Jim Zub Teases Surprise for 'Mystery in Madripoor' #4

Jim Zub has confirmed via Twitter that a new Spoiler Variant Cover for Hunt For Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor #4 was solicited. The final order cut-off for retailers is July 30. Mystery in Madripoor #4 will be released August 22.

Q: Do you think you can keep the twist happening in Madripoor #4 secret until release date or is it likely to be spoiled in future solicitations/conventions/preview art/interviews?

Jim Zub: I know it’ll be spoiled once copies arrive with retailers, but before then I’m hoping it’ll stay a secret. Fingers crossed.

Kwannon...

Hopefully not Kwanon and Betsy getting her body back. I prefer Betsy in her new body

AKO Star said...

Then again it is possible that Kwanon returns but Betsy keeps the body or something just like the sisterhood did to Psylocke. Either way Betsu bettwr do something in the next upcoming 3 issues. I mean she was confirmed in the concluding series right ? and confirmed she's having role in other series too I think

AKO Star, despite what you think it’s not about what you prefer.

AKO Star said...

I know. I'm just sayin'

CmX said...

Cant wait!

Let's keep Kwannon dead, shall we? Betsy's background became a mess ever since she was added to it.

Considering the rumor about Psylocke regaining her original body (or at least a new body based on her original body), well, I like her in both forms, so as long as she's alive, it's fine. I do wonder, however, how this body swap would be explained; as far as I know, neither Viper nor any of her new allies have the means to do it.

And, if it happens, I hope she'll still retain her psychic dagger and ninja skills; they are basically what sets her apart from any other telepath (and in the current days, where we have Rachel, X, Emma Frost, the Cuckoos, Quentin Quire, Monet and TWO versions of Jean Grey running around, she needs something to make her stand up or she may be seen as redundant by the writers...).

She will rise again.

Give Psylocke HER body back. It's HERS. If people want a Psychic Asian Chick, we can get Kwannon, Who is actual Japanese Representation, and not Yellowface.

AKO Star said...

Agreed. Either way it'll be cool. Then again it can be a surprise not related to Psylocke alone. The cover release before makes us sure she'll be back for payback and that's enough for me

Unknown said...

What if it is the same body, but a whole new mind or persona?

FSaker said...

Then it wouldn't be Psylocke, would it?

Nah, she'll be back. If it's in her original body, great! If it's in her current body, great! Just don't let it be in Sapphire Styx's body, please.

CmX said...

FSaker, why would she not still have her psyblade? I don't understand this worry fans have.

Did Kwannon forget her ninja skills when she inhabited Psylocke's body? No. Did Psylocke forget how to fight like a ninja/manifest psychic knife when Sisterhood put her back in her body? No.

Would Marvel seriously do something like that? No. Logic goes a loooong way.

Marvel likes Psylocke being a ninja, it's her thing. We are just removing the weirdness of her living in someone else's body. It will be fine, everyone. She will still be cool, strong, a fighter, have all her memories.

FSaker,

You have stated that Sapphire Styx fear a few times. LOL. I can’t blame you though as Marvel has done crazier and just as unnecessary things with its characters. Most of all Elizabeth. I agree with CmX though. I don’t think they’d put her in an a third person’s body.
Also, she will always have her focused totality. Now if we are lucky, they might drop all that other stupid weaponry.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

Although, technically, this is Elizabeth’s body. Isn’t Kwannon’s body sealed in the family crypt and decaying after Vargas killed it. Actually, didn’t Vargas steal it after that? Where is that body? The current one is a genetic copy of Kwannon made by Jamie, righy? Such nonsensical writing.

Unknown said...

Jamie didn't make a new body when he resurrected Betsy. Jamie was quite clear in his explanation that he brough her back and reknit her old body. By all means, Betsy is still living in Kwannon's actual body.

As for Vargas, he had a statue of Psylocke, not the real thing.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

Unknown,

I stand corrected. Thank you.

Tazirai said...

Jamie did create a new body for Psylocke, and it's still on Otherworld. It's, in essence, her former white body still uninhabited.
Agreed about her weaponry. I hate her being a Pink Lantern. Drives me nuts. Keep the Psyblade if you must, but also allow her to use her mind from a distance like Spurrier did. Psylocke is not the dumb action Junkie people used to write her as.
That's why so many bad guys used to punk her even after the Ninja Downgrade.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

Tazirai,

Ah, yes. I figured that body probably expired and decomposed a while ago after she chose not to sell out Fantomex despite wanting that body.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

Also, didn’t the building that body was being kept in get demolished in that storyline? Or am I recollecting wrong? That genetic copy is probably very dead now unfortunately.

Kwannon is coming back. If Jean who nobody likes came back after 13, then it's time for Kwannon who been dead more than 20.

Well Saphire finds Betsy dead by her drain. Either Betsy is taking and using Wolverine image to trick everyone or Logan is gonna find a way to bring her back.....

Jeferson Santos said...

Please, do not mess with Betsy... No more! I am tired of this. Now that the character is growing so solid. She is conquering her space as a badass psychic...
