    I would just absolutely love it if they introduced a third artifact to join the Amulet of Right and Sword of Might... The Crown of Sight.

    Give Betsy a crown, a new codename of Monarch, and have the Crown of Sight elevate her telepathic powers to an even higher degree.

    Let Brian have the Amulet and give Jamie the Sword. And let the Braddock reign begin!

    This is my entire point. Captain Betsy will be just a “girl phase” for the CB brand unless this turn is used to define and refine the Betsy Braddock character outside of the Psylocke identity.

    UGH I knowwwww. And I've been having all my sword n board characters in video games as Betsy since the first Elder Scrolls games. And now every Dark Souls game I create my character as Betsy. It can work! But ninjas (hot ninja girl at that) will never not be coke for rabid gamers.

    I hope you're doing well too. And all u kings n queens too.

    I'd be down for something like this.

    I've been advocating for Marvel to do a take on the magical girl genre for a long time now, so sign me up!

    I personally would've been fine with it. But I can't blame them for wanting to have a Psylocke that matches what people expect from the name.

    They need to kill the magical fantasy angle anyway. Excalibur is a dud

    She should hook up with the Wasp, to help with Van Dyne’s new clothing line.

    I wonder if they’ll ever reveal that Brian may be a mutant? I mean, his twin, and older brother are.

    Excalibur isnt a dud. Its just the writer.

    How do you have that many good characters and be such a basic title.

    Therefore its a dud. Its her creative vision and its not working. More than half of the characters make no sense for this book and dont fit its concept (Jubilee, Rogue, Gambit, Rictor) and in 8-9 issues, she hasnt made that make sense. It probably would have been better retooled as an Apocalypse solo with Betsy as a heavy recurring character. She and the rest would be better served elsewhere IMO

    I actually kinda like Excalibur, but yeah, that's a weird argument to make.

    I agree with those who say the book is overly plot-driven and lacking in weight. I also don't think the art team is doing a great job of giving the book a sense of place. But it's not a trainwreck. It's not Chuck Austen.
