It did wonders in distinguishing her from Jean. Sooo many people still think Rachel is Jean lol. People who don't pay attention obviously, but still.

My X-Men Sketch Book
I don't even mind Betsy when written well, I just don't see anything wrong with the way she was written before the body swap. So what if she wasn't as limber as she became after the body swap, she was still pretty bad ass as the Brit who mind raped people at a moments notice.
Just before. I remember Uncanny #273 while in the shower with Jean, they discuss her being obv. azn and no longer British.When she was first made a ninja, they originally didn't change her race. When Wolvie first encountered her as a ninja, he straight up recognized her as British Betsy. Somewhere along the way, though, they actually started saying she was now physically an Asian woman and this was the work of The Hand. I'm thinking it was either right before or right after X-Men #1 by Claremont and Lee.
What are Kay Cera's powers?
Being part Asian, it's always appreciated when suburban whiteboys help me to avoid internalized bigotry.
Thanks, Tally :)
I prefer Kay Cera's reason for body swapping, but I don't really have a stray thought available for the character.
