Psylocke, after Joshua Middleton

Another copy, with a few changes, no doubt for the worse.

(I had to look up the character on Wikipedia to make sure I'd spelled her name right. It's been a while since I read X-Men.)

Back when I read superhero comics, Betsy was not the cyborg-ninja she is today. OTOH, I like that newer look a lot better.

Yeah, she was also originally white European, not Asian, and had psychic powers instead of telekinesis. I think she's died at least twice and had her powers and appearance changed dozens of times at the whim of comic book writers over the years. Reading through her article on Wikipedia reminded me of all the stupid things about long-running underwear-vigilante comic books.

I do like the look, though. (Well, honestly the costume is a bit on the silly side, but what underwear-vigilante doesn't have a silly costume? For comics, it's relatively restrained.)
