think i preferred it when Loken was dead, at least his death, the final battle between the mournival, Abbaddon and Aximand against Torgaddon and Loken, signified the end of the golden era for the Luna Wolves. It also set up Aximands guilt at the deaths of his brothers and the meloncoly over wether they did the right thing, and Abbaddons ruthlessness becoming more than it already was.

When they brought him back it did defile everything that he as a character had achieved and to resurect him in such a marval comics fashion was just wrong. If i want that i'll go re read the many resurections of Jean Grey or Elektra.

Your post has one big flaw. Loken wasnt resurrected and infact was never even written as being killed. This is the first positive thing for the loyalists in the heresy.

You really think that? On what evidence? He planted a few beans and looked spiders for the first while he was back, then royally fucked up the first mission he was given. How is that a positive?

"The ground shuddered as though in the grip of an earthquake and loken felt his prison of debris shift. Hard spikes of pain buffeted him as flames burst across the remains of the parliament building. Then darkness fell at last, and loken felt nothing else"

Pg 403-404, Galaxy in flames, Ben Counter.

I'm pretty sure that this describes lokens final moments before he dies.

To me it looks like he just blacked out. I mean yes,the writer ment for it to seem like loken was dead, but only for shock value when we find out he is alive

I dunno, he would need to have amazing plot armor to survive that.
