Presented here as she appeared in X-Men #6 is Elizabeth Braddock, the mutant telepath code-named Psylocke, in her classic ninja stealth costume. In a story entitled "Farther Still", the X-Man known as Wolverine is being hunted by the villainous Omega Red, Matsuo Tsurayababa and Sabretooth. These evil mutants want him because they believe he is the only living being with knowledge of where to find the Carbonadium synthesizer, a device that will prevent Omega Red from having to steal the life forces of others in order to survive. Matsuo tells his partners that he has an X-Men searching for their missing wounded teammate. As Gambit, Rogue and Psylocke battle Hand ninjas while looking for Wolverine, Gambit is knocked unconscious. Betsy apologizes to Rogue saying that she is not in control of her actions before unexpectedly using her psychic powers to knock her out. The female ninja is forced to betray her friend because she is helpless to follow a previously implanted hypnotic suggestion placed by Matsuo Tsurayababa when he captured her in Japan. After interrogating the X-Men for information on Wolverine's whereabouts with no results, Sabretooth takes the hypnotized Psylocke with him on the hunt. As Wolverine walks through the sewers beneath the compound with his former partner Maverick, he realizes that Psylocke is leading Sabretooth to them through their psychic bond. Sabretooth and Psylocke find their prey and a battle ensues. The fight ends quickly with Sabretooth and Psylocke carrying the seemingly unconscious forms of Maverick and Wolverine, but appearances can be deceiving.
