Luckily for fans, we will get to see what happens to Psylocke following the events of Apocolypse as it has been confirmed that Olivia Munn will be reprising her role in the upcoming X-Men film.

Psylocke, real name Betsy Braddock, is a trained ninja and assassin with powerful telepathic abilities. She can read minds and use telekinesis like Professor Xavier and Jean Grey, but she’s also a lethal swordswoman. Using her telepathic powers, she can create a blade made of pure psychic energy.

Psylocke first appeared in 1976’s “Captain Britain #1” with blue eyes and blonde hair. There, she was a pilot and Captain Britain’s sister. In the late ’80s, she was brought into the X-Men universe and radically redesigned with purple hair and prominent Japanese features.
“I tell myself that if I do it… If I do take lives in the course of doing what’s right… Then at least it means other people won’t have to. Like I’m… Like I’m saving innocent souls. But that’s a lie. That’s lazy guilt-dodging bollocks. The truth is this: I rejoined X-Force because I couldn’t bear to stay away. My name is Elizabeth Braddock, and I’m an addict.” – Psylocke
