    Exactly. Now I’m more interested in her than I was in Fallen Angels. I think Wells will take her into a better direction. She definitely needs a costume change.

    She wasnt called Kwannon here though. That was just the writer breaking the fourth wall with the narration

    yeah well psylocke was given to Betsy by Mojo and look how that stuck.

    I'd rather she keep the name Kwannon. Or else the writer of Fallen Angels just created a new Asian for nothing.

    I didn't like that name retcon.

    Fallen Angels fleshed out Psylocke's backstory, gave more depth and nuance to her history that wasn't about Matsu'o

    It gave her a child and took away the name Kwannon. Let's be real.

    she looks SO GOOD . I liked the idea of dark dark purple but black is fine.
    this was a fantastic issue for her and I feel like that's gonna continue. fallen angels was a good introduction but hellions already feels a lot more sustainable. I love her role on the team and that we got hear her through the data pages, Wells got her voice excellently.
    that look she gave Havok....yes. put him in his place.

    Kwannon isn't something the average Japanese person would name their kid

    Well it' seems like Kwannon's intuitive extirpate character will be tested as a leader of this group. Oh, well others are even more dangerous

    Well they should have established her real name in every issue of Fallen Angels. Instead of leaving it a lame mystery.

    And now theyre calling her Kwannon in a new series she's debuting in.

    Like NO give us her name or don't change it at all.

    I think what Hill wanted to get across was that her real name doesn't matter to her anymore.
    she's psylocke now, a name she's claiming for herself at last . an emancipation type deal

    That's a codename. And the writer on Twitter said she was going to be given a name.

    yes it is. lol. she's forging a new identity and its all she really has to work with
    oops just saw your edit. that's interesting, now im kinda with you. I wonder if Wells is gonna bother with that thread at all ... Hill said they talked, maybe its a down-the-line thing?

    Okay, cute, but heavy. We need Psylocke SIMPLIFIED, immediately. Her character should not be this hard to explain and understand.

    Psychic ninja, real name, black hair, new costume, edgy around other X-Men. Fix the italics, DoX.

    I hope "Kwannon's" real name ends being something like Ayasa Akashi or Juri Kasane

    They're not giving her a name + taking away Kwannon so that everyone's forced to call her Psylocke.

    Well, maybe Zeb/Hellions won't really be like that, but it was definetely the case for BYH/Fallen Angels imo.
