History: (X-Statix I#5)- Razorhead broke out of prison and X-Statix was called in to stop his rampage. He slashed the Anarchist, chopped Dead Girl in half, punched Vivisector in the face and uppercutted the Orphan. His rampage was cut short by Arnie Lundberg, the Mysterious Fanboy, who blew off the left side of his body using his powers of reality manipulation.

(New Avengers Most Wanted Files - BTS) - Somehow surviving the Mysterious Fan Boy's attack, Razorhead was captured and reported by S.H.I.E.L.D. Gail Runciter as having remained in prison since this capture. (see comments)

(Cable & X-Force I#6) - Razorhead was still imprisoned at the Raft when Wolverine and Colossus walked past his cell.

(Uncanny X-Men III#23) - After the Phoenix Five had undone the Scarlet Witch's "no more mutants" spell and mutants started to reappear on Earth, Madripoor became somewhat of a mutant utopia. Razorhead, like so many of his kind, traveled to the island state to make a new life for himself.

(X-Force VI#9 - BTS) - Razorhead was one of many mutants who accepted the invitation to come and live on Krakoa, the sovereign mutant island nation, ruled by the Quiet Council.

(X-Force VI#9) - Razorhead was seen enjoying himself in Krakoa's Green Lagoon next to Marrow and Magneto.

Comments: Created by Peter Milligan and Paul Pope.

Razorhead had escaped from prison and was then killed. While it is possible he is still alive, since he had escaped from prison, Runciter made a mistake in listing him. She had either forgotten his escape or meant someone else, like Razor Cut.

Still no explanation for his survival, but maybe after Mysterious Fan Boy blew Razorhead's head off, he altered reality such that Razorhead never escaped in the first place. I realize it might be tough to work that in before the heart attack and all.
