The Unnecessary Return Of Daken.

If you've been reading my blog, you know I feel Daken's series became amazing when Rob Williams took over. You also know the series ended with Daken dying in the best possible way to tell his story. I discuss all this here.

Now then, if you've been reading Uncanny X-Force you know that a new Evil Brotherhood of mutants has emerged recently, and who is there helping lead it? Daken. God-damn it Marvel, you couldn't even let him stay dead for a year?
"I was dead? Little ol' me? You don't say!"
I know his death was slightly mysterious, the story said he made it that way on purpose so people would always wonder, "What if?" Now you just go and show him alive and kicking. Why? We've gotten a few interesting moments between he and Evan/Genesis/The Possible New Apocalypse. In the latest issue we have a neat scene where Sabertooth basically says he wants to be Daken's adoptive father in a's all well and good, but Daken was better off dead. I'm disappointed in Marvel and writer Rick Remender. That's all I've really got to say on the matter.

It's still a really good comic though.
