So, the Shadow King may have beaten Psylocke many times throughout Uncanny X-Force, but she had the last laugh. That's good.

And the burning body in the cover turned out to be representing (since that's not how he died) Daken, not Betsy. Good as well.

So, there's still one last issue, right? Since the Brotherhood was defeated, what's left for the final issue? Wolverine disbanding the X-Force? AoA-Nightcrawler being hunted and killed? The debut of Cluster (a.k.a. "Lady Fantomex")? Whatever it is, I hope Psylocke gets to shine a lot in it!

The covers are usually really misleading. Having said that, the scene of Wolverine holding his son does match the images seen in the issue 31.

A had a feeling that Daken might die. His last moments were actually quite touching. Although mostly from Logan's perspective.

The last issue might just be more of a dialogue heavy story. Or at least that's what I would do if I was finishing a run at a comic book.

I knew it would be Daken. Remender foreshadowed it (rather unsubtly) in a previous issue where Psylocke calls out Wolverine on his hypocrisy. Something to the extent of, "I've lost my brother and my lover to this mission... what have you lost?" If you notice carefully, the last scene... when Betsy pilots EVA away after the mission, and everyone is dead silent... mirrors the last scene in issue 4 when everyone is quiet as Fantomex flies them away after killing Kid Apocalypse. Psylocke has come full circle from someone who was unsure of her role on the team, to the sole UXF member who is ABSOLUTELY sure of herself because of the tragedies that personally hit her. Awesome stuff by Remender and Noto.

Yes, I do like how Psylocke has evolves, but this arc was handled poorly. They recycled pages from the previous issue. It's hard not to notice that. This was seriously disappointing, and a rip off.

Purple haired kick ass woman seen on Thunderbolts preview. Any chance???

Another thing that felt recycled were the flashes of the family Logan never had. They were touching but the same idea was already used when Betsy gave Warren the false memories as he was dying.

Eduardo said...

Hmm interesting and different defeat for the Shadow King than I expected. The final confrontation of Wolverine and Daken sure was meant to have a huge meaning on the issue. But I like the involvement given to Psylocke. The Shadow King must be dying in anger kkkkk
It really shows that Betsy closed a cycle in this issue.
Anyone wants to see her taking on Vargas on her own title???

Australian Outback said...

Oh, there is one fantastic detail in this issue that needs to be mentioned.

Remember in the Deathlok Nation arc she killed her Deathlok double by throwing her katana into her at high speed in an aerial chase? She made Archangel go back amidst all the chaos just to pick up that katana.

At the end of this, she takes a long look at the place in a solemn manner and pulls out her katana, which is presumably the same one that she just had to have in Deathlok Nation. She leaves it behind.

Just an amazing detail, that. Symbolic gesture of some kind. Leaving the killing behind? I do have to hand it to Remender. He makes plans with great foresight.

@Eduardo

That sad excuse of a "villain" that you're referring to is dead. Also, he'll probably never be mentioned again in tandem with Psylocke's history, because his mere concept was pure excrement... one of the dumbest, sorriest throwaway antagonists ever created for one of the dumbest, sorriest x-titles.

FSaker said...

@Simon - I don't think it looks like her... this woman's hair looks more pink than purple to me, and she seems to have blue eyes... Diamondback, maybe?

Simon said...

@FSaker -that could explain the costume that's suggested.

Eduardo said...

He I also think that is not a worthy subject at all. I did not know that Vargas was dead.
I want to see the tension between Spiral and Psylocke in her new title.

FSaker said...

Vargas was apparently killed by Mr. Sinister's Marauders shortly before the Messiah CompleX crossover event, as Sinister wanted to eliminate anyone who might have access to information about the future (and about Hope's birth).

But if I'm not mistaken, Gateway was also supposedly killed then, and he turned out to be alive. So maybe Vargas survived; but due to his very low popularity, I guess Marvel considers him as dead for real...

After this issue, everything seems to be somewhat settled. Now what? What happens on issue 35? I can't see anything probable to happen next.

I have no idea really but maybe there will be a funeral for Fantomex, some dialogue between the X-F members and I think maybe Wolverine wants to have a funeral for Daken too. He was a psycho murderer but he was his son too.
