Heaven's to Betsy!

Oh Marvel, why oh why do I let you get to me? After all the kerfuffle about the Mary Jane statue, you would think that I would have learned my lesson. But as Guy once exclaimed in a joyful tussle with Kilowog..."I NEVER learn!"

Way back when, Betsy Braddock was introduced to the X-Men, as Brian Braddock's twin sister. Brian of course is Captain Britain. Betsy wanted to be, but muffed her chance. Her blonde hair was also turned purple for some reason, and I'm not even going to go into the whole thing with Mojo. Anyway...she was this rather reserved and demure British young lady, who was a telepath, and used this rather neat butterfly effect when she used her powers. She also wore a very frilly pink costume.

Betsy was with the X-men when they all ended up in Australia adn then went through the trial thingie that was some sort of plot device with Roma. It is all very convoluted and ended up with her being put into the body of a Japanese assassin type named Kwannon, who ended up with HER old body.

So now Betsy, also known as Psylocke, is now a hot Ninja, running around in a deep blue Ninja suit, that is basically like Elektra's, except that it isn't red, being slutty and hitting on Scott. Then she gets a crimson dagger tatooed over her eye and can blend in with shadows and stuff, and she hooks up with Angel, then dumps him, and gets beat up by Sabretooth, and is killed off, but come back and so on and so on.

You know...typical day at the office for the X-men.

So Marvel in its infinite wisdom, has decided to bring out a statue of her. In the teeniest little weesiest bikini possible, posing with a sword of all things.

Gosh that's terrible. In fact it is so terrible that it almost makes the Mary Jane statue look tasteful by comparison. Never mind the fact that there is more fabric in the label of her little bikini than in the actual suit itself. Never mind that each of her thighs are larger than her whole torso.

You know what really gets me enraged? Those are the UGLIEST SHOES ON THE PLANET! How is the average fanboy supposed to be aroused by this cheesy piece of porcelain, when she is wearing such hideous shoes? She didn't have something a little more attractive in her closet?

Oh Psylocke, you poor poor dear.

Is it just me, or is it the picture, or does that piece of flesh connecting her left breast to her shoulder look like that webbing frogs have between her toes?

'Cause, y'know, I'm pretty sure I've got muscle in that bit of me...

God that's some pretty ugly cheese cake. I wish I could see the face better, it looks all distorted. Maybe it's the gale force winds blowing her hair like that...

That's supposed to be Psylocke?

...Has she EVER worn a costume like this? I mean, her usual costume doesn't leave much to the imagination as is, why bother going skimpier? And she isn't using her powers, or carrying/wearing any other distinctive visual character cues.

My reaction to this is mostly confusion. Why bother getting a cheesecake statue of a character you have the hots for, if you can't even tell who it's supposed to be?

It's just pretty hideous all around isn't it?
