    Default Pottymouth Betsy Braddock

    Betsy Braddock, brought up into British nobility, schooled at the most expensive boarding schools in the land, university educated, a charter pilot... what went wrong? Was it the purple hair, becoming a model, joining the X-Men or swapping out your body with an East Asian version that caused you to change?

    Or have you been hanging around in America just too long? Because, in your pursuit of Spiral in today's Uncanny X-Force...



    It's not big and it's not clever.



    Oh dear. Someone call her brother to take her home, I think she's had enough.



    Betsy, please, save it for Quentin, okay?

    Two things

    1. This reads like someone trying to hard to make Psylock a badass.

    2. She picked it up from Logan

    What's she saying? Actual swear words? Since when did Bleeding Cool flinch at such things?

    Please - everyone knows the rich private-schooled kids have the foulest mouths and have used the best drugs.

    It's actually Marvel doing that.

    Well, considering she spent twenty odd years with a personality that could be summed up entirely as "ninja in a swimsuit", frankly anything would be an improvement

    To be fair, that first panel could be considered very British.

    First it was rape in comics, now it's swearing. Rich is a true crusader of decency. Can't wait for the Johnston/McCarthy Hearings where he accuses all comic creators of being immoral communists.

    So this is what passes for "characterization" and "depth" at Marvel these days?

    Sigh.

    Since when has Psylocke ever had ANY characterisation or depth?
