A7X's 'The Rev' Temporarily Declared Immortal on Wikipedia
As Loudwire is reporting, Wikipedia has declared that late Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan is actually immortal. For several hours on June 26th, the musician's Wikipedia page was changed to read "James Owen Sullivan (February 9, 1981 - ∞)," showing the symbol for infinity as his date of death.

His Wiki page also showed his music career as lasting from "1998-∞." ∞ is the symbol for infinity. As Loudwire states, while Avenged Sevenfold fans proudly claim that The Rev will never die, for a while, that notion was listed as fact.  

It was recently reported that the upcoming Avenged Sevenfold mobile game, "Hail to the King: Deathbat" will allow fans to play as The Rev. As front man M. Shadows notes, all the band members are featured, with their avatars having unique abilities:

"Well, for instance, Arin [Ilejay, drums] really wanted a blade in each hand with a boomerang effect so that they would come back to him. We couldn't do that, so we compromised and gave him a double-sided sword. Zacky [Vengeance, guitar] wanted a baseball bat - he throws rocks at people, and mashes them with a bat. Synyster Gates [guitar] has a little demon that runs around with him - and when you use his magic powers, you hear one of his dive-bombs, which he recorded specially for it. Johnny [Christ, bass] has the 'Hell Sword,' which rains blood on people, and I have 'Shadows Sight,' which is like a black plume of smoke that you inhale in your lungs. We all did stupid voiceovers for it when we were a little inebriated. [Laughs] Also, with the blessing of his parents, we put The Rev in the game. Once you unlock his character, you can use him as your comrade to help you through the levels."
