Psylocke Mini Series

COMPLETED 08/02/2016!





The daughter of Sir James Braddock, a citizen of Otherworld, Elizabeth Braddock is used to inter-dimensional travel. The sister of the powerful reality altering mutant Jamie Braddock and twin to the United Kingdom's premier superhero Brian Braddock (Captain Britain), Elizabeth has been living the superhero life since her teenage years. Originally a charter pilot, Betsy took-up a modeling career, until her telepathic powers emerged and she joined S.T.R.I.K.E., the U.K.'s equivalent of the U.N.'s S.H.I.E.L.D.. After killing an alternate reality version of her twin brother, Kaptain Briton, Betsy used his suit and briefly became Captain Britain. After the assassin Slaymaster brutally beat and blinded Betsy, she was kidnapped by Spiral and Mojo and surgically given artificial eyes, restoring her sight. Naming her Psylocke, Betsy was freed from Mojo's mental control, by the New Mutants and, after fending off an attack by Sabretooth, joined the X-Men, where she fought for the peaceful coexistence of mutants and humans.

Betsy's life was changed forever after crime lord Mats'uo Tsurayaba captured her and switched her mind with the mind of his lover, Kwannon. Betsy was brainwashed into become the Lady Mandarin and learned the art of ninjitsu, but regained her free will and rejoined the X-Men. After starting a long-standing relationship with teammate Warren Worthington III, Betsy was attacked by Sabretooth and Warren used the Crimson Dawn to heal her, giving her a new set of powers to teleport in shadows and distancing her relationship with Warren. With her powers switching from telepathy to telekinesis, Betsy eventually joined the splinter group, X-Treme X-Men, while searching for the future-telling Destiny's diaries and was murdered by Vargas. After being resurrected by her brother Jamie, Betsy rejoined the X-Men, briefly joined the Exiles and Excalibur, and returned to the X-Men, while secretly joining the assassin squad of X-Men X-Force, renewing her relationship with Warren..

I used to love reading comics as a kid enjoying many of the Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge and Richie Rich variety, but it wasn't til I was in college that I first became interested in superhero comics. At the time I was an avid baseball card collector, acquiring many 1950s Topps cards with stars such as Mantle and Mays. When I finally read a superhero comic, it was Wolverine...what a great story, I was hooked. I amassed a rather large collection at the time, delving into other titles like Harbinger and X-O Manowar until the comic industry began to saturate the market with too many variants and I eventually lost interest. Flash forward to 2015..... I ended up buying a Wolverine 1988 series issue #1 graded CGC 9.8. I hadn’t really thought about it much up to that point, but the collecting bug was rekindled. I dug out my collection that had been stored away and decided to start submitting my back issues. I looked online to fill gaps in my various collections and thousands of dollars later I’ve acquired quite a few comics and am trying to avoid collecting too many series at a time! My favorites at this point are the Wolverine 1988 series, Alias 2005 and Harbinger’s 1992 series. I have collected a few odds and ends in between and will eventually fill out my Rai 1992, Shadowman 1992, Psylocke Mini Series 2010 and the various X-23 and NYX series and will consider other series once I have the bulk of these filled up. I also like to collect covers I find appealing (see Incredible Hulk 340) and 1st appearances here and there. It’s all a labor of love!
