I see they switched Psylocke and Rogue again.

I spy Psylocke in the last panel of X-Force lol, I hope she appears in the X-Men series, and that X-Gals preview has some nice Psylocke moments in it!

I guess this may be what Cable's Techno organic virus was being saved for.. "The Sacrifice".. Sad.. but its quite heroic of him.. At least the others survive and get through the portal.

Wow, I didn't see Psylocke in the last X-Force panel when I looked at the page for the first time... thanks, Psychilde!

I don't think she'll play a big part in these last two Second Coming issues, but it's nice to see that she's at least getting some panel time. She already had a nice role in the first month anyway; that's more than 80% of the X-Men had.

X-Women looks surprisingly interesting, and it's good that Manara corrected the panels with Psylocke and Rogue in the beginning. But damn, what is Rachel wearing? Jean and Scott would be VERY ashamed of her...

Jean and Wolvie maybe if you believe the rumours

What the %$*! is Rachel wearing?!?!?! I was excited to buy this, & I'm ok with showing some skin, but in a CLASSY way. That is pure trash.
I wish Psylocke was allowed to have a new costume but I assume she'll be stuck in it until the world ends. haha.
Anyway, I'm so glad to see her being shown as a telekinetic. FLight, blasts, AWESOME. I just wish the girl would cover up. (Although they *are* in the jungles, am i right?)
Storm looks amazing by the way!!

I refuse to comment on the other preview since I do not buy any of the main X titles anymore, since Kurt's "death issue", Psylocke or no. It's just that bad, sorry.

I am VERY disgusted by this "X-Women" trash, and I am so not a feminist and I don't have a problem with half-naked women in the comics, but THIS... It's so unbelievably sexist, I don't know what to say! The panel with Psylocke holding Shadowcat...? Does Kitty absolutely have to have her legs around Betsy's waist or would it still be ok if Psylocke held her with her TK of simply on her hands? What. The HELL. is Rachel wearing and why? And let's not forget this -
Yuck, it's jut too sexist for my tastes, and I can take a lot of sexism. I won't even bother reading this.

As for X-Force - the art is magical as always, even if the writers of all the X-Comics forgot how to write interesting big-deal-stories.

haha i have no problem with overtly sexual imagery, Manara is reknown for his depictions of women so i dont know why people are that shocked at least hes drawing it unlike Land. But for equality when are we getting the male version of this?

I can just see Cable's legs spread around Iceman :P
