I’m about to ship Xlocke as the new supercouple. Psylocke and Angel ain’t right together anyhow.

FSaker said...

X looks quite handsome (irregular art notwithstanding), indeed.

But we should remember this body isn't really his, it's Fantomex's. And as it always happens in superhero comic books (except with Psylocke herself, ironically), he will probably take his body back sooner or later...

How? His body is destroyed like the Psylocke body. Fantomex needs to stay on th Atral Plane forever. X is more interesting

Anonymous, anything can be undone in comics no matter how contrived.

CMX will they turn Psylocke body back from the ashes you think?

A good way to get her back in her "old" body again is use the Siege Perilous again. I don't know who has it, but it gives the person who enters it a new chance in life.

Erik Stoop, siege perilous destroyed by sociopath Reavers after deceptive Psylocke tricked the team through it.

X & Psylocke as a couple is creepy. Psylocke is what she is british mind + asian body.

Finn, Creepier than Psy and Fantomex? Creepier than Psy and Cluster? Creepier than Psy and Sabretooth who tried to gut her on 3 separate occasions??? really?????

Psy lives to be masochistic. Next, she gonna be going out with Spiral.

FSaker said...

To be fair, Fantomex was a nice lover to her; it was only after he "died" and had his brains revived in three separate bodies that he became truly messed up. Cluster technically was the "best part" of Fantomex (basically the one who was kind and deeply in love with Betsy), only in a female body (and as a telepath, Psylocke was in love with the mind, not the body). And the Sabretooth she fell in love with was from an alternate reality, not the one who almost killed her (technically, he'd be like a twin brother to 616-Creed, same appearance but still a separate being).

So, yeah, X & Psylocke would be a little creepier than all these cases (but not as creepy as dating a HOLOGRAM as she did in Wood's X-Men book). That said, as you pointed out, Betsy is a little masochistic and Xavier was a nice man despite his dark secrets (not sure if X is as nice as Xavier, though), so who knows, it could work out.

FSaker said...

And now that I think about it, pretty much all of her relationships were messed up, right? I guess her only healthy relationship was with Tom Lennox; it's a shame he was killed so soon...

Anonymous said...

If she was smart, she would get with Doug Ramsey now that he is old enough to hit the skins.

Unknown said...

@FSaker Tom Lennox was kinda abusive to her. They argued a lot.

FSaker and Unkown,

What was the name of that cat she went to the Alps with after she was blinded by Slaymaster? The one that she was in a relationship with when Spiral and Mojo kidnapped her. I hate how Marvel just drops plotlines. Would that guy and her other psychic friend have inquired where she was?

Unknown said...

Rahsaan

He was Agent Matthew (later codenamed Agent Gabriel). He was placed in suspended animation by a villain and was freed years later by Excalibur. He also attended Brian and Meggan's wedding and this is the only time Betsy and him were at the same place after Mojo kidnapped her, but they didn't interact.

Finn said...

X is Professor Xavier. Yes that's creepy not crepier, but all of the above wer'e too , including Cable's fuck Clones :s yuk!

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

Unknown,

Thanks. I don’t recall him being at the wedding, but totally take your word for it. Especially, since them not interacting is just the kinds of dropped plotline and missed opportunity Marvel is infamous for.
