Hm... she looks pretty, but that pose isn't very flattering. It makes her look kinda animal-ish, rather than an attractive woman.

But it's not a bad rendition of Psylocke at all.

Attractive women can look animal-ish! haha.
We all know her character is nothing like the prim Betsy from the 80s anyway & she's been this warrior type for a good long time now.
Anyway, Emma looks awesome. I swear I've seen that Betsy pose before though. I just feel like its lifted from something before. I could be wrong.. anyway, awesome Emma & I'd like the Betsy but I know I've seen that pose!!
Forget whiny Scott as the leader, give Emma a team & retire that toth. haha

I don't like Psylocke's pose, or how it looks like she is at Emma's feet.

I don't have a problem with Psylocke's pose, but I don't like her growl-like expression. I love the way Emma looks.

I wish Psylocke had more (or at least some) interaction with Northstar. They're both snarky and interesting.

Brian,

Couldn't agree more. I think they'd get along famously and would love them to be on the same roster or strike team post Schism. In fact, Dazzler needs to connect them as she close with each autonomously. I'd like all three to be on the same roster with Wolvie after Schism. (Northstar and Dazz are way too marginalized.) I'd be in ho heaven if Wolvie's team was the Outback roster with additions, like Northstar and Cecilia Reyes.

The artist spent more time on Emma. Hopefully Psylocke doesn't get cover up when they put the barcode on the comic.

i quite like Cho's art...and i think that pose is good, it's just the brutal expression does not belong to Betsy who is much more an elegant type.

FSaker said...

@treysome - Good point! I really hope Psylocke isn't covered up by the barcode, that would suck!

@Francis - Exactly! That's what I meant in my first comment!

emma looks great. i don't like psylocke in this pic. and to the person who said betsy isn't prim like the 80s, she definitely has always been prim. even when cc brought her back in the 2000s, she had an attitude and demeanor similar to emma. even in her asian body she's been a classy british lady. i see her as an upscale woman more than a gritty fighter. when she fights there's always an elegance to her.

Looking at the cover again, the barcode should be placed over Rockslide's leg. That way, no character would be obscured by it, as Rockslide is big enough in this picture and his head and a good part of his torso would still be visible to the readers - whereas placing the barcode on the bottom left would cover the vast majority of Psylocke's body...
