    If they really insisted on bringing him back, they should have stuck to the idea that his powers themselves weren't combat-oriented, IMHO.

Yeah, that would have been much more preferable to simply doing the whole "Shake & Bake Ninja" thing on him. It didn't really work for Kitty, it turned Psylocke into a bloody in-joke, and all it's going to do to Doug is make him one of the crowd.

    Having him as the Bosley-type support staff to X-Force, hacking them data on targets and access with his original powerset, would work a lot better and let in a bit more of the moral dilemmas that book needs to explore. (How culpable would Doug be in that role? How much would he be told, and what happens when he starts using his mutant talents to find out more?)

You know, if they did that, I might be prepared to sacrifice a little more of my soul to actually read the damn thing. As it is...
