A new convergence will occur, are is that di–vergence?

@BattlinMurdock: That sounds about right, there gonna come back eventually who cares?
Luminus - 11/30/2012, 4:07 PM
Stop wasting time with deaths. No one is falling for it. Just critically injure someone, like Ms. Marvel in the 90's X-Men cartoon series, and have them admitted into the hospital for an indeterminate amount of time. That way, when they come back, it won't be so far fetched.

Sometimes these time travel stuff gives me a headache.

And the Bendis destroys comments begin. I love you Brian...
RedandBlue - 11/30/2012, 4:12 PM
Lol, as soon as he says "dies".. Complete silence.
RedandBlue - 11/30/2012, 4:18 PM
@ IM53

Yeah, but it looks like they have bigger plans for him.
616 - 11/30/2012, 4:21 PM
I hope if anyone does for they will be replaced by their duplicate self. #beasty
jimpinto24 - 11/30/2012, 4:28 PM
I say Bobby Drake or Hank McCoy.
RedandBlue - 11/30/2012, 4:28 PM
@IM, I'm with a lot of people when I say Wolverine should be the one to do it.

It'd be awesome to read and watch that.
JamesAsAlways - 11/30/2012, 4:33 PM
I don't care who dies, as long as they don't revert Beast back to his old form, I love the feline form, it just looks so much cooler, and I know I'm gonna get hate and I'm gonna get people telling me I clearly haven't read the comics long enough or whatever, but X-Men was a large part of my childhood, and Beast became a lot better for me when he became feline, before he kinda looked like a blue Wolverine, with the horned hair and the mutton chops, just didn't do it for me.
marvel72 - 11/30/2012, 4:33 PM
all new x-men is really good,i loved how they took a panel from the 60s issue & brought into all new x-men 1.not sure which x-man will die but it would definitely f*ck up the timeline if they send the x-men back.

love the x-men,the reason i'm a comic fan today.started reading my dads early claremont issues,first comic i brought was uncanny x-men 205.
CaptainObvious - 11/30/2012, 4:38 PM
Even though this is off topic, there is a reason why The Walking Dead is one of the few comics I buy monthly. When a character dies, they stay dead forever.

Death hardly matters in comics anymore. Nobody rests in peace forever. How long did Bucky stay dead after Fear Itself?
BANEofExistence - 11/30/2012, 4:46 PM
Comic deaths r starting to piss me off... They always come back for some bs reason. I liked dcs blackest night where they came back basically as zombies and the few characters to be fully ressurected had a goal to complete to keep life... But most ressurections are lame and instant. How long was human torch deceased for?
BANEofExistence - 11/30/2012, 4:48 PM
Buckys died twice and as stated above, he was resurrected like a month after fear itself... I do feel some are necessary though (Jason Todd's resurrection for example was a really good thing!)
RedandBlue - 11/30/2012, 4:49 PM

You just gotta get Magneto away from Cy, lol..
marvel72 - 11/30/2012, 4:57 PM
@ im53

cheers mate,do you remember the first comic you brought?
CorndogBurglar - 11/30/2012, 5:12 PM
@ jamesasalways

Im with you man. I love Beast's feline form too.

@everyone else

You know why no one is going to kill off Cyclops? Because writers love writing him. Love him or hate him, he's one of the most complex characters in Marvel, and he's had almost as many tragedies happen to him as Spider-Man or Daredevil. He's a very rich character and has a lot that writers can play off of.

I remember Newsarama did a story a few years back about the x-men and they asked a lot of writers from the who their favorite x-man to write was, and almost all of them said Cyclops. For the exact reason i just said. So im not just pulling that out of my ass.

