So, Shogo's father is known as "Future"... what could be the reason behind it?

Shame that Betsy didn't appear in this preview, but she'll surely have a good participation in the full issue.

In other news, Rick Remender was announced today as the writer behind Axis, a 2014 event featuring Avengers and X-Men (apparently and thankfully both teams are on the same side this time):

Psylocke was the main character in Uncanny X-Force, and Remender is using her as a quite important character in the Planet X arc for Uncanny Avengers. Maybe this means she may have a bigger participation in Axis than she did in AvX?

They better get Psylocke's hair colour right. Last time Clay Mann penciled her in X-Men Legacy (Necrosha) her hair was beautifully purple as it should be.

Clay Mann already penciled betsy in this run pound.

I really like him. Some people compared him to greg land (who i also like) but Clay is one of my favorite artists. I´m not happy because Wood will leave, He´s been doin a great job. I think.

Really? Whenever I see anyone comparing Mann's art to anyone else's, usually people compare him to Coipel (which in my opinion is a much more accurate comparison). In fact, had Coipel been replaced after issue 3 by Mann, the art in this book would have been much more consistent (even though I like Lopez's and Anka's art).

And yes, I'm sad to see Wood leaving this book, too. He had his flaws, but then again, who doesn't? High-regarded writers like Bendis and Aaron have had A LOT of flaws in their books as well. Unfortunately, it seems that Marvel just doesn't care about the X-Women book anymore, even if its first issue was one of the best-selling and most positively reviewed books of the entire Marvel NOW era...
