      Kwannon isn’t Betsy. It’s the same look but it’s not the same character. Hell even Betsy isn’t even remotely similar to who she’s been all these years and she is the same character. All they did was make both worse

        Explain what is there to like about Betsy outside of being a coombait?

          Far as I remember, she was originally the British Jean Grey, someone with a lot of potential and power that she struggled her life to contain but gave her a sense of empathy that kept her from being a stuck up bitch like the rest of the X-men could unintentionally walk into. She also wasn't portrayed as scared or threatened by her powers like Jean was, considering she was in STRIKE, and between that and the glamorous aesthetics of the psionic butterfly power, she was portrayed as the nicer but potentially deadlier of the Braddock twins. Brian would have no patience for your bullshit, but Betsy losing patience with your bullshit would be a messier experience.

          Then when she got bodyswapped, they parleyed her long time experience with psionics powers to make the cool looking psyblade and changed up her personality to be more "mature" and serious and at times at odds with her increasing level of personal aggression and emotional outbursts both from Kwannon's lingering influence and her increasing need to focus her psionic powers into far more outright lethal methods via brainstabbing.

          At least, that's what I think people used to like about her. Nowadays, ever since they split both Betsy and Kwannon, it feels like all the self-control and self-doubting portions of Psylocke went to Kwannon while the residual increased aggression and power refinement evolved Betsy into a self-important bitch on par with Jean Grey. But, hey, maybe people like that? I can't account for their tastes though, they already have Emma Frost and Jean Grey and a dozen other psychics if they wanted another bitchy girlboss psychic lady mutant.

              Yeah, I know it was a retcon, but I mentioned it just cause that's part of how they justified why she started turning into purple Elektra.

                I think the Kwannon storyline was stupid and just made things complicated, just like a lot of things in the 90.

                In fairness, it this was unintentional. Fabian Nicieza thought Psylocke's transformation was still unexplained and he was finally revealing what had happened. Then when they realized we already had an explanation, he had to do another story to try and fit everything together, and the continuity patch left it all stupid and complicated.

                But it's been very effectively memoryholed, there are a lot of casuals who think Kwannon existed as a character before ninja Betsy happened, I've even seen people here who though she had fans.

            they don't it be one of the consistent critiques of Howard's books is that she writes Betsy as a massive bitch

            I feel the opposite. The self doubting was dialed up to 10 with the new Betsy as she is far more timid and written with white guilt syndrome by having her apologize for being in Kwannons body even though she was an equal victim in the matter and had no choice to go back in her original body. Which made it annoying because now its written were she's being coddled by others going "there there" for some cheap pathos. Not to mention the CB title made her this weird stoic type she never was written as before to continue this apology tour narrative.

        I don't think so at least Marvel will do everything else under the sun before that point it's the only reason Kwannon is now a character with no explanation

          it's hilarous, probably the most shameless "have their cake and eat it too". even ultra woke Marvel knows sexy ninja girl is more valuable than the captain Karen Tini writes

                even if it ends Tini's working relationship with Marvel I kinda doubt Jorden D White will make Brain Captain Britain again the only way that going to happen is if the MCU has Captain Britain as a character in a future film who is Brain Braddock

                Ah I thought you were talking about Tini but I think there's a decent chance he'll be CB again probably beside CB Betsy since a lot of these things end up reversed or at least someone may possibly write Betsy decently

        There was nothing unique about Betsy hence why they gave her Captain Britain's name. And despite Betsy being Captain Britain, Betsy didn't inherit any of the Captain Britain powers. Nothing but standard telepathy and telekinesis.

        Pretty sure Betsy was never originally a cool but conflicted professional type, that's only a thing that happened when she got Kwannon's body, she had a history and character before that happened

          That was her motto for the longest time even before yellow face if you read the outback era. Kwannon wasn't a character to begin with and all they did was take traits from betsy even from the beggining.

    Marvel is absolutely not letting something like that bodyswap ever happen again
    Closest thing you'll get to that is to have both Betsy and Kwannon be merged into one being, and that will still tick people off (also good luck finding out how to do that)

    No, the bodyswap was retarded and should never have happened. Original Betsy was perfectly fine, and her personality just completly changed in the 90s when she became Blue Elektra.
