Brief Bio: Some people lead nice, quiet, simple lives. Betsy Braddock, the X-Woman known as Psylocke, isn't one of those people. The charming and deadly mutant has filled the role of the United Kingdom's premiere super hero, Captain Britain, and had her eyes removed and then replaced with cybernetic implants by Mojo for a twisted reality television show. She has switched bodies with a foxy ninja, trapped evil psychic entities inside her mind, dated an angel and has died/been resurrected in proper X-Men fashion. As an X-Man, one-time member of Excalibur and the Exiles, this girl knows a thing or two about fighting the good fight and can easily lay the smack down on anyone who says otherwise.
Powers: Betsy's psychic blade can put down almost any enemy and her telepathic abilities are top notch. And in her ninja body, she's an even more adept fighter than ever before.
Special Moves: Psi-shot, Psi-blade, Teleport, Psi-thrust, Maelstrom, Kochou Gare
Quote: "Next time I suggest you try fighting back."
