ComicBookResources has the preview of X-Force #25 as the toll of their dark and dirty deeds begins to fall out.


Now that looks like a more plausibly Asian Psylocke than previous artists have drawn her.

Will Betsy stay? Or will the new threats remind her why X-Force was created in the first place.

It happened off panel, and originally appeared to be a sort of genetic engineering performed by Spiral for... some Asian crimelord. (I want to say Japanese, but since she used the name Lady Mandarin for a time, and the Mandarin is Chinese, I'm not sure) I think the Hand were involved too.

There was no suggestion of a body switch, it appeared that her body and some of her thoughts had been rewritten. It wasn't until years later that the Psylocke/Revanche thing was revealed/retconned.

So the original idea was that her body wasn't switched but altered to look like what she is today?

What issues did this happen anyway? I still have the Marvel DCU thing going and I think I'd like to see it for myself.

Pretty much yes

It happened after she went through the Seige Perilous in X-Men 251, and then Uncanny X-Men #255–258 (according to wiki, I don't recall myself)

Yes, the X-Men's section of the ACTS OF VENGEANCE crossover. It is also the first time Jubilee appeared in her Robin-esque yellow raincoat.

As I recall, readers were led to believe that the new body was a result that whole fresh start the Siege Perilous was supposed to give everyone who went through it. The brainwashing into Lady Mandarin courtesy of the Hand's psychics was supposed to be a separate thing that happened to her once she showed up afterwards.

Except that, everyone else was reincarnated with a new life and new memories, but their original body.

True, though there was nothing to say that the Siege couldn't do that if it was the best way to give the subject a new start at their dreams.

As I recall it split Rogue and her stolen memories from Carol Danvers into two separate people who had to fight to the death for their shared life force as they alternately withered and rotted. So there was plenty of evidence at the time that it could result in some freaky situations.

I'm still not clear on exactly why Spiral and the Hand did the mind-switch thing with Betsy and Kwannon, but I've long since learned my lesson about looking up X-Men storylines for sense-making.

IIRC it was because the Kwannon's former lover wanted her restored to health, and paid Spiral's Body Shoppe to do it... or something.
