I really would recommend this to all Psylocke fans who can afford it. When Betsy Braddock was first introduced in Captain Britain she had no powers. She was just Brian's twin sister. It was Alan Moore who had her dye her hair purple and develop psychic and precognitive powers, when he took over running things. This volume collects every appearance of Betsy (With powers) before joining the the X-men. It even includes the two annuals where she crossed from being on Captain Britain to being an X-Man.
