    Not a fan of the way she is using her powers atm. I personally did not like the run but putting that aside 2019 X-men did things right for Betsy. She had Psy-knife, Sword + Shield, TK, butterfly effect. Current Betsy is boring in comparison.

    Yeah miss that version of Betsy. I don't want her to have Captain Britain powers. Or that lame costume.

    The problem is she hasn't showed the advanced speed, strength, stamina, durability, etc associated with Captain Britain. I have no idea why but thats how it is. I do agree the costume sucks. Especially the head gear.

    The main version of the costume, which isn't bulky and doesn't have a helmet, it's great.

    Yeah. If you pull off the cape it looks pretty sleek. I still agree with the purple clashing.

    Oh it was a cover but baby this is everything. Love the psychic knife and butterfly reappearance.

    A red cape adds a ton of super-heroic signifiers to an image. For someone who's unsure of her own inherent goodness, I felt it was a powerful subversion. But I agree, it's unnecessary. Betsy's more Catwoman than Batwoman.

    It's interesting that Betsy's Cap always looks best in blue-hued shadows that turn the fire-engine reds to magentas and violets. For me it's the weird choices on the torso, abdomen and legs. The breastplate is okay despite not crossing in an X, and the battleskirt color breaks are repetitive, but why would she need a racing stripe on her pants?

    i love the cape since it goes full circle to her armor and cloak look back in the 80's before she got kwaninfied.

    Agree with everything. Would like for her to loose the cape and have longer hair. A darker shade for the blue and red would indeed improve the overall color scheme greatly.
    A picture would last longer darling...

    The costume is. That's based on the Union Jack, by the way, that's why it doesn't cross like an X.

    A shame that cover shows London on fire in the background though. Brings to mind terrorist attacks. No thanks.

    Considering the solicit for April...

    That sword ain't getting locked away for long. Britain at war with Krakoa? They are SO gonna call on their Champion. Brian and Betsy will be forced to fight again!

    Also based on Union Jack. Crosses like an X. I assumed it would match, and for some reason it doesn’t.

    tbh betsy's powers besides her constructs have been pretty diverse, telekinesis and telepathy used in plenty, obvious increase in physical atributes since nothing has scratched her even slightly so far, flight.
    i do agree that i want more constructs like a bow, a flail, an axe, more shields forming a phalanx, also to feature in hickman's x-men (probably being saved for outworld-arakko)

    and her breast plate does have an x, but its a square center one witout the contrast on the top so it doesnt pop as much, since its not blue but red.

    I love the cape on that cover...it's usually shorter in-story...it reminds me of her Outback armor look.
