Psylocke Introduces New Weapons
Uncanny X-Men # 1 had a lot of great moments and we will be dissecting most of them. Today we look at Psylocke who returned to her British body after spending decades as an Asian femme fatale.
In one of her first missions in her old body, she joins fellow X-Men Jean Grey, Jubilee, Iceman, Bishop, Cannonball, Angel and Northstar as they scout another politician with an anti-mutant propaganda.
During the public appearance, Jamie Marrox and his dupes suddenly appear and is looking to kidnap Allen.
Unfortunately for Psylocke, Angel gets distracted and leaves her in the middle of the fight. This is when she Reveals her new weapons of choice…
She ditches the katana for a sword and a shield which is very appropriate given she’s back to being British again.
Nothing against that too. She’s adept at using both too as seen in several panels.
Will we see more of Psylocke’s new weapons? Probably. I do hope that she still uses the katana and the daggers from time to time. Those were iconic weapons after all.
