they look amazing! is this Coipel work? he sure is one of the best artist... the hardcore psychic team is tough, who's the brown-haired girl with them?

Kike Galván said...

i think she's rachel grey, don't u think that???

Chris said...

No. It's Jean's psionic ghost.

treysome said...

The girl with brown hair with an X on her cheek is probably Uniscone. It's good to see British Betsy.

I love the psychic team (especially Jean and Psylocke, my two favs!)

Chris said...

I'm not feeling her as Psylocke... The hair color is all wrong. She looks like a grown-up Pixie instead of British Betsy. Her hair should be lavender or purple. :(

Rahsaan said...

Though I adore Emma, it's nice to see a psychic brigade that does not include her and her Cukoos.

FSaker said...

@Francis - No, it's Clay Mann's art. But his style does resemble Coipel's, doesn't it?

And are we sure this is a psychic team? The guy with the mohawk may be Erg (who doesn't have psychic powers), although some people believe him to be Legion; and the brunette girl doesn't resemble any telepath or telekinetic mutant. Unless Unuscione's powers are telekinetic.

As for Revenant, it seems Carey wants us to speculate whether she's Jean, Jean's ghost, the Phoenix Force impersonating Jean or another redhead Phoenix-user (Madelyne, Rachel... not Hope though, Carey has already said Revenant is not Hope).

She looks awesome! Her costume is amazing. I would love it if 616 Bets had a similar costume. I really hope her character is used well in this.

psyknight said...

I disagree with Chris. She doesn't look like Pixie to me. Her hair looks very lavender to me, instead of pink like Pixie. I'm surprised no one said she looked like Pixie in the first image of "Age of X" Betsy we got because her hair looked cotton candy pink to me there.

whitephoenix said...

I thought the pink-haired woman in the first Age of X image was Pixie, but this one is certainly Betsy. The mohawk guy could be Legion or even Quentin Quire. The girl is Unuscione who has a psionic exo-skeleton.

Ben said...

I kinda agree with Chris. She looks more like adult Pixie than British Betsy. And her costume is kinda ugly (I love Rogue's costume!). But hey, what really matters is that we know it's Psylocke, and Crey will do a fantastic job with her, right? :p

Also, Jean and Betsy seem to be only telekinetics. I wonder why we haven't seen any telepath so far... Where are Emma, Xavier, Cuckoos... Intriguing! (Karma isn't a proper telepath, so there must be some secret up there)

whitephoenix said...

I'm sure Jean has tp, not so sure about Betsy however. I doubted Betsy having tp at first but now I'm sure she has it. As for Emma, I'm glad she is not in the story. Would ruin it like all the other stuff lol.

Francis said...

@FSaker...that's right but i bet he's either legion or kid omega, as for unuscione her powers are in a sense telekinetically related...so this should not be psychic but a teke division more appropriately...someone already noticed a total lack of telepaths around. we're gonna find out

Francis said...

in the age of x communiqué about Revenant (the Phoenix girl) it's stated she's "one of the mutants who renew the force walls when they start to fail under bombardment" ...this must be the human force field team

King Of Spades said...

Why is every guy on this arc shirtless?????

:S

Adam said...

I noticed that too! What a sexy reality!

April 2011 solicitations: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=30384

No covers for Betsy :( But TWO Uncanny X-Force issues, the two final Age of X issues (let's hope she doesn't become a casualty before these two issues), and although Gillen said Psylocke wouldn't be featured in his issues, maybe she gets a wallpaper cameo or two...

Sky said...

The browned hair girl is Sofia Mantega (Wind-dancer)

Quillakasha Creative said...

Mwa haha Adam I second that emotion

whitephoenix said...

If it is Wind Dancer and not Unuscione then I guess it is not a psychic team. The mohawk guy may be Beserker then if he is not Quentin Quire or Legion.
