Uncanny X-Force #7 Spoilers

Spoilers: Paris, 6 months ago – Fantomex and Psylocke are living together happily in love. He convinces Betsy to use her telepathy to cover his and Cluster’s tracks during their stealing sprees since the misdirection powers went to Weapon XIII. Psylocke is reluctant, but ultimately agrees once Fantomex tells her the money is for Mother who’s sick and in need of treatment. She’s also been avoiding Cluster, who’s living with them, but Fantomex makes her promise to give Cluster a chance. As time went by, Psylocke grows disappointed in Fantomex while getting to know Cluster better. Betsy is tired of the lives they’ve been living and upset that Fantomex only cares about stealing. Psylocke and Cluster have a heart to heart and Betsy realizes that everything she loved in Fantomex was Cluster all along. Betsy and Cluster kiss.

Madripoor, now – Psylocke and Cluster head to a club looking for Yau, a gangster at the service of Weapon XIII. They find him, but Yau’s ninjas attack the girls. Weapon XIII corners them and tells Betsy to surrender, otherwise he will shoot Cluster in the head. She complies. Weapon XIII ties Psylocke up and says all he ever wanted was a chance to prove how much he loves her.

Wait... Betsy kissed another woman? That's something I'd expect Storm, Rachel or Kitty to do, not her.

Not a bad thing, though. And understandable, since the essence of the person she loved is inside Cluster's body. She isn't the only one who got body-swapped now...

I haven't read this issue yet, but these spoilers make it look like the book is keeping its increase in quality seen since issue #5 or #6. That's great.

This series is getting much better, if you ask me (which you didn't).

I agree, Brian :) I knew it would eventually pick up, it just opened very slowly.

@Brian - Although I didn't ask you, I'm glad you answered. Thanks! :)

It's good to know UXF is getting much better. From Humphries's interviews prior to the release of this book, I did think he had great ideas for it, but somehow he wasn't implementing them right. Now it seems he found the right tone for the book, and with Alphona's art (Runaways is still one of my favorite series ever) it just can't go wrong!
