    Nice overview covering some of the most notable event's in Psylocke's history, I hope you do one on Captain Britain at some point, heck, one on the entire Braddock family would be interesting to see!

    That was great G-Man!
     
    So just to make sure the Alan Moore haters heard right, Alan Moore was the first writer to make her a fighter in Marvel U.K.'s Captain Britain?  
     
    Is it also true Alan Moore created the term 616?

    I left a few things on the cutting room floor for time - one of the things was at what point she was portrayed japanese. I believe it was when she came from marvel uk to marvel; there is no real explanation however.

    Did she fight Sabretooth more than once?  I mean prior to their fight at the mansion.  That was in 1995ish right?    So she was just hanging around with the X Men for 7 years before they made her official? The pic of her fighting Sabretooth at the mansion confused me.

    Another great 3 minutes of history, I really liked this one, I wanted to know about Psylocke and Slaymaster, ever since the two battled in the Exiles. Thanks G-man.

    Okay, I thought the Siege Perilous had something to do with making her Asian. <shrugs>  Her history is way overcomplicated.  I have a little bit better idea of what happened with her now though.

    After she went in the Siege Perilous, that's when Kwannon found her and they had that spiritual bonding thing. Then Matsuo and Spiral turned her into Lady Mandarin. So basically magic and trickery turned her Asian.

    @SupremoMaximo: There were two Sabretooth fights.  The first fight was drawn way back in the day by Alan Davis around issue 215.  The one pictured was drawn by Joe Madureira around issuee 325.

    @G-Man: Whoa whoa whoa, that bit about Kwannon reaching out and their spirits fusing, that was just how Matsuo had explained their body switch to Kwannon. The real story was that Kwannon had been sent to assassinate Lord Nyorin and Matsuo intercepted, accidentally throwing her off a cliff. He recovered her body and coincidentally had come across Psylocke's battered Brit body on the docks and used the combo of Nyorin's resources and Spirals tinkering to preserve both their minds and bodies after blending their essences. (makes her sound like an herbal shampoo)
     
    The rest was spot on. It's tough to cram that much into such a short timespan, but I'm giddy that you elaborated on her UK origin. I heart Alan Moore, the crazy foo XD
