this is a stealth adaptation of Carey's X-Men Legacy because that's what that run was. They're just missing Rogue.
>>
>>77953385
Well, I liked him in Marvel Zombies.
>>
>>77953465
They killed off Quill and Thanos too, and look how popular they are now. I blame Bendis for bringing them back with no explanation and excluding Richard.
I feel like if Marvel brings him back, he'll get that surge of popularity that Marvel really wanted Sam have.
>>
>>77953100
Oh anon, that's not even the worst part. I think the next page is him going full stereotype, sadly I don't have it.

Is this offensive to gay people? Iceman was a huge ladies man and has never shown any signs of being homosexual or insecure enough that if he was, he wouldn't have come out. This would offend me if they made a gay character straight like this.

They should pull some more time shenanigans and have Teen Xavier join the young X-Men gang.

Young Xavier and Quentin Quire should hang out together.
>>
>>77954074
Blame Bendis, rumor has it he hated Thanos Imperative because it meant he couldn't use Thanos as the secret weapon during Siege.
Whatever his reason, Bendis retconned the fuck out of Thanos Imperative, shit was straight spiteful.

Seems like they have to be parallel timeline characters now, even if they weren't initially. Perhaps the timeline split after young Scott nearly died that time, and so it's no longer a threat. If so, it would be creatively liberating for the writers, that's for damn sure. It also explains Warren's cosmic power-up not impacting the timeline at all.

Bendis is a meme writer, plain and simple. I don't mean liking him is a meme, I'm talking about how Bendis is the only writer to have given birth to so many memes. 2-3 copypastas, Bendispeak, exploitables, dancing gifs, self inserting, pure waifufagging, and now he has entered /tv/.

Most boards have something to their name. /v/ has Katawa Shoujo, /a/ has copypastas and an anime, /tv/ created a monster, /fit/ managed to get creatine blamed for Supreme Gentleman, and /pol/ is the gift that keeps on giving.

This board will be known for /co/mblr, and Bendis. Don't forget the maximum overshilling Bendis gets here.

Yes, but now we're stuck with Lemire, Hopeless and Bunn, so X-Men is basically just a bunch of white noise interrupted by terrible editorial mandates at the moment.

A boy falls in love with a boy.

Unable to confess, he is gifted with by a deus ex machina with the boy's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls him, and is overjoyed to find out that he has a crush on him as well.

But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to the boy, he only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the boy he called is not the same boy he fell in love with. In fact, he doesn't exist in this universe at all. He is the boy's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of his crush.

Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.

>I honestly didn't think Professor-X would stay dead for so long

If he's not the guy in the wheelchair telling everyone what to do, he's not really that interesting of a character. Psychics are really common, and the only thing Xavier had going for him was he was usually the strongest at mind control and reading minds. But since Emma Frost can do all that shit, and turn in to diamond, AND dress in skimpy clothes, who needs a manipulative bald man?

For a guy who could read minds, he wasn't particularly insightful in how to win their hearts away from fear and prejudice, and it was doubly silly that he wouldn't just rewire someone's brain to not be a mutant hating bigot.

But then, you don't get a lot of decent psychic stories to begin with.
>>
>>77957801
yeah if there was one thing emma needed it was a fucking power up, grant.

For that matter Marvel has entirely to many amoral mind controlling dominatrices, though I guess I'm the only person who thinks that.
>>
>>77957028
No one thinks he deserved to die. Not even fucking Scott.

Still I think it would be interesting for someone to combat the thought of this pure can do no wrong image of him post death because Xavier has done some really stupid shit.

There are not many ways to make this thing pretty solid and give a great punch for character development and all of them, I think, include retconning it into Jean's (voluntary or unconcious) brainwashing.

One of the most fun and development-driving would be an idea of Bobby ruining Northstar's marriage, given he used to have a crush and Iceman's surprisingly big role at the wedding in question - one more point to bullshit in Bendis's explanation. And oly then the truth will be revealed and Iceman's reverting to original self - having broken Jean(-Paul)'s heart and his stable life. Guilt-driving and attempting to put his life on rails could be a point in his reconcilement with himself arc than I can even accept with him emerging as bisexual.

Wouldnt it make a bit more sense to say he was bisexual? But I guess apart from hot women bisexuals don't exist in comics.

Sure it would, but turning character bisexual won't make people talk like it will turning him gay.
