    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Psylocke has returned to the X-Men! Following the defeat of Madelyne Pryor and her Sisterhood, Psylocke travels to Japan to re-inter her former body in its proper resting place. But when a swarm of Hand ninjas attack Psylocke and do the unspeakable under orders from Matsu’o—the assassin originally responsible for transplanting Psylocke’s mind into the body of an Asian ninja— Psylocke determines that Matsu’o is one loose end that can no longer be left unresolved. It’s a tale of carnage and revenge, brought to you by superstars Chris Yost ( X-FORCE) and Harvey Tolibao ( AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE)!

    Over the course of her life, Betsy Braddrock also known as Psylocke, has been many things: a young girl growing up at her family's manor in Britain. A purple-haired supermodel turned X-Man. And a telepathic ninja, her mind transplanted into the body of the Japanese assassin Kwannon. Though she was transformed into Kwannon against her will, Psylocke long ago made peace with Matsu'o Tsurayaba, the man who was responsible. Or so she had thought.

    As Psylocke arrives in Japan, eager to bury her former body, she is attacked by a swarm of ninjas. While she keeps her attackers at bay, she is unable to prevent them for carrying out their mission. They immolate the body, doing so under orders from Matsu'o.

    As the last remains of her former body crumble to dust, Psylocke vows: Matsu'o Tsurayaba must die.

    I love it 0

    I love how this story is going so far. The good thing is that they didn't mention about what happen to her with the Sisterhood, which was a very bad plot, only that her body was burned by Alison. I love how through out this plot, she has some inner conflict with herself. Not feeling the way she used to feel, all her memories that meant the most to her was in her original body. Her conversation with both Alison, Scott, and Logan was very interesting to read. One of the most new part was when she ...

    Something to fight 0

    I come to this series (a few years late) as an outsider on all things to do with the X-Men and only vaguely aware of the character (though that is one of the main reasons why I was interested in this.)  Of course having little understanding of the X-Men stories means that I also have very little clue of what is going on here, which for someone just picking up this book might be an issue, but I would assume most X-Men fans have a firm grasp on what is going on here.  Still even with these limitat...

    I'm probably gonna get a lot of heat for this...(spoilers) 0

        Hmm...I don't know what it was about this issue that i just didn't find appealing. The Art was good, so i suppose it had to be something with the story. I guess i was just disappointed that this book chose the path to follow the normal cliche. So we get Psylocke who is taking her original body back to Japan to bury it. Japan of all places i have no idea why. Lo and behold Betsy gets ambushed by the most cliched thing you could ever get ambushed by in Japan. Yep thats right Hand Ninjas. Who a...
