Is Bowser Jr DEAD?

Lately, I have been worried about the status of Bowser Jr. The last time we saw Bowser Jr in a CANON role was in Super Mario Galaxy 2. After being defeated by Mario, Bowser Jr was sent flying off aimlessly into space. He has not been seen since, which is troubling.

He missed out on Super Mario 3D Land (although there are theories which would excuse that), but now he appears to be missing from New Super Mario Bros 2. Nintendo has been releasing official artwork, and Bowser Jr. has been noticeably absent. There are also trailers for the game which have shown the Koopaling rejects as main antagonist. Having the Koopalings as the main antagonist is strange considering Bowser Jr has been a higher threat, and reoccurring villain in the NSMB series since it began.


If Bowser Jr does not appear in NSMB2, or NSMB Wii U... I must assume that he is indeed dead.

Thoughts?

Probably relegated to Koopalings status. Not as dead as Wart at least.

Surely there's no problem with them putting me in Brawl, right?

Super Mario Galaxy 2 was the last major console Mario game, how is that anywhere near dead?

He's Bowser's son. being flung into space is something he can easily recover from.

"Fail" is not a noun.
