Yay! Glad Kitty sided with James! That bond should not broken. Screw Jubilation Lee and Piotr!

Rahsaan said...

BTW, I hope that Longshot is the one to buy the farm in X-Factor. For the first time in a long while. I've always dug him, and was glad someone had matured him some and found a use for him.

FSaker said...

I hope no one in X-Factor really dies; I hope PAD pulls a stunt like he did in the 1990s (when Madrox was supposedly killed, then the following issue revealed it was actually just a dupe).

But if anyone must really die, let it be Pip. Madrox is awesome, and both Longshot and Darwin don't deserve to die after finally becoming interesting characters.

And please Marvel, reveal for once which of the two silhouettes (the one in Uncanny X-Force and the one in X-Men) is Psylocke; the wait is killing me...

Ben said...

Both are Psylocke.

Rahsaan said...

Ben,
No. I don't think so. The covers are supposed to be connected as one whole scene/setting, so Psylocke should not appear twice... even if she's part of both books' rosters.

Ben said...

No. The Blue Team cover does not connect with the Gold Team cover. They're two different covers and Psylocke is in both.

FSaker said...

Yeah Ben, but remember that Marvel has been constantly saying that there will be no character in both Blue and Gold sides of the Schism. So unless they're lying, Psylocke couldn't be in a Blue teaser and in a Gold teaser at the same time.

She can start in one side and eventually leave it and join the other side, but according to the Marvel reps, she could NOT be in both sides at the same time. Not even if she's in one side just as a spy for the other side...

Again, unless they're lying about the whole thing. Which could happen (remember when Fraction swore that the Professor X in the Dark X-Men was the real one?).

Ben said...

But she's NOT in both sides. To me, with the Generation Hope cover and all, it's clear she's siding with the Blue side, while still working in X-Force. X-Force is a different thing. If Wolverine thinks kids shouldn't be trained to kill and Betsy disagrees, that wouldn't interfere with Betsy's membership in X-Force. Of course there'd be drama between Logan and Betsy, choosing different sides and yet having to workd together in X-Force. That's what I think Marvel is aiming for. So technically, Marvel didn't lie. She sides with Scott, but works in X-Force. Well, imo, anyway. We'll see next week.

PSYBOOM said...

u guys are reading too much into this. i really think that Psylocke is with UXF and the other girl is actually Pixie just with her wings retracted. i mean if u remember from the whole limbo arc Pixie's soul dagger had a pick/red energy field so i think thats her. especially since she has been working with Cyclops a lot recently.

PSYBOOM said...

pink*

PSYBOOM said...

however i would LOVE it if the girl with the pink energy turns out to be BLINK.

PSYBOOM said...

i also think that the rest of Wolverine's team is Beast (or AOA Sabertooth) Kid Omega and Marvel girl.

jarim77 said...

The figure in the X-Men cover sems to be wearing a sash and I can't remember the insect thing ever wearing one.

PSYBOOM said...

new costume maybe?

tabacal said...

@Psyboom: wouldn't Pixie's dagger be a lot shorter?, specially when magik's sword its in the same frame...

I do think it can be psylocke, despite what Marvel has told us about no one being on both sides...

Miss_Braddock said...

Where is Warren in all of this I can't pick out his Silouette does he not survive the Dark Angel Saga?

FSaker said...

I guess Marvel decided not to put Warren in any teaser to avoid spoiling the end of the Dark Angel Saga.

The way I see it, there are three possibilities for him:

1) He dies by the end of DAS;

2) He survives, but keeps being a villain;

3) He returns to normal and rejoins the X-Men

If Warren appeared in one of the teasers, we would know that the possibility 3 is the only possible one, while keeping him out of the teasers makes us wonder which of the possibilities will be the correct one.

As for Psylocke being in Blue Side and Gold Side at the same time (secret team or not, X-Force is being considered as a Gold team by Marvel, hence the yellow/gold logo), Marvel says it's not possible. But of course, we want to see Betsy in as many books as possible, so if Marvel takes their words back concerning this statement, I'm sure none of us would be angry at all...

jarim77 said...

@Fsaker

There are more options.

4)He survives, but needs to deal with the his guilt. And he takes a leave to try dealing with it.

Having said that, I do get the feeling that Warren is being set up to lose his life. The murder of those unfortunate people in that town was certainly crossing the moral event horizon. I don't think he will be allowed to get away with that.

