I think he's a great character and I'm all for more exposure, but neither his skill set nor his personality set him up to be a hero. Everything that made Starfox seem icky is amplified by Hellion, and every time he opens his mouth, he talks about how he believes he's better than everyone. He should be in the Hellfire Club, not the X-Men.
I don't get why you'd link him with Starfox. What makes Starfox icky is that he's manipulating emotions. Otherwise, he's a good guy and a lot of fun. Hellion is just another telekinetic. He's never been any fun. He's tended to be a bully, which is the opposite of Starfox. Nor is he that extraordinary.
