X-Force #6 Spoilers


Spoilers: Once Volga captures Psylocke, Fantomex and Marrow and imprisons Meme in a digital trap, the latter reminisces about the “Security and Defense Symposium”, where the Alexandria incident took place. Back then, Cable and Hope attended an Arms Trade Reform panel, ran by Ms. Qoboza. Qoboza revealed to her audience that the Expo directors asked her to leave since they found out she’s a mutant. Meme reminds that under Volga’s orders, she transmitted the death song into the lady’s earpiece. Before she would blow up, Cable ran to her expecting to bodyslide her. Volga’s goons then shot the super soldier serum in Cable’s arm. Cable cut off his arm, but Hope touched Nate, thus, mimicking the effects of the poison. Cable managed to bodyslide with Hope before Ms. Qoboza blew up. Back to Volga’s HQ, Cable and Dr. Nemesis appear before him. Volga understands that Cable did die, but has been cloned. The real Cable is in stasis, thus, Dr. Nemesis creates a new clone every single day with the same memories. Psylocke, Marrow and Fantomex are freed; X-Force battles Volga’s super soldiers. Psylocke manipulates Marrow to use her bones to impale them, while Fantomex attach teleportation devices to the remaining goons. Nemesis teleports them to outer space where they die.  Volga decides to self-destruct rather than revealing his secrets. Marrow protects X-Force against the explosion, but Cable “dies” once again. Volga’s powers seem unlimited and he manages to flee as energy projection. Back at X-Force’s HQ, a new clone of Cable is created whereas the real Cable and Hope remain in stasis. Psylocke then tells Meme that she better tell Cable who she really is: the real Meme has been brain dead since the plane crash, and Hope’s been riding piggyback on her powers ever since.

X-Men #15 Spoilers

Spoilers: Kymera tells the X-Men that in her future, the Future infiltrates the school, kidnaps Shogo and maims Jubilee permanently. Storm decides to take any measures necessary to prevent that; the others agree. Jubilee visits Teon and Sprite in Beast’s lab. Beast plans to inject them with a “brain dead” sample of Arkea in order to replicate its self-repair ability in said patients. Kymera is worried they’ll change the timeline, but Ororo assures her that her staying in the present already did that. Later, the X-Men guard the school. Psylocke detects the Future posing as a gardener and attacks him. He adapts to her powers and easily overcomes Betsy. The Future enters the school and shoots at Jubilee, retrieving her body.

Psylocke To Play a Role in "AXIS"


CBR: To bring some more clarity to the upcoming 9-issue event series, "AXIS", Rick Remender and Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort are on hand for a special press conference call, ready to tease details for the crossover that spans "Uncanny Avengers," "Magneto," "Loki: Agent of Asgard" and more.

It's Remender's first real go at writing Tony Stark, and the writer noted that crafting dialogue for both Iron Man and Deadpool was very satisfying. Continuing on the Iron Man thread, Remender revealed there were big changes in store for Tony Stark and that events between the Iron Avenger and the Red Skull were percolating in the background. The writer called out Genesis, Deadpool, Psylocke, Rogue, Cyclops and many more as playing a role in the series. "Nightcrawler has a very big role in this," he said.

Written by Rick Remender,AXIS runs nine issues over three months starting in October and crosses over into several Marvel titles including Iron Man, Magneto, Loki: Agent of Asgard and Remender's own Captain America and Uncanny Avengers comics.
