    It appears from what I heard/read of Astonishing X-Men and from the upcoming solicits, that he is indeed back. I am disappointed. I can see why they would bring him back, but I think that they did too much to signify that he was dead, no, REALLY dead! Didn't the Red Skull literally take his brain? It was permanent, so I think that he should stay dead. It seems like kind of a cheat, especially as they just did a story over in Uncanny Avengers that seemingly closed this story for good. And this seems like regression in a way. So, keep him dead, I say.

Well, if they're bringing back Jean Grey as the Phoenix I guess someone felt they could bring back ol' Chuck as well. Apparently he returned in a way to how the Shadow King keeps coming back, so it may actually make a twisted kind of sense. Personally I think they brought him back too soon. I guess you can't keep him down as despite the attempts to build up Scott Summers the political/ideological conflict in the X-books boils down to Professor X vs. Magneto in many people's minds, so many writers would feel to have it both of them around.

In the past writers tended to get rid of Charles (either by killing him off or sending him off into space) because he was too powerful a telepath (and could have ended many battles by his lonesome), but these days there are so many powerful telepaths that the playing field is much more level (AFAIK he hasn't been the world's most powerful telepath for quite some time).
