Never really liked the Pyslocke/Archangel coupling, so going to have to go with Fantomex on this one :)
The X-Force Love Triangle: Who's Right for Psylocke?
How much love can the two share? Yeah at first they were a great couple like Scott and jean used to be, but then Archangel nearly wrecked her car when he caught Psylocke taking Neal Shaara for a joyride and accused her of having an affair, and then dumped her shortly after. Then he went the jailbait route with Husk as soon as she died and said he loved her. And now that she's back he's back with her (tho he never paid her the slightest attention for a while after her resurrection). Dont like the way Remender is writing Betsy..first he seems to have forgotten that Psylocke has some telekinetic powers that he never has her use (why the hell wouldn't she just wrap the bomb in a tk forcefield instead of trying to dismantle it by hand) and now he's forgotten that those two have been over for a while. And I hate fantomex..put Besty with Logan..i've always thought the mutant ninja should get with the mutant samurai (Wolverine's daughter in the MC2 universe has "Psi-claws" hint hint)I agree with you in everything except the Logan part. seriously, I can hardly count how many dozens of people have gotten some Wolverine action - for a loner, he sure gets around....
I'd take those two over her and Fantomex, though - it's a fun idea to mess with, but I can't possibly see it lasting, what with the whole dashing French rogue motif. but yeah, Warren and Betsy have been out of the game for a long time. then again, I think Rick Remender was just being adamant about getting it in there, so it was bound to happen.
and I never got that either - I know Elektra has psychic powers - but seriously, her and Logan have a kid and her power is 'psi-claws'? apparently even natural selection has a funny way of marketing characters.
Single and all males should be nothing more than dogs at her beck and and command, be the Warren, Phantomex or whoever.now you're speakin' my language :P
I don't see her with Fantomex at all. Writing her as hating him for his arrogance and lack of morals and then suddenly falling for him is simply pandering to teenage boys. Psylocke is one my favorite comic characters and I was never happy with her and Angel, but I was certainly a ton happy with that arrangement than her being with that ass-hat Fantomex.
I don't like love triangles, and I find that Marvel potentially uses them to far to often, though it is fun to have a bit of drama occasionally in a comic. I love the series, since it's been consistently amazing issue after issue, blend of plot, action, character development, and so on and so forth. However, Remender seems to be putting a bit TOO MUCH romance in the comic. Recently we had Wolverine hook up with the Jean Grey from Age of Apocalypse, which was neat, but then Fantomex and Psylocke locked lips a good 10 pgs after! Overusing something much. While I think that it's cool to have a bit of underlying romance, I hope that it doesn't become a major part of this series. It frankly doesn't need it. Having Fantomex casually flirting with Psylocke when she has her problems with Archangel is all good fun, but imagine how the quality of the comic would change if Fantomex and Psylocke actually got serious??
With my name and avatar you'd think my answer would be obvious but I don't really care. Honestly, this love triangle crap is boring to me. I know this kind of thing has been a staple in my beloved comics since the beginning but it still doesn't interest me.

This is bugging me but the third image has a typo in the comic (not the article). It is not that big of a deal as everyone mistakes "were" with "we're," but it is somewhat annoying.
"We're" is short for "we are." i.e. "We are due for a session." Contracted, that would be written, "We're due for a session." Were; verb, a 2nd person singular pt. indicative, plural past indicative, and past subjunctive of be. i.e. "Were you thinking yourself clever to point out the downfall of others on an online forum?"
There is not a typo in this comic.
