Also Where the hell is Shard!? This is a great opportunity to save a potential great character and bring her back and undo the crap that was Fitzroy.

    Meh, I don't think I'd like to see that. Just seems so convoluted, and that tends to happen so much with time-based characters.

    I meant now that Layla is in the future with Jamie they could reintroduce Shard Bishops little sister. Maybe give her some warning to not screw around with Fitzroy. Bring her back to life by screwing up the time stream. (if that is the same future bishop present came from.)
    Rogue and Bishop's daughter would be called Discharge, and she'd touch people and drain all or some of their bioelectrical energy out of them causing them to either die or fall unconscious. She could then use this energy to extend her own life, heal herself, enhance her physical abilities (speed, strength, stamina,) or discharge it as various energy beams.

    that would have been cool. Strong Guy has sort of replaced him by taking up the sheriff role.

    Would be cool, though, if there's some scenes of Strong Guy and Bishop sort of going head to head in disagreements. Damn, that'd be fun.

    With Valerie recurring in X-Factor, I would have made some sense of Bishop appearing in his old town, especially with the friendship Val and Bishop seemed to be developing. In the X-Men: Civil War mini, it seemed as if maybe more could come out of that...

    Traitor, murderer, child killer(not even talking about the baby but the New X-Men)! Yeah, it is a good look for him.

As time went on, he powers were retcon'd to work on kinetic energy as well. Absorbing energy and enhancing his physical traits was also a later development. The writers must not have felt he was cool enough so they gave him a powerup. It happens to all heroes at some point. Cannonball taking out Gladiator was another example of a significant powerup.
    I was with you until the word "out." Cannonball should not have been able to take Galdiator "on" but he did. But he never came close to taking Gladiator "out."

    Much as I'd like to get rid of these convoluted time travelings, I guess they just made Bishop a little more interesting than a personality-free cop of some kind. Cool to see a brother outsmart Cable (whose been called as smart and tactical as Reed Richards and Captain America put together). And he's always been powerful. I'll wait and see.

    There's always character turns that people don't like. It doesn't mean the character is ruined forever. Jean Grey ate a star and killed a bunch of asperagus people, for cripes sake. Charles Xavier's done things since the O5 days that have tainted him at times. Magneto's been everything from a villain to a hero. Considering I still like Beast after he allowed Sinister to take Threnody during the events of the Legacy Virus, I don't worry. Bishop is simply doing what he believes is right, in order to prevent the coming dark future.

    I actually agree with you, which is why I hope they don't kill him off, it will be too tempting to bring him back that way.

    This is somewhat unrelated to MC, but still related to Bishop, but did they ever fully explain Bishiops family history. I remeber long ago it being explained that Gateway was his great-grandfather. I think it was hinted at that M from Generation X was his grandmother, was his ever explained or confirmed?

    I believe the M thing was proven false. She just bared a resemblance to her.
