In the comics, Elizabeth Braddock has one of the most complex backstories of all time. As a young British mutant, Psylocke is killed by a team of ninja assassins.
But at the last moment she uses her formidable psychic powers to implant herself into the body of one of the ninjas.
So you end up with a powerful telepath who can also kick the crap out of you with deadly martial arts skill. Is Olivia up for the challenge??
What do YOU think of this casting??
