I know that he's currently being used (In Avengers Arena, correct?), but I can see him going legit. He seems like a pretty popular character, being as he's used quite a bit. And he has shown some genuine sense of honor hasn't he? I don't really see Silver Samurai as a bad guy either. So we've lost Magneto, the Juggernaut, we've had Mystique redeemed (Sort of. She seesaws.), we've had Sabretooth (Don't buy that one at all.) as somewhat reformed, Emma isn't a villian anymore. Frenzy either (Right?). But Arcade makes sense. I could see something being done there, but I doubt that it will ever happen. Then again, I guess that if Apocalypse has been redeemed (Did that arc ever conclude?), anyone can, even monsters like Fabian Cortez, Donald Pierce or Cameron Hodge. Apocalypse, by the way, I don't see as being redeemable either.

I really don't think so. Unlike those others, Arcade kills for fun and profit. And he's never shown a sense of honour.

Mystique hasn't been redeemed either. Just because she's sometimes sided with the good guys doesn't mean a thing.

Apocalypse hasn't been redeemed. Evan, his clone, does not have that baggage. He's his own person. That is not a redemption.
