As terrible as the art and story has been, I like it when the creative team stretches Psylocke's abilities and showcases how powerful she actually is -- an Omega level mutant. This was established in Rick Remender's run on X-Force, but has not been touched upon since. She basically retained consciousness after being drained by "hopping" into Sapphire's mind and blew her up from the inside out. That's pretty frightening, in an awesome way.

It's interesting that the Wolverine illusion can harm Sapphire for real. Maybe it was a telekinetic construct?

telekinetic and I think telepathic to make others bit see it

Wow that was nice!! Awesome when they let Betsy be as creative as possible with her powers!!!

I don't think Betsy is an Omega Level Mutant. I think she's an Omega Level Telepath after AOA Jean used the Phoenix Force to unleash Psylocke's psychic potential (kinda like what Emma did for Iceman). Like Jean, Professor,Emma. Jean is probably the only one out of that list that is as actually an Omega Level Mutant (maybe Professor of Onslaught is counted but Onslaught was made of many parts). Though since she doesn't have Phoenix Force anymore she might not be either.

X-Man, you are correct about Betsy. See this article.

Nope. Omega Level Mutant and "burgeoning" Omega Level Telepath.

I tend to agree with other Anonymous - she was stated in interview as an Omega Level Mutant. (Anything right from the source trumps an article written by Comic Book Resources.)

Thanks, guys. Well, that Marvel link explains why she was hinted at as being part of Apocalypse’s feared 12 way back in an old X-Factor panel in the 80s before that was retconned when we actually learned who the 12 were. Also, that could explain why her consciousness can survive out of body and display her powers in a different body if we wanted to use those as proof that she is an Omega mutant.
