Marvel Reveals "Gold Team" & Psylocke (Again!)



On Wolverine's Gold Team are: Psylocke in "Uncanny X-Force", Quentin Quire and Beast in "Wolverine & The X-Men" and Strong Guy and Siryn in "X-Factor".

Oops!...She did it again. What do you think it's going on with Psylocke?

YES!!!! Our girl's here too!


And Beast looks awesome!

Alexander said...

She's either a double agent for Logan or for the sake of her mind she does the general heroics with Scott but also realizes that she is needed on a squad like X-force. I still see no Angel. But if he does die or os just sidelined somehow a teleporter can be just as good,if not better, as a team flyer.

Betsy the woman of exceptions!!
Now let's hope it Lorna next to Alex and we're set to go~

Braxton Garris said...

wow, this image of Psylocke turned out way better than I expected.

My final Predictions for the remainder of the reveals (not that anyone cares lol) :
GOLD TEAM
UXF: Fantomex
Wolverine & XMen: AOA Jean
XMen Legacy: Rachel/Marvel Girl??
X-Factor: Longshot, Multiple Man, and Polaris!

BLUE TEAM
Generation Hope: Weird artist dude that transforms into stuff (binary?)
XMen: I think Domino (Maybe Kitty, I keep thinking I see Lockheed on her shoulders. Maybe she is playing both sides b/c of Peter?)
UXM: Magneto, Cyclops (but we already know this)
New Mutants: Magma, and Doug Ramsey(Cipher).

The weird artist dude is Kenji (aka Rei).

I don't think AoA Jean is coming to 616. That would ruin 616 Jeans eventual return.

I'm still thinking that the figure in X-Men cover is Karma. But Domino is not a bad guess.

And I like Psylocke's bubblebutt in the X-Force cover....

Brian said...

I love it. Psylocke makes the perfect double agent, skill- and power-wise.

whitephoenix said...

Agreed Brian. And Braxton Garris's list is the same as mine!

Miss_Braddock said...

YES! fantastic news I so can;t wait to find out her role in both teams.

Chris said...

Somehow I doubt she's a double agent. Why would Wolverine need a spy? It's not like Cyclops wants to take over the world or something.

I think Betsy agrees with Cyclop's mindset and still works with X-Force. Plain and simple.

The Great Black North said...

I think the girl with the huge fire blast behind her is Firestar because she's a mutant and all.

Brian said...

Ooh!! As a child of the 80s I adore Firestar and would love to see her as an X-Man. I always just assumed it would never happen since the fiery flying redhead post is perpetually filled in the X-Universe.

Rahsaan said...

It would be great if Angelica and Vance were more involved with the plight of mutants, actually. However, I do definitely appreciate the fact they're also integrated in with the non-mutant sector.

It'd be really interesting if she was on Wolvie's side verus Cyke's due to that fact.

Braxton Garris said...

ooooo.. Firestar! I didn't even think about her, and I love her so I don't know why she didn't cross my mind. I still think its either Rachel or AOA Jean. I'd much rather see AOA Jean come to 616 than have regular 616 Jean ever return. She makes the X-Men more dynamic when she stays dead in my opinion.

what other X-Women have fire-like powers that may fit this role?

Does anyone else think Quentin Quire's outfit looks dumb? (they did a GREAT job with beast though!)

beans said...

It may be just me, but I just can't seem to fit Marvel Girl in that silhouette.

How about Oya/Idie Okonkwo (one of the Five Lights who controls temperature)? I know it could be very unlikely, since she IS one of the five lights and all, but I just noticed she's not in the Generation Hope cover as well. (Ok, tchyeah, covers aren't to be taken literally.) Just throwing in another guess? Hehe.

metalgorgomon said...

@beans,
I think I've read somewhere that Rachel/Marvel Girl will be having a new costume. I think she's either one of the flying girl (my guess is the legacy one- you can see the spikes on her arms)

Nevertheless, I also think Oya/Idie will be in Wolverine's side. I believe the other WATXM teaser has a shadow of a girl with an afro.

Braxton Garris said...

If it were Idie, wouldn't the other half of her body be shooting ice or something cold? Every time I've seen her she is using both powers. It is possible though, I like that guess.

I can also see those spikes on the Legacy teaser character now too, I didn't notice them before but I still thought it to be Marvel Girl (I hope they bring Rachel back bad-ass, she has kinda lost her edge in my opinion over the last few years, just a little)

I'm so excited to read X-Factor now that they finally gave Rictor his powers back! Plus, Havok and maybe Polaris, Shatterstar and non-pregnant Wolfsbane.. it can't get any better!

FSaker said...

One player for both sides. I guess that makes Marvel a liar for promising that "no one will be in both sides post-Schism at the same time".

But that's good for us, since it means Psylocke can appear in UXM, XM, UXF and WatXM in the same months! That's great!

As for Oya, some people are speculating that she may die by the end of Schism, and that would be the breaking point between Cyclops and Wolverine. I hope she doesn't (Oya is my favorite Light after Hope - and I love ALL the Lights, so Idie being one of my favorite means I love her A LOT), but the future doesn't seem to be very good for her...

Well the woman next to Psylocke in the X-Men cover turned out to be Domino.

swash31 said...

Actually if you look closer in X-Factor it looks like there is 4 people in front of Strong Guy. Hopefully they will not kill off Longshot before they resolve the storyline between him and Shatterstar. I'm guessing they kill off Pip the Troll. My guess of the remaining members is Longshot, Multiple Man, Polaris and a possible shocker Dazzler or Feral. Dazzler would add a interseting dynamic with Longshot and Shatterstar. Hopefully they will not duplicate Multiple Man in the teaser.

Rahsaan said...

All this talk of Ororo being against militant ways reminds me of when Nathan Christopher called her out on her hypocrisy in the War Room after “X-Tinction Agenda.” Does anyone else recall that?

He was telling herm Scott and Jean that Charles' dream of pacifism was a wash, and she got all angry and accused him of being out-of-bounds as a new jack to the fold and said his violent ways were bad.

He then reminded her of her whole "X-Men are dead ruse, so we can be an oppositional strike force covertly without putting our loved ones in harm's way."

Shut her ass right up too. That was good.

Braxton Garris said...

is someone in X-Factor supposed to die? oh no!

Maybe they can just kill off another Dupe cuz I love all the members too much! that book is such a good read!!

The Great Black North said...

@Rahsaan

LOL I'm glad some one put Storm in her place she can come off as very pious and holier then thou sometimes.

Braxton Garris said...

They should give storm a mohawk, spikes, and some leather pants again. lol. It would be nice to see her husband by her side in the X-Men, maybe its time for her to be a mom.(then they could send their child into the future and bring him/her back as a teenager like everyone else lol.)
