With Psylocke featured in the upcoming film X-Men: Apocalypse, we can expect some extra attention to fall on Marvel’s striking, purple-haired mutant who wields a telekinetic katana. And with that attention, the problem of racial identity in the character’s backstory is getting some new scrutiny. In her current iteration, Psylocke is a white British woman, Betsy Braddock, whose mind --- by a series of outlandish plot developments --- is in the body of Japanese ninja assassin named Kwannon.

‘X-Cessive Force’ Print Breaks Down All The Powers Of Marvel’s Most Violent Mutants

XCessiveHeader

I grew up in the '90s, so no matter what I do with the rest of my life, I will always have a certain amount of nostalgic affection for X-Force. The hyperviolent, gun-toting mutant strike force that was originally created by Rob Liefeld back in 1991 has gone through a lot of different lineups and changes over the years, but one thing they've always had in common is that they specialize in massive amounts of destruction.
But just how is that destruction carried out? Graphic designer Rogan Josh has the answer in a new poster that he made where the various rosters are broken down to show just what they can accomplish, whether it's through claws, blades, claw-blades, or just good old fashioned guns.

New ‘X-Force’ Title to Replace ‘Cable And The X-Force,’ ‘Uncanny X-Force’

X-Force top

Marvel has announced a new X-Force series, set to launch in February, as part of the publisher's All-New Marvel Now initiative. Despite the prominent presence of Cable, the new X-Force won't be "a steroidal macho-fest," says writer Si Spurrier, also of X-Men Legacy.

"It's a slick, nasty, oh-so-grim beast that'll cut your throat and blow up your headquarters before you even know it's there," he told USA Today.

Modern Heroics Done Right In Brian Wood And Olivier Coipel’s ‘X-Men’ #1 [Review]

X-Men. It's a bland title for a comic. No astonishment here; no bid for universal novelty; no claim to the ubiquitous label "uncanny". The new series, headlined by writer Brian Wood and penciller Olivier Coipel, is called only "X-Men", and the simplicity of the title suggests a statement...

Mutant Women of Earth: How Chris Claremont Reinvented the Female Superhero

untitled-2-1360644961

This April Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel launch a new X-Men title with a roster of Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Psylocke, Rachel Grey, Rogue and Storm. That the team is all-female is unusual for a series that isn't defined along gender-lines. What makes the roster extraordinary is that it's an all-star line-up. These are first draft X-Men, and the book could easily have added more top picks -- Dazzler, Emma Frost, Jean Grey, Magik, Mystique -- and still been all-female.

It's hard to think of any other superhero team with such a strong bench of women, and it's especially hard to think of another team where so many female characters rose to prominence within the team itself. What these characters have in common is no mystery; they were all written by Chris Claremont, the man whose name is synonymous with "strong female characters."
