    It's still indicative of an endemic disregard for younger characters, and a view that they're disposable for the sake of the old guard.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Is he a young character? Either in terms of age, or even in terms of how long established he is. Hasn't he been around as a character for over 30 years? Sure he was in the New Mutants in the early or mid 80s (I may well be wrong there though).

    Who knows about in-universe age these days. And for some reason I didn't think he first appeared as far back as he did.

    The only thing this is indicative of is writers still (erroneously) thinking and using "death" as shock/emotional value for moving a story forward.

    Big Joe is correct...he was initially Lila Cheney's body guard/master of her house back in the day when the NM went after the Gladiators for kidnapping Amara and Roberto.

    It's amazing isn't it, but I reckon he first appeared not too long after Rogue joined the X-Men, so he was around well before Gambit, Longshot, Psylocke (except in Marvel UK), Cable, Deadpool etc. I dare say he's never really been top of anybody's list, but he has been a fairly long running, well established character. There have been some good and interesting explorations of him as well, and I don't think he's dead.

    You’d sort of be wrong. He and Multiple Man have been in my top five for decades.

    Excellent, I also think he's a good character when well written, and he has been well written at times over the years. Multiple Man, if I'm right again has been around as a character longer than Storm, Colossus and Nightcrawler. I'm hoping he's going to get back to being used as more than just a bit of comic relief to be honest, because he actually deserves better.

    Does he? based on what? I like SG too but it's not like any of his storylines will ever be a real 'barn burner'

    I was thinking Multiple Man more than Strong Guy in that post, but yes you're right that issue was great.
