Yes. RIP. I love this scan! Land's Betsy looks beautiful here. She has an attractive hairstyle and some good page time. These scans remind me of the Australian outback days.

@Luckystar - Another aspect of these scans that I loved was Betsy's sentimental side. Although she is a trained warrior, she can be kind and compassionate when the situation demands it. We see Betsy crying because of Dr. Takiguchi's death. It is a poignant moment, but one that gives us insight into the sensitive side of Betsy. I like it. UXM 515 is shaping up to be an excellent issue.

Best,
centurion

her smile is creepy. she looks familiar, like an American celebrity on tv but I can't name her. she's also wearing clothes for once which is nice, but it looks like she stole it from Jean lol.

I looked at the scans from UXM 515 a second time. Nice interaction between Storm and Emma. It was about to get nasty :) I would have loved Betsy to counter Emma's pessimism rather than Storm, but Betsy was too distraught over Dr. Takeguichi's death.

The smile is hideous...

But,overall,it's not bad.Thanks for the scans,luckystar.Rest in peace,Doctor.

Ack the Betsy was hit by the Joker gas!!! Ugg her first 2 frames are awful!!

The rest of the Betts frames are nice. Nice to see Betts in street clothes.

Betsy has a very "mojoverse" smile in that one pic... creepy.

No wonder the poor man died, after seeing that smile! It was a touching scene otherwise.

To me it looks like Land still is trying out what he wants Betsy to look like,It seems he took on fans critisism about the asian eyes thing,and tried to correct it.He isnt a bad guy,which is why i feel bad for him when people bitch.He IS a Psylocke fan after all (Well im guessing,he does like the Strong,busty superhero girl type lol) Im happy with the slow re-intro to Betts as a charater too.and i agree with centurionIts VERY Aussie outback (which i LOVE!!)

Great to see Betsy close with all the X-club members.

@PsySpears - It's nice that he's trying to do that, and Betsy looks pretty in it. My biggest complaint is that she looks nothing like she looked in Uncanny X-Men #511. I think it's good that Land remembered to draw her like an Asian woman, but he could try to still keep some similarities from his older depiction of her. The way he did the change, it looks like #515 Psylocke is one person and #511 Asian Psylocke is another person.

Nevertheless, despite the weird smile she shows in the second panel, Psylocke looks great, and to my surprise, her scene with Dr. Takiguchi is really touching! I'll give Land many points for that!

@FSaker - You got it, buddy! I agree. It was a very touching moment. And it shows that Betsy is not a one dimensional, ninja babe.

@FSaker - Good job at noticing the artistic differences between UXM 511 and 515 Betsy. I will reiterate that the scans of Betsy in 515 are gorgeous.
