The news came across my desk yesterday afternoon, but we didn’t spoil it.
Now it doesn’t matter as Marvel released the news about the death in today’s Avengers Vs. X-Men #11 themselves earlier today.
What happens is Cyclops kills Professor X.
Brian Michael Bendis wrote the issue and spoke with Marvel.com about it.
Knowing what my plans were post AvX [with ALL-NEW X-MEN], the death of Charles Xavier made every scene I have coming up for the next year more passionate, more interesting and more controversial. I was very happy that we voted to whack the man.
A small group of us getting together to decide to murder Charles Xavier is all sounding very Godfather-ish. [Laughs]
By our count this is at least the third time Professor X has “died.”
So how long before he comes back?!
