Thanks to Secret Wars, we had lots of Psylocke(s) in 2015!

Even though the A-Force one was likely killed by the zombies, the other alternate Psylockes made up for that. We had a pre-body switch one in Inferno, a Lady Mandarin one fighting Shang-Chi, a '92 one being more efficient than all the other X-Men COMBINED... and even though the child version in the AvX tie-in only appeared in two panels, her mischievous smile watching Illyana kicking the Avengers' asses was great!
