The New York Daily News broke the news that Professor X is going to be killed in Avengers vs. X-Men #11, on sale TODAY!
As some have predicted, Charles Xavier ends up dead at the hands of Cyclops.
“I got a little teary-eyed when we were scoping out the moment in the room with the series’ writers and editors,” says Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso. “He needed to be the casualty in this story. There’s no more oh-sh– moment that you can bring than having a son killing his father.”
This certainly could have implications following AVX and going into the upcoming Marvel NOW! renumberings, but knowing that death is a revolving door in the Marvel (and DC) Universe, how long before we see Professor X: Rebirth?
