Yes it takes place in the main 616 continuity. Cyclops does not die (as of yet, 1 more issue to go in the mini series), and yes, expect Prof X to come back in 2-3 years. Comics have come a long way in quality (the paper, the writing, the color separation etc), but if you don't like comics there is nothing in these that will get you interested. To each their own.

By enacting laws or concluding treaties or agreements, countries determine the conditions under which they may entertain or deny extradition requests. Common bars to extradition include:
Death penalty – Many countries, such as Australia, Canada, India, Macao, and most European nations, will not allow extradition if the death penalty may be imposed on the suspect unless they are assured that the death sentence will not be passed or carried out.
This is the case for Canada, so likely the Japanese govt. has not or has pledged not to consider the death penalty in this case.

And yet the American media also say that the plane might not be as safe as claimed. http://www.cnn.com/2012/06/22/us/florida-osprey-crash/index.html?iref=allsearch
Are all claims of safety issues equally out to lunch or just when the Japanese people bring it up? Sorry, that does not wash. It doesn't matter who brings up the issue, safety is safety, and if you don't feel safe, you have the right to say.

@molenir They are employed and represent the US government and military branch they are assigned to, even when off duty. That is why the US did and needed to apologize. If the person in question was only a US citizen and not a uniformed member or active employee of the Federal government, there would not have been an apology.
As for comments that the US military shielding their soldiers, one only needs to look at the case in Afghanistan recently where a lone soldier allegedly massacred civilians and be was whisked from the county to the US. I would lay bets that he will never appear before a court in Afghanistan like this soldier did in South Korea. You can debate that he would never get a fair trial in Afghanistan, but that's not really the point, the point is he will not face the justice system of the country he allegedly committed the crimes in. That can, and does often appear to be shielding a serviceman from justice.
