Important Events

Erik Lensherr was taken down in combat with the X-Men for the final time about eight years ago. He was badly injured and fell into a coma. His body was kept alive, tended and aided as much as possible by the healing abilities of devoted mutant followers. He made numerous public appearances in the years following this defeat, but these are all attributable to Mystique. His death came about two hours after Charles Xavier finally died. It's entirely possible that he spent those eight years of coma maintained in the astral plane by his connection to Charles Xavier, and finally shuffled loose the mortal coil only when Charles's sustaining presence was finally gone.
