AHHHH Psylocke and Shadow King again!!! A must-see!! Can't wait!!

Anna Vale said...

Ffs, am I the only one a bit tired of the Shadow King by now? Also, wasn't he supposed to be locked at Otherworld, inside an Omega armour or something like that?

That's probably the only reason why Betsy was included on the cover.

Eduardo said...

Oh I like him, he is almost her archenemy and it is interesting to see how he always manages to come back. He makes Betsy faces her fears.

Actually, I guess the reason why Betsy is on the cover is because it's a Claremont book. Let's face it, the man loves Psylocke.

Considering how both Adjectiveless X-Men and X-Force are facing possible cancellation, hopefully Betsy will be able to stick around in Nightcrawler's book (after all, Bendis doesn't seem to like her considering how she barely appeared in his books, and although Remender loves her, I don't feel that Betsy joining the Uncanny/Astonishing/Whatever Avengers after the AXIS event would be a good move for her...).

FSaker said...

Speaking of AXIS, it seems that the Astonishing Avengers (who will probably replace the Uncanny Avengers after the event is done) will "fight the Uncanny X-Men for the fate of New York". Considering how the X-Men will apparently align themselves with Apocalypse, they may be shown as the wrong side in the battle. Again.

I'm not sure what would be worse: Betsy being branded as a villain alongside the X-Men, or Betsy somehow joining the Astonishing Avengers to fight the X-Men (Remender did say she would play a big role in AXIS)... I was already kinda disappointed with her when she joined the Avengers and the X-Men in the attack against Phoenix-5 Cyclops and Emma even though the Avengers were the ones that started provoking and attacking Cyclops, not the other way around...

Phoenix looks good on Rachel here. For once her tranchcoat actually works with something... the Phoenix Effect.
