Psylocke • 2017

Retrospective 2017 Here's a brief recap of everything that happened to Psylocke in 2017 – Unfortunately, Betsy had very little appearances in the past year; the lowest count since we’ve started this recap in 2009. To make things worse, half her appearances were one-panel cameos. While her former teammates rejoice bi-monthly shipping in X-Men Gold and X-Men Blue, Psylocke was taken off the board after IvX and only joined a regular title in July’s Astonishing X-Men, a very self-contained book which hasn’t been acknowledged in other X-books so far. Refresh your memories and talk about your favorite stories, writers, artists, quotes, etc. Happy New Year!

In one side Betsy was not very present last year, but at least she is part of the main (and best) X-title nowadays, Astonishing X-men.
