"Cassandra is an omega level telepath."

Gawd damnit. And coming from Psylocke, as well? I guess our girl is probably like bare minimum, barely squeezing by, low tier, "Omega Level."

Will have to read this, but the preview is a little disheartening. Makes it sound like Psylocke is useless, powerless, against Cassandra Nova.

In X-Men The End series, Psylocke managed to stab Cassandra, remember? And it proved to be quite useful!
Maybe this is to bring more drama to the issue heh

Totally agree with vigmed. I'm tiring of Humphries' version of Betsy.

Louis said...

Cassandra is as powerful or even moreso than Xavier. That's a dumb complaint tbh. Humphries Psylocke is amazing >>>>>>>>>

FSaker said...

Even among omega class telepaths, Cassandra was always shown as a huge threat, so I don't think Humphries was showing Psylocke as useless, just wary of a huge threat (come on, Professor X and Jean Grey had the same kind of reaction against Cassandra).

Anyway, not related to this post, but someone posted on YouTube a video of Psylocke in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. She has her TK sword and a TK shield. And she looks really cute!!

Check it out:

I agree, FSaker; Cassandra Nova is almost an anti-telepath in the way she f***s up other psychics. I don't think it has anything to do with Psylocke and how powerful she may or may not be.

And for the record, I like how Psylocke is written in this series.

Why is Cluster back to the team?
Has Bets shared her relationship with Fantomexes with Storm?

FSaker said...

Well, isn't Cluster the body with Fantomex's brain that had his best traits (kindness, loyalty, etc.)? Maybe she wants to redeem herself for the bad things she helped Fantomex do to Betsy.

As for Betsy sharing her bizarre love triangle (or bizarre love square, I don't know) with Storm, who knows? Maybe she wants to forget it ever happened. Maybe not; if that's the case, Storm would be the ideal person to talk to. It's not like Ororo can judge her, after all her bad love choices (Black Panther, Wolverine, Slipstream, even a short-lived affair with Cable) and suspicious relationships (like that scene in Xtreme X-Men with her on the hot tub with Callisto and Yukio).

I think that Cluster on the Cover is just a matter of advertising, as the cover was out before the arc with the Fantomexes was done (i think?). I mean, Cluster's been in other covers before but not around.
