X-Position: X-Editors

CBR: Joining us for some fun are Senior Editor and X-Men Group Editor Nick Lowe, along with editors Daniel Ketchum, Jordan D. White and Jeanine Schaefer. Let's quickly get started before they leap away…


How is Husk dealing with Angel's new identity? We haven't really seen them interact for a while, and I, for one, loved their relationship. And on the topic of Angel, what will Psylocke's reaction be when she sees the young Angel that comes from the past post-AvX?

Nick Lowe: Husk isn't really dealing very well with anything, frankly. She's not in the best shape mentally or physically right now, so Angel hasn't weighed too heavily on her mind. As for Psylocke, I'd imagine she'll react much like any adult would if a time-traveling version of someone you love showed up. Here's my summation: "Ah! That's weird. He looks so young! What's going on here? I think I'm going to peace out and go get a cup of coffee and collect my thoughts."

I think she'll have tea.

Yeah, definitely tea. With muffins and milk.

Lowe says that he imagines "she'LL react". That is, "she WILL react", not "she WOULD react". Can we assume that she will survive the Final Extinction arc in UXF, then? I guess Remender would be the ideal writer to write her death scene if she ever needs one, I'm sure it would be epic, but I'd prefer her to stay alive a little longer, please...

Now that I'm reading my previous comment, the mention about muffins and milk sounds quite perverted... and that wasn't intentional at all (I only listed them because I read about many people in England drinking tea with milk, and that sometimes they eat little sandwiches or muffins with the tea). Oh well...

Anyway, lots of Psylocke this week. She appears in AvX #11 (not just in the preview pages; she's actually quite visible in a couple of panels during the fight against Cyclops and Emma, although she does nothing); Uncanny X-Men #18 (only one panel and no lines, but it's a big panel and she's very visible in it - nice art, by the way); X-Men #35 (where we find out that the "Psylocke vs. Domino" actually isn't a fight per se, just some words exchanged); and Uncanny X-Force #31 (and the first page isn't good news to us if it does happen by the end of this arc)...

Re: X-Men #35. It wasn't just a mere exchange of words, it was a lot more than that. It was Psylocke letting Domino know fully well where she stands with Storm and the team.

I LOVED that issue.
