On a related topic... I don't get that if she's such a competent swordswoman, she only relies on a soulsword in battle... If she would also carry a regular sword, she would be much more dangerous than she already si.
Few X-Men walk around with blatantly lethal weaponry. For the company, it's an image thing, they put more emphasis on the powers than on the weapons. This holds true even for the people who probably would be better served by carrying around weapons -- such as how David Alleyne and Danielle Moonstar are both depowered mutants but only one chooses to enter into battle while armed.
But she already has a sword that, forget precedent, basically cuts whatever the writer wants and can be summoned at will. Why would she burden herself with a second regular sword that she has to lug around everywhere?
