Introduced in 1976, Psylocke has been a solid part of the X-Men and various other mutant teams ever since. Her abilities are incredible, and she easily holds her own against some of the strongest villains Marvel has to offer.
Betsy has recently undergone a brilliant redesign in Tini Howard’s incredible run on Excalibur. Having been given the Amulet of Right from her dying brother, she is currently is sporting one of the best Captain Britain costumes ever.
Yet, for the longest time Betsy was associated with the classic Psylocke costume. Unfortunately, that look was just a leotard, a sash and some knee-high boots. Of course, there was various accessories she picked up along the way, but overall, the costume lacked any imagination.
With the casting of Oliva Munn for X-Men: Apocalypse, Bryan Singer had the chance to put his own spin on the classic suit. Surprisingly, in a franchise that thrives on having X-Men in black leather, Psylocke kept her comic-accurate suit. But of course, they just had to add a boob window.
Despite how uninspiring her outfit is, it still managed to influence the look of our next hero.
