Bio

Elizabeth “Betsy” Braddock, was an intelligent and normal young woman born to a prominent British family. Her surprising mutant powers were unlocked when she was mind-controlled by Dr. Synne, empowered by the sentient supercomputer Mastermind. With her growing telepathic and telekinetic powers unleashed, she joined the X-Men, and later X-Force as Psylocke. Captured by the evil Hand her soul was forcibly transferred into the body and split personality of a deadly ninja warrior. Now a powerful mutant hero, and a skilled assassin, Psylocke is willing to utilize her deadly abilities without hesitation when she believes it’s necessary.

Hints

Strong Match-Ups 0 0
  • Wolverine, Wolverine (X-23)
    • When facing Wolverine and X-23, most of the same challenges present themselves and Psylocke is well equipped to deal with them. She wants to keep her opponent’s Power as low as possible (ideally 0) which drastically reduces the amount of health that Wolverine regains per Regeneration triggered. Also, once her Signature Ability is unlocked, she reduces the chance to trigger a Regeneration in the first place.
  • Captain Marvel
    • Somewhat similar to Wolverine and X-23, Captain (and Ms.) Marvel want to build lots of Power to maximize their Signature bonus. Psylocke directly combats this with all sorts of Power Lock/Drain/Burn, keeping them from hitting too hard.
  • Magik
    • Magik is tough on defense in a big part because of Limbo. Limbo is most effective when triggered by an attack that pushes her across a Power threshold, and Psylocke is great at keeping this from happening. If she can get her locked in at 0 Power, she has the potential to take Limbo out of the fight completely.
Weak Match-Ups 0 0
  • Vision, Hyperion
    • Vision’s Signature Ability, and Hyperion’s Cosmic Charges are both examples of abilities that Psylocke will have to be careful around. While her ability to attack without granting Power can be very powerful, it is vulnerable to Power Gains as it turns off as soon as one triggers.
  • Civil Warrior
    • Civil Warrior’s ability to lower Offensive Ability Accuracy can disrupt Psylocke’s ability to strike without granting Power, and it only takes one hit without that ability to start giving the Opponent Power.
  • Spider-Man
    • It’s all about that Evade with Spider-Man isn’t it? Psylocke has to be extra careful around Evading Champions, as her ability to deny Power is one directional. If Spider-Man Evades an attack and Psylocke doesn’t react quickly enough, he’ll land a hit, and she’ll have to get him setup back at 0 Power all over again. This swings more in Psylocke’s favor once her Signature Ability is unlocked, but it still only takes one slip up.
