X-Position: Cullen Bunn Promises Major Characters Returns in X-Men Blue

CBR: This week in X-POSITION, “Uncanny X-Men” and “Deadpool and the Mercs for Money” writer Cullen Bunn joins us and answers all of your questions about everything from the upcoming “X-Men Blue” series and the next issues of “Uncanny X-Men.”

Your “UXM” run has been building toward the inevitable confrontation between Psylocke and Magneto. Will the results of that showdown explain why Magneto seems to be back in the X-Men’s sphere of influence [in “X-Men Blue”] while Betsy appears to be missing?

Bunn: There is a big showdown coming up, that’s for sure. The results of that fight will at least help to set up Magneto’s role in “X-Men Blue. As for Psylocke, if she’s throwing down with Magneto, that could very well explain why you haven’t seen much of her in previews of future storylines.

Most Psylocke fans view you as being in the top three Betsy writers, alongside [Chris] Claremont and [Rick] Remender. Did you do everything he wanted to do with her, or would he like another shot at her sometime? ResurrXion Phase 2, perhaps?

Bunn: No, I didn’t get to do everything I wanted with the character. I had a big Otherworld story in mind and I had dreams of seeing Psylocke take on the mantle of Captain Britain. Who knows? Maybe one day! No matter how many issues I wrote, I would have always wanted to do more. I love the character, and would happily return to her world sometime.

X-Men '92 #10 Spoilers

Spoilers: In America 2099, Doom 2099 gives the Darkhold to Scott and Jean and send them back to the present. Meanwhile in the present, Apocalypse tries to convince mutants of the impending attack of Xodus the Forgotten. Cable doesn’t buy his words and sends X-Force after Apocalypse. Xavier believes Apocalypse and plead mutants to protect him. Psylocke readily stops Archangel from hurting En Sabah Nur. The X-Men and X-Factor team up to defeat X-Force. With Cable down, Apocalypse explains his plan to activate the x-gene in all humans, turning them into mutants as a way to defeat Xodus. Jean and Scott arrive and share a moment with their son Cable. Dead Girl suggests using the Darkhold to turn every human into mutant the same way they turned every vampire into humans. Professor Xavier sent out a telepathic message to the whole world, inviting humanity to join the mutants to save the world from Xodus. The answer is yes, so Dead Girl casts a spell, with Charles's mental support, to turn homo sapiens into homo superior. It works but at a cost. Professor X is dead. Everyone flies into battle as Xodus arrives to Earth. The book ends as X-Men ’92 is now called Earth X.
