Well at least that explains the death isn't exactly true death 😂. and explains the new Series as announced.. Though holy hell... Mate.....

Tazirai said...

Well he was, even in his own series the "Shaman" of Earth.

Tazirai said...

Love seeing her and jean work together.

CmX said...

Crazy seeing all these major players in this arc. Story seems to finally be picking up in pace.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

Now that Jean is back, is R’Chel/Starchillde back in editorial limbo?

TheBlackprint 07 said...

Taz, I love seeing them two work together as well. Would be great if they could both shine as powerful telepaths like Grant Morrison did with his run.

FSaker said...

With such huge telepathy, shouldn't Nate be able to realize the X-Men weren't really dead? Then again, judging from the last panel, maybe their survival doesn't make a huge difference to his plans.

As for his line declaring himself as the "Second Coming"... Hope Summers, it's official: you've been forgotten by Marvel. I guess you won't be leaving editorial limbo anytime soon.

Stephen W said...

Hope shows up in the Cable memorial book as a main character ....it is Rachel who was again forgotten as she was not in preview

Stephen W said...

ugh Betts needs to get away from Warren..he goes "evil" consistently

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

@Stephen, I'm still shipping Betts with Doug now that Doug is a grown ass man with a sexy beard to boot. Or perhaps, we can bring Neal Sharra back for her. Neal was also sexy. Just say no to Wings.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

Hell, maybe she can Alex can finally explore the sexual tension they had from the moment she proposed they slay him in the Morlock tunnels and throughout their time down under. Anyone, but Warren and Fantomex/Cluster/Weapon XIII!!

X-Man said...

Hated Neal lol. I remember when she dressed up because it "pleased him" ugh haha. At least Warren gave up some of his soul to save her. Probably the cause of a lot of his later troubles lol. I'd love if Warren became like he was when he was there for Betsy during the whole Kwannon arriving saga. He was edgier then. He seems lost these past years.

Antone Poitier said...

Am I the only one pulling for Betsy to be with Logan. Honestly I do feel they got a lot in common even though Cyc got a big weakness for telepathys aka Jean (who i feel really love each other) but there are others I can see being with Betsy other then Warren maybe Blade LMAO or anyone who is British... kinda miss Thunderbird III (Neal).

CmX said...

Please just no. Another XMan??

Shes had romantic relationships/encounters with the following teammates... Angel, Cyclops, Thunderbird III, AoA Sabretooth, Fantomex, Cluster and Cable. You're wanting to add Alex to the list? PASS

CmX said...

And she also fucked Hercules lmao I'm sure I'm missing something not including the weird flirting with Beast and Nightcrawler under CC

CmX said...

OMG I forgot about her danger room boyfriend during Brian Wood's XWomen run! Omg people thought he was good for Psylocke lmaooo

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

Now @CmX, if memory serves you were cheering when the Beast licked her face after her resurrection. Don’t act brand new. 😂

Antone Poitier said...

LMAO @Rahsaan I do remember that. I'm very strong on my opinion about her and Logan cause there's something about their relationship I'm liking a lot.

CmX said...

Rahsaan, if that's true it was well over a decade ago. I'm allowed to grow and change opinions and besides at that time I was THRILLED at any interactions Psylocke had as she was still newly resurrected.

Nice try though ~_~

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

@Antone, yes. You are the only one. Logan gets enough tail already. Leave Betts unsullied.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

lmao

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

Um.... No.

Tazirai said...

Bring back one of her old loves from pre-X-men era. Tom Lennox or Agent Gabriel. OR let her shack up with whoever the hell she wants lol. I like her single OR having Sex and adventuring with Nightcrawler no strings attached.

Unknown said...

I like her being free and getting it on with whoever she wants. She did have sex with wolverine. It was revealed in that issue after she died and wolvie was remembering her badass days. It's the one issue where shes popping a squat and the art is this really pretty watercolor style. Anyone remember that? I wish they would explore why she doesn't like Alex, she probably read his mind or gleaned some thought and shes like this guy is an ahole lol. I cam imagine some telepaths being really jaded towards some ppl.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

@Unknown, it’s Alex who doesn’t like her. She is mad unbothered where dude is concerned.

Unknown said...

