BIO:

The daughter of a wealthy British family, Elisabeth Braddock discovered that she had the mutant ability to read other's minds. Her talents led her to join the X-Men, where she learned to amplify and control her skills. A terrible accident in Japan left her near death, and through an ancient ritual her mind was placed in the body of Kwannon, a skilled ninja who also possessed limited psionic abilities. It took her some time to grow accustomed to her new body, but found the physical skills it possessed to be a great asset. Her mental powers had also increased, and she had the ability to form a "psychic knife" which she used to neutralize opponents without causing any physical damage. The other X-Men had to adjust to her new look as well, but now she is once again a trusted member of the group.

I'm pretty sure Psylocke was one of the first ninja girls I ever had a crush on... (hey, I was like 8 years old, gimme a break.) ^o^ Psylocke filled the "ninja girl" role in the X-Men comic series, and in the OG Marvel universe. Her original attire is iconic... and she spawned plenty of imitators Kitana being one.

In the Capcom Versus games... Psylocke has badass fighting style with gorgeous, dynamic animations. The original Psylocke X-Men: Children of the Atom sprite still holds up to this day! Psylocke was also a pretty fun and solid character in every game she appeared in. In MVC2, she became notorious as a strong assist character when paired with Magneto (and many others), thanks to her speedy & unique combo options that her assist attack provided. That said, she's got quite a "reputation" in MVC2, and can even hold her own against top tiers in the game all while doing her badass ninja thing. Hope to see Psylocke in X-Men '97!
