i'm surprised that at this point they've never brought back the actual original Betsy Braddock. Not that i'm complaining and they have in one way or the other. but i mean a proper transfer back to her original form. atleast for a little while.

If memory serves, the Original Betsy Braddock came down with the Legacy Virus and is dead, but that's never stopped an X-Man before.

Looks awesome!  I will miss the old Psylocke though. :)

(Although after 30 years as a Ninja, I'm sure Betsy can still swing  a sword. ;) )

Great work as always, however if this is her new outfit, im over it. Nothing needed to be changed IMO....Do not need to go back to the old Betsy... Its like the sex appeal is being removed from all female characters now...

"Its like the sex appeal is being removed from all female characters now..."

I've two opposing thoughts on this:

1. I wouldn't call it removing sex appeal, but rather, anything that could be found sexually objectifying. Marvel is trying very hard to cater to non-traditional audiences instead of being the boys club it's always been. (And let's be candid, it largely *has* been a sausage-fest in comicdom.) If anything, they are asking the question: why is it that all sorts of people go to see our movies, but only guys read our comics? What can we do to make ourselves more palatable to female readers? And their answer is to try to improve the writing and make the heroines less eye-candy and more identifiable to young girls. Or conversely, avoid doing what DC did with Starfire: presenting her in the cartoons one way, but then over-sexualizing her in the New 52 relaunch of Red Hood & the Outlaws. (I do find it ironic, however, that many modern feminists have the same attitude and outlook as the Starfire they loudly criticized: "I'm a warrior, an individual, and I'll do whatever I want, including having sex with whomever I want. No one owns me and no one will tell me how to live my life." But since this version of Starfire was considered sexually objectified for the benefit of men, it was demonized by feminists instead of appreciated for what it was.)

2. Having said that, I DO believe that all the traditional bastions of "boys clubs" - from gaming, to comics, to pr0n, to even the Boy Scouts - are under intense pressure to stop being "for" boys and men, as if the idea of letting men have something to themselves is patently offensive to modern feminism. (Guys, don't feel like you're being singled-out; modern feminism gives the same amount of ire and indignation to women who choose to embrace historical gender roles or ideals.) And it will continue only as long as organizations feel more threatened by being castigated on social media as being "anti-woman" than they feel threatened by the lack of revenue driven by men voting with their wallets. This is not the first time feminists, en masse, have tried to re-order society to meet their sensibilities, it's just the first time they've tried it in the era of social media, so it seems much more intense.

If you want ultra sexy super heroines, Mark Beachum is the artist for you. He quit main stream comics 20 years ago for this same reason and was tired of being censored along with the backroom politics.

As for you statement, SJWs want to destroy society. That is their only goal. With comics SJWs want to remove everything that makes comics comics. There can't be a strong confident sexy woman. It has to be a sociopath, who needs to be falsely praised by others to make themselves feel special. They can't do it by shear acts of actual heroism.

Seriously stop blaming things on SJW's. I know that's the fake boogeymen you guys like. But You're just as SJW as the people you claim are "Ruining" the world.  You can't appreciate people wanting to be equal, and unobjectified. But get upset with them if they change something YOU love. Adding more eyes and readers is ALWAYS a good thing. Unless you need to be appeased to. Before you call me an SJW look at my art. The difference is, I publish in my lane. I read in others. I draw what I want, and publish where those people want to see my work, But I can also adjust myself. MY characters are mine to do with as I please. You want to draw for a major publisher, then hush about being "Censored". You're not. You CHOSE to work under their rules. 

Stop blaming the worlds Ill's on SJW's. It's tired.

Not sure how you interpreted what I was saying as wanting sexy super-heroines, but thanks for the reference link. If anything, I was trying to make a dispassionate observation about the direction of comicdom, for good or ill.

And I don't ultimately agree with the idea that SJW are anarchists. Rather, I think they are largely comprised of the disenfranchised who feel the only real power they wield is through social media, and to whom everything - from social aggression to simple faux pas - is an opportunity to validate themselves. After a while, their audience will get weary of the constant drumbeat and walk away. Just wait.

As for radical feminism, I think the issue there is that equality of opportunity and voice was not the panacea that many thought it would be, so they're left trying to figure out what to do next. As a result, they lash out at anything that isn't inherently pro-woman - forgetting that equality is supposed to be equal parts pro-woman and pro-man - under the theory that anything that isn't pro-woman must inherently be oppression. Already, we see other feminists rejecting this idea and pushing back against the so-called attack on masculinity, so I figure it's only a matter of time before social media stops paying attention.

The sex appeal is being removed because radical feminists and SJWs are offended by the sight of attractive women lol

Great pic, though I'm not sure about restoring Betsy back to her old body after 30 years.
