Take 10: X-Women

A secret cabal of Marvel staffers has gathered to rank their Top 10 X-Women. Psylocke has ranked at #7!

7. Psylocke

First Appearance: Captain Britain #8 (1976)

Why She Makes the List: "Psylocke has the distinction of not only retaining her popularity, but actually becoming even more popular following massive changes to her character. As a prim and proper British telepath, Betsy Braddock quickly gained a foothold in the hearts of X-fans. However, when she got a hot new Asian bod and developed ninja skills to accompany her telekinetic and telepathic thunder, Psylocke's star really took off. Whatever form she's worn, the sister of Captain Britain has captivated readers with her wit and devil-may-care attitude." – Annihilator882

Spotlight Comic: UNCANNY X-MEN #256 —Psylocke is reinvented as the deadly Lady Mandarin!
