Uncanny X-Force #12 Art


Uncanny X-Force #12 Spoilers



Spoilers: At the AoA X-Men’s base, Logan and AoA Jean spend time together and get to know each other. She explains that ten years ago, her husband AoA Wolverine and a team of X-Men gathered to kill whoever was inside a ship that landed on their world, though none returned anymore. A Sentinel shows up and attacks them. The X-Men realize more Sentinels will be coming after them, and that a life seed may be their only solution, as their enemy is the “Heir of Apocalypse.” Fantomex gathers one team to search for the life seeds, while AoA Jean leads another team in order to rescue Gateway, who’s being kept prisoner by the Akkaba. Gateway is the only one who can return X-Force back to the 616 Universe. Fantomex tells Psylocke that she’s not in love with Warren anymore; she’s in love with Warren needing her. Betsy is pissed off, and tells him he’s wrong. Fantomex says there’s fire between them and kiss her. Psylocke runs away, saying she won’t give up on Warren. AoA Jean’s team arrives at the Prison. Logan tells her that when it’s all over she and her teammates should come back with them to Earth-616. Suddenly, they are surprised by the Black Legion, a team of villains. The AoA X-Men and X-Force realize they have no chance against them, and run away looking for Gateway, the only one who can get them out of there. Out of the blue, AoA Wolverine appears, and kills Kirika.

San Diego Comic-Con X-Men Panel

News from the Comic-Con International in San Diego with Marvel's X-Men panel. On hand for the discussion were Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso, Director of Communications Arune Singh, Marjorie Liu, Daniel Way, Rick Remender, Chris Yost, and Peter David. Excerpts from CBR, Newsarama, and Marvel.com.

Psylocke

Asked about Psylocke's seeming loss of telekinesis, Remender said it's simply a power he's not interested in using. It would be arguable whether she is or isn't, he just chooses to not use it. She's got a bit of mystery about her. The team will be going to Otherworld and dealing with a lot of the original Psylocke stories.

He added that "Uncanny X-Force" will also try to sort out Psylocke's convoluted history, and noted that if all her powers were included, that too would be convoluted. "Does she still have bionic eyes, do I deal with all the Spiral stuff? If you try to work in everything that's been done with Betsy Braddock over forty years, I'd blow my brains out."

Remender said he's making the choice not to use that power, but he won't definitively say that she doesn't have it anymore.

Uncanny X-Force

Remender spoke about the current “Dark Angel Saga” in “Uncanny X-Force,” which takes place in the Age of Apocalypse universe. Singh added that “Schism” would affect all X-Men teams, X-Force included. Rick Remender is running down the storyline, which has been building since issue 1. Right now the team is in the Age of Apocalypse, and of course nothing works out. Looking at a cover that features Deadpool, "I think that's the new Blob, and what looks like a giant Iceman," according to Remender.

"Iceman has a big role to play in a book coming out toward the end of the year," Singh said in response to a fan question about the character. "The Age of Apocalypse Iceman plays a huge role in Uncanny X-Force." Iceman: He's never had Cyclops or Wolverine's respect. Who is he going to pick? Iceman has a big role to play in one of the books that is coming out at the end of the year. And the Age of Apocalypse Iceman is going to be a part of the X-Force series.

Will Wolverine still be in X-Force after Schism? Remender doesn't want to give anything away, but he and Jason Aaron are talking back and forth to make sure everything synchs up. "X-Men," "X-Men Legacy," "Generation Hope," and "X-Force" will continue beyond Schism, Alonso and Singh said. "None of them are on the chopping block," Alonso added, saying there are covers for the rest of the year "and beyond." Each series will have a role to play. Singh later added that the same applies to "New Mutants."

Kieron Gillen Talks Psylocke

Straight from his Formspring account, Uncanny X-Men writer Kieron Gillen is asked about Psylocke:

Psylocke has a long history that has been twisted by many writers. What do you think her powers are? Remender writes her as an omega-level telepath... do you feel the same? What is your take on her? After all, she is fabulous!

Kieron Gillen: I'm doing a little more of her soon enough, so probably wait and see that. She's an X-perts column soon as well, I believe.

Schism #1 Spoilers

Spoilers: Cyclops wants Wolverine to travel with him to Switzerland and back him up, as Scott is attending an international arms conference with world leaders. Logan is not too crazy about the idea, and ends up arguing with Scott on their way there. At the meeting, Cyclops gives his speech, encouraging nations to stop the Sentinel program once and for all. Kid Omega breaks into the room and mentally force the world leaders to reveal their deepest and darkest secrets. Quentin Quire leaves, and Cyclops and Wolverine are left to deal with his mess. The world leaders accuse mutants of terrorism and activate a Sentinel to hunt Kid Omega. Cyclops and Wolverine take it out and return to Utopia. Meanwhile, Kid Omega spreads his anti-human hate speech on the TV. As a response, several nations all over the world activate hundreds of Sentinels heading to Utopia. Elsewhere, Kade Kilgore, the 12-year-old son of an arms manufacturer, kills his father. The kid then attends a secret meeting, where he reveals he secretly freed Kid Omega and took over his father's business, setting up the pieces to a new anti-mutant hysteria. Kade Kilgore is then hailed the new Black King of the Hellfire Club.

