Character Means of Death Means of Resurrection

Struck by his own psychic knife and a backlash of chronal energy, David Haller seemingly dispersed into stray atoms while trying to change the past. [X-Men Omega, June 1995] David’s dispersal was actually a banishment, and he drifted through the outer nothingness of Limbo for some time, trying to find his way home. [New Mutants (3rd series) #1, July 2009]
  David Haller finally came into the god-like power that was his mutant inheritance, but could not maintain the control of his mind and powers necessary to keep others safe. Accessing the reality-altering abilities at his fingertips, Legion manipulated the time stream to ensure he had never been born instead, wiping his influence from the timeline and apparently causing his own "death." [X-Men Legacy (2nd series) #24, April 2014]  Legion's attempt to remove himself from reality failed, and he ultimately leaked back into existence. [Legion #1, March 2018, explained Uncanny X-Men (5th series) #3, January 2019]

Sebastian Shaw
When Shinobi Shaw wanted to supplant his father and score points in the Upstarts competition, he used his powers to interphase Sebastian’s chest and induce a massive coronary. Shinobi then blew up his father’s Swiss chalet with him still inside it for good measure. [X-Factor (1st series) #67, June 1991] Although the details of his survival have yet to be revealed, it’s likely that Sebastian’s kinetic absorbing powers were responsible for saving his life from Shinobi’s assassination. [X-Force (1st series) #48, November 1995]
  In order to gain loyalty from Namor among Norman Osborn’s cabal, Emma Frost promised to murder his old foe, Sebastian Shaw. Frost used her telepathy to convince Namor that Shaw had been beheaded, and then hid him away deep inside the X-Brig. Thus far, Namor still remains unaware of her ruse. [Uncanny X-Men Annual (2nd series) #2, March 2009]

Through unrevealed circumstances, Sebastian Shaw regained his memories and reclaimed a public position with the Hellfire Club. Any effort or reason to hide his resurrection from Namor had long since passed. [Uncanny X-Men (4th series) #6, June 2016]

Blink (616)

In confrontation with the Phalanx, their hive master Harvest proved more adaptable and resilient than Blink and her fellow young mutants could handle. In desperation, Clarice spatially shifted the hull of the ship they were on, casting her friends into the bay. She then unleashed her biggest spatial-sheering pulse yet, large enough and powerful enough to destroy Harvest, though it consumed Clarice as well. [X-Men (2nd series) #37, October 1994]

The Black Queen detected Clarice in the void between spaces and sought her out, returning Blink to our dimensional space. Selene used her abilities to heal Clarice of the spatial-sheering that had been consuming her body as well, restoring her to full health. [X-Force (3rd series) #11, March 2009, explained in X-Necrosha: The Gathering, February 2010]

Thinking herself invulnerable, Monet took a series of brutal beatings at the hands of Guido, the demons of Hell and the lord of the Olympian underworld Pluto. She was bleeding internally and continued to fight on despite Layla Miller's warnings, and eventually died while battling Guido in Hell. [X-Factor (1st series) #255, July 2013]

Despite being soulless, Guido still loved Monet. He murdered Rahne's son Tier to claim victory in the Hell on Earth War, becoming overall king of all the underworlds. With his newfound power, Guido restored Monet to life and then banished her from his kingdom. [X-Factor (1st series) #256, July 2013]

Thomas Jones was recruited into the X-Men specifically for his transmutative powers, hoping he could neutralize the deadly effects of the Terrigen cloud. He succeeded in making the cloud's elements inert while passing through it, but not before succumbing to M-Pox himself. [Death of X #4, January 2017]

Old Man Logan
Logan's healing factor was already slowing down when he arrived in the past. The exertion of being "Wolverine" again taxed his recovery time greatly, and he was forced to use the unstable Regenix compound to boost his healing factor, but ruin his long-term health. He soon returned to his future in order to die on his own terms. After a lifetime of physical abuse and pain, Logan finally passed away at his family's graves. [Dead Man Logan #12, December 2019]

Strong Guy Guido was shot in the chest by the mercenary Ballistique, his mutant musculature providing very little defense. At the hospital, he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead. [X-Factor (1st series) #218, June 2011]


Layla Miller intervened shortly after Guido's death, using her resurrection power to bring him back from the grave, fully healthy, but without the benefits of a soul. [X-Factor (1st series) #218, June 2011] Illyana Rasputin eventually restored Guido's soul as well.

Shatterstar II

Once the X-Men helped Longshot and Dazzler overthrow Mojo, the couple were expecting a child as they adapted to being rulers of Mojoworld. When she next encountered the X-Men, however, Dazzler was no longer with child. Jean Grey stopped Iceman from asking about the baby, as her telepathically scans indicated the child was... gone. [X-Men (2nd series) #47, December 1995]

Years later, the origin of Shatterstar revealed that he was that baby. Through a series of time travel misadventures, the adult Shatterstar collected his own infant self from Alison as she gave birth, moving him further down the timeline where he would eventually become the future warrior, Shatterstar. [X-Factor (1st series) #259, September 2013]

Multiple Man

When an unknown caller came to the door of his apartment, Jamie Madrox responded and was gunned down, his bullet-ridden body crashing out the window and falling to the streets below. [X-Factor (1st series) #71, October 1991]

In fact, Jamie had been suspicious enough to send a duplicate in his place. He had actually watched from a secure corner when his dupe was killed. [X-Factor (1st series) #72, November 1991]

  Madrox exposed himself to the Legacy Virus when he gave CPR to a dying Mutate in Genosha. His condition deteriorated over several weeks, until he was on the brink of death when X-Factor confronted Haven. Noticing his plight, Haven offered to cure Jamie of the virus using her powers. Whether she failed to stop the spread of the virus or actively made matters worse is unclear, but Madrox did not survive his trip through Haven's dimension. [X-Factor (1st series) #100, March 1994] A version of Madrox managed to avoid assimilating the Legacy Virus from the infected duplicate, but fell into a state of shock after Jamie's death. He wandered the country amnesic for a time before resurfacing. Sources vary on whether the original Jamie Prime survived the virus, or if a new Jamie Prime was established from a surviving dupe. [X-Factor (1st series) #105, August 1994, explained in X-Factor (1st series) #129, December 1996]


  X-Factor Investigations was fighting a demon named Bloodbath, who could possess and animate corpses. One of Jamie's duplicates was killed during the fight, and Bloodbath then possessed the dupe and drove his sword through Madrox's chest, fatally wounding him. [X-Factor (1st series) #228, January 2012] The coming of the Hell on Earth War left the dimensional barriers weakened around Jamie's Earth. Apparently as a result, Jamie's spirit crossed over to other dimensions instead of moving on to the afterlife. He manifested as a dupe of the local Jamie Prime immediately following that Jamie's death on three different worlds. Doctor Strange of the last world cast a spell that sent Madrox back to his own body and dimension. Layla had a med student fix Jamie's wounds and kept his body refrigerated for when he returned to her. [X-Factor (1st series) #232, April 2012]
  Jamie Madrox was one of the first known victims of M-Pox as he and countless dupes suffered from exposure to the cloud of Terrigen Mists when it passed over Muir Island. [Death of X #1, December 2016] A duplicate who survived Jamie Prime's death was discovered. Hank McCoy developed a serum that turned a duplicate into a stabile new Jamie Prime. [Multiple Man #1-5, August - December 2018]
  The new Prime was killed battling techno-organic Sentinels at the Hellfire Club. [Uncanny X-Men (5th series) #22, September 2019] Krakoan Resurrection Protocols. [X-Force (6th series) #4, February 2020]
