    Betsy should be more refined,Precise and controlled. They don't have to make her soft to me she should feel like the consummate professional. I like the edge Psylocke shows inside of the FA.I guess I have to stop talking or else I will go into spoiler terrority.Oh well to be continued later

    Whoops, guess not. Kwannon is dead and she is reborn as Psylocke. Amazing issue. This did more for her than anything in the past 30 years

    I agree, it must be the best thin xmen editorial has done in decades, in terms of elegantly solving a problematic issue

    I still don't get why she chose the name Psylocke. But it was a good issue. Definitely elevated Kwannon as the new Psylocke.

    The name thing makes sense in the story since ‘Kwannon’ is just as much a name tied to lost identity.

    Still, I can’t imagine someone going through all that body trauma and arriving at the thought of “lemme wear this lady’s old bathing suit tho”.

    I think it's a uniform, pretty much the same thing Elektra wears.

    Yeah, it was basically a very 90's take (more skin/less practical) on Elektra's old uniform.

    I liked issue 1, had a few issues with the art in some spots but I'm thinking maybe it's meant to be a bit messy in spots considering Kwannon's mind atm. It felt a bit more like Remenders X-Force to me compared to the volume that came afterwards.

    Wearing the bathing suit is just Marvel being lazy I feel. Hill can say it's tied into her taking on Betsy's old codename since Kwannon apparently has no name or since of identity apparently even before the body swap, but it's a meh point.

    Wouldn't be surprised if putting her in the uniform was mandated by higher ups in editorial. That way people who aren't aware of the reversion will pick up the book thinking that it's Betsy, not Kwannon. Most legacy characters at least get new takes on classic uniforms, homages, if not their own.

    It's literally the same Hand costume as Elektra. Took me years to realize that. I don't mind her keeping it for now, it suits her.

    not initially. Close but Elektra's 80s suit was different than what Betsy was given





    She got a redesign in the 90s, that made it more like Psylocke

    I figured it was something the Hand put their female warriors in, besides Millar admitting he liked the visual & loves femme fatale archetypes. Even Matsuo mentions in the original arch that they where attempting to succeed with Betsy/Psylocke where they failed with Elektra. I figure they went with the black/blue color scheme to avoid direct ties to Elektra's look plus around that time some issues showed the Hand in black uniforms over the standard red.

    I want both Kwannon & Betsy to independently succeed even though I know it'll take more for Kwannon.

    I think they absolutely can succeed now. Frankly Psy/Kwannon had a stronger start in DOX than Betsy for me, and I adore Betsy and never gave Kwannon a second thought before. Anyway, yes, I do think the minor differences aside Psylocke and Elektra’s uniforms was standard issue for female Hand.

    With that in mind I'd like it if "Kwannon" did eventually get her a redesign down the line. This is all about her reinventing herself to be her own woman, after all.

    Also: Fallen Angels is amazing. Long live Psylocke.

    It's my biggest complaint. I will never not trash that outfit.
