It's more revelant to the story than having Walter Declun coming back as "the Mogul" (for a Wolverine story, it would have been revelant) ... it serves no purpose here, or having Commanda making an appearence. When a writer is telling me a story in which he says his character got powers from MGH, yes, I think it's revelant to, at least, name the character it came from. And it also shows the writer knows what he is talking about. Here it tends to show he just don't know.
In the story "Endangered Species", when the Beast is searching for MGH, he finds some working samples, and we are told it's from the mutant called Whirlwind. The writer could just have said it was from one of the remaining mutants but no, he told us who, because we expect him to tell us just that if he is doing his job...
