With time running out, what sacrifice will one X-Man make to save the lives of their teammates?

That Uncanny X-Men cover was announced many weeks ago, and I still cannot accept Marvel allowed THAT for the cover of the last issue of one of its most memorable books. Granted, it's just going to be renumbered, but Uncanny still deserved better than that.

I hope Psylocke gets a good panel time in X-Men Regenesis. Also, Uncanny X-Force's solicitation says that the team needs to regroup, so we can understand now why she wasn't mentioned in the solicitation for the previous issue. That means Betsy will likely return for the end of the arc... which is great; I hope Remender keeps writing her for many and many months to come!
