Psylocke The sister of the powerful reality altering mutant Jamie Braddock and twin to the United Kingdom's premier superhero Brian Braddock (Captain Britain), Elizabeth Braddock, better known to fans as Psylocke, has been living the superhero life since her teenage years. When her telepathic powers emerged and she joined S.T.R.I.K.E., the the U.K.'s equivalent of the U.N.'s S.H.I.E.L.D.. After killing an alternate reality version of her twin brother, Kaptain Briton, Betsy used his suit and briefly became Captain Britain. Later she joined the X-Men, where she fought for the peaceful coexistence of mutants and humans. Betsy's life was changed forever after crime lord Mats'uo Tsurayaba captured her and switched her mind with the mind of his lover, Kwannon. Betsy was brainwashed into become the Lady Mandarin and learned the art of ninjitsu, but regained her free will and rejoined the X-Men. With her powers switching from telepathy to telekinesis, Betsy eventually joined the splinter group, X-Treme X-Men, while searching for the future-telling Destiny's diaries and was murdered by Vargas. After being resurrected by her brother Jamie, Betsy rejoined the X-Men, briefly joined the Exiles and Excalibur, and returned to the X-Men, while secretly joining the assassin squad of X-Men X-Force. Psylocke's combination of powers, fighting skills, killer instinct, & experience in the battlefield will make her a formidable foe to whom ever she faces. Powers Telekinesis- Ability to psionically manipulate and control the physical aspects of reality. She can also move and levitate other people. While she can move objects from a distance and fly as other telekinetics do, she has shown little inclination to do either in combat situations. Shown to be capable of levitating more than 100 tons without a struggle, and can even force herself to a higher extent. She can also create telekinetic shields of various sizes and strength and she can fire mental force blasts that can shatter mountains. Her telekinesis is also much stronger now than it was before her death. Telekinetic Katana- Psylocke can manifest a telekinetic katana blade composed of raw psi-energy, which at its lowest intensity, functions to disrupt neural pathways and sever the bonds between molecules, and at its highest level, her katanas can slice an armored opponent and cut through the armor, but leave the attacker physically unharmed. She can also use her swords to shatter telepathic power-inhibitors imposed on others. Her telekinetic katana is strong enough to harm other beings more powerful than herself. Tactile Telekinesis- Uses her telekinesis to enhance her speed, strength, Agility and other fighting skills into super-human levels. Telepathy- She possesses mental powers to affect and manipulate the minds of other sentient beings. Psylocke can read minds and communicate mentally with others over long distances. Telepathic Tracking- Enhanced psionic senses enable her to detect and track other sentient beings by their unique psionic emanations (thought patterns contained in the psionic portion of the spectrum) especially if they pose a threat to her well-being in her immediate vicinity. Psionic Shadow: She is able to mask her presence from others. Her abilities can go undetected and are very difficult to track, even by very powerful telepaths such as Shadow King. She can extend these defenses to others around her as well. Psionic Knife- Described as "the focused totality of her psychic powers," by intensely channeling and focusing her psionic powers to her hands to create psychic blades, razor-sharp edges of pure mental energy which are said to be the ultimate physical manifestation of her powers which she plunges into the minds of her targets directly. She often uses them to disrupt the neurons of her foes by driving the glowing "blade" of mental energy into their skulls. It is able to kill. Mind Control- Capable of controlling the minds of others. Telepathic Illusions- She has the ability to create illusions to make herself seem to be invisible, look like someone else, or make others experience events that are not truly happening. Mental Paralysis- Ability to induce temporary mental or physical paralysis Amnesia- Can erase any awareness of particular memories or cause total amnesia. Psionic Blasts- Can project psionic force bolts which have no physical effects, but which can affect a victim's mind so as to cause the victim pain, unconsciousness, or even death. Abilities Master Martial Artist: Psylocke has been classified as a master martial artist, though the specific fighting arts she has mastered have never been revealed. Presumably, as a ninja, she is skilled in various Ninjutsu techniques such as Taijutsu and Ninja Kenpo. Even though she is known as a ninja and worked for The Hand as one, her fighting skills and techniques far surpass those of the average Hand Ninja. Her skills have been said to rival those of a ninja grandmaster(10th Dan level black belt or above). Psylocke is also very well versed in the use of all Ninja weapons, stealth methods, silent movement, infiltration, concealment, escape & evasion, covert methods, Ninja espionage, and Ninja acrobatics. Master Telepathic Combatant: As a telepath, Psylocke takes advantage of her powers in a fight by reading her opponents' movements seconds before they make them, giving her the opportunity to counter-attack faster, and she can also use her telepathy to mask her presence from other people, humans and super-humans alike. She also creates telepathic illusions to distract her enemies while fighting them and as a ninja, she uses her psychic knife to incapacitate her opponents. Advanced Telekinetic Combatant: As a telekinetic, she often uses her powers to augment her strength and speed, which made her fighting skills so strong that she was able to match and even outmatch other superhumanly strong opponents. Assets Katana- Psylocke often carries a pair of katana with her into battle.
