I’d Give Banshee’s Death Some More Meaning
Okay, I get it – to make Vulcan look really tough during X-Men: Deadly Genesis, Ed Brubaker (or editorial, whoever decided it) figured he had to kill off an X-Men cast member, and Banshee drew the short straw.
Fair enough – but then to have Banshee’s death be that he FAILED to save an airplane from crashing into the X-Men’s Blackbird?
I’d have avoided that, and let Banshee’s last act be one of saving the plane, but dying in the process. You get the same basic effect, as the whole “meaningless of death” thing that I presume they were going for was not worth it, in my estimation.
