What'd I miss? Why the splint?

this looks like a good issue, I love the Magneto/Psylocke banter.

Aww man, if there was ever a time Betsy needed her shadow slipping powers back...

Psylocke82 said...

What DID we all miss?!! I'm guessing our psychic ninja took on Daredevil. And I hope she kicked his ass, but by the looks of it Betsy looks to have had some struggles. I know Betsy just became a full fledged omega-level telepath, but when is she going to be able to utilize her telekinesis...its been forever since I've seen her in action with it. I think that'd really come in handy in a rematch I feel is coming with a one Mr. Victor Creed of the 616.

Uh, I actually think she didn't battle Daredevil yet. Their battle will only be shown in AVX:VS #4 in July (meaning that they will probably meet each other in AvX #7 or #8). Plus, they weren't even in the same place: Betsy was with Magneto, Iceman and Angel (and supposedly Boom-Boom as well) in Mount Wundagore; Daredevil was in Latveria.

She was probably injured by either Hawkeye, Red Hulk or Dr. Strange. Whoever it was, we know that both sides had their injuries (remember Psylocke psi-stabbing Hawkeye in the head in AvX #4, Angel punching Hawkeye in the face and Iceman crushing Red Hulk). And I suppose her arm will be fine before this event ends.

does anyone get the sexual tension between eric and betsy?

Psylocke82 said...

Oh yeah, I've noticed it @PsySpears!!! I really like the fact she interacts with him a lot. I kinda see them being put on a team together more so than they are now.

FSaker said...

I wouldn't define their interactions as "sexual tension". It's more like a "frenemy" relation: they respect each other, but at the same time their relation is uneasy, due to Magneto constantly remembering Psylocke that he knows about her activities in the X-Force. After all, let's not forget that Magneto is Rogue's boyfriend nowadays...

But their interaction is interesting. I wonder where Gillen will take this interaction... it's interesting when we remember that Betsy knew Magneto as an ally before she knew him as an enemy, so they have the potential to become close friends (if Magnus stops teasing her with the secrets he knows about the X-Force).

There's no sexual tension between Magneto & Psylocke. They are bother proper snobs, therefore they are going to clash. Not to mention Psylocke is already on nerves with Magneto since he knows the existence of X-Force.

That is all. Don't read too much into it.
