Uncanny X-Men #17 Spoilers

Spoilers: In Sinister London, Magneto, Storm, Psylocke and Danger are attacked by Sabretooth clones. Betsy mentally tricks the clones into gorging themselves. Meanwhile, Sinister has The Phoenix Five captive with their Phoenix portions possessing the Madelyne clones. Unit doesn’t like the idea of someone like Sinister having a fundamental power of the universe, so he commands Danger to get into the castle. As they need a stealth specialist for this, Psylocke wears Danger and heads to the castle, while Magneto and Storm provide distraction for Sinister’s army. One of the Madelynes defeats Storm and Magneto by herself and tracks Psylocke’s localization by taking the information from Erik’s mind. Psylocke orders Danger to head to the castle, while she poisons Magneto, freeing him from Madelyne’s control. Unit realizes there’s nothing they can do to stop Sinister, so he tells Danger to run away. While Sinister is distracted, Emma talks to the Phoenix and convinces it to return to the Phoenix Five. The Phoenix then burns away each and every version Sinister alive. The Phoenix Five meet the others and tell them the war is over and so is Sinister’s species.

Wow! Looks like Psylocke got to do a lot of stuff in this issue... That's nice!

I doubt Sinister is truly dead, but at least he won't bother the X-Men for a while now.

Psylocke managed to get a super badass sequence in this one.

Not one of Gillen's better issues, the action was alright but it was too melo-dramatic for my liking, especially with Storm's "Goddess save me" thing, lol no.

Betsy kicked major ass, though. Even though i couldn't quite wrap my head around it.
