    Just have a mass ressurection and turn the 5 thing into a one time ritual and bring all of them back using but some power source or something as a way to explain why it can't be done again.
    Well we all know the nature of superhero comic books are cylical and we all know that eventually Marvel is going to make the very wrong decision to get rid of the Resurrection protocols and then we'll be right back to killing off lesser-known / popular characters for shock value and keeping them dead / forgotten for years.

    As for the X-Men looking less capable, I'd say getting dropped by every generic human with widely available power nullifying tech does that more than any deaths that have happened.

    But they're not used for shock any more. That's the point. It's what makes the resurrection protocols great.

    Writers need to think of other stakes. Some struggle, others don't.

    Yes, they are.Deaths have skyrocketed in Krakoan age and it's 95% for shock which it doesn't even have.

    Most struggle, and few don't.

    They sure are! That's the drawback to having so many darn characters to choose from. That being said I very much prefer having all the characters in the toy box ready and waiting to be utilized by writers rather than writers wanting to use a lesser known character and being told no by editorial because that character was killed off for shock value in an event seven years ago and forgotten about.

    Christian's finally back.
    I was trying to do too much and not doing any of it as well as I could. But I've had a change of mind... though not everyone shall enjoy it. I will.

    I have to agree. Everett's return has been one of my favorite things about the protocols.

    I figure they appeared less skillful because too many writers aren't actually interested in writing actual teams, degrading many books into "The One I Want To Write and Some Others That Were Forced On Me, So They Will All Be Written As Bleeding Losers."
    Dark does not mean deep.

    I think it's fine to be happy with the Resurrection Protocols bringing back a lot of fan favorites while not caring for them as an ongoing element in X-Men comics.

    All of those are not immortal and all of them have been seen old versions except Mystique.


    If the only xmen that centuries in the future is still alive and young is Rogue, but I doubt very much will be included in that book, this was in particular the horrible treatise, it takes a Mike Carey again to remember all the skills by Rogue.

    Mark: OMEGA.

    Lauren: SINISTER.

    Drew: CEREBRO.

    Sarah: THE SPARK.

    Anita: LIMBO.

    Jordan: DESTINY. "

    Lauren was the one who said Immortal X-men.

    Ofc. it can be two different titles but pointing it out nonetheless
    Love that Sinister hint. He's been even more eccentric than usual lately. Whatever happens at the end of Inferno, I'm sure he'll find a way to exploit it. Can't wait to see how that unfolds.

    And don’t forget in the Powers of X future I believe it was mentioned that Sinister’s Chimera breeding pits or whatever were on Mars… and Ewing’s team is presently based on Mars… so… just thinking out loud here, but could Immortal X-men be the title of the Storm and Cable led X-men title that replaces SWORD by Al Ewing? With Sinister as a primary antagonist. Hmm…
