Uncanny X-Force #21 Spoilers

Spoilers: Fantomex is injected with an anti-reality serum, and Betsy comes to his rescue. Brian chases them, but Betsy knocks him out. Meanwhile, The Goat uses the Orb of Metallum to destroy Wolverine. Nightcrawler then uses his teleportation to get the Orb destroyed, freeing Logan. The Goat is upset and tells Kurt he shouldn’t be there, before ordering his army to retreat. At the Starlight Citadel, Betsy looks for the door to Earth-616, when she is attacked by Jamie. Betsy flees once more, carrying Fantomex with her. Brian’s guards tell him The Goat has taken most of Otherworld. Brian is worried about Meggan, who’s guarding the Village of the South Woode. The guard notes that The Goat has three orbs, one which controls metal and earth, one which controls the laws of physics and one which brings life to the dead. Brian and Jamie conclude that their enemy holds the orbs of Necromon. Nightcrawler, Wolverine and the decapitated Deadpool meet Meggan and her army in the woods, meanwhile Betsy and Fantomex head to the Forest of Sorrows. Betsy seeks Krokwel, the Lord of the Forest who once was banished by Merlyn and Sir James Braddock for his use of forbidden magics. Betsy wants him to heal Fantomex in exchange for Krokwel’s freedom. Krokwel assures Betsy that the cost will be steeper than she could possibly expect. Brian finds the orbs of Necromon still in Merlyn’s chamber and doesn’t understand how The Goat could be in possession of their replicas as there are no such things in the Omniverse. Meggan and X-Force find The Goat’s headquarters where he is planning to use somebody who had suffered at Betsy and Fantomex’ hands to deal with both of them.

Always more intriguing. Impressive how I always reach the end of this always expecting the next. I had not much knowledge about Otherworld and now I am curious to know what will be the bargain that Elizabeth will have to deal with. I haven't got used to the art totally yet, but I think it is really expressive.
Anyone can presume more accurately if this is british or oriental Betsy?

And anyone has any idea of who could be the person in the last page?? Who could hate Betsy and Fantomex ??

Just a question, If Jamie brought Betsy back from the dead when Vargas stabbed her and now he's switched her body back then why can't he pull a few strings and bring back Warren's memories or even Jean?

What I really liked about this issue is that Betsy finally sounds British for once!

And another question how does Wolverine know so much about Otherworld has he actually been there before or is this knowledge just what he's learnt from knowing Betsy and Brian and I guess the Excaliber lot?

So the guy at the last panel's the "Skinless Man". He (well, his statue) appeared in UXF 18: http://www.comicbookresources.com/prev_img.php?disp=img&pid=1323803960.

@Miss_Braddock: Jamie probably can do all this stuff... he just doesn't want to. His powers involve altering the reality, so technically I don't think there is any limitation to him. But so far, it seems he has no interest in reviving any of the fallen X-Men (he isn't even interested in saving Fantomex's life, even though he knows his sister wants her friend alive); besides, I don't know if he ever met Warren or Jean...

I know that's right, Miss Braddock! She sounds very English. Love that! I'm hoping that we'll totally see a return to the glam, fashionista Elizabeth, but that she still is able to kick a punk's ass any day of the week.

One thing I do hope though (if I get my wish and she stays in her real body) is that they at least modernize her look. We don't need the big 80s hair.

I'm getting a little iffy on this arc, which is sad as I had such great hopes for it.

Really, I'm just hoping that there's not going to be yet another undo with Betsy being in her English body and I'd hate to see her go all gooey over Fantomex so soon after losing Warren. Maybe I'm pessimistic, but I see things going that way :(
