Marvel ain't giving up on the Scott Summers > * meme, at least in 616.
Scott Summers will be the one who is killed ... and then he will meet Cable in the white hot room, be told all of this had to occur for him to understand exactly what needs to be done, and then he will be miraculously revived to save the day. And he will be redeemed, at least for those reading the story, although perhaps not with respect to other characters in the Marvel Universe.
Scott is likely to die in this, but death in the MU is sometimes shorter lived than a head cold.
Pain shared is divided, joy shared is multiplied
