Recap 2018 • Psylocke

Recap 2018  Fortunately, things started to look up again for Miss Braddock, and she had twice as many appearances compared to 2017. The year began with Psylocke leading the Astonishing X-Men against Proteus and the Shadow King. Soon after, Betsy was caught up in the Hunt for Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor, which ended on a happy note as Psylocke reclaimed her original body after 29 years. The event also saw the resurrection of Kwannon. By the end of the year, Betsy joined an all-star cast in the relaunch of Uncanny X-Men. This marks the first time Betsy is a member of the main X-Men team in 20 years. Last but not least, Psylocke had a very joyful reunion with her brother Brian Braddock and got to meet her niece Maggie. Refresh your memories and talk about your favorite stories, writers, artists, quotes, etc. Happy New Year!
