Emma checks in to a hotel you have to see to believe while poor Scott sits idly by...oh, and then footage showing the Alaskan Massacre that kicked off MESSIAH COMPLEX is released to the media. Just another day in the life of the all new, all different X-MEN!

Will the whole story be told in the past? And do the events of the miniseries have implications in the present?
The first issue occurs in the Silver Age. Issue #2 happens right after “Kraven’s Last Hunt,” towards the end of the “Mutant Massacre.” Issue #3 is set during the Clone Saga/Wolverine with bone-claws era, with Ben Reilly active as Spider-Man. And our final issue will take place more or less in the present, but before the X-Men moved to San Francisco.
The events will definitely have implications for the present, but not in a “retcon” kind of way, like revealing that Uncle Ben was really Wolverine’s brother or anything like that.
As we all know Betsy joined the X-Men during the Mutant Massacre event. Let's hope Psylocke is part of this story in all her pinky and British glory. :D Issue #2 is in stores on December 10.

The Story: The Exiles find themselves on an Earth with no super-powers, but where humanity vies with an intelligent sauropod race for dominance. The Daughters of the Dragon serve as the champions of humankind, while the mysterious Sons of Iron refuse to reveal which side they are on. But neither group is ready for the coming of Liliandra and her Shi'Ar Death Commandos…not without our reality-hopping heroes!

Here is a brief excerpt from an interview Newsarama did with Uncanny X-Men writer Matt Fraction. He talks about more women joining his book. Given what Joe Quesada has said, it looks like Uncanny will be Betsy's home for the coming year.
NRAMA: With the additions of Karma, Dazzler, and Pixie to the line-up, will there be any noteworthy subtractions in the months to come? Can the sheer size of the cast of the X-Men become a bit of a burden for your writing? Or does it have its advantages?
MF: Well, let's talk about line-up for a second. First, you'll notice those're all female characters. The X-Men, we all sort of agreed, had gotten a little too dude-y, so we wanted the fairer sex to blast some fresh air into the place. Uncanny was starting to smell like a sweat sock. So: more women. Yes. Domino? Coming right up.
JQ: We did say that this year was a "year of returns" in the X-Office, so it might just fit that Psylocke is one of the returns. You're in the right ballpark, at least. There are women coming back. Non-brunettes.
Now let's all be annoying and send our Psylocke related questions to the CBR's X-Positions! Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org with "X-Position" in the subject line. Ask them about what they have in mind for Psylocke for the coming year and what more can we expect (storylines and powers). Make sure to tell them we don't want to see Betsy as a background character anymore and that if they took her away from the Exiles, then do something good with her. There, I said it. ;P
