X-Men #3 Spoilers

Spoilers: Storm and co. head to Budapest, pinpointing Arkea's location. Meanwhile at the school, the bomb doesn't go off. Kitty orders Pixie to teleport it to outer space. Arkea possesses Danger Room drones and battles the students. Kitty says they'll need to get to the server room to prevent the virus from escaping into the outside world, but the Danger Room keeps creating more Bots. Back to Budapest, the X-Men tracks Arkea's signal to a hospital institute, the same place where Jubilee found her baby. Turns out it's a hospital which provides medical cybernetic implants to humans. Jubilee's baby was one of the patients and that's how Arkea was able to possess him. The X-Men enter the institute, which is full of patients controlled by Arkea. The X-Men battle them until they reach Arkea. Back at the school, Kitty phases through the server, ending the Danger Room program. In Budapest, Psylocke aims her psi-blade at Arkea's head. Arkea knows the weapon may harm her for good. Rachel is against it as she fears Karima may still be saved. Storm says there's no other option. After Kittys disrupts the virus, Karima  regains consciousness and decides to take Psylocke's blade and stabs herself. The X-Men take Karima back home. Storm is proud about how they dealt with Arkea together, but Rogue reminds her about Rachel's reluctance. Storm says it's safer to assume Arkea it's not gone and to stick together until she returns.

This version of Psylocke seems to show her after all the Pantomexes stuff was solved. She looks much more confident here. Hope this also spreads on Uncanny X-Force now that the Revenants arc is coming.
I do not wish to see Fantomexes any soon in her life hehe

Nice, so now we know how Arkea managed to possess Jubilee's baby. And yeah, I'm sure Arkea will come back sooner than later.

By the way, Psylocke also appeared in What If: AvX #4. Although most people here probably won't want to see its art, since Hope (who became Dark Phoenix) kills Betsy in this book...
