IDW Comics: Kup's Fate

So, to my understanding, Kup was killed in the Infestation crossover mini-series. My questions: Is this true? And if so, how does that make any of you readers feel?

For me, it seems odd that they would kill a semi-important character off in a mini-series that otherwise has (or shouldn't have any) no real effect on the continuity as a whole.

If I am just confused in my beliefs, or if you agree/disagree, let's hear your thoughts.

I was asking this same question a while back!

The Dead Universe seems to be coming up in the near future's issues, so we might have a comeback. Or maybe not. We're not sure what actually happened to him.

Infestation did have a repercussion on the series, though, as Heart of Darkness follows from it, and Chaos from that.

Right...I tend to forget about series from that era...

Thanks for clarifying the repercussions thing. But still, do you think it's odd that Imfestation is considered somewhat "official"?

Yeah, it's a crossover event with other aspects of a universe which do not seem to ever meet again, but still has an enormous impact on at least one of them.

*shrugs*

I don't have strong feelings against it, but I do find it odd.

"Enormous?"

Significant, maybe, but not huge. Galvatron basically just repeated the same offer he made in Infestation when he met Prime in Chaos.

As for Kup, I doubt he's coming back. He's been out of circulation so long there'd have to be a lengthy explanation for why he survived. Even if he DID survive, contact with the Dead Universe should've changed him to the extent he could no longer exist in the IDWverse.

But Hardhead exists outside the Dead Universe.

And this inconsistency was brought up by Galvatron in Heart of Darkness. Hardhead's special, or something.

Or, more likely, after Golarm Prime was re-re-reformatted sometime after Revelation, because Hardhead and Arcee didn't follow the other planet inhabitants into the pool, they retained their conscious forms and Hardhead was somehow altered along with the planet.
