This is causing some considerable consternation on another board.

Changeling in the comics? No.
Morph in the cartoon? Yes.

OK, I can't be bothered checking this on Wiki but my recollection is that he was pretending to be Xavier, right? They wrote Xavier out and then they got cold feet and said, 'No, wait, that was someone else disguised as Xavier. And now he's dead.'

Assuming this is broadly correct (it might not be) then I say, yeah. He gave his life for the X-Men. That's gotta count for something. Give the guy a break.

I'd go with yes with this explanation.

He was a shapechanger that took Professor X's place for a short time. Died in X-Men #42.

Image

It was revealed in X-Men 65 that Changeling had taken Professor X's place so Professor X could deal with the coming Z'nox threat.

Edit: corrected 66 to 65.

Not a member.

Back then, I wouldn't count Prof X as a member either.

Changeling was listed as a member in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe I had, so Marvel considers him one. I'm assuming in continuity the team awarded him with the title of "X-Men" posthumously for his sacrifice.

Retcon X-Man. So yes, he was.

By the way, I've always thought the real most important X-Men question of all time was - Does Charles Xavier shave still? You know, is he truly completely bald or does he get tufts here and there on his noggin?

That and is Rahne Sinclair really Xavier and Moira love child?
"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

If you do check wikipedia, he's not only considered an X-Man but "the first X-Man to die in action".

(Not that wikipedia is the real authority, just 'cause you brought it up.)
