X-Men '92 #2 Art

So, U-Go Girl is a student in this continuity? That's... quite different from the trashy celebrity she was in X-Statix, but it's great to see her back (and with the Generation X uniform)!

Psylocke teasing Storm seems in line with her behavior in the 1990s animated series (where she wasn't exactly the friendliest person around).

Now, about Jubilee becoming a vampire... was it really necessary? I mean, it was good in the long term in Earth-616 because it allowed her to rejoin the X-Men after she had lost her powers and gave her character some complexity, but I'm not sure the 1990s Jubilee needed that. I hope it's just a temporary transformation in this continuity - or, if it's permanent, that it's not a way to make her a darker character (as X-Men '92 should be all about light, fun action).

As for the art, I really like it!

I like the nostalgic feeling this brings! I am almost wishing Revanche showed up to see what version of that would it be done ahahahha

As long as she has a different origin than the comics, that could be cool. For example, instead of the whole body-swap fiasco, Revanche and Psylocke could have just been former pupils of the same ninjutsu master, Betsy was his favorite student, so Revanche wants to defeat her to prove that she is the best pupil (this kind of plot would fit with the 1990s animated series vibe). After they fight, Revanche could even become friends with Psylocke and become an ally of the X-Men (but NOT a X-Man herself) or become a recurring bitter villain.

The only challenge there, Fsaker is thag she'll look just like how Psylocke used to look. How will the X-Men ignore that unless it's like an actor returning to a show after her character was recast and she now will play a new character with no one acknowledging that she looks exactly like the way Psylocke used to look. LOL.

Rahsaan, remember that this is the animated series' continuity, where Psylocke probably never joined the X-Men before and probably never suffered the body swap (in other words, she probably never looked like Revanche before), so the writers can ignore all the mess involving body swaps, DNA tampering making both women similar and so on.

As for the hair, they can just say that Revanche dyed her hair purple because she's jealous of Betsy... ^_^

Oh. I did actually forget this book was based on TAS continuity. My bad!
