Betsy’s back, but she’s not Betsy…or is she? Rogue certainly doesn’t think she is…
What’s going on? I guess time will tell.
The best stuff in this issue, however, isn’t the stuff with Betsy, it’s the stuff with Rictor inheriting Apocalypse’s legacy…which is an interesting development. Rictor has always been something of a neglected character who didn’t have a clear place in the X-verse, so it’s good to see him finally getting some attention here.
The art is gorgeous, both linework and colouring.
However, this team still hasn’t really clicked for me, and it’s telling that Rachel Summers keeps ending up hanging around…because what this book needs is more connections to the original Excalibur book. Nightcrawler’s not really doing anything and Pete Wisdom could definitely join the team. And, I’d liek to see more of Brian and Meggan too,
