Betsy "Bee" Braddock


Psylocke (Elisabeth Glorianna “Betsy” Braddock) is a Marvel Comics superhero, sister to Captain Britain. Created by writer Chris Claremont and artist Herb Trimpe.

Psylocke is a mutant with telepathic abilities. She is also a highly skilled hand-to-hand combatant.


Betsy (aka Bee) was born in and raised in Maldon, England. Betsy and her brothers had a very privileged life. She is the twin sister of Brian Braddock, better known as the superhero Captain Britain. During her teenage years she trains to become a pilot, and dyes her naturally blonde hair dark purple.

She was later kidnapped by the other-dimensional television producer Mojo and his henchwoman, the six-armed, cyborg sorceress Spiral. She was implanted with bionic eyes and transferred into an asian body (to improve ratings). Giving her the name “Psylocke”, Mojo made her the star of the Wildways TV program – which featured her performance as she tormented members of the Captain Britain Corp teen team unit, most notably Agosto/Rio and Viktor. After regaining control of her own mind through the help of her friends, she began working to control her powers with the help of her brother.

She was last seen in a Dream state by Agosto daCosta, wherein she mentioned that she was interred at the Mutant Preservation Facility, and in a relationship with a winged man named Warren.
