Psylocke by nightambre Psylocke by nightambre
Something seriously tossed haphazardly together to test out the new tablet.

that said... I must be the worst Psylocke fan around. I:

1) Liked the Ninja Betsy.
2) Don't think Claremont/Lee ruined her. I think Niczieza, with perhaps some help from Lobdell, ruined her.
3) Hated the Body Swap copout. See the above number. It was a lot better when she was just "Genetically modified".
4) Hated her with Archangel. Talk about seriously tossed together with no warm up. Refer again to number 2.
5) Was very amused with the Sabretooth (albeith an AU Sabes) hook up. X-men #28 amused me with this very thing. I seem to be the only one to remember that there were prior flirtatious episodes with Sabes. WITH the one that actually tried killing her!
6) Do not think Larocca, or whoever penciled X-treme, was the best person to handle her. He draws women like they're men in drag that are v. good at tucking. Alan Davis is Best Betsy Artist. With Jim Lee close second.
7) Really didn't mind her Exiles Outfit. At least it took away artists' reason for drawing buttcrack and ass-shots constantly.

There were other points I think I had, but these are the major ones I find myself on the opposite end of when I venture to read what other Psylocke fans like.

I'm alone on my island. T___T :P

Psylocke belongs to Marvel. <3

actually lobdell & nicieza made me care for her, claremont after a while can become reaaally annoying
i liked the crimson dawn mini
i tend to ignore what writers did since 2000 (& fuck morrison's shit of a run) so for me she's with warren & just fine ( screw whatever claremont did since then i mean... people say cable has a screwed backstory? wroooooong the askani for me was one of the most untapped stories in marvel & i enjoyed all the mini series about it there! bite me 90's haters it wasn't perfect but i take it over this neo silver age garbage! also house of m, civil war & secret invasion were shit

They didn't write her badly, but they were the one the 'Body swap' thing was done under, so I'm assuming one or the other cooked it up. It was never meant to be that convoluted, and when it was initially introduced, it was so full of holes that a lot of long time readers at the time had a hard time swallowing it. They spent the next few years trying to fix it.

As for the rest, um, okay? Does tend to prove my point about how I've not found many others who share my thoughts on the matter.

You know, I think you're getting better. I remember some of your older Psylocke art, and something about the face on this one looks really nice.

Then again, I'm not familiar with the character herself. |D;;

I posted one pic of bets before. It was weird. the head was way too big and I didn't really like it.

Psylocke's an awesome character--when handled right. :)
