Beautiful!!! Wow. Ok so maybe I will get this series.. I also love that they feature the mention of "his husband". Gay relationship. Black gay man in a gay relationship. Often misunderstood & "niched away" in a lot of publications. Glad. Thank you Marvel. Awesome. I can't wait to read these two side by side!!

I'm so glad that her hair is rightfully purple and by his husband he means Northstar

Hmm the mission seems interesting. Hope they don't have her killed.

Me too, Eduardo. But if she dies, oh well, at least she is just an alternate counterpart of Earth-616 Psylocke (the Psylocke that really matters).

Psylocke isn't a prominent player in Secret Wars, but it's great to see that my fears of her being completely ignored during this event had no reason to exist: so far, we got a 1990s Psylocke joining Cable's X-Force, an old Betsy who will face the DoFP Sentinels, another Betsy part of the royal family in High Avalon, a Lady Mandarin who managed to give Shang-Chi some work in a martial arts tournament (hopefully she'll also fight Red Sai by the end of the miniseries, so that we can finally have a Psylocke vs. Elektra match), a Psylocke in her original body and armor fighting demons, and a little Betsy who... actually didn't do anything, but has the cutest mischievous smile of the entire event!

Given the attention to the new X-Men film it is pretty nice to see the projection it brought to her. Let's see if this ever gives any clue to the new Uncanny team of almost only villains or ex-villains that will come in December.
