The 50 Greatest X-Men of All-Time

Marvel.com: In commemoration of the X-Men’s 50th anniversary, Marvel.com brought together a panel of experts, including fans and professionals alike, to select the 50 all-time greatest members of the team.

11. Psylocke
First Appearance: Captain Britain (1976) #8 
Joined the X-Men: Uncanny X-Men (1963) #213 
Why She’s #11: “Being an X-Man has been a transformative experience for Betsy Braddock—literally. Joining up after taking down no less a threat than Sabretooth, Psylocke would see her mind mangled and body swapped after falling through the Siege Perilous and being abducted by Mojo. Persevering, the psychic ninja adapted, learning new skills, and becoming a key player in the fight for mutantkind. She found a love with Archangel that survived tragedy and even overcame death to continue her struggle for what’s right. In recent years, Betsy has emerged as one of the more headstrong warriors among the X-Men, be it on the main team or with X-Force, making tough choices others would shy away from and continuing to sacrifice for friends, lovers and above all, the cause.” – Ben Morse 

Digital Spotlight Comic: Uncanny X-Men (1963) #256

#11 is not bad but I think there will be some characters in top 10 that she definitely should have beaten.

I loved the text! It shows her strength in the X-Man, not just physically but also in terms of her determination and courage.

As for her rank, I actually think she should be behind Professor X (come on, he founded the X-Men!). But then again, this list is full of absurd decisions, from BEAST ranking higher than Wolverine, Cyclops and Storm to KITTY PRYDE getting the #1 spot (I get that she's important and all, but the girl was absent from the X-Men for almost TWENTY YEARS... she might deserve a top 10, but definitely NOT a #1).

Well damn. I didn't even notice that part 5 was up.
And you are right FSaker.
Beast above Wolverine or Storm? That's BS. Beast shouldn't even be in top 10.
And good old Chuck X should be in top 3 by all means.
Kitty as #1? Facepalm...
