Betsy possesses the mutant ability of an Omega-level telepath and telekinesis, on par with Jean Grey and Charles Xavier. She is often shown with a telekinetic katana blade or psionic knife composed of raw psi-energy at will.
Betsy first appeared as in Captain Britain #8 (December 1976). Betsy was initially a supporting character in the adventures of her twin brother, Captain Britain, even briefly substituting for him in the role, before becoming the mutant superheroine and X-Men member Psylocke in 1986.
Psylocke was first mentioned in X-Men Movieverse in X-Men 2, when Mystique scrolls through Stryker's computer. In the film's novelization, Psylocke makes a cameo as one of the mutants affected by Dark Cerebro. However, Psylocke makes her first official appearance in X-Men: The Last Stand portrayed by Meiling Melançon as a minor villain on Magneto's team against the X-Men, only using her shadow teleportation power onscreen. In the film, Psylocke seems to be killed by Jean Grey, however in the film's novelization she teleports into the shadows to escape. Olivia Munn will portray Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse.
Psylocke has only appeared in two X-Men animated shows: X-Men: The Animated Series and Wolverine and the X-Men. Concept art for her was created for X-Men: Evolution, however the show ended before she came on the series.
