ULTIMATE INTIMACY IN THIS! Love love LOVE Psylocke and Rachel's dynamic-duo amongst all this.

Me too! And I was afraid of how this book would look like without Coipel's art, but Lopez's is great in it as well!

And is it me, or Rogue's hair and eyes became purple (except for Rogue's usual white hair streak) when she absorbed Psylocke's powers? Nice touch!

I didn't have any doubts Lopez would deliver. He's an amazing artist.

Would have been neat, too, if the hair color was "genetic" black instead of the dyed-purple. Could just be the lighting; making it simply reader's choice! haha

It's one of those little things I get a kick out of and enjoy seeing from time to time.

I prefer that Rogue obtained purple/violet hair rather than 'genetic asian black color'. Because if it's purple for Rogue that just further cements that Psylocke didn't just have a straight up body switch & that Spiral's 'DNA mixture' of the two women created the Psylocke we all know, purple hair/eyes! Afterall, Psylocke nor Kwannon had violet eyes either, until the body switch.
Well, yes we've seen Psylocke have blue eyes after the transformation but it's been stated on panel that her eyes are purple not blue. As an unnatural eye color and hair color I'm going to assume it was Spiral's doings.

Yeah, I've always just assumed that Spiral and Mojo permanently altered her hair and eyes. Makes more sense to me than her dyeing it all the time. That doesn't fit with who she's become over the years, IMO

Vigmed said...

I could have sworn that it was mentioned she kept her hair dyed. Which I remember reading and thinking it funny at the time because, well, who does that for years?

In any case, I would love it if purpse is her natural hair color.

With Spiral on the team, now, it would be fantastic to get some definitive answers!

The cybernetic eyes were purple. So when the Sisterhood resurrected that body and regrew its soft tissue, the eyes should've been blue. Since that body died with dyed hair, and the hair still remained when it was reanimated, the hair was still purple. Doctors McCoy and Nemesis confirmed that in the mini-series' autopsy scene; on-panel.

However, I don't recall what the other body had after Spiral's tampering. Since she did mix DNA, that would mean it would have genes for blue eyes and blonde hair along with brown eyes and black hair. Unless Spiral permenently altered phenotypic expression to purple.

I think her current body is the body that was 'recreated' by Jamie. He could've just made her hair/eyes naturally purple.

gorgomon,

Good point! I forgot about Jamie's manipulations!
