Uncanny X-Men Comic Parody

I must say that I'm quite grateful that G-Man posted the previous 4koma I created on the main page of the site. It really caught me by surprise. I also appreciated the members of the staff leaving comments. The other 4koma went over so well. It's really encouraged me to make more for people to enjoy and laugh. The Thanksgiving holiday is now passed and I'm a lot more free to work on more projects. I'm the cook of the family and I was very busy this previous two weeks. I thought in the meantime I would post one of my older comics.
 
This parody comic is actually based on more recent events. The aftermath of the Sisterhood story where the Japanese Psylocke returned to the X-Men in Uncanny X-Men #511. As we all should know by now that Betsy and Emma are hardly what one would call friends. I remember well a scene from some time back. Betsy and Emma were doing the whole 'kiss kiss' greeting. Acting like they were happy so see each other, but mocking the other so only they could hear. I like that not all the X-Men get along well and are "buddies". I portray that relationship in this joke. I hope Emma's lack of enthusiasm comes across well in the first line.

X-Men 4koma - UXM 511
This joke is actually based upon something I noticed years ago when I picked up my very first X-Men comic. It was in the X-Men #1 published in 1991 and the cover work was done by Jim Lee. In the pages I remember noticing just how revealing Psylocke's costume is. The fabric was just so small at her crotch I didn't see how it could cover much of anything. At that age I found this quite intriguing. Fast forward quite a few years and we get this rather crass joke. To wear such a revealing outfit. One would imagine a certain level of 'personal grooming' would be required. At this time Betsy hadn't been back in her Japanese body for too long. I just took the humorous twist on that.
 
There are a few more subtle jokes here. When Emma is talking about, "Wonder around in a swimsuit and those little cat ears-". That's Emma making a sort of mocking statement toward the Japanese fetish stereotype of girls wearing school style swimsuits and cat ears known as "nekomimi". To Emma, she doesn't care if you walk around in fetish clothes among teenagers, but poor hygiene is not acceptable. lol
Also the term "paipan" is another Japanese reference. I could of gone with the term 'Brazilian Wax', but I felt paipan was much more in keeping with the theme of the joke. I'm just going to let you figure it out from the context.
 
I like how Psylocke turns out here. I wanted to make her body seem more toned and strong then Emma's. I know I left out the red sash, but I really didn't want to cover how well her abs came out. She looks like she has the body of a trained fighter, but still feminine and sexy.
 
I hope you enjoy the artwork and you get a good laugh out of it. I look forward to creating something new comics to post and show everyone. I do have one planned that I believe the ladies will enjoy.

Yeah, I wanted to draw what I felt Emma might actually use. I actually believe that women get this joke slightly faster then a guy. Isn't it interesting that Emma had that ready?
 
@inferiorego:
Believe me on this point. This is actually less racy then the one I plan to make for the female audience.

LOL!  Too painful & too long... I always thought she'd be the kind of girl to pay for a luxury spa treatment right after her waxing ;)
