BIRD IS THE WORD: Psylocke Appreciation

   Another short and sweet Psylocke Appreciation segment. In the last segment, we left off with Betsy taking on the role of Captain Britain and ending up getting her eyes gouged out by Slaymaster and her going to Switzerland to recuperate.

   Continuing on our journey in New Mutants Annual #2 (1986):

   In New Mutants Annual #2, Betsy was kidnapped from the Alps by Mojo, brainwashed and given cybernetic eyes. This is the issue where she is referred to as "Psylocke" for the first time. She became the star of Mojo's new show "Wildways".

   After Brian Braddock and the New Mutants rescued her, Betsy took up residence at their mutant-training academy, run by Magneto at the time in absence of Professor Charles Xavier.

   Stay tuned for the next segment where Psylocke meets Sabertooth!
