'Astonishing X-Men' Debuts New Lineup & Creative Team Without Psylocke

Writer Matthew Rosenberg and artist Greg Land are the new creative team on Astonishing X-Men, beginning with Issue #13 on July 4. The series will also see a new team lineup of Havok, Beast, Warpath, Colossus, Dazzler and a mystery member.

Astonishing X-Men #13 marks the return of the Reavers, who are bringing with them a secret weapon that only Havok knows about.

After the announcement, Rosenberg posted on Twitter, “For those wondering our team is Havok and Beast as co-leaders. Dazzler brings the firepower. Colossus brings the muscle. Warpath brings the knives. And *maybe* there is another team member we aren’t talking about yet? And no, I won’t spoil it.”

What about Psylocke?

Charles Soule took to Twitter to assure fans: "We have plans for Psylocke".

I'm pretty afraid Betsy gonna Die.

I don't think they'd kill Psylocke (again) Either she leaves the team, something happens or Astonishing X-Men includes many teams of mutants. Cuz that's mentioning only Psylocke. What about the rest ?

If he said he has plans then her death (if happening) will be something temporary

AKO Star said...

Add to that the Hunt for Wolverine, makes it even impossible to Kill Psylocke

As I read Astonishing ONLY because it's the ONE book Psylocke is in. I guess i'm done as I don't see her appearing in any other book yet announced.

Jeez, how many tanks does one team need?

I'm glad they have plans for Psylocke; hopefully they're good. Maybe she'll be in a new title or move to another. Either way, she's not going into limbo.

If Psylocke is the mystery member, we’ll have 4 of the 9 from Fall of The Mutants/Inferno/Outback team reunited!
All we need is the remaining roater, including a rehabilitated Madelyne as icing on the cake!!

This new team lineup is boring.

I did not appreciate the team as well, and that's not because Psylocke is not among them, I just don't think the members are as charismatic as the other formation but that is just my opinion, a good plot might change that.... I like having Crystal back and my favorite team also was the Australian outback formation and this is pretty close to them indeed.

I'll check it out for Dazzler. Nice cover!

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

This roster and the last each have/had 3 Outback members.

Logan, Rogue, Psylocke

Havok, Colossus, Dazzler

Now we just need to combine them and throw in Storm and Longshot for the win!
