As a proud Englishman, I enjoy reading about British characters who are well-written and complex. Psylocke fits that description as one of the most prominent British superheroes in mainstream comics. A member of the X-Men, Elizabeth Braddock is the twin sister of Captain Britain and one of the most powerful telekinetic users in the Marvel Universe. She was created by Chris Claremont and developed from a support character into a superhero with her own unique mythology.
When thinking of X-Men comics, there are several iconic stories that come to mind: The Dark Phoenix Saga, Days Of Future Past and X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills to name a few. One of the greatest X-Men runs in recent memory is Rick Remender’s Uncanny X-Force, which consisted of Wolverine, Psylocke, Archangel, Deadpool and Fantomex using lethal force against mutant threats. I picked up the graphic novel that contained the Dark Angel Saga and it’s one of the most heart-wrenching stories I’ve ever read. There are so many themes to appreciate, including nature vs nurture and what it means to be a hero. Here is The Comic Vault’s review of the graphic novel.
