Yes! I love the X-Men, and Psylocke has always been one of my fav's
I used to be a big X-Men fan (I'm a nerd and lover of comic books). I have almost a complete run of the first Uncanny series (almost all 500+ issues). I don't know, my interest waited over the last couple of years. It's all Wolverine now, my least favorite character.

I'm a big comic book fan too, though I stopped buying them because they just got too pricey. That's amazing you have almost the complete run of the first Uncanny series! Man, I wish I had a collection that vast. My X-Men collection is a smattering of stuff from the early 90's, and then from 2000-2006, a 2 year gap while I was out of the country, and then 2008-probably 2010 or so. I agree about Wolverine. He is so over-used, and it has kind of killed the character and made him a bit of a parody of himself. I think he's excellent when he's in his element and he isn't being over-used, but his over-exposure has made him kind of uninteresting. They're gonna kill him off this year though...at least for awhile. You know how it goes.
Batman is awesome too. A great variety of characters to choose from. If I were to get into buying comics again, Batman would definitely be on my list.
Yea...I've basically switched to DC entirely except for a couple of Marvel books. Marvel is overpriced. Well, DC is too, but Marvel seems more so. Nice to know there are other SP fans who are nerdy as me tho

Oh yeah, Marvel is definitely over-priced. It's a big part of why I had to stop buying. I appreciated the "Drawing the line at $2.99" thing from DC though...but still, I remember when I was getting comics for much cheaper. Maybe it has something to do with inflation, I dunno. But getting me to pay more than $3 for a comic book, on a regular basis, is starting to push it. There's so many to buy and the money adds up quick. And yeah, I agree! Always great to come across another comic book fan, especially one who is into SP as well
