Uncanny X-Men Cosplay: Psylocke (Linda Le) Cosplay 10 MAR 2013

The beautiful and deadly psychic ninja Psylocke is brought to life by popular cosplay and gamer girl Linda Le, probably best known by her online handle, Vampy!

Over the years various writers have certainly put her character through the wringer, but at the start of it all, creator Chris Claremont’s precognitive ninja played supporting character to her fraternal twin brother, Captain Britain, even substituting every now and then for him. Later on she became the mutant superheroine Psylocke, who developed telepathic abilities and then later acquired Jean’s Grey’s telekinesis.

Known for her psychic blades, Psylocke is nevertheless a warrior who can really get into your head!

In her most recent outing, following the aftermath of Second Coming, Psylocke (along with Deadpool, Fantomex, and Archangel) is selected by Wolverine to be a member of the new X-Force, the sole condition being that no one must learn of the team’s existence. Psylocke has been seen using her telepathy to help Warren control the “Archangel” persona in his mind, which has led to the two rekindling their previous relationship. The team’s first mission is to locate and kill Apocalypse, who has been reborn. After the events of SCHISM, while Psylocke has decided to stay on Utopia with Cyclops’ team, she also secretly stays on X-Force to help whenever Wolverine requests. Cyclops also places Psylocke in charge of a new X-Men Security team, asking her to be his spy and spy-hunter.

During the Dark Angel Saga, the Jean Grey of the Age of Apocalypse universe opened up Psylocke’s mind, allowing her to tap into a previously untapped power. Writer Rick Remender confirms that Psylocke is now an Omega Level telepath. She also willingly gives up her capability to feel sorrow and regret as part of a bargain to save Fantomex from death at the hands of Skinlessman.
