Why is Xorn such a popular Character?


Recommended Posts

With all that being said what made him this great character that was destroyed by making him Magneto, besides that Magneto returned.

He was ALWAYS Magneto. Morrison ALWAYS intended for Xorn to be Magneto.


Well, sure, that is the actuality of it, but up until the point we (the reader) knew any better - he wasn't Magneto yet. I also liked the character, but would have much preferred it to not have been Magneto. And everyone keeps talking about Claremont bringing Mags back, but the issue before Morrison's run Wolverine gutted and killed Magneto. Morrison then brought back Erik on Genosha (in the first or second issue of his run, I believe), and killed him off again in the same issue. And then at the end of his run, Magneto was brought back and killed by Wolverine again. ... And then a few months later Magneto was brought back. All in all, the man died 3 times in around a year's time span. A little bit awkward on the writing for any reader.


I agree. I really like the character Morrison built up as Xorn, and I thought it was a terrible waste of a really great character to have him turn into Magneto or evil or whatever. He should have stayed Xorn, and I would have happily continued reading stories about Xorn. In the New-X men Xorn story where he tries to save the mutant boy who is bassically a chrysalis, Morrison wrote Xorn's thoughts which were very un-Magneto.
