Another Example Of Woke Marvel/Disney Storytelling In X-Terminators #3

This week's X-Terminators #3  – the only Marvel X-Men comic book out this week, in a fifth week schedule from Marvel Comics that, along with DC Comics, leaves things a little dry this week, which also gives readers a bigger chance to experiment.

Does it count as killing a man when the man in question is already undead?
