    So, save Scott, the Uncanny X-Men team is comprised of former villains or weapons of villainous intent? Is this the X-Men, or the University of Miami football team?

      No, it’s the “Let’s make Wolverine look better by putting former villains and weapons on his team”. Next their going to make Scott kill a puppy “to save mutantkind”. ;p

    I’ve noticed a distinction between “X-Men” Psylocke and “X-Force” Psylocke. The katanas, pervs. “X-Men” Psylocke is charging her blade with energy while “X-Force” Psylocke katanas are made of energy. So my conclusion is that there are now TWO Psylocke!

    This is the part where Rodrigo loses it. ;p

      I had be thinking long and hard (get your mind outta the gutter) about Psylocke being on both X-Men (Blue) and X-Force (Gold)…

      However… with you saying that the blades a different… spark my thought process to thinking that they might not be the same person at all…

      Psylocke in X-Men (Blue) is clearly Elizabeth “Betsy” Braddock

      However, could the Psylocke in X-Force (Gold) be Revanche aka Kwannon (I know that she was killed off in X-Men Vol 2 #31) however… it is not unlike Marvel to resurrects a character…

      and a key factor is what you said… Betsy uses real katannas in fused with her Psi… Oppose to Kwannon which uses Psi-Energy katannas

      Just a thought…

        Or it could just be a difference with the artists. The person doing the Wolverine side doesn’t impress me much.

          I’m wondering if it’s the same Psylocke, but she’s ‘infiltrated’ one of the sides at the behest of the other… I mean, who else do you call on when you need somebody to play both sides, other than A FREAKING PSYCHIC NINJA? ^_^

    Magneto on a team with two powerful metal allies. Hmm.

    Magik is on the main team and title though. That’s all that matters to me.

        I don’t regularly endorse violence against comic-book women, but in this case I’m willing to chip in on a refrigerator for Magik… Slappy, I’m glad to know I’m not the only person who doesn’t believe in … That’s too corny, I’ll just stop now.

    To borrow a line from “Young Justice” I am really underwhelmed…
