Hunt For Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor #3 Spoilers

Spoilers: Stenya leads Kitty, Domino and Jubilee back to the Femme Fatales’ headquarters. Kitty orders Stenya to take Domino to the launch pad and stop the satellite from being launched while she and Jubilee will rescue the other X-Women. After Viper delays the launch because of the torrential rain hitting Madripoor, Soteira’s mysterious employee orders her to proceed with the launch as scheduled. Sapphire Styx interrupts Viper, rambling about Wolverine being alive. As it turns out, “Wolverine” is an illusion only Sapphire can see. Viper calls for Mindblast and Knockout’s help to deal with Sapphire, leaving Magneto by himself while Rogue and Storm are shipped to the launch pod to be imprisoned inside the rocket. Jubilee and Kitty make their way to the prison and stop both Femme Fatales. Jubilee distracts Mindblast, while Kitty phases Knockout to the ground. Meanwhile, at the launch pad, Domino witnesses Rogue and Storm being shipped inside the rocket, but is surprised by Bloodlust, who kills Stenya. Domino and Bloodlust fight each other. Back at the HQ, Kitty phases through Mindblast’s psychic enhancements, preventing Mindblast from controlling minds. As a result, Magneto finally breaks free. At the upper level, Sapphire keeps struggling with Wolverine’s illusion which seemingly hurts her physically. Magneto lashes out at Mindblast for violating his mind, but Kitty warns him it’s more important to stop the rocket from launching. Viper orders her minions to proceed with the launching and there’s only 30 seconds left. Domino defeats Bloodlust and reunites with Kitty and Jubilee, just in time to watch Sapphire struggling with Wolverine’s illusion. Domino realizes it’s Psylocke messing up with Sapphire’s mind from within. Betsy tells Sapphire she won’t ever drain souls again and seemingly destroys Sapphire’s body.

Betsy is one if a kind with her ticks. two kisses making us think she's dead. now I'm assuming she's alive and just toying with Saphire or...shes drained dead but she would inside Saphire is fighting back. is that a possible theory ?

Sapphire got wrecked. Good.

I didn't know Psylocke was able to destroy bodies... and I'm not sure this is a good idea.

But to be fair, at least she's getting the opportunity to do something, unlike Storm and Rogue (unless the two of them are the ones who save the day in issue #4). As two of the main X-Women, they deserved better than being just Viper's hostages.

I don't know if her body got destroyed or just a "Psychic" destruction.
