Psylocke Psaturday #2: Down you go, Synne make me strong

Panels from Captain Britain v.1 #9 (Marvel UK, December 8, 1976), script by Chris Claremont, pencils by Herb Trimpe, inks by Fred Kida, colors by George Roussos, letters by Irving Watanabe

In her second appearance, Betsy's hair color has now changed to auburn. She displays her first aptitude for handling edged weapons. The villain is Doctor Synne (not to be confused with Doctor Syn, Alias The Scarecrow. Also, Claremont takes next week's title from a line in Macbeth (or maybe, he's seen Star Trek at one point or another).

So next week will feature Dr. Helen Noel as played by Marianna Hill? (No problem there...)

Bully said...

Chris, that'd be a whole 'nother feature! (No problem there...)

"Only Captain Britain would have the power to restrain her."

Either him or maybe, y'know, two grown men working together if Jamie recovers from his sudden case of vertigo. She's not a psychic Asian ninja yet.

(Maybe if you're nice to Chip there Mrs. Potts could help you out too.)
