Betsy is absolutely exquisite in those pages! It doesnt even matter what body she is in I love Psylocke and thats all tha matters! My girl is back! The scenes with her and Ali were wonderful!

I really enjoyed the scenes with Betts and Ali but the Astral Plane fight was just cheesy and stupid.

Asian Betsy doesn't even look Asian at all. LOL

SoulTapestry said...

And that's how you make sure she's never in the Brit.Bod again. LOL. Then again, Sprial could knit it up again.

LOVED Ali's show of power.

I agree the Astral Plane fight looked mega lame, and was pretty much pointless. It coulda went down: Psi-Knife. Done.

I very much appreciate that the writers cleared up any questions as to what power she'd be having in the following issues. Telekinetic Ninja FTW!

The astral fight is awful! Greg Land doesn't draw, he copies photos of famous people! Jean in the cover is a copy of Fergie and Betsy is Megan Fox! Like all the characters are copied! And japanese with curly hair?? WTF?

Yay psy knife!

Luckystar and CmX-- Thank you so much for this blog!! It's so great to have this awesome space for Betsy. Thanks for all your hard work and all the updates... here's hoping there's lots more Psylocke news to come!

Great images of Betsy. They look wonderful.

Asian Betsy looks exactly the same. How can people care that she was in the British body when she always looks and acts the same? at least she was in her original one and it wasn't someone else's. i am appalled they are so freakin brutal to Betsy's British body. Blowing her face off? killed by the Dazzler? Harsh!

she looks very pretty though. i love her hair. i like it better light purple like in the british body, but i'll take what i can get.

gah. back to telekinesis.
psylocke should have just gotten her telepathy back.
T_T

i would have loved that again.

There are positives to her TK though. She won't have to compete with Emma and rest of the Telepaths now for attention. And the team is lacking a Telekinetic. Also she'll probably still have Telepathic Immunity, which is a pretty cool and useful ability. I just wish they'd expand her Precognition though.

Betsy's absolutely fantastic...i even liked the mental cliché: once for all it demonstrated Betsy's stronger than any manipulation..."Psylocke is stronger and i'm going home"!!! ---> that's great talking people !!xD her scene with Alison is very nice, she's been almost ignored by her teammates in the years after the resurrection (xcept for kurt and rachael)so it's good to see this kind of friendship among the mutants sometimes,i loved the light projection too xD guys i can't have my issue yet... Please can anyone explain me where Frost,Karma and the Masterwitches were while Psylocke and Dazzler were fighting???

Can someone explain to me what happened with the changes Jamie Braddock has done to her??? I thought that she was immune to magic, telepathy or any kind of alterations. As far as I remember, Spiral tried in the past and it did not work. And why did she succeded this time? Did she lose those changes during Exiles? I am so confused...

PsySpears said...

I think it was done at some high price by the red queen and the combined sisterhood,she said it was near impossible to get betsy.

I loved this issue,it was the one i was waiting for since the start of the arc,and Dazz and Bets's bits made me think it was all worth it.

I hope the bitching about the body swap is finished now too.Betsy seems pretty happy to be alive full stop and i feel a main charater role from now on.

"i am appalled they are so freakin brutal to Betsy's British body. Blowing her face off? killed by the Dazzler?"

Actually Dazzler only blew British Betsy's face off (and by accident, I think), and even then, Elixir could have restored it. It was Betsy herself who killed her British body by stabbing its head with the psychic knife.

I'd rather have Betsy in her British body, but if she prefers the Asian one, who are we to judge? I just hope she changes her uniform and that she and Dazzler get a lot of panel time in the next issues!

Mirage said...

Uniform change confirmed, FSaker! Time with Dazzler... who knows. Fraction did set up a nice relationship there. At least it seems like Betsy will get some panel time in the next issue with NO Scott or Emma!!! (I hope.)

Adam said...

I know some of you will miss that British body, but this issue delivered exactly what I wanted. She's back and got some serious panel time. I loved how powerful and confident she was taking on the murder spirit and I really like the colorist's interpretation of the psychic knife.

Best of all, it's exciting for me to see her return to a position of consequence among the X-men. I have a lot of respect for Claremont, but it became painfully clear that his work on Uncanny and Exiles was having zero effect on sales or the workings of the Marvel Universe. Love or hate Fraction, but Psylocke now has a chance to get what we all feel she deserves: more exposure and more credit!

And next month we see her in sweet period wear!

Dazzler should blast him in the face for even suggesting it!
