7 Epic Comic Book Deaths That Deserve Far More Attention

Child Reincarnation of Apocalypse ‘Uncanny X-Force #4’
This is just straight cold-blooded murder music. The setup is simple. Apocalypse was coming back and X-Force had to take him out. However, he was reincarnated as a young child (looked about 8 or 11). The questions then became, “Well, should we raise him to be better? Should we kill him? Do we have the right to—” **bong bong bong**. Yo, Fantomex did what the other members couldn’t. This is on a team with straight killers (mofos that’ll shank you in the yard over a Twizzler), Wolverine, Deadpool, Psylocke, Archangel. Wade always has been against killing children (shown in his original series) and was chastised by Wolverine calling the group to talk about it. Psylocke was quick to point out that Wolverine was actually angry with the situation, not Wade. This was a defining moment for the team (and Marvel history to me). X-men don’t kill. Yeah, we know that, these ain’t ya normal X-Men tho. However, the kill squad of the X-men killing children? This is too much, I need a moment.

Granted that Fantomex brought back the reincarnation (via cloning) in order to raise him up proper. I’m counting this as an important death still since it was a clone that came back (who we know today as Evan). Plus the scale of what was done I feel was a well-executed look at the old question of, would you kill in order to prevent what could possibly happen? Well we know what Fantomex would do.
