Explanation of the conversion:
History: Elizabeth Braddock is the daughter of Dr. James Braddock,
who was once a denizen of Otherworld, an other-dimensional realm. A being
who called himself Merlin sent Braddock to Earth to father the champion who
would be known as Captain Britain.
Living in England, Dr. Braddock became one of the United Kingdom's
leading research scientists. He married a woman named Elizabeth and they
bought the mansion they renamed Braddock Manor. There Dr. Braddock created
a highly advanced computer complex called Mastermind.
Dr. and Mrs. Braddock's three children, the eldest, Jamie, and the
twins, Brian and Elizabeth, inherited genes from their
father that endowed them with superhuman powers. The children's powers,
however, remained latent for many years.
Dr. and Mrs. Braddock were killed in an explosion in Dr. Braddock's
laboratory at Braddock Manor that was caused by the malfunctioning
Brian Braddock eventually became the costumed champion known as Captain
Britain. Betsy developed the psychic ability which she used in the service
of S.T.R.I.K.E., a British division of the international law enforcement
agency S.H.I.E.L.D. Betsy also developed a highly successful career as a
fashion model. She knew of Brian's double identity, and the two siblings
took up residence in Braddock Manor.
Members of a British government agency called R.C.X., knowing that
Brian Braddock was Captain Britain, attempted to recruit him to work with
them. Refusing to be exploited by the government, Brian Braddock gave up
the role of Captain Britain. The R.C.X. agents then persuaded Betsy to
become Captain Britain II, working with them. Betsy used a costume
taken from an otherdimensional counterpart of Brian, which magnified her
strength to superhuman levels when she wore it and enabled her to fly.
Another other-dimensional hero, Captain UK, trained Betsy to become a
crimefighter, and the two acted as partners on missions together for many
Finally, Betsy launched her solo career as the new Captain Britain,
which came to a quick end when she went into battle against two of the
original Captain Britain's arch foes, the Vixen and Slaymaster. Wearing a
battle suit that amplified his own strength, Slaymaster savagely beat
Betsy nearly to death and blinded her. Sensing her telepathic cries of
agony, Brian Braddock rushed to his sister's rescue and fought and killed
Slaymaster. Realizing he could not forsake his responsibilities, Brian
resumed his role as Captain Britain.
Betsy went to Switzerland to recuperate. While there she was taken
prisoner by the other-dimensional creature known as Mojo. Mojo
took control of Betsy and gave her new, artificial eyes, thereby restoring
her sight. Betsy was rescued through the intervention of the New Mutants, a
team of adolescent mutants. Having regained her free
will, Betsy chose to remain at the New Mutants' home, Professor Charles
Xavier's mansion in Westchester County, New York, which also served as the
secret headquarters of the mutant adventurers called the X-Men.
Betsy proved her courage to the X-Men by resisting the attack of their
enemy Sabretooth when he broke into the mansion. As a
result she was accepted into the ranks of the X-Men, becoming a costumed
adventurer once more under the code name Psylocke.
Later, Psylocke was captured by the crimelord Matsu'o Tsurayaba.
Seeking to save the life of his lover, the female assassin Kwannon,
Tsurayaba oversaw a process through which the minds of Kwannon and the
X-Man Psylocke switched bodies. In the process Kwannon's mind melded with
that of Psylocke, endowing each of them with the same memories and
telepathic abilities. Tsurayaba brainwashed Psylocke and turned her over
to one of Earth's most dangerous men, the Mandarin. Under the name of Lady
Mandarin, Psylocke briefly served the Mandarin, but ultimately Psylocke
regained her free will and returned to the X-Men.
Later Kwannon, in Psylocke's body, became an ally of the X-Men, calling
herself Revanche. For a time there was confusion among the X-Men as to who
was the real Betsy Braddock. Finally, Revanche learned that she was
dying from the Legacy Virus and had Tsurayaba kill her. Thus Betsy's
original body died, but she lived on as Psylocke in Kwannon's original
Psylocke and her fellow X-Man, Angel, fell in love with each other. Psylocke was nearly killed by Sabretooth, but was healed by magical forces from a mystical dimension called the Crimson Dawn. However, Kuragari, a sinister being who had conquered the Crimson Dawn, attempted to corrupt Psylocke's personality through a mystical ring. Kuragari planned to make Psylocke his queen and through her father a genetically powerful bloodline. However, together Angel and Psylocke thwarted Kuragari, and Psylocke's mind is now free of Kuragari's influence.
Psylocke's telepathic powers were lost in a battle with the Shadow King, but she recently gained telekinetic abilities.
Powers: Psylocke is a telekinetic, she can move objects with her mind and levitate herself.
She used to possesses many telepathic abilities, enabling her to read minds, communicate mentally with others over long
distances, stun the minds of others with mental bolts, control the minds of others, and create illusions in the minds of others. Psylocke can intensely focus her psionic powers into her psychic knife, with which she can stun or kill an adversary.
For a time a spell from Roma granted Betsy a type of invisibility to detection from any electronic means and made it so most people would forget her after they met, but this spell seems to have worn off.
