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.

"Should [blank] have stayed dead?"

My general response to this question tends to be: No. IMO, nothing should ever be permanent in fantasy fiction.

Plus, it's my belief that supremely powerful telepaths shouldn't even need physical bodies. Immortal (for all intents and purposes) telepaths make more sense than almost anything else. I like this even more than I like Wolverine healing from extreme injury in a snap. Technically, we already have mutants living such existences (Rockslide), so why not old Chuck?

In fact, of all the mutants we had, Xavier has needed a body least of all. He's a man of thought, who has generally worked behind the scenes, so his ultimate expression should be complete thought.

As for the current story, it has an extra plus in that it (hopefully) gets rid of Fantomex. However, I'm not getting my hopes up to high on that one. But I can dream. Right?
