Retrospective 2009: Psylocke



Hey everyone! The year is almost ending, and this is probably the last post of 2009. I'm going to take a few days off and travel for a time. This is the place where you can talk about everything that happened to Psylocke in 2009: your favorite stories, favorite writers, favorite artists, favorite quotes, etc. And here's a little recap to refresh your memory. Have fun and Happy New Year!

Absolutely wonderful, it's great to see how far our Betsy has come. From somewhere off in Claremont's corner in the universe, to coming back to be a B-List superstar (B-List meaning she's not used and abused like Cyclops, Wolverine, Emma, and Namor).

wow congrats Betsy, she's almost one of the front runners. finally 2009 she achieved what she never could- A list status. before she was always in Jean's shadow and now she's her own entity. i hope she keeps both tk and tp from now on so she stands out from the other women with mental powers. the year started out amazing since i am a fan of her british body and costumes and had such hope, but i guess ninja is better than no psylocke at all and it sets her apart from the rest. hope next year just gets better with a new writer and artists!

All this greatness was mostly achieved within six months! (around last June, when she officially rejoined the X-Men) it's fun to see what happens in just a few months!

Wait until we see in the whole year of 2010! With the conclusion of her mini, Second Coming and whatever sort of relaunch approaches shortly after!

Happy new years Psylocke fans!

This is a fantastic recap of Betsy's best moments of 2009. It was a strong year for her revival and return to the A-List of X-Men characters. I can only see greater things coming in Psylocke's future in the upcoming new year. I would love to see another mini and a greater role across all X-related books. 2009 proved that Betsy is at her best when she is among the 616 X-Men, not in another obscure dimension.

yeah u did good with the recap, definitely a great year for Betsy hoping she pops out more next year.
Also hoping she doesn't wear that god awful costume during her Exiles stint

FSaker said...

Wow, that's an amazing recap! I hope it was fun to make it, because that definitely must have demanded some hard work!

2009 is probably Psylocke's greatest year since the time she left the X-Men to live with Warren. She did so much this year, she appeared in so many huge titles this year, it's wonderful! As Mr. Hellfire said, I don't think she's already back to the A-List, but her B-List status is great when we remember that last year she was stuck with the New Exiles.

Merry Christmas (I should have written this a couple of days earlier, I know...), Happy New Year, and let's hope that 2010 is a year full of Psylocke appearances in our favorite comic books!

centurion said...

@FSaker - Merry Christmas (belated) to you as well.

@lejo said...

Lewis Carr said...

Hey guys, been following this site for a while but this is my first post! Might as well start at the end of the year, eh?

Great job on keeping me up to date on all the Psylocke, the nerd in me really appreciates it! Everytime I open the page and there's an update, I am actually so happy it's not even funny, aha. Oh, easily entertained.

But this year's been great for Betsy, even if she hasn't really done that much. She's escaped the evil clutches of Chris Claremont at long last and now, perhaps, she can make an impact on 616. Long live Elisabetta!

Peace.

Let's see. Fav stories: Origin of the Species, Kill Matsu'o and Necrosha. Fav artist: Yanick Paquette. Fav writer: Yost. Fav quote: Psylocke is stronger and I'm going home.

centurion said...

@Dr. Doom - Yes. Yanick Paquette does a beautiful Psylocke that's for sure.

Dr. Doom said...

I wonder if I would enjoy Fraction's run more if he had better artists. I absolutely loved Uncanny #512. I find Dodson's work dull and lifeless. And I don't even need to comment on Land's "art"...

The Ice King said...

I like that Psylocke costume in the pic that was posted by the anonymous person-and I love the recap. 2009 has been a great year for Psylocke and she hasn't even been back with the X-Men that long. I'm glad she's in the forefront-GO ELIZABETH!!!!