(And yes, I know that Magneto for example has done worse things and he wasn't even "possessed" like Warren is but what can you do...)

Matt L said...

These covers keep me wondering. I'm guessing that woman flying with the energy coming from her on Wolverine and the X-men is either Rachel Grey or Polaris. It looks like her hair is long so maybe Polaris? Who knows. I hope they both get starring roles as they have gone unused for quite a while. Also, who is that behind Wolverine with the white circles? I thought it was Havok at first but he's obviously in X-Factor. I think Psylocke could be pulling a double agent thing. She would technically be on one side, she'd just also be spying on another. They also said that Wolverine would be the only person from the last X-Force team to be on this one, but then Archangel was there.

Wendell said...

I think Psylocke will be a double agent and if it's true, it will be great for her

Mtti said...

I'm wondering whats gonna happen to Dazzler and Northstar? also The X-Club.. they prob staying with Cyclops

Brian said...

Oh, what I would give to see Northstar and Psylocke interact.

I am not sure how to contact you so I thought I will post it as a comment :)

Btw, I had no idea who Psylocke was until I stumbled on to your site a week ago looking for ninja's in the Marvel Universe lol. Thanks for maintaining the site :)

Francis said...

Psylocke ranked 48 at CBR Top 100 Marvel Comic Book Characters, just after Susan Storm and Jessica Drew...but she placed herself above Cable and the Vision, i say it's quite a good score.... here's the link

(dunno if you'd be interested,btw sorry for the offtopic luckystar and cmx!)

Brian said...

Nice! Psylocke and Spider-Woman are my two favourite Marvel characters.

The Great Black North said...

The Lady with the huge sun burst behind her can't be Rachel because she lost all her Phoenix force abilities so I was wondering if it was FireStar who is also a mutant

swash31 said...

Still curious about the wereabouts of Namor, Dazzler, X-23, Husk, Northstar(possibly Alpha Flight)The Science Club, Young Xmen and the New Xmen students. I hear there are at least 3 more members on Uncanny Xmen, possibly Namor, Nemesis Pixie or Armor. Still don't care for Danger on the team, even more as a sentient being. Never thought of Firestar as a member quite possible its her flying in background of Wolverine's team and Rachel on Rogue' team. I think I seen solicitaions of maybe Cannonball, New Xmen and Young Xmen members on Wolverine's team but they were in shadow.

swash31 said...

ALos forgot to mention about where is Boom Boom in all this. Hopefully she will not beforgotten

swash31 said...

I still don't and can't see Wolverine as the singular leader of a Xmen team. A strike force team yes. He is the most over used character in Marvel, more than Spiderman and Deadpool. Hope he leaves the Avengers. Calling a title Wolverine and the Xmen is an insult to the rest of the team especially with Beast and Iceman were founding members and are on the team. Still don't understand the addition of Toad and Quintin. Whose next Avanlanche? Plus its hypocritical to add Quintin(Hoping it was Chamber in shadow) on the team when he states he wants to keep kids out of harms way and he wanted to turn him in. Wolverine is a killer as well, now he is going to add him on the team? Then he complains about Cyclops allowing Oya/Idie Okonkwo to do whats necessary to prevent other deaths. I wonder if X-Force will be be exposed. If so, then it would be hypocritical for the rest of the Xmen to join him when they were all opposed of the matter and the secrets of the formation. Would of been better if it had been Storm to take a team since she was against the militant ideas and operations of the way the Xmen was operating. Just my opinion. Should be interesting how this develops.

Braxton Garris said...

I still hope its AOA Jean in the Wolverine Teaser. How mad would Cyclops be if Wolvie and AOA Jean were shacking up on the other team? It would create such an interesting dynamic between everyone.

Namor is starring in the new "Defenders" title. I wonder if the "Namor, The First Mutant" title is going to last? it kinda turned into "Fear itself: The Deep", but will it return?

I feel like Dazzler is defiantly going to be on one of these teams, but just not pictured in the teasers, same with Pixie and Northstar. Its been said that Northstar is still going to be with the X-Men at the same time as Alpha Flight, so he should show up somewhere.

centurion said...

I love this new concept of the re-imagining of the X-Men Blue and Gold Teams. At least Betsy and Logan are on the same team!
