I don't even care that she's placed with the X-characters that represent the worst that the 1990s had to offer (...well, ALMOST the worst: Shatterstar, Boom-Boom and Feral are absent from this cover), it's nevertheless nice to know that she'll appear somewhere else.

I know, this is not OUR Psylocke, but unfortunately Earth-616 Psylocke is dead, so until she is brought back to life, we'll have to deal with her counterparts like this '90s X-Force Psylocke, or "Lil' Psylocke" from Giant-Size Little Marvel AVX (for those who haven't seen her, here's the link to the preview:

She'll also appear in Inferno, and possibly a book based on Bar Sinister. Those two she'll be in her white body.

FSaker said...

OK, so there will also be a Psylocke appearing in Secret Wars Journal? Awesome! I was so worried that she would be completely forgotten in this event, but fortunately we're seeing that some tie-ins will bring her counterparts, after all.

The Days of Future Past reality is quite harsh, so I hope she doesn't die. Although if she does, okay, at least it's not the main Psylocke (that is, the Earth-616 one).

Plus, I wonder in which body she is in the DOFP reality? Since that story was made long before the body swap (and before she joined the X-Men), maybe she'll be in her original, caucasian body. Personally, I like both her pre-body swap and post-body swap looks, so whatever the writer chooses is fine to me.

Tazirai said...

Hey! I write a couple alternate universe Psylocke's, so they're just as "real" as our "real" Betsy, lol.

Besides there are soo many versions of DoFP, it's sickening actually.It was inevitable that she'd appear in one in SOME capacity.

FSaker said...

Really? That's great! Is there any website where we can read the stories you write with these alternate Psylockes?

@FSaker The DOFP Psylocke has already appeared in the comics. She's the Red Queen of the Hellfire Club (and in the Asian body) but they said those realities forming Battleworld are not the actual realities (except 616 nad 1610) but rather realities "inspired" by them, so who knows.

I'm Tazirai on
@Fsaker My stories are of British Caucasian Psylocke of Earth 42356. 42356 is her birthdate. My Betsy is 43 years old and just returning to the adventuring life. My other Betsy is a black Psylocke from Earth 147. 147 is the number I hit the lottery once with and keeps popping up in my life. Her adventures are she never joined the Xmen, but worked with them a few times.
But be aware my Psylockes are not the close combat ninja action girls Types. They solve problems more with strategy and planning.

FSaker said...

Great! I will definitely search them and read them.

By the way, there may be one more Psylocke appearance in Secret Wars... well, kind of. The solicitation for X-Tinction Agenda #3 mentions the rise of "WarLocke". Sure, it may be another character, but this name makes it seem like Psylocke and Warlock will be fused together (kinda like Douglock was supposed to be Cypher and Warlock merged, although in that case it was only Warlock thinking he was Doug).
