The daughter of Sir James Braddock and a citizen of the Otherworld. She has an immunity to inter-dimensional travel and is the sister of the reality altering mutant Jamie Braddock. She is also the twin sister to the United Kingdom’s most premiere superhero, Brian Braddock. Hazard a guess? Nope? The answer is Elizabeth Braddock, or more commonly known as Psylocke. Living the superhero life since her teenage years, Betsy (as she also was known as), was originally a charter pilot and then took up a modelling career until her telepathic powers started to emerge. Then, she joined S.T.R.I.K.E, the British equivalent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
After killing an alternate reality rendition of her brother, she used his suit and briefly became Captain Britain and was then kidnapped by Spiral and Mojo after being brutally beaten and blinded by the assassin Slaymaster. Not to mention was then surgically given a new set of artificial eyes thus restoring her sight. She joined the X-Men where she then fought for a peaceful coexistence of humans and mutants, and then her life changed forever.
There is something about some of the costumes of characters of the Marvel and DC universes that we all love. Some are very extravagant and come with rockets and lasers like Tony Stark’s Iron Man suit, whereas some of them, like Black Widow, Black Cat, and even Psylocke are simple, sophisticated but they let the world know who they are and what they are capable of doing. Jennifer Kairis has designed an incredible Psylocke cosplay. With the purple hair, thigh highs and a sexy purple bodysuit, her Psylocke cosplay is a sight for sore eyes!