---aka ECHO---

@Rahsaan I also was really happy too see a good-looking Indian guy named Neal on a powerful X-Men team. #representationmatters

I'm curious though, let's just say Neil flirted with Psylocke and then Psylocke told him to message her on Facebook messenger. Neil cautiously does as Psylocke requests, only to be blocked.
What kind of message do you think Psylocke wanted to convey to Neil, who was excited to talk to an attractive and intellectual person?


P.S. check your messengers.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

I didn’t block you. Unless that person who sent me a request that only said “Hey” was you. I thought it was a Russian hacker. Seriously. People are shady as fuck on social. If that was you, you should have announced yourself. LOL.

Also, I replied to your Gchat last week.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

If that was you, I apologixze and will unblock, so we can talk.

I left a message on this site that said "check your Facebook messenger" after I also said I wasn't comfortable using said messenger.
Then, assuming that you got that message, I said "hey there".

Who announces themselves in a casual, online exchange? LOL
I mean I already announce my self at the beginning of my posts.

Unknown said...

---aka ECHO---

There is a lot of talk on this thread about who Psylocke should be with. I feel like we wouldn't be having this conversation if she was a man.

Psylocke is a highly independent and grounded character. So it never made sense why she keeps getting pushed with Archangel, who goes back and forth between free spirit and disconnected.

I feel like Psylocke should be with a badass female who understands her. This is of course based on Asian Psylocke who had edge and not the current version :p

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

I would totally announce myself when writing to someone who doesn’t know what Inlook like and what my real name is. I would be like, “Hi, Rahsaan. This is Unknown Echo, your acquaintance from the Psylocke blog who thinks Psylocke had edge when she was shacking up with the dissociative alter, Cluster while wearing Kwannon’s face.”

That’s just me though. I have had scoundrels online contact me with malicious intentions, so if someone doesn’t immediately make themselves and their intentions unknown, I’m prone to blocking.

🤓 Let’s try again. Let me go unblock you.

Unknown said...

@ Rahsaan, you can't really see tone of voice on here, but I hope my past two or three messages communicated some degree of playfulness.
Since I had messaged on two different platforms prior to facebook, I thought there was a general idea of who I was. Hence no announcement.
That is a good memory you got there :)

Agreed, let's start again.

Tazirai said...

Psylocke has Edge, no matter the body. You don't need to be in someones face to have it.
Also, I talk about who Nightcrawler should be with a lot lol.

Finn said...

No thank you, Alex would be the worst for her. And can we let Betsy aclimate to her new body before going all promiscous again just to fulfill male fantasies about her jumping from one mutant to another? She is so much interesting than that to objectify/oversexualize her yet again.

Finn said...

@Unknown She did Not had sex with Wolverine in Marvel's regular continuity, the issue you say was XMen Unlimited an issue right after she died, Logan was rememberind her with respect and never said anything about having sex with her. The only issue where they have sex is in a Ronnin Special and that was another alternate reality where she was a geisha.but that wasnt our XMEN regular continuity.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

I remember that geisha issue. Problematic. 😂

Unknown said...

Unrelated? But anyone watch the 100? Octavia is very much like Psylocke in many aspects. I think a writer on that team is a betsy braddock fan. Hahaha

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

@Unknown, maybe that actor can play Psylocke when MCU reimagines. Also, after seeing the new Spider-Verse film last week and how well it was done, I'm starting to think that most if not all comic book films (including the X-Men) should be animated to avoid bad special effects, poor casting, etc. This latest Spidey flick was much more enjoyable to me due to having none of those problems as a completely animated film.

Unknown said...

I was thinking more her storyline.Are you familiar with the show? Where can I watch that spiderman movie?

FSaker said...

Actually, she was an oiran in that story, not a geisha. That's very different.

She did become Wolverine's lover in an alternate FUTURE shown in Remender's Uncanny X-Force, but that future will probably never happen. And yeah, in the X-Men Unlimited story, Logan was just retelling to the reader a story Psylocke told him one time when they were drinking together.

---

As for the "who should be with Betsy?", well, a good writer can make any pair of characters work (for instance, Remender made Betsy and Fantomex work, Hopeless made Domino and Colossus work, and so on), so as long as she's well-written, I'm okay with whoever she dates or if she decides to remain single. I did like her interactions with Nightcrawler in Claremont's Reload run, and Kurt's currently looking great with his facial hair, but they're so nice as good friends that it may be risky to turn them into lovers...
