Psylocke Slashes Her Way Into Fine Art With The Help of Sideshow Collectibles

Marvel.com: Elizabeth “Betsy” Braddock has been many things -- part of the X-Men, part of X-Force and even a model; but she has never been fine art. Well until now that is! Behold, in all her psionic glory, the Psylocke Premium Art Print from Sideshow Collectibles.

Sideshow is proud to present Marvel’s drop-dead gorgeous ninja telepath showing off her powers in a rare and vibrant fashion. The stunning and exuberant piece of art is a collaboration from the minds of the talented artists Ian MacDonald, Kris Anka and Fabian Schlaga. It is an absolutely beautiful piece for any X-fan’s collection.

The 18x24" hand-numbered, limited edition gallery art print features authorized penciled artist signatures and an embossed seal of authenticity. This one of a kind piece comes unframed only and is available for pre-order today at this link. Check out the gallery below for more psionic blade wielding pictures!

This looks amazing! But it doesn't look like Anka's art... maybe it's the inking and coloring. But anyway, Psylocke looks gorgeous!

Not related to this art, but Marvel also released the full map for the Battleworld from the 2015 Secret Wars event: http://www.newsarama.com/22828-marvel-release-full-map-of-secret-wars-battleworld.html

Do you guys think any Psylocke will be in it? Unfortunately, I guess 616-Betsy won't be taken to the Battleworld, but some of the other "nations" may have a counterpart for her. The "House of M" teaser did show Psylocke, and the Westchester "nation" seems like it will feature the 1990s X-Men (although it may show only the X-Men who were in the animated series and in the teaser, thus excluding Betsy). And supposedly one of the "nations" will be inspired in the AvX event. Plus, Hickman showed an alternate Betsy in one of his New Avengers issues (although in that world she was Lady Britain, not Psylocke).

Hopefully our girl will be featured in SW, if not the 616-Betsy (the one that really counts for us), at least a Betsy for another world. And hopefully, she (or they) won't be killed in it...
