Sam Humphries on Tumblr

eyesofamaranthine asked: Hey Sam, what are your favorite Psylocke stories?

Humphries: "Off the top of my head, I love the House of M story from Uncanny X-Men #462-465. The Acts of Vengeance story from Uncanny X-Men #256-258 is a big one of course, the art in those issues still kicks ass. And Uncanny X-Force, obviously."

stegosnoreus asked: Psylocke vs Storm, will it ever happen?

Humphries: "Storm and Psylocke are close friends, but they're coming from very different places right now. As a result, when it comes to what the team should do in a given situation, they will often find themselves on opposite ends of the spectrum. And if the stakes get high enough..."

pianofights asked: Psylocke's brother disapproved of the last Uncanny X-Force team, what would Brian think of this new team?

Humphries: "He would disapprove of Betsy, who is upper class British birth, carousing with the scoundrels and outsiders. But there's a part of Brian that yearns to cut loose too..."

This is completely not related to the Tumblr questions, but is anyone else excited for Psylocke being the rewards for the third PVP season on Facebook's Avengers Alliance?

That "Oh, BLOODY..." moment is one of my favorites! Always has been. I really dug the Betsy/Rachel friendship.

I wonder if Rachel would ever join X-Force. We all know Rachel can be homicidal. Re: Selene, the Shi'Ar, etc. The only thing is Rachel gets way emotional and impulsive with her bloodthirstiness. And then people, like Wolverine have to stab her and people like Spiral come along and trick her.

Oh, snap. Just realized Rachel hates Spiral too. Betsy and Rachel would bond even more over that. Spiral kidnapped and fucked around with both of them.

BTW, fuck Brian.

metal,

Really? I didn't know that. A lot of people hate the Statchilde, but I like her. Question about her. I don't read Wolverine & The X-Men or Legacy. Can you or anyone else tell me how Rachel came to be sporting whT looks like the hound marks again? Are those hound marks or just make-up? They sctually look stylized, so I'm thinking they're part of her costume

Nic said...

I don't remember where I read it, but the marks have always been there. Rachel just used her telepathy to mask them from being viewed by everyone until now. But I agree that it does look stylized to match her current costume. I guess we'll see if it lasts when they change her look again. I think she is starting to approach Wasp in number of costumes!
