After trying various careers including charter pilot and fashion model, she became an agent of S.T.R.I.K.E's Psi-division but was almost killed by the assassin Slaymaster. Later, she aided her brother and his allies in the fight against Mad Jim Jaspers, and later still fought Kaptain Briton, an evil otherdimensional doppelganger of her brother; Kaptain Briton attempted to rape her, but Betsy used her mental powers to destroy his brain, killing him. She briefly stood in for her brother as Captain Britain (empowered by the costume formerly worn by Kaptain Briton, and assisted by Captain UK) but was blinded by Slaymaster, who her brother later killed. Her sight restored, she eventually joined the X-Men as Psylocke and also served briefly with a short lived incarnation of the superteam Excalibur.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
