X-Position: Nick Lowe

CBR: Nick Lowe got his football helmet on and is biting down on his mouthguard – he's ready to play! Let's kick a few queries his way and see if we can get one through the uprights.

"Uncanny X-Force" was amazing – easily the best X-book right now! Rick Remender mentioned that his X-Force team was already chosen when he was attached to the book. So why did you pick these characters? I'm especially interested in why Psylocke was chosen, but it's always a pleasure to read a good-written Betsy.

Nick Lowe: That's an easy question. Axel loves Psylocke – plain and simple. He just loves her. So that's pretty much why she's there. As for the rest, we knew that Warpath, X-23 and Wolfsbane weren't going to be signing up for such a team again, and we wanted to formulate a cast that would get people talking. Seems like it worked.

And please settle this debate for me – how do you say Psylocke? Is it pronounced like "lock" or "low-ke?"

Nick Lowe: We say "Sy-lock" up here at the House.

Who the hell says Low-ke? That's dumb.

Well, I guess it depends from the country where the person is pronouncing it. In Brazil, for instance, many people pronounce "Psylocke" as "Psee-LOH-ckee" ("loh" being the strongest syllabe)
