Quick. Do you know who John Proudstar is/was? Depending on what level of Geek you are – and I am a 33rd degree master in the order of Azaroth (just throwing that out there) – you may or may not recognize John Proudstar as being one of the all new all exciting international team of mutants that revitalized the X-Men in Giant Sized X-Men number 1 and X-Men 94. This is because he was killed off in X-Men 95. Reportedly, the writer John Byrne was given a choice of killing Wolverine or Proudstar (named Thunderbird) and chose to kill Thunderbird primarily because Logan and Byrne are both Canadian. So, a couple years back, you might have seen X-Men Origins: Thunderbird instead of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. That got me to thinking what other fictional characters got to live on in movies just because they were Canadian. It was a bit too narrow and South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut really kind of provided a lot of useful counter arguments. So I expanded focus and here are some characters that were supposed to die in movies but made it out alive and of course on to sequels!
