: I hated it as well. The first comic I ever
: read was CHAMPIONS #9, with Darkstar, so
: she's always held a special place in my
: heart. Morrison basically had Darkstar
: killed off so he could make his pet
: character Fantomex look bad. Fantomex
: basically blasted people being controlled by
: that Weapon X whatever thing and Darkstar
: was one of the random people killed.
: Morrison even wrote a pathetic funeral
: sequence where, through Emma Frost, he
: basically said Darkstar was worthless. He
: didn't even bother to have her brother,
: Vanguard, or her father the Presence, or
: even her Soviet Super Soldier teammates at
: the funeral, which was ridiculous.
Wasn't her brother already dead himself by the time the funeral took place? No big loss because the relationship wasn't that inspired an addition to her backstory nor was their connection to the Presence. The USSR was a huge ass country and yet these three had to be related?
: Sorry for the mini rant. Darkstar's death is
: still a sore subject with me. I am hoping
: that it will turn out that the Darkstar who
: was killed was a Skrull and the real one is
: still alive somewhere.

: Fill me in?
: She was the victim of one of the
: incomprehensible plots in the X-Men books
: during the Morrison Dark Ages. I forget
: whether he wrote it or not but she was
: absorbed by Weapon DCCCXII or something and
: killed. I still hate it. Not as much as
: Spider-Man making deals with Satan but
: close. I loved the early Byrne Darkstar and
: will never accept that she's gone for good.
: Her brother on the other hand...
