    I did it with my apple pen on procreate on an ipad pro and a bit of patience, if you need an app that does some recolor you could try Picsart, the issue here was that the phoenix effect and the costume were both blue, so you could not simply swap red with blue, and the work had to be done separately and manually because the phoenix had to look like actual fire and not just a yellow recolor.

    Agreed. Their interactions have been greatly missed (IMHO):

    Truth to tell...looking at those pages with Cable...I never liked seeing Rachel in exact/very similar replicas of the Phoenix costumes. Yes I know she's intrinsically tied to it through Jean but...I always felt that Rachel should always be a separate individual entity unto herself, power-wise and visually. I love that she claimed the power for her own but stayed true to who she was...not Jean/Phoenix 2.0

    I liked that Rachel had a similar yet different look to that DP outfit/design in Cable, vs the exact same design in Excalibur which I agree didn't click. I get that before they were trying to ignite fear in people because of DP, but inevitably it wasted time with Rachel airways having to explain she's not her mother, which felt regressive and boring to hear every book.

    I also agree if love to see love of Cable and Rachel now that she's reusing the Askani moniker. It would be great to see her use Askani techniques she developed, but be taught by Cable lol.

    Also, it sounds like from Sins of Sinister that the Otherworld is a safe haven and not taken over. I wonder if Rachel has anything to do with that?

    Writers have (understandably) saddled Rachel Summers with mommy issues since her origin right up till Excalibur #71, (1993) when she and Jean had their "Mother/Daugther" talk. And, now that the out-of-angst angle is played-out they saddled her with Betsy as if they were eyeing each other for decades.

    That would be interesting. But, why would Rachel suddenly develop selective amnesia concerning the Psi-Technique she co-developed?

    Wait. I'm confused... Sins of Sinister is being played out in the Otherworld dimension?

    There was a mention in the Nightcrawlers preview about magic users taking shelter in Otherworld.

    Well let's be honest, writers continued to make Rachel have mommy issues when they didn't know what to do with her. Between enslavement or mommy issues, Rachel was not written well after coming back after her stint in Cable. I think it wasn't till Leah Williams did she start moving past everything.

    And le sigh, no one is saddling her to Betsy...

    That would be interesting. But, why would Rachel suddenly develop selective amnesia concerning the Psi-Technique she co-developed?
    It's not the first time writers have erased skills from Rachel's repertoire for *reasons*. But this makes sense as she created them as Mother Askani, and most of her memories of that life were fragmented when she came back. So that's the instance of her brother teaching her the skills she had created in a different life.

    Wait. I'm confused... Sins of Sinister is being played out in the Otherworld dimension?
