    Default Psylocke Appreciation IV

    Welcome Otherworlders to the House of the Psquadron!



    This is the place to discuss our favorite Japanese-by-way-of-Britain
    telepathic/telekinetic ninja assassin. You can imagine how rare they are to come
    by!

    Psylocke

    Name: Elizabeth "Betsy" Braddock
    Species: Human-Mutant-Otherworlder
    Aliases: Lady Mandarin, Captain Britain
    Team Affiliations: X-Men,
    Excalibur,
    S.T.R.I.KE.]/url],
    The Hand,
    Exiles,
    Captain Britain
    Corps
    , R.C.X,
    Hellfire Club,
    Sisterhood
    Of Evil Mutants

    Occupations: Supermodel, Charter Pilot, Adventurer, Assassin
    Powers & abilities: Telepathy, Telekinesis, able to generate psy-blades.
    Formerly psycho-blasts, precognitive visions, link to crimson dawn allowing her to teleport through shadows. Psylocke has also been classified as a master martial artists, training physically and psychically during her time with the Hand, and from an alternate reality's Ogun, who used science and magic combined to alter the passage of time itself, allowing them to accomplish a lifetime's work in a few short hours. Also keeping herself in peak condition with exercise and sparring with other X-men.




    Born and raised in England, in the small town of Maldon, Essex, Betsy had a very privileged life. By the time Betsy's parents had dies she had become a charter pilot, her older brother Jamie a successful race car driver, and her twin Brian Baddock the UK hero known as Captain Britain. Betsy soon quite piloting and became a model. Dying her hair purple Betsy became an international
    supermodel success
    .



    As Betsy's powers grew, she was recruited into Britain's answer to SHIELD, STRIKE. She was sent to infiltrate the Hellfire Club but was warned off by Tessa. After staying with the STRIKE through its downfall and formation into RCX, which led to her taking up the mantle of Captain Britain. This brought her into conflict with Slaymaster who blinded. She was then kidnapped by Mojo and Spiral who sought to use her as their puppet. [http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/l...-2.jpgurl=]She was freed by the New Mutants and [url=http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/ll105/Bedlam_2008/psylocke%20only/048-1.jpg]helped after[/ur] the [url=http://s286.photobucket.com/albums/ll105/Bedlam_2008/psylocke%20only/?action=view&current=049-1.jpg]events of the Mutant Massacre. After proving herself and beating back Sabretooth she was made a member of the team. She remained a member till they sacrificed themselves on public television. They were resurrected by Roma and made their new headquarters the Australian Outback. Soon however they mutants had to flee through the mystical
    Siege Perilous and Betsy was found by the Hand naked and amnesiac. Their leader Matsu'o
    Tsurayaba had plans to revive his brain dead lover using Kwannon's body. He enlisted the help of Spiral who did her job a little too well. And when Kwannon was not revived they opted to make Betsy the prime assassin for the Hand. Betsy was eventually found and rescued by Wolverine and Jubilee. Together the three set out Madripoor eventually making their ways back to the X-men. Through the time Betsy continued on going through changes such as http://Kwannon returning believing h...Betsy Braddock, fighting Sabretooth again, Crimson Dawn revival, and fighting the Shadow King.

    After a power Swap with Jean Grey Betsy gained telekinetic abilities and joined Storm's Xtreme
    X-men team. She was, however killed by vargas, but later revived by her crazy brother Jamie. She joined the Exiles and faced an alternate reality Slaymaster, and soon she was kidnapped by the Sisterhood of Mutants and brainwashed into joining their cause.
    She was able to free herself
    with the help
    of her bestfriend
    Dazzler
    and once again came back to the X-men. She also goes on a mission to kill Matsuo
    once and for all.

    Recently, Psylocke joined the Uncanny X-Force team and attempted to keep Archangel's dark side from overwhelming him. She also became the target of the affections of her team mate, Fantomex.

    As the X-Men fracture after the events of Schism, Betsy finds herself on both sides of the Blue/Gold divide. She remains part of Uncanny X-Force and appears to be central to the Adjectiveless X-Men team.

    I like Betsy.
    Believe me, if I'd felt it was the way to go, I would have done it. Thank the goddesses I didn't have to. But don't flatter yourself, you couldn't have stopped me if you tried - Storm

    He'll yeah! Thread number 4!!! Can't wait for Regenesis. I'm excited to see Betsy's reaction and can't wait to see her leading a team. Although A list status scares me, I'm so beside myself that our girl is getting so much exposure!

    PLEASE GOD FIRST PAGE?

    Been browsing for a long time - and have decided to make my debut in the 4th series towards honoring the locked psy

    It's grandfuckingtastic reading so much of her in the current books after growing up and learning to read via the old Uncanny's - particularly The Outback. Betsy quickly raised to be top tier faves - growing up I considered her my dream girl, but looking back I'm pretty sure I just wanted to be her.

    *woot first page.
    ** I look forward to joining and sleuth-ily-ing raising the ranks of the Psquardon. This new thread shall usher in an age never before imagined.
