    My opinion has always been that he serves no purpose with JAMES Proudstar around.

    Even you just confused the original, JOHN Proudstar, for JAMES. ;\)



    Quote:
    JOHN = stupid guy who died fighting Count Nefaria on a jet
    JAMES = Juggernaut-level 90s X-Force tank who surpasses his brother in every meaningful way


Except one. At least to me James is just as boring as a character as his big brother. \:\-P

The only purpose John served after his death was to provide motivation for James, but that was phased out with the slaughter of their tribe and James rebranding himself as Warpath. So now John's return would not serve the kind of immediately obvious purpose that you would have had when the tribe was still alive and James still called himself Thunderbird and wore the same costume as John. So to bring back John you would have to do something akin to Cold War Nostalgia Bucky and Spider-Gwen - replace a character with someone new and more interesting, someone who, when you look closely, really has little more in common with the original than the name.
