Cool! Nice to see the fun fact about Psylocke once being the Hand's prime assassin, and Daredevil recognizing the way she fights (possibly similar to Elektra). And was she telepathically controlling the pigeons to distract him? If she was, that's awesome!

Too bad she will most likely lose this battle, only to let Emma win hers against Thor and make both teams even in the "score" of victories... on the other hand, one can always hope this won't be the case...

I'm afraid they're going to give Daredevil a telepathy immunity device. I find this route to be incredibly lazy writing. Psylocke could have easily gotten a "radar sense" immunity device from Dr. Nemesis or Madison Jeffries.

Brian said...

Yeah, I said it before; having your own series grants you a mysterious immunity to psionics. Sadly, I tink she'll lose this one.

Hm Remender has been surprising us in everything related to her...wouldn't be weird if all our bets turned out wrong...but I agree with you all about the odds...

In a fight versus a combatant with no mental powers, the telepath should ALWAYS win. This is what I call garbage writing.

FSaker said...

Hey, it's Remender writing. Psylocke may lose, but the writing will definitely be awesome (and Psylocke will be awesome in the fight, even if she loses).

And who knows, she may win in the end... Daredevil doesn't appear in Wakanda in the end of AvX #7 after the fight against Psylocke, so maybe he loses and gets captured.

She could just put him in a coma. She has the power to predict his EVERY single move. But of course, she's written as too ninja for her powers again. Oh the 90s are back.
Anyone know how big the AvX event is? I only read UXF & x factor haha. I feel like they have too many big event after big events.

FSaker said...

@QKC - It is BIG. I mean, unlike other events (Secret Invasion, Fear Itself, etc.), AvX is being contained to the main book and only the Avengers and X-Men books; however, its effects will be huge to the Marvel Universe. Plus, remember that basically all Marvel solo heroes (plus part of the Fantastic Four) have become Avengers, while the X-Men have gathered people like Namor and Magneto, and you'll realize that both teams have the vast majority of Marvel heroes nowadays.

BTW, according to spoilers, the fight between Psylocke and Daredevil ended in a draw (although he was technically the moral winner... but she's the one who decided to stop the fight even though she had the opportunity to finish him off).
