OK i'm with the train of thought that "he never should have died in the first place"
I am, however NOT in favour of the whole "kicked out of heaven" bit*
but in regards to the whole "how should
be resurrected/returned" bit here are some thoughts
1) Reality Manipulator
You know the whole "dead is dead" and "yeah we have a body" - but "whoops they're back!" Has been done before - anyone remember Betsy Braddock? killed by some baddie i can't remember, with sad people around her, subsequently autopsied, and buried and a while later her brother Jaime Braddock brought her back because he *missed* her. (Or something like that)
I can think of THREE extant reality manipulators right off the top of my head without trying... oh wait, he's dead, she's insane *counts on fingers* welll....
- There is something funny going on with the Scarlet Witch who is currently in Wundagore, with something mysterious in one of her rooms that Clint Barton discovered ...
- As far as I know that Gaea girl from Gen X didn't lose her powers so much as fall off the face of the earth so she's probably around the place somewhere
- Rachel Summers - give her the Phoenix force to work with and the elf will be up and flirting before you can blink
2) Time Travel
Perhaps it has been overused but it still can be done, goodness knows there's enough time travellers running about the place to need temporal traffic lights (and burly temporal policemen - dudes on timecycles hiding behind significant events - because you just *know* there's going to be one guy speeding, or another who's had too much to drink and decides to go back and moon Imhotep or someone else significant....)
3) Random Mcguffin
Cosmic Cube, T-O virus, medical nanites, Einsteins toenails, whatever, you know that there are things in the MU that can restructure reality for a Canadian dude who misses his friend.
Jean's supposedly coming back, *ducks thrown items* sorry but that's what i've heard... you think she'd want to practice it though so she doesn't cark it two minutes after coming back? and who else could she practice on but a nice guy who she knows pretty well?...
5) Crossover of the Month
Cmon' anyone want to see a White Lantern Nightcrawler? ... i wanna see one...
6) Logan goes and gets him back*
A-la that story in the Fantastic Four where the other three go off to Heaven to "rescue" Ben Grimm. As a Christian my reaction is: *facepalm*-gaaaahhh, but i have to (reluctantly) admit, there is a precedent.
Poor thing has to be good for something eh? perhaps she winds up as some sort of living mutant archive, or some kind of mutant gestalt, or SOMEthing...
I don't really count that as the Original Kurt coming back but someone mentioned it on another board and so i suppose it should be mentioned here. Should we call him Ben R - oops Stephan Wagner?
