BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Dr. James Braddock Sr. and Mrs. Braddock had three children, Jamie (the eldest), and twins, Brian and Elizabeth. Betsy initially possessed precognition powers, and later developed telepathic abilities as a consequence of being born a mutant. When Betsy and Brian were in their late teens, their parents were killed in an explosion in Dr. Braddock's laboratory caused by the malfunctioning computer Mastermind.

Brian Braddock pursued post-graduate studies in Physics at Thames University, while Betsy worked as a charter pilot. Soon after Brian became the hero Captain Britain, Betsy alerted him that their brother Jamie had been injured while testing his racing car in the grounds of Braddock Manor, apparently an attack rather than an accident. Betsy flew Brian back to the Manor, but their plane was downed as they neared the crash by the psychic powers of Dr. Synne; luckily both inside survived the crash. Dr. Synne subsequently mind controlled Betsy into seeing her brothers as hideous monsters, causing her to attack them, but they managed to overpower her.

Betsy quit the charter business and took up modeling. To set herself apart, she began dying her hair purple and her career took off.

Some time later, with her psychic powers growing and after Brian had departed overseas to continue his studies, Betsy was recruited into S.T.R.I.K.E.'s Psi Division (S.T.R.I.K.E. being Special Tactical Response for International Key Emergencies, the U.K.'s equivalent of the U.N.'s S.H.I.E.L.D. agency), by Agent Matthew (later renamed Gabriel), with whom she pursued a brief romance.

While Brian was overseas at college, Betsy was recruited into S.T.R.I.K.E.'s Psi Division. During her time there, she would develop romantic relationships with fellow S.T.R.I.K.E. members. While working with S.T.R.I.K.E. one of her assignments was to infiltrate the Hellfire Club (her father was the Black Bishop of the London branch).
