So Psylocke is the one who "dies" in the first edition. I just hope she didn´t be the changed forever x-men (not again). At least she´s in the cover of the last one. She´s not in weapon x (sabretooth, omega red, domino, Lady Deathstrike and one that´s not obvious...

They better not kill Psylocke again!

Tazirai said...

Kwannon or Spiral? I'm takin bets.

Anonymous said...

Spiral is dead??? It says ghost.

Anonymous said...

Is that Madelyne Pryor/Red Queen who is about to get the focused totality right in the forehead?

Unknown said...

It's Sapphire Styx, a minor villain from the 80s

Finn said...

Please Marvel Stop "killing" or "changing" Psylocke !! And "leave her alooneeee.. Shex's a human!!" ..erm Mutant!!

Unknown,

It's your friend, Anonymous. :-)

Mindblast? I've never even heard of her. She must be one of those obscure villains of the week. Do you recall who she fought last time you saw her? Was she an X-Man foe?

FSaker said...

Well, at least we know it's not a permanent death (in fact, considering she'll be back by the end of this miniseries, I wouldn't even count it as a death at all).

I just hope they don't do something stupid like having Betsy's body die (AGAIN) and her mind taking possession of Styx's body from now on. One body swap was enough for her, thank you very much.

Anonymous said...

FSaker, I seriously doubt she will be switching bodies. I'm sure she will die and somehow re-enter her Asian body.

Marvel will never correct her. They are constantly reminding us "British woman trapped in a Japanese ninja's body!" they love having that be her "thing" so they will never change it.

This is just a "shocking" cliffhanger for us to come back for the rest of the mini. I'm sure Psylocke won't reappear until issue #4 to keep us in suspense and she will probably be the deux ex machina that somehow saves the day.

And as someone mentioned above, this won't be considered a real death as it will be self contained in this mini. It's not like she will be absent for years.

Anonymous,

I hate “British woman trapped in a Japanese ninja's body!" Especially since the body rarely looks Japanese... Unless the body is meant to be one of the Ainu.

Also you’re right about the dues ex machina. LMAO! She’ll probably develop a new power set by the end too.

We need G. Willow to take the helm of this sinking ship stat.

CmX said...

My comment was the previous one above haha Didn't know my log in at work.. anyway, regarding the above comment..

My whole thing is.. if Marvel finds the body swap SO confusing and not worth rehashing... why do they CONSTANTLY remind the reader? Who cares who's body she is.. why mention it? Her inhabiting someone else's body makes zero difference. I don't know why Marvel has to always remind the reader.. I wish they would just stop referencing it and we can just pretend she is in her birth body.

Unknown said...

I disagree. G Willow's arc on X-Men was boring as f. She was even worse than Guggenheim. Get her away from the X-Men.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

Then how about Rick Rememder? I agree with you. I pretty much stopped reading that run of Adjectiveless after the sisterhood arc. G’s writing looked boring and the art sucked at the time. The best arc that book had was Archea with art by Coipel. I would love Rememder to write an X book again. Or Alan Davis.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

CmX, you bring up something interesting. Have you watched Altered Carbon. A friend of mine who read the books hated the show, because it glossed over the main character’s constant, ongoing issue with being an Asian man transplanted into a white man’s body. My friend said that throughout the book the character’s socially constructed race being an Asian man his whole life now thrust into a body of a white man and being viewed and treated as such was a constant struggle for him. My friend was annoyed that the Netflix series didn’t explore that. Hence, I can see what Anonymous, I think was referencing with the G. Willow thing as as G. Willow talked about that with Elizabeth. Or the reverse of that I should say.

Anonymous, is that what you were referring to?

Rahsaan Chisolm,

Emojis messed up. Meant to say you are 100 percent right. You knew what I was saying about Willow being good for the team.
