It's sad that there is still no sign of Psylocke's whereabouts, but on the good side, Jean's new uniform is much, MUCH better than that horrible outfit she is wearing until the end of IvX.

It's also nice to see Gambit returning, as the post-IvX scenario until then only gave room to the O5 and the 1970s squad (with Old Man Logan replacing Real Logan and Rogue being M.I.A.). Since Psylocke originally joined the X-Men shortly after Rachel left the team, maybe the same thing will happen here sooner or later (while Rachel can become a permanent supporting character in Jean's solo book).

With the excessive contingent of characters that the franchise X currently has, it is more natural for certain characters, even the important ones, to be left out at the present stage. Unfortunately, this time no great characters like Psylocke and Magik were included. Gambit remains out of any fixed team. And when will they invest in full-potential characters like Banshee and Sage? But, patience. Patience is a virtue.

On the other hand, there are characters, hitherto neglected, who will finally have a chance to shine. The most notable are Kitty Pryde and Jubilee. Kitty is finally a leader who always demonstrate (and deserve) to be but couldn't because of Cyclops, Emma, Logan, Ororo... And Jubilee in the post of director is a evolution possible for her, which with your eternal young soul, can do good things for the new generations of mutantkind.