Bendis killing a

Now how is he going to sneak Luke Cage on one of the X-teams? Because Bendis loves him some Luke Cage...
beane2099 - 11/30/2012, 6:01 PM
Had my doubts about this, but I had to check it out if only for Immonen's art work. The book is pretty awesome so far. I'm a fan. Maybe that feeling will change after I've seen the story unfold. But until then, I'm on board.
LoudLon - 11/30/2012, 6:50 PM
Being a child of the 70s and 80s, that's the Beast look I prefer. I've never liked this Cowardly Lion-looking silliness he has now.
SolidSnake007 - 11/30/2012, 7:26 PM
I hope it's Wolverine. No seriously I do. Overused to the point of ridiculousness, won't matter since they are just going to reboot everything anyways. It would be a "shocker" and out of left field. Cyke should be the one to do it. Turn this Cyke into the new Magneto for the younger generation. Cyke and Magneto's Brotherhood of mutants. Old vs. New. at least it would be something different for a change.
xXkryptoniteXx - 11/30/2012, 7:28 PM
"One of them dies, what happens next?"

They always comeback to life
ATrueHero1987 - 11/30/2012, 7:32 PM
Look Bendis, I'm excited for you being on All New X-Men & Uncanny X-Men but STOP killing off people(because we all know they will come back).

Also, what @corndogburglar said is true, Cyclops really is a complex character. I really liked his character since Astonishing X-Men & House Of M.
SolidSnake007 - 11/30/2012, 7:45 PM
Wolverine's death would be the only one to have any gravity to it. It should be Wolvie.
DividedIStand80 - 11/30/2012, 8:46 PM
Death is just a story arc now.
NextHero08 - 11/30/2012, 11:53 PM
so were referring to it as his "feline" look? That sounds so...cute...Beast or Feline-Man, hmmmm....
xeno - 12/1/2012, 2:07 AM
That photo of Bendis on the front page is terrifying.
simpleman - 12/1/2012, 2:32 AM
Please let it be wolverine.
Lightsplasher - 12/1/2012, 2:45 AM
People who read All New X-Men knows that it will be Beast
AC1 - 12/1/2012, 4:05 AM
Wolverine won't die, he's the lead/title in like 3 different comics under Marvel NOW.

As for Beast's new(ish) look, I actually kind of prefer it too, if only because I saw him as just an overweight blue version of Wolverine when I was younger.
xstryker - 12/1/2012, 8:26 AM
Wow, he's run out of ideas already? That was fast.
Originator2000 - 12/1/2012, 10:48 AM
I got my money on The Beast and/or Cyclops.
KingLing - 12/1/2012, 12:29 PM
I love Bendis's style of writing but I hate that he feels the only way to gain any kind of emotional relevance in a comic is to kill a character off. It's a cheap tactic for a writer who can't see the pain that could go on in someone's life other than through the death of another character.
Durango95 - 12/1/2012, 8:43 PM
I hate Bendis. What a [frick]tard. I wish for once they would kill someone and they would stay dead. I stopped reading comics altogether cos its gotten so stupid.
neuromonitor - 12/2/2012, 10:04 AM
@ KingLing...

get a grip and take your personal struggle to understand 'The Power of Now' back to your living room... this is a comics forum about one of the most violent group off characters around.. anything goes, thats how its always been, thats comics.. get over it.. you're gonna have to give that teet sometime
DRMidNite - 12/3/2012, 3:45 PM
Uncle Fester!
goo - 12/4/2012, 7:15 AM
We've run out of ideas... hmm kill a hero!
Sasquatch123 - 12/6/2012, 2:33 PM
Bendis should be fired for turning marvel into late 80's early 90's DC he and his crew have turned the house of ideas into the house of bad ideas,every month there's somehing going on which makes us the readers have to buy more fillers ,remember when a cross over ment something or a mini series ment something to the devlopment how many Thor #1's do i have to buy How many times do you have to push wolverine down our throats ,how many times can u kill Xaiver and humilate Cyclops or kill Peter Parker I'm done Bendis blows he's the Bruce Timm of marvel arghhhhhh
avengersleagueofjusticeforamerica - 12/6/2012, 2:41 PM
All new xmen is the best xmen title in years and by years I mean since the phalanx covenant and messiah complex.
