Whoa! British Betsy is HOT!!! I don't remember her being that gorgeous... (was it really necessary to show her naked again, though??)

But Asian Betsy is hot, too. I wonder if this body is now dead for good, if Betsy will come back to it by the end of this arc (it's Marvel; one can never know...), or if Revanche's soul will inhabit it again (that would be my favorite option).

Thank you very much for the scans!

Who knows? Marvel is mysterious that way. The scans are beautiful, and I'm not that much of a Land fan, but I gotta admit, these do rock!!! Thanks for these scans!!!

BTW, in the first scan, Betsy is captured, blinded, having to wear the helmet and the gloves, with Lady Deathstrike with her menacing claws around her... yet she seems to be SMILING, and even kinda POSING with her lips.

Does it mean she's planning something against the Sisterhood, or is it just Land unable to draw her with a frightened/furious expression? Dude can draw gorgeous ladies, but he's not good with facial expressions...

the Britsh Betsy shouldn't have had eyes and would have scars all over from the legacy virus, but i'm sure all of this was probably cured. also i think the artist messed up because the corpse is lying there with Asian Betsy's clothes on in one part of the issue and she wakes up nude.

i loved the issue but i swear if they switch her back in 512 i'm going to try and contact someone from marvel to say enough already. make kwannon asian and betsy british and keep it that way forever. no other x-man has so many power additions and confusion. iceman - shoots ice. cyclops - optic blasts. keep it simple stupid!

Actually it is believed by some that the Asian Betsy that was captured was an alternate world Betsy.

Regarding her clothes, during the transfer her clothes were shown being ripped off her.

Regarding her wounds, the Red Queen healed Chimera of her wounds so she cured the British body's wounds.

Glad to see the British Body back - hope it is permanent.

I hope this Asian Betsy is NOT an alternate world Betsy, Askanipsion. If this happens, it means our Psylocke is NOT coming back at all, just a third Psylocke (Earth-616 Kwannon being the second one) inhabiting the body of the original Betsy.

And between Kwannon taking Psylocke's place and an alternate universe Psylocke establishing herself in Earth-616, I'd rather choose Kwannon. But of course, it would still be bad, as we were promised the REAL Psylocke (a.k.a. Earth-616 Betsy Braddock) would come back to the X-Men, not someone who is identical to her but it's not her.

Confusing, isn't it?

As for the original Betsy Braddock's body, you can see the scars on her eyes and body in the panel where Red Queen says "show me what you've got" so I assume they were healed in the process. I am more curious as to why her hair is still purple as originally it was only that way from dye.