X-Men: Schism - Choosing Sides

Newsarama: What side of the battle will the various X-Men choose? X-Men: Schism #1 debuts this week, kicking off what looks to be the most significant X-Men storyline since House of M. The X-Men are about to face a threat so great that it tears them down the middle. By the end of this event, Cyclops and Wolverine will have a falling out, and each will leave to form their own faction of X-Men. Following the conclusion of Schism, Jason Aaron will chronicle the adventures of Wolverine's team in Wolverine and the X-Men, while Kieron Gillen will spotlight Cyclops' group in a new volume of Uncanny X-Men.

We don't know much yet about this mysterious threat and the cause of the philosophical split. However, given the state of X-Men affairs these past few years, we do feel that we can make some predictions as to which side the major X-Men characters will fall on. Team Cyclops or Team Wolverine? These character profiles will help get you caught up to speed and debating on whose side each X-Man will choose.

Psylocke: As another member of the clandestine X-Force squad, Psylocke is all but certain to stick by Wolverine in this fight. Psylocke understands better than most X-Men what sacrifices are needed to protect the mutant race. Her methodology may be too extreme for Cyclops, but Wolverine understands her all too well.

There is always the chance that Psylocke will turn away from X-Force and seek a life that doesn't involve murdering children and traveling to alternate universes. In that case, a little distance from Wolverine and X-Force may be just what Psylocke needs. But for now, it's a safe bet she'll be joining Team Wolverine. Team Wolverine

Psylocke in Super Hero Squad Online

Psylocke will be coming to Marvel Super Hero Squad Online soon! This comic-con in San Diego, they will be giving out codes to unlock Psylocke as a playable character. For now, she is only part of the card game and has several abilities including the Butterfly Effect and her trademark Psychic Knife. Thanks to JeanGreyForever at the CBR forums for the information and images below!




Drawing Crazy Patterns – The Focused Totality of Psylocke’s Telepathic Powers!

CBR: In this feature, Brian Cronin from CBR spotlights five scenes/moments from within comic book stories that fit under a specific theme (basically, stuff that happens frequently in comics). Today he examines five instances where Psylocke described her psychic knife as the “focused totality of my telepathic powers.” Enjoy!

After a few near-misses (with phrases similar but not exactly the same), the phrase made its debut in Uncanny X-Men #271… It next popped up in #276

Then again in #277 (note that both issues were Skrulls posing as Psylocke, but come on, it totally still counts!)…

The final use during Claremont’s first X-Men run occurred in X-Men #1

The first person to use it other than Claremont was his longtime creative partner, Alan Davis, who broke the phrase out in Excalibur #56

Fear Itself: Uncanny X-Force #1 Spoilers

Spoilers from X-Man's Comic Blog: This issue gets started with two separate threats for X-Force to deal with. The first one is a crazy suicide bomber who screamed out the word “Purify!” before killing a bunch of people, the second is a quick Internet video showing what appeared to be a tied up, super-powered kid in what would seem to be a pretty dire situation. X-Force feels the two events are both connected to those crazy Purifiers, and decide to get some answers. To that end they sneak into the penthouse of a secret Purifier financier and kidnap him. With the rich bigot tied up, Wolvie threatens to let Psylocke loose in his mind unless he talks. Not wanting a dirty mutant mucking around in his brains, the bigot tells X-Force the name of the Purifier's leader, Jonathan Standish, as well as the most likely location of the kidnapped kid, an abandoned military base in Baltimore. X-Force rushes to the scene and tears through the Purifiers stationed there, but are unable to find the kid. Wolvie grabs one of the Purifiers and threatens to do him grievous bodily harm(what, he did!) unless the Purifier gave up the whereabouts of the kid. Unfortunately for Wolvie and company, this Purifier explains that his group didn't have the kid, and that Standish was leading a splinter group of the Purifiers... And what of Standish? After seeing the actions of the Serpent's Worthy on television, he has come to the conclusion that the Purifiers were wrong to only target mutants, since all superhumans were obviously wicked abominations. With that, he enters the room with the captured kid, turns on the camera, puts the gun to the kid's head and warns everybody to save themselves from the hell superhumans had made the Earth by taking their lives. With that, he pulls the trigger and ends this issue.
