    There's no way that War Of Kings can end with any type of redemption for Gabriel Summers; Emporer Vulcan. So who do you think has the most 'right' to kill him? And who will do the deed?

I agree that Gabriel Summers can no longer be redeemed. His character has gone too far to sudden become good again. It wouldn't feel right if that happened, and I'm sure fans would feel cheated if that ever happen.

    A: Scott Summers. The oldest brother who he captured and tortured. And killed his daddy.
    B: Alex Summers. The older brother who he captured and tortured even worse. And killed his daddy.
    C: Hepzibah; lover of Christopher Summers.
    D: Lilandra; empress royal of the Shi'ar. (note this thread was written before I read WoK#4, so she's pretty much out of the running.)
    E: Black Bolt leader of the Inhuman/Kree empire.
    F: Adam-X; the maybe Summers brother.
    G: Adam Warlock and the Guardians of The Galexy
    H: Nova, containing the full nova-force
    I: Galactus and The Silver Surfer.
    J: Syrin, he did kill Theresa's daddy.
    K: Gladiator; loyal to Lilandra.
    L: Xavier.
    M: Darwin.
    O: Phoenix, Rachel Summers.
    P: Lorna Dane, Polaris.

Unfortunately half the characters you have listed are not in space, so that would effectively rule them out. As for Lilandra, is she dead? We know she's been shot, but I'll wait until the next issue for it to be confirmed. I doubt (should she survive) she'd be strong enough by the end of the series to do the deed.

I would think out of your list, it would have to be Black Bolt, purely because the series is called "War of Kings" - Vulcan "King" of the Shi'ar and Black Bolt "King" of the Inhumans (and now Kree).


    Personally my favorite ending to my least favorite Summers brother would be; Vulcan is killed by Cyclops who once again donned the mantle of Eric the Red. Because it was the Shi'ar Erik the Red who made the Summers plane go down, when Scott and Alex were boys, and Gabriel was a fetus. Years later, Scott wore the suit of Eric The Red at Lorna's introduction. So it started with Erik the Red and should end with Eric the Red.
    Course I also think Cyke should don the red Erik costume and go on some missions with X-Force every once in awhile, but thats just me.

It wouldn't surprise me though if (as with the rest of the Marvel Universe) Vulcan won. The good guys aren't winning as much as they used to.
