- Fantomex (Jean-Phillipe) (Only in flashback)
Synopsis for 1st story
Paris, then – After their first kiss, Betsy and Cluster have built an intimate relationship. Cluster feels bad for Fantomex, but Psylocke is avoiding him. She says he’s right about her, that she does love to steal. Betsy breaks into the Louvre Museum and decides to steal the King’s Champagne for Cluster. As she takes the bottle, guards wearing masks similar to those of Fantomex surprise her. Her telepathy doesn’t work on them. Psylocke realizes she’s been set up and activates a sensor that releases a freezing gas within the champagne chamber. One of the guards is completely frozen and shatters into a million pieces. Betsy escapes and returns home, only to find Fantomex and Cluster kissing. He seems amused after setting her up.
Madripoor, now – Weapon XIII locks Cluster and Psylocke in a cell. Cluster urges Betsy to kill him so they can rescue Fantomex and the three of them can go back to Paris. She replies that she vowed not to kill ever again. Weapon XIII takes Psylocke to dinner, using his misdirection powers to create beautiful illusions to impress her. He says he loves her and that Cluster and Fantomex only want to use and manipulate her. Psylocke seemingly agrees with him and tells him she needs to kill Fantomex to tie one last loose end.
The Fantomex Love Pentagram explodes!
With the truth about their sordid past revealed, can Fantomex, Psylocke, and Cluster look each other in the eye?
Every psychic ninja needs a vicious animal with no impulse control and a short temper to back her up, right?
Plus: A terrifying surprise villain from the X-past is definitely playing chess, not checkers, across Los Angeles.
