So I'm going for a character that I think could actually have potential in terms of future stories and who has relationships with existing characters, so his return could have an impact, if writers choose to pick it up.
And that character is Sean Cassidy AKA Banshee.
For a start, Sean's an elder statesmen of the X-men and has potential to fill an important role, mentoring younger mutants. He's filled that role before, but the attempts to shuffle the younger X-men (Iceman, Rogue, Kitty, Cannonball etc) into roles as teachers never really clicked for me. You've then got years of history to draw on - he's got relationships with most of the generations of X-men, be it the original team, the Wolverine generation, Emma Frost and Gen X and, obviously, Siryn and the X-Force and New Mutants crowd. There's so much there that could be drawn on and I've always thought his sidelining and then non-event death which was never mentioned outside of the miniseries in which it happened, was a real waste of a great character.
